CSS Treasure Chest Hop...... Let's Get Wordy

Hello and welcome to another StampTV CSS Treasure Chest Blog Hop.  You should have arrived from Carolina's  blog.  If not to start at the beginning go to Vicki's blog.  You can see the entire list of participants on StampTV.  I would hate for you to miss any of the beautiful creations that the CSS ladies have to share.

Tonight's Teasuire Chest challenge is Get Wordy.  To use a sentiment or quote as the main focal point.  I don't normally use sentiments or quotes as focal points so this one had me stumped for a bit.  Then the other night as I was falling off to sleep it hit me and I knew what I wanted to do.  I had a hard time not getting up right then and making the card, but as I had to get up early I waiting until the next night.   Have you every been to the site Wordle?  It is a cool site where you can type in text and it will jumble it up in a cool way.  I wanted to recreate a wordle of sorts and decided on a thank you theme.  I picked out a bunch of sentiments and got busy.  Here is the result.

This was so fun to make, now I want to make one with birthday wishes.  I will list all of the stamp sets (it was a lot) I used at the bottom of this post.  I am the last stop on the hop tonight I hope you have enjoyed all of the beautiful creations everyone had to share.  If you would like to join in this challenge we would love to see what you create so make sure to post it in the StampTV gallery and let us know about it in this thread on StampTV.



Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (June 28th), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!
Thank you for stopping by.
