#178 Use A Stamp For Your Sentiment

Welcome to Challenge #178
Our theme for this challenge is pretty simple.  All you need to do is use a rubber or clear stamp for your sentiment.

We are sponsored by Inspired By Stamping
The winner of the challenge will win a $25 Gift Card to their store.

You can make any type of project you want for the challenge, just make sure to include a stamped sentiment (no digital sentiments for this challenge)

Challenge Rules:
1.  As you might guess from our name - we require a SENTIMENT that is appropriate for the theme/challenge.  If you make a card and put the sentiment on the inside instead of the front, you need to include a picture on your blog post that shows us the sentiment. 
2. Please mention Aud Sentiments and create a link to us.  When you enter your link at Inlinkz, it needs to go directly to your project, not just to your blog's home page.

3. You may enter up to 5 times, but all entries need to be new & posted after the start of our challenge.  

HAVE FUN!

#177 Aud Sentiments 7th Birthday Party!!

Happy Birthday to Aud Sentiments!

We have been hosting challenges every two weeks for 7 years! 
It seems like just yesterday when we hosted our first challenge.

We are so appreciative of everyone who has joined us in our challenges. Over the years we have seen so many gorgeous, creative, beautiful and sometimes even funny creations.  Thank you for sharing your lovely creations with us.

Our challenge theme is Use a Birthday Sentiment or the #7 on your project.

We are doing things a little differently this time.  
We will have TWO winners. 

Prize #1 will go to the best card using a birthday sentiment or the #7

Prize #2 will go to the best birthday project that is NOT a card.
This means we want to see tags, bags, altered items, scrapbook layouts, banners, etc. Don't forget the sentiment!

Each winner will receive a gift certificate to the online store of their choice.
