Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 151

Good morning! Welcome to the weekend and another Penny Black Saturday Challenge!
Well, I hope you're all actually reading this after the problems Blogger has been having the past couple of days! Nightmare! I think all the Gremlins have gone now but think of all the Techno Geeks who must have been working through the night to solve it! All's well that ends well!
Anyway, firstly we'd like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who took part in our Distressing challenge, I hope you all enjoyed yourselves - that's the main thing!
We have 2 winners picked at random, I did the draw at midnight last night when Mr Linky closed so hopefully no entries were missed off.

Firstly the winner of the stamp from Penny Black -

Jennifer (by email)

and then the gorgeous ribbon bundle from the The Ribbon Girl -

Well done, stunning cards ladies!! Drop Kath a little email and she'll arrange for your prizes to be sent to you!

Now for this weeks challenge, a very popular theme in blog land at the moment with even a few new challenge blogs dedicated to this theme:-

Clean & Simple

That's right, we'd like to see your Penny Blacks do the talking with minimal patterns, embellishments, layers etc, the only RULE being that you use at least ONE PENNY BLACK IMAGE, SENTIMENT or STICKEROO, there have been quite a few folks recently who obviously choose to ignore this, so if your entry does not include a Penny Black Image, it will be removed from the entries, sorry peeps, thems the rules! :-)
All you need to do to enter is leave your name and a direct link to your entry with Mr Linky so that we can come visit you and if you don't have a blog, just e-mail your entry to me or Kath and we will pop it on the blog for you and yes you will qualify for the prize draw.

This weeks prize is from another of our fab sponsors 1-2-3 Stitch
there is a $20 voucher to spend at their store for one lucky winner!

Thanks for your big welcome to our new Design Team members last week!
Here they are with the rest of us to inspire you!


Happy Crafting everyone and have a lovely weekend!
