A freebie for you....

Edited to add new gardening square.jpg address:

I have been playing off and on with making my own sentiments. I love working on the computer and used it extensively when I was working. I have a new copy of Photoshop Elements on my computer and a brand new copy of "Photoshop Elements for Dummies" so I thought, 'how hard could sentiments be?'. The stamp on this card is from Lili of the Valley, the sentiment is from BBF (Bluebirdflats). When I shared this file with a member of my design team, Sheri, she was enthusiastic (maybe just cuz she's me buddy) so I thought I would see what ya'll think. This was my first effort, but it won't be my last. I have half a dozen more made and they will appear on my blog in the future. Please feel free to help yourself if you like it. This will be the first time I've tried anything like this so if it doesn't work, please e-mail me at: and let me know. There are two files, one is a .jpg and one is a .png file. I don't know why the .png file picture is distorted, but it downloaded the right file. My chief tester, Sheri, said it worked for her too. So, here it is. Please let me know if you would like me to keep doing these.
