Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 154

Good morning! Welcome to the weekend and another Penny Black Saturday Challenge!
Thank you so much to everyone who entered last weeks One for the Girlies challenges! Pretty cards all round I'm sure you'll agree!

Before we get onto this weeks theme we have 2 lucky winners from last weeks challenge,
firstly the winner of 4 lovely rolls of ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons is...

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

Now onto this weeks challenge!


We'd like to see you get doodling! This can either be as simple as a faux stitched border or as elaborate as and sketched background for your image and everything in between! It's up to you, just have fun, 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.
Speaking of which, this week we have 2 more yummy prizes!

From our sponsors at Penny Black Inc -
4059K Hang on Edge

Then from The Ribbon Girl -

5 packs of 10 metres of Bakers Twine

plus any 2 packs of 10 metres of Button Twine from the website

And now it's over to our lovely design team to inspire you with their doodles!
