September challenge - Add a sentiment

A very good morning to you all, welcome to our September challenge where this month our theme is..........
********Add a Sentiment********

It's as simple as that, all we ask is that you remember our basic rules listed below.

We are a stamping challenge so must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, it can be a stamped image/s, large sentiment or quote.........the one exception is Penny Black Stickeroos. But no digi images and entries using them WILL NOT be eligible for prizes. It so upsets us to see names come out in the draw who are not eligible for a prize because they have not read the rules. You can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges and use any make of stamp.

On to another super array of prizes............


Penny Black invite you to explore their creative world and see for yourself why their rubber stamps, stickers, beautiful papers for scrapbooking, cardmaking and stamp crafting are everyone’s favourites. Their products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever. If you would like to be one of the first to hear about new products from Penny Black please click here to join the free club, plus their Facebook is full of activity and news.

This months prizes from them are a set of Bear stamps, a Christmas sentiment die and a fun cling stamp.
