Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 126

Hi everyone and welcome to Penny Black Saturday
thank you to all those who joined in the Zig Zag Triangle challenge last week....lots of fabulous takes on the challenge....we really do appreciate you joining in the fun and it was nice to see some new faces.

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

Congratulations Jules if you e-mail me (kath) I will pass your details  on to Dick at PB Stamps who will be in touch about using your 15% off lifetime discount voucher and have lots of fun browsing through their fabulous online store.

The challenge for this week is.....

oops I hope we aren't tempting fate with this one...we do want to see lots of snow on your cards but hopefully not falling from the sky anytime soon

and we have an extra special treat for you this week.....we have the lovely and very very talented Promarker Queen...Debbi joining us for the month of November as Guest Designer and each week Debbi will have a tutorial for us all on colouring our Penny Black images with Promarkers....starting off with the super cute hedgies

Hi I’m Debbi although I’m better known as Wiccababe….I live on the NE coast of Scotland with my partner, 3 kids: ,Scott (11), Willow (6) and Faith (4),  2 cats and cavalier puppy.
I started papercrafting after my youngest daughter was born because I wanted to make unique baby books for my kids – needless to say this is still a work in progress because I discovered rubber-stamping and promarkers in 2009. I am now one of Letraset’s new Product Coaches which means I get to use, teach  and show others how to make the most of their Letraset products – my dream job....to do what I love and love what I do.


To see Debbi's fabulous tutorial.....click HERE

As always it is up to you what you create....a card...altered art...scrapbook layout....box...we leave it up entirely to your imagination....the only RULE being that you use at least ONE PENNY BLACK IMAGE...LARGE SENTIMENT OR STICKEROO and all you need to do to enter is leave your name and a direct link to your entry with Mr Linky so that we come visit you.    If you don't have a blog....e-mail your entry to me (kath) and I will pop it on the blog for you and you will be entered in the prize draw

Talking of prizes we have a super duper prize this week for one lucky winner who will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday

and from the girls on the Design Team
5 Promarkers....the colours that Debbi used in her tutorial

And as always our super talented girls on the Design Team have worked their special snowy magic and produced gorgeous cards for your inspiration...

DEBBI (Guest Designer)

Now it's your turn to get your Penny Blacks inked up...we look forward to seeing all your magical snowy creations this week...happy crafting everyone
