Remember when I said I didn't need any more paper? No? Me either. There's always something new out there to try. I was excited to see a DCWV pack (A Type of Art) that contains all different sizes, fonts, and colors of text. Near the top of the stack were sheets with the alphabet and numbers up to ten and cute "A is for..." type sentiments. In Googling to find the name of the stack, I'm tickled to find out that I got it for a mere $6 at JoAnn on clearance when it was just released about 6 weeks ago! That must have been a mistake.
I made twenty-some of these cards using the various sentiments. Only a few of the squares were illogical for card making and had to be left out. The colors in the stack are fun and I even think I'm going to save a few of the pages for scrapbooking. It's got a design with text from Huckleberry Finn and I've yet to scrapbook the trip my family took to Mark Twain's house in CT over Christmas vacation. There's also some great Shakespeare text, but I already scrapped my trip the the Globe and I missed this summer's Shakespeare on the Green in my town. That might become cards!
