Morning folks....yes it's the weekend and time to join in the fun again over at Penny Black Saturday.  I loved all your cute "Down On The Farm" creations for last week's challenge....the 2 winners have been posted so pop on over to see if you've been lucky.
The Penny Black Saturday team have been in celebration mode this week....our lovely teamie NAT had a rather special birthday on Thursday...yes she's reached the grand old age of 21...oh to be 21 again in keeping with the birthday theme the challenge this week is....
all we want you to do is feature a number on your project and it doesn't have to be for a special birthday
I decided to make a canvas for Nat...well it's not everyday a girl is 21...

Canvas 20cm x 20cm
Papers: MME Lost and Found 12"x12" Designer Pad
Image: Penny Black...Ode To Joy
 Woodware Chipboard Numbers
Key: TH Alterations...Hardware Findings
Seam Binding....The Ribbon Girl
Charms from stash
Flowers...Wild Orchid Crafts
finished off with a liberal dusting of Glamour Dust

the prize this week is from our lovely friends at
$20 voucher to spend at their fabulous online store where you will find loads of Penny Blacks to choose from and a huge selection of crafty bits and pieces for your cardmaking.

Look forward to seeing what you all create this week...enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.  I will be setting off shortly to join in the fun at the Grand Opening of THE SEW ROOM...44 Main Street Alford and if you live in my neck of the woods it would be great to see you there.
Catch up with you all tomorrow
