Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 106

Hi everyone and welcome to Penny Black Saturday
 and before we do anything else....I have to hold my hands up...grovel and apologise for not making any mention on last week's post of the prize on offer..what a numptie...blame it on a senior moment...why didn't someone e-mail me but looks like I am not the only numptie....none of the girls on the team noticed either...don't feel so bad now. 

So the winner of last week's challenge chosen at random is......

(Always With a Heart)
and here is Jules' fabulous card
Jules always includes a heart somewhere on her cards....can you spot it

Congratulations Jules if you e-mail me (kath) I will pass your details onto
 Jim at 1-2-3 Stitch
who will get in touch with you about using your
$20 voucher to spend online at
and a big thank you to you all for joining in the fun with Janneke's fab sketch....loved seeing all the different takes on it...lots of fabulous creations

Time to move on to this week's challenge

we know that now summer has arrived (wish someone would tell the weather)....it's time to think of taking time off work to head off and find some sun or perhaps just a break away to recharge the old batteries...so we would love you to share your take on this week's challenge.

As always it is entirely up to you what you create...a card...altered art...scrapbook layout etc...the only RULE being that you use at least

All you need to do to enter is leave your name and a link to your entry with Mr Linky so we can come visit you and if you don't have a blog...just e-mail your entry to me (kath) and I will be only too happy to pop it on the blog for you and you will qualify for the prize draw.

And before I forget.....the prize this week for one lucky winner
is from our brand new sponsors
the lovely Alison & Jayne from

Penny Black..."Baby Hammock"

We are so happy and very honoured to have Butterfly Kisses on board as regular sponsors....I'm sure you are all familiar with Butterfly Kisses if you attend any of the big craft shows around the country....but they now have a website selling our beloved Penny Blacks and other stamp sets....the website is still a work in progress but there will be more and more stamps added as time goes on and if there is any particular stamp that you want....Alison and Jayne will be able to get it for you.

And last but not least.....once again the fabulous Penny Black Saturday girls have come up with some gorgeous inspiration for you all

We hope the weather is nice where you are and will put you in a travel/holiday frame of mind.
Look forward to seeing what you all create this week
Hugs from the Design Team
