I Found The One.....

Hello and welcome!

Hope you are staying warm wherever you are! We've had a frigid week here which included high winds too and prompted some school cancelations, but it's typical for our area here in the Midwest to get this type of weather during January and February, and that always makes me look forward to spring even more!! Still at least 2 months to go though....but we all know how time flies!

Speaking of time, it's time for a new theme at Allsorts challenge and as promised the winner of my Year in Review post is also revealed today towards the of the post. At Allsorts Pauline is hosting this week and she picked the theme of "Use Something New" but with an "Anything Goes" option too, so feel free to link up all your new crafty makes for a chance to win. This week our prize comes from Helping Hands Craft who kindly donated a £15 store voucher.

Before I get to the card, I do want to mention that we are having a Design Team call at Allsorts. So if you like to join our wonderful little team, do read the details on the challenge blog's side bar!

And here is what I made:

More new goodies I've recently purchased, these are all by Penny Black and I couldn't resist. The image is from the set Love and Happiness, the sentiment from the set Dream Love Sentiments and finally the die named Berries

Both the image set and sentiment set are marked down and part of the Clearance Sale at and still available as I type this.

You can check out more of their sale here or click on the logo below. 

I colored with Zig Clean Color markers and a Zig Detailer watercolor brush, then fussy cut with my Cutterbee scissors. 

The dotted papers are from my stash, very old from Stampin Up. I used two of the die cuts here, I cut them apart  before adding to the card to make them more versatile.

The sentiment from the set Dream Love Sentiments has been stamped using Versafine Onyx ink. I used my old Stampin Up paper piercing tool for some more interest. 

Penny Black Love and Happiness //  Penny Black Dream Love Sentiments // Penny Black Berries die // Zig Clean Color markers // Zig Detailer brush // Cutterbee scissors

An adorable card Ellie answer suitable for so many occasions where a touch of romance is needed.

I am totally with you on the weather and like you don't like winter, we've had a few frosts but in the main rain, rain and more rain.
