Taking a lesson from a very talented co-Design Team member, Vicki (Stamped Smiles), I've decided to show you how versatile a single sentiment can be. When I first received this Pet Sympathy sentiment from DRS Designs, I didn't think I'd have much occasion to use it:

Unfortunately, I almost immediately had two friends lose pets, so the sentiment received more ink than anticipated. This card was created for a friend whose dog passed away:
Stamps by DRS Designs: Pet Sympathy Greeting , Dog Paw Easy Background , Square Silhouette Flowers Ribbon Slide. Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Versamark. Cardstock: Brocade Blue, Black, Textured Silver, GP110 white. Accessories: pet ribbon, silver EP.
As I was inking the sentiment, I realized that because of the way the sentiment was organized, it didn't always need to be used only on sympathy cards. The first portion of the sentiment is appropriate for use on any pet-themed card. So, I decided to go with a happier theme and create a new pet card with the inside panel reading 'Congratulations on your new kitten':
Stamps by DRS Designs: Pet Sympathy Greeting ,Happy Cat Sitting , Large Original Plaid . Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Pretty in Pink. Cardstock: Basic Grey, Pretty in Pink, GP110 white. Accessoried: Prismacolor pencils, turpenoid, circle Nestabilities, Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon, scallop border punch, white gel pen.

Don't you love versatile stamps? They are a great way to stretch a craft budget dollar, so check out other DRS sentiments to see how many different uses you can find for these wonderful sayings!
