Have a Heart

Good morning!

Bright blue skies and mild temperatures, it really doesn't feel like winter in my neck of the woods. It's crazy to think that its February when I look at my rose bush IN BLOOM! Bush totally lost the plot in my opinion. Anyway, we have a new challenge starting today @ Ooh La La, asking for creations "With a Heart". I'm sharing a Christmas card with you, using heart papers and some cut out heart as embellishments. I used this card as my hubs'  Christmas card, I really like the unusual colour scheme en theme. Hope you like it too and are inspired to join our challenge this fortnight!
