Penny Black Saturday Challenge - January

Happy New Year and welcome to a brand new Penny Black Saturday Challenge!

Thank you to those of you who joined in with our 'Snowflakes' challenge last month!

Now it's time to announce the lucky winners (chosen at random) of the prizes from our generous sponsor:

$20 Gift Voucher from 1-2-3 Stitch

#5 - Annie's Place

Congratulations Annie! Please email me (Helen) to claim your prizes...and don't forget to grab the winner's blinkie from the sidebar.

So, onto this month's challenge...

The theme of our challenge this month is:

'New'
(New Year, New Baby, New Home, New Job, New Stash, New Technique...)

Unfortunately, we've had rather a lot of ineligible entries into our recent challenges...it's wonderful that so many of you want to play along with our challenges, but it's not fair to the folks that follow the rules, for somebody who hasn't, to win the prize on offer. We do state the rules on each and every challenge post...and it couldn't be simpler, really...so please take the time to read the rules before you link-up to make sure that your project qualifies.

As always the usual RULES apply, please make sure that the MAIN FOCUS OF YOUR PROJECT is one of the following: PENNY BLACK IMAGE, PENNY BLACK LARGE SENTIMENT, PENNY BLACK  DIE OR PENNY BLACK STICKEROO. 
New work only please and link back to the challenge on your blog post
and all you need to do to enter is leave your name with a direct link to your entry (not just your blog, as this makes it easier for the DT to find your entry & comment) with Inlinkz so we can come and visit you. If you don't have a blog, you can still play along, simply e-mail your entry to me (address in the sidebar) and I'll link it up for you so that you will be entered in the prize draw.

The challenge will close at 8pm (GMT) on Friday 6th February.

The prize for this challenge is provided by our generous sponsor:


Prize - $20 voucher!
