Shopping Our Stash #142 - Sentiment(s) only

Good morning my friends! It's the start of a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week, we want you to only use a sentiment, or sentiments on your card or project. Only stamps with words. How hard could that be? Hmmmmm, a bit. But I over came. Sort of. Actually, I loved this card by Heidi Van Laar, so I CASEd it. Here's my version:

Here's the inside:

And that big speech bubble? I created it following Savannah's tutorial video at the Virtual Smooches blog. Seriously easy to do. I even went a step further and added a white frame around it with some scrap paper. Bonus!
