Week 44 ~ GIFT

Morning everyone and welcome to another Penny Black Challenge, thanks to everyone who joined our Easter challenge last week ~ lots of gorgeous entries as always.

Dont forget to pop back later to see who won the PB ~ Number Set Stamps.

So onto this weeks challenge:
We'd like to see you create a Gift for someone special ~ a loved one, friend, relative.
Here's some ideas: Bag, Box, Candle, Tag, Tin... and these are just a few... so let your creativity take over and go create.

But remember you MUST include at least 1 PB image/sentiment on your work

We have another gorgeous prize for you this week
Now how could I resist purchasing these new yummy PB stickers for 1 lucky winner this week whilst on a shopping spree .... aren't they gorgeous.

If you would like to win this wonderful prize leave a comment with a link to your work and the winner will be announced next Saturday.
If you don't have a blog you can e-mail your entry to either Tracie or Kath and we will be only too happy to upload it onto the blog for you.

The Design Team have created some fabulous inspiration for you again this week.

What brilliant examples we have been spoilt with this week.

It is quite a change for me to do something other than a tag or a card and I really enjoyed it.

Hopefully you can find my gift
