So the Saying Goes...

DRS Designs is sponsoring this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge which is so appropriately themed 'Quotations', a challenge to create a card showcasing a sentiment. Here are a few of my favorites from DRS. First, a sympathy-for-those-frustrating-days card:

Stamps by DRS Designs: Chew the Restraints G051, Vicki's Versatile Background H369. Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Cool Caribbean. Ink: Chocolate Chip, Cool Caribbean. Accessories: twine.

Next, an uplifting sentiment card:

Stamps: Creating Yourself H558, Lots of Lines Background H366, Leo the Dancing Pig D718. Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, black, Purely Pomegranate, Papertrey white, vellum. Ink: Memento black, Pretty in Pink, Copics. Accessories: scallop border punch, white orandy ribbon, Long rectangle Nestabilities, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Stardust glitter pen.

Who said pigs can't fly? It's all in how you create yourself. For Leo's wings, I used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch and then accented them with a clear glitter pen:

Be sure to check out all the DRS sentiments -- they carry the whole spectrum from humorous to deeply moving wording. They definitely have something to say!
