Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 175

Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 175

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
We weren't spooked at all be your gorgeous creations last week, they were all far too cute to spook! But there can only be one winner of the 'frightful flight' PB stamp and that is....
Janice(9)
and here is her card...

Please contact Kath who will organise delivery of your prize.
Comment from Kath....I just wanted to come on and comment on some upsetting comments which appeared on last week's challenge...let me just say that we truly appreciate that you take the time to join in the challenges and the design team do their best to leave a comment on each and every entry.  We all have lives outwith blogging and challenges and are inclined to leave our commenting until later in the week to make sure that we don't miss anyone out.  The design team work their cotton socks off each and every week to inspire you just because they love sharing their love of All Things Penny Black with you and receive no payment for the time and effort they give to Penny Black Saturday.  I apologise if anyone feels they have been slighted in any way but let's face it folks...there are far important things going on in the world to worry about.

So onto this weeks challenge...

It's Sketch Time
Drawn up by our talented teamie Nat.

We don't mind if you flip it, turn it, rotate it or turn it inside out!
Just as long as we can see the basic sketch!

As always it is up to you what you create. All we ask is that you use at least ONE PENNY BLACK IMAGE, LARGE SENTIMENT OR STICKEROO. To enter leave your name and a direct link to your entry with Mr Linky so that we can come and visit you and if you don't have a blog just e-mail your entry to Kath who will be only too happy to pop it on the blog for you and you will be entered in the prize draw.

This week we have 4 rolls of ribbon of the winner's choice from our regular sponsor
Fantastic Ribbons.


Here's what the design team came up with, we hope we inspire you to join in!

So now it's over to you...Happy Crafting!
