Hi Everyone and welcome to Penny Black Saturday

Congratulations everyone....if you e-mail me (kath) with your addresses we will arrange to get your prizes on their way to you and we hope you enjoy

Before we move onto this week's challenge....we have some very sad news to share with you all....our lovely teamie Carole has decided to step down from the design team to spend more time with her new hobby of photography.   I'm sure you will join with the team in saying a big thank you for her contribution to Penny Black Saturday and the wonderful inspiration she has shared with us all and wish her all the best with her new hobby.   It goes without saying that she will be welcome to return to the team at any time should the cardmaking bug take over her life again.

Time for this week's challenge....a fabulous idea from our lovely teamie BETH


These are the items on the buffet table and all you have to do is select 4 to use on this week's card or creation and remember the all important RULE....that you use at least ONE PENNY BLACK IMAGE....LARGE SENTIMENT OR STICKEROO
and all you have to do to enter is leave your name and a direct link only please to your project with Mr Linky so we can come visit you and 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 onto the prize this week for one lucky winner who will be selected at random and announced next Saturday from

40-024 Rain or Shine
40-011 Paisley Swirls

and if you are looking for some inspiration you can pop over to the Penny Black Circle a great place to meet up and chat with others who share the same Penny Black addiction....upload your cards and share in wonderful inspiration and you can also visit The Penny Black Blog and check out what their mega talented design team have been up to and you will be the first to know about new releases challenges and competitions.

And of course it's now time for all the lovely girls on the Design Team to share their inspiration with you all and this is what they chose from the buffet table.....

I hope I'm not too late for this challenge. I just love the idea of a card buffet and really had a great time playing along as I made a special 2nd birthday card with this challenge. I hope you'll take a peek.
