August - All creatures great and small

Good morning and welcome to our August challenge where our theme is.....................

*******All Creatures Great and Small*******

Lots of options here be it bugs and butterflies, dogs and cats or maybe some forest or larger animals in the jungle, the choice is yours. All we ask is that you follow your simple rules................

You can use any make of stamp and enter up to three times, but we 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. Please note: If we do not comment on your entry it will be because it does not follow the theme, qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment on third party hosts such as Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Slipcoast. We do not want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who do follow the rules
