Week 57 - Swirls

Morning everyone and welcome to another Penny Black Challenge......thank you all for joining in the fun last week....another fabulous response and gorgeous Red..White and Blue cards from everyone.

Don't forget to pop back later to see who has won
the gorgeous stamp from Sharni & Clair

So let's get on with this week's challenge


We would like you to get creative with swirls on your project....stamping...embossing
or die cuts....get your thinking caps on and we look forward to seeing what you create
As always...you can make a card..altered art...bag...notebook...box etc
the only rule being that you use at least one Penny Black
image or sentiment.

And we have another fabulous prize for you this week
kindly donated by the lovely Jacqui at Simply Create

this gorgeous Penny Black Image....Frolic

Simply Create is a fabulous craft store situated in the small town of Alford in the heart of rural Aberdeenshire....too far for many of you I know.. but if you do live nearby....it is well worth a visit and unfortunately for my wallet....it is only a 20 minute drive from where I live

The winner will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday....all you need to do to enter is to leave a comment here with 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 we will be only too happy to pop it on the blog for you.

And once again our fabulous Design Team have gone all out to
give you loads of inspiration......


So it's time to get those Penny Blacks looked out....and happy crafting everyone
