there are still some folks who are not playing by the rules...we are what it says on the tin...a challenge blog for Penny Black products and we can only allow entries with Penny Black images to qualify for the prize draw...so if you upload a card with an image from another stamp company as the main focal point with a small Penny Black sentiment...it will be removed...
