Hi friends.  Hope you're keeping warm if you are in the midst of winter where you are.  We are cold again, wind chill 10 below today.  Good day to stay in and create.

I made this card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.  This month's theme is "New". I recently purchased a new Penny Black Sentiment clear stamp set called From the Heart, and I have used a sentiment
from this set on my card.  Also, Penny Black and More January Challenge, Love is in the Air.

 I paired it with this vintage (1998) stamp from Penny Black that I just love.

And this is my finished card.

I punched small red hearts and stamped a small bee stamp to create a background on the
yellow textured card stock.
Banner created with bright red textured cardstock.
Colored with Copics.

I have a bunch of little ones in my family that I send Valentines to, and I know just who
is getting this one!

Long time since I played at Penny Black, used to play every week before they went to 
once a month, my poor PB stamps are feeling neglected.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later....

How cute, Sue. It does remind me of the cards we used to exchange in grammar school. Just adorable. Love the layered banners and such a cute sentiment. Very cold here also and should stay that way for the next few days. Maybe more snow on Saturday. Stay warm.

That is such a great old stamp, Sue. I have been digging in the closet, and trying to find some oldies but goodies, myself. Love all the little details.

Colors in this are awesome. I love the combination of flags and the digi. Going to be a favorite for the recipient too. I like the country feel to it.
