A belated Happy New Year!

I know I am a few days late but... HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! I hope everyone had a joyous holiday season and enjoyed spending time with those they love and celebrating the most wonderful time of the year.
I'm so delighted to be back in Virginia and warm inside my home. The wind has been brutal! I am concerned about those that are homeless or unable to afford heating during these super frigid days. I try to give a little extra money to my gas company each month whom distrubutes the funds to those that need the financial assistance. I know it's not a lot but a few dollars may be all someone needs.
After a week off, I was eager to create something. I was actually walking around Vegas composing ideas in my head. Pretty sad huh? I am not a gambler so the visual stimulation of themed hotels was enough for me. I think we visited all the larger hotels which was fun because the motifs varied. Lots of color inspiration!
I made this card using The Pink Elephant's #47 sketch and the latest Embellish Magazine color challenge to use red, pink, and black with heart embellishments which is being sponsored by The Cutting Cafe.


Supplies: cardstock: Creatively-Green; pattern paper: Fancy Pants Splendid; chipboard heart: American Crafts; rub-on's: Making Memories; rhinestones: Darice; rick rack: Wright's; button, heart brad, and pink ribbon from craft supply, floss: DMC; ink: Brilliance

Thanks so much for stopping by!
