PBSC January - Anything Goes!

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

Thank you to all of you who joined in with our 'Winter/Christmas' challenge last month...we had so many lovely entries...we hope that you'll play along with us again this month!

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

$20 Gift Voucher from 1-2-3 Stitch

#66 - Lynda Pleckan

Congratulations Lynda! Please email me (Helen) to claim your prize...and don't forget to grab the winner's badge from the sidebar.

Ok, so on to our new challenge, this month the theme is:

'Anything Goes!'

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 Penny Black Saturday Challenge in your blog post. You may enter our challenge as many times as you like, and there is no limit on how many challenges you may combine with ours.
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'd like to be considered for a Guest Designer spot on a future challenge, please add 'GDT' after your name on the link-up.
You can still play along if you don't have a blog, 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.
Entries not following these rules will not be eligible for the prize draw.

The challenge will close at 8pm (GMT) on Friday 3rd February.

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

Prize - $20 voucher!
