Hello my friends,
today I am showing you the card made for the SOTC January's challenge.
Judy (known in the stamping SCS' world as JAM123) was our hostess with the mostest
and encouraged us to create the following....In her own words:
" ....It’s the ending of an old year and the beginning of a new year. It’s a time of reflection, a time of celebration and a time when many look forward to new beginnings. So in the spirit of the season, the theme for December/January cards is INSPIRATION!
Create a card that reflects YOU…your dreams, aspirations, and/or accomplishments. Include your favorite colors, embellishments, images and sentiments. Create something that will lift the spirit of your Sistahs! As an added challenge I would love to see you incorporate a picture of yourself......"
There are so many possibilities and interpretations for this latest challenge...and, as such, I found myself to be at a standstill as what to create.However, I remember thinking that, IF I had a hot air balloon stamp, I would have used it for sure...
you see one of my many dreams has always been to try and go up in the sky
in a hot air balloon....♥
On the inside, I kept it simple
by using a pretty glittered
designer paper panel and
punched out a string of heart with
my MS punch ,added another punched
out heart and a scalloped nestie heart
to use for a sentiment of choice...

This card is ment to be a reflections of some of the things that are important to me, in my life...Love for family, love for music, love for glitter and blings -some of my favorite embellishments- (btw oh yes I also like REAL glittery BLINGS too!), love for lacey things that remind me of a long ago era....You can say that I also love shabby schick...it's totally me...sometimes casual, sometimes elegant....but overall....under all those layers...there is 'just' ME!
