Hi everyone and welcome to Penny Black Saturday
fabulous response to Pauline's sketch last week...you obviously all loved it as much as we did and what a creative bunch of Penny Black lovers you are.
The winner of last week's challenge chosen at random is....
Congratulations. Annemarie...if you e-mail me (kath) I will pass your details over to Dick at PB Stamps and he will arrange for you to claim your prize
And before we move onto this week's challenge...we have some very special news....
we are so honoured to have a very special lady joining us for the month of February as Guest Designer
she is a mega talented cardmaker....one of the nicest girls in the blogland and I think I am right in saying that Helen has joined in every single Penny Black Saturday challenge since we began away back in June 2008.
Well we think that deserves a gold medal....a huge pat on the back....a resounding round of applause and a great big hug from us all.....so pop over to Helen's blog and give her a huge Penny Black Saturday welcome.
No prizes for guessing this week's challenge....it just had to be something related to
Valentine's day....so a great chance to get ahead of the game and get that all important card made
and we would like to see you complete the phrase either on the front or inside of your card
as always it is entirely up to you what you create....a card...layout or giftbox...the only RULE being that you include 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 to your entry with Mr Linky so that we can come and visit you. There are some folks who are not linking directly o their entry and it does make it more difficult for the girls on the team to find your work....so if you have a problem with linking you can find instructions on the sidebar to help you.
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 entered for the prize draw.
So time to announce the prizes for this week...the winners will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday.....
