Using Multiple Sentiments-a Ryan post, too ;)

Happy Sunday! I am sharing a card with multiple sentiments. This set called Be Silly (Hero Arts) has several sentiments and I think they will work together beautifully. It really takes no effort to throw in all the sentiment in one card! The Etched Daisy just makes the card that much more inviting and happy! 
Thinking of you
With the arrangement of placements and colors, the sentiments are great together, huh? I actually hand stitch the "thinking of you always make me smile" with black threads. They are hard to see from the photo, but the card does look prettier and more refined with the hand stitching. And the best thing is I don't really use the sewing table...unless....
Thanks for stopping by ;)
PS: please come back tomorrow as I have a guest design project that I am super excited to share! I know you'll love that challenge. too!

Gorgeous card Virginia. Love the hand sewing and those sentiments. I always have trouble stamping those block sentiments. Maybe I need to try a color ink instead of using the black.

Ryan is hilarious as always. Thanks for the laugh this morning.

How clever to use multiple sentiments, Virginia. I've never thought to do it. The daisy and hearts are perfect and so is your color combo. The hand stitching adds emphasis. Ryan is funny as always :)

Hey Girl,

I am being lazy. I am wondering if there is an Operation Write Home for Canadian soldiers.

I suspect if anyone knows, it might be you.
