ONE PENNY BLACK IMAGE, LARGE SENTIMENT or STICKEROO.

And talking of prizes...
a huge thank you to our wonderful sponsors for their generosity in providing this week's prize. Yes one lucky winner, who will be chosen at random, and announced next Saturday will receive a $20 voucher to spend at the 1-2-3 Stitch online store. There's loads of crafty stuff to choose from, including our favourite Penny Blacks!
