OMG I've been chosen!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I was really thrilled when Dick from PB Stamps (formerly HM Stamps) agreed to become a new sponsor for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. If you're not familiar with it the site has all catalogues for PB stamps going back to 1997 .. and has recently added catalogues going back even further + the exclusive ability to source retired stamps direct from Penny Black.

What I didn't know until last night was that Dick has had a look at our blogs, and he asked if he could feature one of my cards made with a vintage stamp as his "card of the month" for May. Wow! how chuffed am I?? I'm absolutely over the moon and haven't come back down to earth yet!

If you click on the logo below you will see the home page of PB Stamps, with links to every PB stamp catalogue and ordering info your heart could ever desire ...... plus my card :-)

And here is the card, which I first published a couple of weeks ago. The stamp is Penny Black "Rain or Shine Friends" #312K.


  1. WOW! Congratulations and what a lovely feeling it is to be recognised, I too love that vintage card and will be over to the site to have a good look. Enjoy your happy day.

  2. Congratulations Pauline! It's well deserved...that card is gorgeous!
    Will pop over to their site to have a peek at your card when it's on there!
