Sentimental Sundays #9: Lift Someone's Spirits

Even though the days are longer, the Sundays seem to get here so quickly!  Welcome, everyone, to another Sentimental Sunday.  This week at Sentimental Sunday, our theme is: encouragement and support.

Have I mentioned how lucky I am to be able to be surrounded by the gals at Sentimental Sundays?  We have challenges there every week, but I am only asking them to create for two challenges out of the month, but guess what? They all created something for this week's challenge! They really are a great bunch :)  Make sure to head over to the Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog to see the fantastic creations by the design team and to grab the freebie.

For this week's challenge, I've created two cards.  The first card is for the Crafty Creations Challenge (We want to see you shine) and the Allsorts Challenge (Embossing).  The second card is for the CAS-tastic Challenge (yellow, blue, neutral) and the Papertake Weekly Challenge (sketch).  The lighting was bad and the DP on the second card really is blue!! It just seems to be showing up as black : /

Both of them use sentiments from the "Amongst the Stars" digital sentiment set that will be released on July 1, 2010 at the Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection Store.  Make sure to tune in for some sneak peaks of the new images by the Whimsy Stamps design team starting June 28th!

Sentiments: Whimsy Stamps Amongst the Stars Digital Sentiments set (releasing July 1); Paper: BasicGrey; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, Pendant die, Stickles
