Sentimentally Yours at Corrosive Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  Have just been out for Sunday lunch with the family for our daughter's birthday.  Had a lovely carvery meal and now we are all stuffed.  Think it is time for an afternoon nap but thought I would get this posted first.

It is time for the start of a new challenge over at Corrosive Challenges.
Our sponsor for the month of July is the wonderfully witty, superbly sarcastic Graphicat Designs.

**Graphicat Stamps are stamps for the light hearted, good natured, sarcastic beast in all of us. We have our own line of Digital and Rubber stamps, mostly based around humour. I have always thought a card was supposed to cheer someone up, and when making my own cards, with all the wicked cool images out there to use now, I was always looking for the sarcastic, fun twist of a sentiment.... and when I couldn't find them I started making my own! They were so popular that I started my own line. If you check out our website, you will find we also carry lots of other stamps and paper crafting products. We are based in Canada!! Which is why we are so funny of course! Sure hope you can pop by to check us out at www.graphicatstamps.com**

Cheri has generously offered a $15 voucher for use in the store to our July winner!

This fortnight we have a fun new theme that is a perfect fit with our sponsor - "Sentimentally Yours".  We want to see a sentiment on the front of your creation.  It can be used in conjunction with an image or used all by itself as a focal point; either is acceptable.

We also have a little extra treat for you today!  We are previewing the new layout over from Graphicat Sketches before their challenge starts tomorrow.  And as a bonus, anyone who combines this sketch with their challenge entry for us will get an extra entry for the prize draw here!  Simply link a second time (to your general blog) and type "SKETCH" after your name.  Don't forget to enter over at Graphicat Sketches too for a shot at their prize as well if you do!  You can see the sneak peek here now and get a head start.  You'll see it in some of the design team creations too!

Here is my DT creation using a sentiment from Graphicat and the sketch.

I used papers from Papermania and coredinations cardstock to create the background and square panels.  The sentiment is from our sponsor and I made the little fairy panel using a freebie stamp that I got in a magazine ages ago.  I added some ribbon and a small flower to the bottom.  Although you can't see it very well I did add some glamour dust to the fairy wings and to the centre of the square panels.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Moving Along With The Times - Sentiment as main focus
Catch the Bug - Anything goes

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your lovely creations.

So cute Mags. I love the purple and the double bow. I always have trouble with those. I love your take on the sketch as well. Great sentiment!

Brilliant sentiment Mags! Great layout too!! xx

Great job with the sketch, Mags. I love all the purple (it's my favorite color). That sentiment is perfect with your little fairy, she is so sweet. Very pretty bow, and love that touch of sparkle on all the sqaures.

Fantastic design. Love all of the purples and adore how you've done just one panel with an image...looks so cool.
