FREEBIE SENTIMENT
Since we require a sentiment on your project, Ginny H from our Design Team is providing a sentiment every week for you!  You are welcome to copy and paste any or all of the sentiments for your personal use, or use it as inspiration for your design.  If you use Ginny's sentiment, she would love it if you leave her a comment, either here or on her website As.I.Do.Rodos.
 Thank you Ginny H for a new Sentiment [I think she is hinting we might want to get an earlier start this year!  And she is right!]  
There is a new FREEBIE every Thursday!
