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

Now for some super 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.
