Before we get to our latest challenge, we wanted to let you know about a few changes going on here at Penny's.

Sadly, Julie has decided to step down from her role, running this fantastic challenge.  She has had a heap of life struggles on her shoulders and has found it increasingly hard to keep the challenge running smoothly.  I know I speak for the entire team when I wish her well, and thank her for all the hard work she's put in, running this challenge, and supporting our team of talented crafters.  She has been a pleasure to work with, always supportive and encouraging, and she is going to be hugely missed!

The challenge has now been handed over to me, Linda, and I can only hope to do as well running it, as Julie has for so many years.

I'd like to thank all you fantastic paper crafters for supporting our challenge, and I hope you'll continue to share your passion with us, with the added bonus of super prizes along the way.

Onto some exciting news:  

We've been running a DT call, and had a wonderful response!

We're happy to welcome 5 new DT members to the team, with a 6th joining us soon.  They'll be sharing their work, starting with Challenge #471.

Please welcome

We're so happy you've all decided to join us!  You're all super creative, and we're looking forward to seeing your stunning creations!

We also have a Guest Designer joining us for a few challenges:

Please welcome Patsy

I am on a few Design Teams with Patsy, and I'm thrilled that she's decided to share her creative talent with us at Penny's for a few weeks!

That's all for now.

Be sure to check back later for our new challenge.
