Week 46 ~ Anything Goes

Morning everyone and welcome to another Penny Black Challenge, wow can't believe we are at week 46 already ~ how the time flies... Thanks to everyone who joined in on Nats Sketch last week, wow what a fabulous response we had too... and you all created some wonderful work again.

Don't forget to pop back later to see who has won the gorgeous stamps last week.

So onto this weeks challenge

Anything Goes

Now this one should be an easy one... or if you want to challenge yourself to something new.. then let your creative run wild. Your limitations are endless... you can create a card, altered art, bag, notebook, candle, box, etc... or even use a past challenge theme if you like.

The only RULE is to ensure you use at least 1 PB image/sentiment on your card.

We have another fabulous prize this week from our sponsors

The winner will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday. All you need to do to enter is leave a comment herewith a link to your entry....so we can come visit you.

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

Here's this weeks fabulous inspiration for you by the Design Team:


Have a great weekend

Happy Crafting

Hugs From Design Team
