Heart Filled Happy New Years!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!  Mine was sweet...time with my husband and children...precious times and wonderful gifts...but the time was short.  My daughter and son-in-law left the morning after Christmas to return to Nashville.  My body fell apart the day they left...a horrible sinus infection and cold...had me wiped out until yesterday...don't know about you, but I SO appreciate being well after having been sick!!!  I couldn't wait to start having fun with some of my new stamps and dies....here are the first few cards(of a bunch) I made with some of my wonderful Christmas gifts:)!!...
I LOVE hearts...is there anyone who doesn't?!  And I can't get enough heart dies...especially nesting and little heart dies.  It seems that most of the dies I have, though, are stand alones or if they nest, are too big to do much with on a standard card.  Simon Says Stamp has just come out with some really cool sets of dies that are so sweet...perfectly sized...all the way to teeny... are wonderful as stand alones, but NEST TOO!!  I didn't realize it, but the 4 Large Heart Dies, with their different shapes ACTUALLY NEST...found out through experimentation although I'm sure they were designed that way!  Used the Large Holiday Shapes as well for the 3 smaller hearts.   And the sentiments from Simon Says Stamp Talk Bubbles 2 are too cute...you'll see more of them in days to come!
I die cut the hearts and then used the same hearts to emboss the card before popping it up and adding the die cuts.
The second card used the set Large Holiday Shapes.  I die cut, layered and used my SSS Air Vent die to emboss...I love to emboss with dies:)!!  The sentiment is from SSS Just a Love Note.  Dotted with pink rhinestones.

This third one, I decided to die cut enough hearts to go across a card and then stamped on one with a stamp designed for the bigger heart die, but so fit what I wanted.  The heart is also from the 4 Large Hearts and the sentiment from a stamp set that coordinates with them...Lots of Hearts.  
Here's a close up of the sentiment...
I have more cards to show you in the days to come....I have been having lots of fun!!

I hope you all have a WONDERFUL NEW YEARS...may tonight be the start of an amazing new year for each and every one of you...filled with incredible love, wonderful health, mucho happiness and great prosperity!!  Much love to you all...see you in the new year:):):)...yeah!!   Lisa
