Penny Black Saturday # 132 - Recipe!

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Penny Black Saturday Challenge - in fact the last challenge for 2010. Thanks so much to everyone who has stuck with us throughout the year, and to the new faces that have entered for the first time - it has been brilliant seeing everyone's creations for the different themes. As always, if you entered last week don't forget to check whether you are a winner on the main blog.

Before I get onto this week's challenge, massive congratulations for my teamie Nat, who has just been named a runner up in this year's Simply Cards & Papercraft Card Designer of The Year - woo hoo and well done hun!!

Anyhow ... back to the challenge. This week we have a recipe for you .... so you can use it either to cook up a last minute Christmas card or (if you are totally organised by now) to get started on those occasion cards for 2011. We would like to see

3 papers, 1 ribbon and 1 charm

Don't forget the only other rules if you would like to be eligible for our randomly drawn prize, are that you must create a new project, and you must use a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo as the main focus.

This challenge will run for 3 weeks, closing midnight GMT on Friday 7th January ...

We will be back on Saturday 8th January with a brand new year of Penny Black challenges - bring it on!

As always we have got a fantastic prize this week for one randomly drawn winner ... our fab teamie Carole

has donated this darling stamp.

The other members of the DT have been cooking up a storm so please do go and check them out ... here is my effort for this week.

I was waiting for this stamp to arrive from America, so when it did I rather went into overdrive with it! Mostly I used it for some simple last minute cards, but I put a bit more effort into this one!

Main image: Penny Black "Solitaire", coloured with Marvey brushstroke pens;
Sentiment: LotV Christmas circle sentiments;
Papers: BasicGrey (poinsettia and plain green), MME (aqua);
Supplies: pearls from The Hobby House and Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon and charm from stash;
Tools: small circles and lacy circles nestabilities.

Well that's it from me ... it just remains for me to wish all the followers of the Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

... and we look forward to seeing you again on January 8th 2011 :-)
