Sentiment-ally yours...

This week we are focusing on sentiments but before we get to that, we have to say goodbye to our September Guest DT, Jane! We've enjoyed having her with us this month and she has another creation to share with you this week  - we'll get to that in just a minute.

It is also the last week and last challenge of the month so be sure to have all your September entries in by Saturday at 10:00 pm EST to be eligible for the prize drawing and the September Top Ten.

Ok here's your new challenge. The only stamp that you can use is a sentiment stamp. You can use any papers, embellishments, etc. but no stamps unless it is a sentiment.

Let's see what the team did with this challenge:

Jane is giving us a look at the inside of her card. Be sure to visit her blog to see the beautiful outside!

Definitely beautiful cards posted above. I was surprised at how challenging this was. I thought it would be easy, and I got started just fine, but I did find myself reaching for my stamp sets and slapping my hand away quite often!

This was my first ever challenge and fun to do! It was hard to come up with an idea that didn't involve much stamping! I enjoyed it and will definitely be back for another challenge. Thanks to the DT and all the participants for sharing their beautiful artwork and great ideas.

This was my fav challenge this month!

Jen Rubio said...

Yaaay for me!! (I participated in the challenge this week!) BUT boo!! because I messed up and did use an additional stamp for "kissing" technique. I didn't even realize I did this until I was posting the details and explanation on how to do the "kissing" technique. I hope you don't mind that I decided to post and link anyway, since I didn't want to go to all that effort for nothing, lol.

Melanie said...

Yeah!! i'm finally participating again! I did have to bend a rules a little.
