a valentine. . . .

my first one for 2015:


I wanted to play in the Less is More color challenge, which is to use black, metallic  + one.  Since my new Big Shot had not arrived as yet, I did have some precut hearts in my little bin of die cuts.  I love the red and silver together!  And, I am crazy about Winnie & Walter's sentiments, aren't you?

Also sending this over to Virginia's View for her "clean slate" challenge.


My new Big Shot did arrive yesterday and I am thrilled to have it!  But, I won't have much time for the next few days, so playing with it will have to wait.

Our weather is very cold and snowy right now - hope you are warm and cozy wherever you may be!

Fabulous mix red and silver, Joy! Such a coincidence that my first card of the year was also a valentine card! Be careful with the weather!
