Penny Black Saturday #76!

Woo hoo! It's a very special week this week on the Penny Black Saturday challenge blog! We're having a 'Winter Wonderland Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop'!! There are loads of gorgeous prizes to be won, all you have to do is make a card with a Winter Wonderland theme and play along with this puzzle -

Can you guess this well known Christmas Song
---O--- T-- --- N---- -----E--
a little clue - one of Santa's helpers

it has five words and we have given you another little clue by filling in some of the letters but to collect the rest of the letters you need to visit each member of the Design Team including our lovely Guest Designer for this month Debby, shuffle the letters around to solve the puzzle and then e-mail your answer to Kath -
Entries will close at midnight GMT on Friday 27th November

And these are the letters you'll be needing from me.....R & N - Good luck!


and all the lucky winners will be announced on Penny Black Saturday next Saturday

Our sponsors have been amazingly generous, this little lot is up for grabs - 2 CD's from Funky Hand - 4 lifetime 15% off discount vouchers from PB Stamps - a Penny Black stamp from 1-2-3 Stitch - digi download from Pollycraft - 10% voucher from Valentines - $25 voucher from Simon Says Stamps - 10 rolls of ribbon from FR Ribbons - bumper pack of stuff from Simply Create!!

And not only that, each of the DT have put together a little Christmas Blog Candy on their blogs! To win mine, just leave a comment on this post with a link to your card for this week and I'll announce the winner in next saturdays post! If that's not enough to get you into the Christmas spirit, I don't know what is!! Here's my candy prize! There's 3 sets of Christmas papers, buttons, gems, brads, snowflakes, poinsettias, ribbons, some stamped images (not pictured) and a little bag of festive choccies! -

And here's my card for this week, I've had a go at one of the easel cards that everyone seems to be making at the moment, I love them! I've used one of the latest Summer Driggs downloads - appropriately called Winter Wonderland! I hope you like it and can join in with the fun this week! Remember to visit all the other DT girls for your clues! Have a great weekend!
