Penny Black @ Allsorts January DT card

Happy New Year! Welcome to the January Challenge !

We have so much news to share this month I am not sure where to start, but prizes seems like a good place as there are a few more than usual. As well as our regular four stamps, we have a new sponsor offering a fabulous prize every month, plus a special one off prize for a winner selected from all the new followers who link up this month....................and on 15th January we are hosting a Blog Hop, lots of fun and excitement and more fabulous prizes to be won. So keep an eye on your dashboard so you don't miss a thing......and please lift our special logo to help spread the word.


For this months challenge we have four prizes from the wonderful Penny Black and an extra prize as well which I will tell you about shortly, plus we are thrilled to have a new sponsor PB Stamps


..........who are offering a lifetime 15% discount for products purchased from their store, it you have never visited them you don't know what you are missing.................new stamps, old stamps and even discontinued stamps..............

Now for an extra special bit, we will select a further winner from those who link up as a follower this month. So many people keep telling us they are so surprised but excited to find us, so if you link up to follow us you will be the first to know about all that's going on.
Lyhyesti suomeksi: Hyvää Uutta Vuotta! Tervetuloa Penny Black @ Allsorts tammikuun haasteeseen, nyt tapahtuukin paljon, aloitetaan palkinnoista, joita on...paljon ja alkuperäisiä Penny Black'ejä. Neljän leimasimen arvonnan lisäksi, uusi sponsorimme PB Stamps antaa "ikuisen" 15 % alennuksen kaupastaan, josta löytyy vaikka mitä PB - ihanuuksia. Ja tammikuun 15 pv. arvotaan lisää palkintoja Blog Hop'ssa, kiitos jos levitätte sanaa esim. sivupalkissanne jo etukäteen.
Lisäksi kannattaa nyt viimeistään tulla lukijaksi niin tänne minullekin kuin PB@A haasteblogiin, sillä yllätysvoittoja on tulossa, omasta puolestani voin luvata niitä satunnaisesti pitkin vuotta! 
Tämän kuukauden aihe on "All you need is Love", mikä on tulkintasi tästä Beatlesin 60-luvun hitistä Penny Black leimasimella  tai tarroilla toteutettuna! Tule mukaan, tee vaikka ystävänpäiväkortti! 
Oman DT- korttini tein Spotlight- tekniikalla ja kahdella PB-leimasimella.
January Challenge is "All you need is Love" inspired with the Beatles hit from 60's. I have the original book from 1969 with all the lyrics and fabulous retro coloured pictures. So my DT card is also quite psychedelic, downpaper is black/white ( 7gypsies) just add little Distress Inks to the corners. I used two Penny Black images: "cupid at work 4033K" and " diamonds are forever 1454K" and Spotlight-technigue. I stamped with black versafine twice then embossed clear, the heart pieces are rised and coloured with ProMarkers, add few more small hearts. The note heart is Spellbinders die and Hero Art stamp, embossed and coloured with Distresses.
The text is a freebie from Sentimental Sundays, ribbon and lots of gems.

Hyvää alkanutta vuotta sinulle myös, perheellesi kanssa:)
Minä aloitin jo arkiset aherrukset...joulukoristeet vek ja sitten pyöräytin kakun ja sämpylöitä...huomenna meinaan ajella Hollolaan eiköhän sieltä suita lyödy.Tosin mummon eka silmäterä jo tänään pyörähti isänsä kanssa mutta silloin ei vielä leipomisista ollut tietoakaan, tosin pääsin kahdesta tuolista eroon:)
