The Sentiment Says it All

My card challenge entry of the day is for the amazingly talented group over at The Paper Players.  

The featured Sentiment challenge has inspired me with more designs for the Valentine cards I'll be creating for my office. No, I don't send love cards to my co-workers, I just make many to sell for our department charity event.  Some people bake, I bring the calorie free cards.  
I'm thrilled when I see someone is excited to find the perfect card for their someone special from the variety of cards I make.   You can make a card with hearts, add glitter, maybe a cupid or something...but a Valentine greeting is not complete without the perfect sentiment!

The latest challenge is hosted by one of my favorite stampers, LeAnne.  She will create an amazing project, post it on her blog, and instantly I want to try the style, the technique, or buy whatever she used.  Without reading her blog, how would I ever have known my microwave could be an important tool in my crafts (you'll have to search her blog to find out why - hint - think scrunchy seam binding).  So, hi Players, and hi, LeAnne!  Thanks for letting me play along.
