You are welcome to copy and paste any or all 
of the sentiments for your personal use.  
Two things I would ask of you are 
to give credit to Ginny H if you use her word art and 
leave a comment for her to acknowledge 
her time and effort.  
I have linked her name above to her website, or you can leave a comment on this post if you like!  Thank you!
As incentive for you to use one of the sentiments on one or more of your entries, if you put a GH (for Ginny H) behind your name on your entry, we will choose a winner and SPOTLIGHT your project at the start of our next challenge. 
ENJOY!

We have loved having ADFD as our sponsor - thank you so much for providing our winner's prize and for providing the DT with images for inspiration pieces! 
All of the projects by the DT are using artwork provided by ADFD - you can find these specific images or just go check out what is in her shop thru the link above the logo!




And now, to provide inspiration for the Holiday theme - here are the projects by Team B - all using images from our sponsor  A Day For Daisies.  Each of the DT's personal web sites are linked so you can easily find additional photos and information on their projects - or leave them words of encouragement!

Quick Summary of our Rules

You are not required to use anything specific, just the sentiment.  If you make a card and put the sentiment on the inside instead of the front, you need to include a picture [in your blog post] that shows us the sentiment.
2) You can enter up to 5 times and enter as many other challenges as you like
3) Other details regarding our challenges can be found by going to the tab at the top of the page titled "Challenge Rules".
