Penny Black and More Challenge - My Design Team Favorites Over 10 Years

Happy Sunday! 

The first Sunday of each month is when I normally post my Penny Black and More design team creation. Well, I am here to tell you, last month was my last month on the PB and More design team after just about 10 years.

While the challenge blog is still there for everyone to join in, it is now under new sponsorship and a new name, and the rest of the team will continue to inspire your creativity. As I don't own a single stamp from the new sponsor at this time, I thought it was best for now to step down.

I thought it would be fun to have a look back at my Penny Black and More Design Team creations and I am sharing my favorites in today's post. I tried to pick one favorite for each year I was on the team, but there are a few years where I couldn't decide and am sharing 2. I tried to link to the stamps used, but many of my favorite Penny Black and older and may only be available on the secondary market like ebay or etsy.

Seem to have sussed what's going on Ellie, couldn't understand why my comments on your blog hadn't shown up, only by visiting more blogs and getting the same have I realised the robot is back in action on most blogs. Is it Bloggers subtle way of getting us to use the new system?

Anyhow, what my other comment said was that I think this is a great idea and I'm sure when you look back at older work you see how much your style has changed, I know I always surprise myself when I do the same.

It's always been a pleasure having you on the team and I appreciate all the time and effort you have devoted to it over the years.

Wonderful trip down memory lane, I to was on the team for a short while but realised that it was not for me! I'm not that good at working to other people's themes and ideas. Enjoy what ever comes next because something will x
