Happy New Year

This has been one heck of a ride this year.  I'm looking forward to better things in 2016!  How was your year?

I actually get to start my year off with Jury Duty, apparently it has gone from a week to just over a month long service.  I have been given the term from Jan 11 to Feb 19th.  Not exactly how I wanted to start my year off.  LOL

Tonight, New Years Eve, I'm going to a party with my boyfriend.  It is his friends, I know the couple throwing the party, however, just in passing.  I don't think I know any of the other guests.  I told him last night "Yay!  I get to make new friends!"  I meant it sincerely!  Now, THAT is a good way to start the new year!

I decided I would make a card for the host and hostess of tonight's shindig.  I used a new die set I got for Christmas (from myself) "Home and Hearth" by Stampin' Up!.  The silhouette image is from Create With TLC's set called From All Of Us.  I added the image over a fireworks image.  I then added a black bow.  Clean and simple, but fun!

I would like to wish you a very happy and productive 2016!  May this be a better year for us all!

Thanks for looking!
