Happy NEW Home!

Hello again! Hope you had fun ringing in the new year! If you missed the fun here on the blog, you still have time to enter my giveaway for the Seasons Giving Blog Hop!

Today I'm playing along with THREE challenges--two I've played along with before & one new (to me)--but all with the same theme: 365 Cards "New Beginnings," A Blog Named Hero's "New Year, New You" & CASology's "New" challenge.

I used my new Hero Arts stamp "Newspaper House" to create this very CAS card--just stamps & a glittered heart for a pop of color. 

A co-worker of mine experienced a badly damaging house fire just before Christmas, so she & her family are in the process of rebuilding & redecorating their place. I plan on giving this to her once the "new" house is complete.









Before I go, I just have to show you a close-up of the sweet little heart--check out that sparkle!

Hope you like it!

Stamps: Newspaper House (Hero Arts), Scattered Showers (PTI)
Paper: PTI Kraft
Ink: Close to Cocoa (SU)
Accessories: American Crafts glittered ribbon, SU heart punch
