three today

Good morning Penny Black fans.
It's a very special day at the Penny Black Challenge this week.
We are three years old!

So to celebrate we are having a birthday hop with loads of prizes from all our regular sponsors. But first I must tell you that this weeks challenge is....


Pesky Creatures


Cats, mices, hedgies, doggies or in my case a turtle! Take your pick.

So when you have made your card you enter it in the normal way. But then to be in with a chance to win one of the prizes you will need to hop around the DT members blogs and leave a comment on each one. Only the Penny Black boss Kath knows where the prizes are hidden and she is keeping it a very closely guarded secret!

It doesn't matter what order you complete the blog hop. There is a list of all the DT members who are taking part on the Penny Black Challenge blog. Along with details of all the fabby prizes we have.

And guess what? My own little blog is three tomorrow. And one of the first challenges I entered was the Penny Black Challenge! You can see my entry here. It's kinda weird looking back at your older cards!
