Pals Blog Hop - It's the Sentiment that Counts"

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects where “It’s the Sentiment that Counts.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! has offered religious sentiments over the years.  I can honestly say that I have never purchased them - not sure why, but just never wanted them.  I have to admit, the For Unto Us Cling Stamp Set was one that I HAD to have! 
I struggled to come up with a layout for my card today. I knew I wanted to showcase this sentiment, but just couldn’t come up with a design I liked.  Then, I saw a card made by Mary Fish (#1 on the hop below) and realized my search was over!

I just love the mixed font and how the sentiments are paired. The entire set is like that - a total of 4 different sentiment pairs.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on October 14th when our theme is “Tag, You’re It!” Participants will showcase tags or 3D items that will be great for gifts for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.
