Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 208

HI Everyone and welcome to Penny Black Saturday...
this is going to be a bit of a long post so I'll cut to the chase and get on with it...

First of all...thanks to all the lovely folks who joined in last week's challenge flying your flags and waving your bunting and the lucky winner of the Penny Black stamps is....

Congratulations Fabiola....if you e-mail me (kath) with your address I'll get your goodies off in the mail...
we know that our Winner's Blinkie has lost his blink but if you bear with us folks...we'll have a brand new one up next week which... if you are a past winner...you're welcome to grab for your blog...
and before we move on to this week's challenge we have some exciting news to share with you all...

we are absolutely delighted to welcome on board....the lovely Denise and Jenny from
as sponsors....and here's a little bio from J&C Creations in their own words...
J & C Creations was founded in 2004 by mother and daughter Denise and Jenny Packham making handmade greetings cards to raise funds for an expedition trip Jenny was embarking on to Mongolia. From there we began exhibiting at local school fĂȘtes and garden shows where our range of products grew to include gifts. As we started attending more shows we increased our product range to include card making supplies, J & C Creations was born.
Summer 2011 saw some major changes, as J & C Creations relocated to new business premises, where we open on the first Tuesday of every month and by appointment when we are not away at shows to anyone who would like to come and visit us. Please contact us by phone or e-mail to arrange an appointment.
Nowadays J & C Creations can be found exhibiting at the craft shows up and down the country, where we take great pride in selling and demonstrating some of the craft industries top brands. These Include Penny Black, Spellbinders, Heartfelt Creations, Hobby Art, Tim Holtz and Ranger. 2012 has been a busy year for us as we have launched two brand new blogs, an ideas and inspirations blog alongside a monthly challenge blog. We are currently working hard on our website, where over the next few months we will be introducing a whole host of new collections as well as launching our brand new website J & C Beads with everything you need to create stunning beaded and jewellery designs.
But there's more exciting news...the Penny Black Saturday team are absolutely over the moon to welcome back into our happy little family...one of the original design team...someone that you all know and love as much as we do...that lovely and very talented lady...the Cat's Whiskers indeed
OK time for this week's challenge...
HOT METAL
yes we want to see some metal on your cards...we leave it entirely up to you and as always the usual rules apply...only Penny Black images please...all you have to do to enter is leave your name with Inlinkz and if you don't have a blog I have deactivated the mandatory URL function...so hopefully it will work if you enter your e-mail address...fingers crossed that Mrs Technophobe has got it right...
