July challenge - Anything goes with a sentiment

Welcome to our July challenge and this month we have a nice easy theme for you.................

******Add a sentiment******

Any type of project and theme so long as there is a sentiment clearly visible on your work. Usual rules apply, you can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges, use any make of stamp......but can I please remind you.......

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 are Penny Black Stickeroos. But no digi images and entries using them WILL NOT be eligible for prizes or GDT spots. 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. 

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.
