Penny Black Saturday....Week 93

Hi Everyone and welcome to another Penny Black Saturday Challenge.....gorgeous cards for last week's Spring Colours Challenge and isn't it lovely to see the beautiful Spring weather we have been having....long may it continue and also it was so nice this week to see some new Penny Black lovers joining in the fun.

Congratulations Tania.....if you e-mail me (Kath) I will pass your details onto 1-2-3 Stitch who will arrange for you to spend your $20 voucher

Before we move onto this week's challenge....a little reminder about the rules of the challenges.
We have noticed recently that some folks are entering cards without any Penny Black images on them....we are called Penny Black Saturday because we are challenging you to make cards and projects with 
PENNY BLACK STAMPS...

1. Each card or Project must contain at least one Penny Black image
and that includes Stickeroos
2.  Penny Black Sentiment stamps will count as an image but only if they are the larger sentiment stamps which are used as the focal point on your project.

3.  Cards with any other images and a small Penny Black sentiment will not be included in the prize draw.

Challenges are all about having fun...but please have a little consideration for all those who do play by the rules.

So on with this week's challenge which is a fab sketch from our lovely teamie Carole
as always you can interpret the sketch as you wish...flip or rotate it


and Carole has also kindly donated this week's prize
2 Cuttlebug folders for one lucky winner chosen at random and announced next Saturday


All you need to do to enter is leave your name and a link to your entry with Mr Linky so we can come visit you.

If you don't have a blog....just e-mail your entry to me (Kath) and we will be only too happy to pop it on the blog for you.

And as usual our fabulous Design Team have well and truly rocked the sketch.....starting off with

NADINE (Guest Designer)















And it's your turn now.....we look forward to seeing what you create with Carole's sketch.
Happy Crafting

Last Week's Winner

Hi Everyone...it has just been brought to my notice that last week's winner did not in fact have a Penny Black image or sentiment on her card and therefore....according to the rules of the challenge....does not qualify to win the prize.    I normally check when I link the card on the post....but for some reason this week I didn't notice and I apologise....so in fairness to all those who play by the rules....the prize will be redrawn and we will announce the winner of the SU Punch and add it to this post later today.
Hugs from the Design Team
Edited to add...the redrawn winner of the SU Corner Rounder Punch is.....

DRAGONLADY
(Craftydragons)
Congratulations....if you e-mail me (kath)....Valentines will get your punch off in the post
and yes I did check this time.....and there is a gorgeous hedgie image
