Penny Black Saturday #180 - Total White Out

Hello everyone, and welcome to another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. It was fabulous to see all your Christmas-themed makes over the past four weeks - we hope it has helped you get on top of the Chrimbo rush lol!

Now we are into December .. the big day is a mere 22 days away - eek!! So although our month of Chrimbo challenges is officially over, you may just want to make a last minute Christmas card with this week's theme (though it's not complusory :-) ) ... which is

Total White out

Yes we would like to see everything white on your card apart from your coloured image ... which of course must be a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo if you would like to be considered for this week's prize.

And talking of prizes ... this week we  have two fabulous prizes for randomly drawn winners.

this gorgeous stamp ..

and from The Ribbon Girl

this beautiful assortment of lace
