Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 119

Hi Everyone and welcome to Penny Black Saturday....big thank you to everyone who joined in last week's challenge and it was nice to see some new faces.....we really do appreciate you all joining in the fun.

The winner of last week's challenge chosen at random is.....
PAULA....Linky No 3

Congratulations Paula if you e-mail me (kath) I will pass your details onto
1-2-3 Stitch who will be in touch about spending your $20 voucher

The challenge this week is a fab sketch from our lovely teamie JOEY

and we have some fabulous news to share with you all.....we are so excited that the lovely and very talented Kathy Racoosin....from the Penny Black Design Team has joined us this week as Guest Designer
"I am so excited to be featured as guest designer here at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge and I admire the creativity of the DT and the participants.   I think this is one of the best stops on the web because you all love Penny Blacks as I do.    I find that there is a PB image to fit all of my moods whether it's cutesy elegant or dramatic.   Creating is something I have always needed in my life but never could find the right medium for me until I found the love of rubber a few years ago.   When designing a card I try to use a stamp in different ways to provoke thoughts and interests.   Detailed cutting layering and the addition of white dots are necessities to me. I am a mother of two teenagers and my husband I just celebrated 20 years together.  I am grateful for this opportunity to share my cards with you.....Thank You."

To see lots of  gorgeous cards using our favourite stamps you must pay a visit to Kathy's Blog where I guarantee you won't be disappointed...it's full to the brim with fabulous inspiration and Kathy also has a give-away to celebrate more fabulous Penny Black news which I will tell you about in a minute.

As always it is entirely up to you what you create from Joey's sketch...the only RULE being that you use at least ONE PENNY BLACK IMAGE....LARGE SENTIMENT OR STICKEROO.

All you need to do to enter is leave your name and a direct link to your entry...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 pop it on the blog for you and you will be eligible for the prize draw
Although our challenge blog is based in the UK....we welcome entries from across the world but please remember that the challenge will close on Friday 24 September at midnight GMT.

And we have special prizes this week for 2 lucky winners who will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday

The Design Team were absolutely delighted when Kathy kindly agreed to join in the fun this week..but then panic stations kicked in and our knees started knocking at the thought of being in such talented company....but I'm sure you will agree they have overcome their nerves and as always have worked their special magic...





We can't wait to see what you all make this week with Joey's fab sketch
Happy Crafting
Hugs from the Design Team
