Penny Black Saturday #172 - Age ... is just a number

Woo hoo .. it's Saturday and so it's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks very much for all last week's fabby entries - don't forget to check out the main challenge blog to see if you are a winner.

This week we are celebrating, as Thursday was our lovely teamie Nat's 21st birthday ... happy birthday hun!!

So in honour of this momentous occasion this week's challenge theme is

Age ... is just a number

Yes we would like to see any birthday cards with a number on them. It doesn't have to be 21, though many of us in the team took the opportunity to make Nat a card :-)

This week we have another fab prize from one of our regular sponsors - 1-2-3 Stitch has donated a $20 gift voucher for their online store.

Don't forget, to be eligible for the prize you need to submit a new piece of work which features a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo as its main focus.

All my fellow teamies have really done themselves proud this week - here is my 21st birthday card which I made for Nat.... I masked the PB stamp as she was originally holding a handbag, so that she could hold the "key of the door" instead!

Stamps: Penny Black "light the night" (3687K); LotV calendar circle;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; deocration with glamour dust;
Papers: Bo Bunny;
Supplies: flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts and Sweet Lilac; pearls from The Hobby House; lace from Wild Orchid Crafts; heart gems by Papermania; ribbon and charm from my stash.
