Penny Black Challenge #33 - Frame It!

Well this week has absolutely whizzed by ... unfortunately no time for crafting since last weekend what with one thing and another. One exception ... of course I couldn't miss making my DT card for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

Thanks once more to everyone who "got dotty" last week - we are all overwhelmed and thrilled by the huge response we are now getting, and love seeing the huge variety of inspirational cards.
This week our theme is Frame It - as usual you can interpret this any which way so long as you include at least one Penny Black stamp or stickeroo in your design. As usual the DT has been busy, so hope you will pop over to their blogs to take a look at their gorgeous efforts.

And we have a fabulous prize for you this week, sponsored by Tab from 7KidsCollegeFunds. For one lucky winner chosen at random a $15 gift certificate to be spent at the online shop, and for each entrant to this week's challenge a 10% discount....use Code PB 10 at checkout. This offer runs from 24th - 31st January.

Here is my card for this week - apologies for the poor picture quality but the light was really bad. Also we have recently bought a new scanner, and I'm hoping to get a grip of that before long so I can get better resolution on the pics. But in the meantime:
