Happy birthday Penny Black Saturday Challenge!!!!

Good morning and woohoo ..... it is our birthday today on PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE!!!! Wow, we are 1 today and just wait to see how we are going to celebrate! I would just like to say a huge thankyou to all of you who have joined in our challenges this year - we would not have a wonderful blog with you all, so thanks from the bottom of my heart. I would also like to say thanks to my wonderful DT buddies, they are such a special bunch of people and I am so honoured to be working with them each week. I would especially like to thank Kath and Tracie for all the hard work they put in every week keeping things running smoothly!

So onto this weeks challenge ...... we would love to see you use the theme of celebrations - this could be for anything at all as long as you use a PB product. Up for grabs are 10 prizes ....yes that's right .... 10. Thankyou so much to our wonderful sponsors - you are all brilliant!! For details of the prizes pop over to the blog for a peep.

You would think that 10 prizes would be enough but you would be wrong. Each DT member is also offering a surprise birthday candy. To be in with a chance of winning one just take part in this weeks challenge but leave a comment on the DT's PB post on their individual blog. You can enter as many different DT candies as you want but please only enter each candy once. The DT candies closes at 8am on Friday and the winners will all be announced on next Saturday on the PBSC blog. Each DT member will pick a winner for their candy and the winners for the sponsored prizes will be selected in the usual way. Remember - you have to take part in the challenge to enter the surprise candies. So, if you want to win my candy just comment on this post with a link to your card for this weeks challenge :o)

Phew, I think that is it! I hope to see lots of you joining in on our special week. There is so much fun to join in with and lots of lovely things to win so come on - what's stopping you! Have a great weekend and see you all soon!
