The Dt would like to thank you all for making our challenge blog a success and for joining in our challenges over the past year, we would be here if it wasnt for all our Penny Black Friends
So by way of thanking you all the Design Team have put together there own 'Surprise Birthday Candy' and we invite you all to participate. All you have to do is go to each DT's blog and to enter their candy please leave a message on their PB post (with a link to your work for this weeks challenge)

PLEASE NOTE: You can only enter each DT candy ONCE and you must play along with this weeks challenge. DT's CANDY CLOSES ON FRIDAY MORNING AT 8AM ~ WHERE EACH DT WILL PICK THEIR WINNER
