HAPPY 2016!!!!!

Hello everyone: I have one last card to share with you in this 2015, I'm linking it to the Freshly Made Sketches #217 , here is my card.

This is a simple card to wish you all a wonderful 2016!!!!!
I die cut a piece of Ninah Solar White card stock with the Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 dies and stamped it a few times with one of the SU Gorgeous Grunge stamps using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I also stamped and heat embossed the word "cheers" and the 2016 numbers. 
I then stamped one of the images in the retired SU ''Happy Hour'' stamp set with Blackberry Bliss, I like the way the ''bubbles'' look like they are floating from the glass.
Simple and festive, a lot of bubbly will flow at my house tonight.
Here is a picture of the inside.

And here is the banner that inspired this card.

Thank you for stopping by today and thank you for all the sweet, encouraging comments you left on my blog throughout 2015, it's been such fun to participate in the Freshly Made Challenges and an honor for my cards to be picked a few times by you, fabulous ladies.
I'm looking forward to another year of challenges.
The Rodriguez family wishes you a Joyful and Healthy 2016!!!!!
Hugs from Maria.

Happy New Year, Maria! Thank you for all your incredible support and comments throughout the year. It has been such fun watching your blog blossom with your amazing work!

Thank you Mary, you have always been such a great friend, even if we haven't met in person, I feel so fortunate to know you through your amazing blog.
I'm so glad I listen to Sonny Peterson, she is the one who kept pushing and nudging and pushing some more for me to take this leap of faith and get a blog and I can tell you that it's been a BLAST ever since. I love sharing my cards with all of you amazing crafters, you've been such an inspiration and a friend.
I'm so glad you lived in Madison, WI. when I was looking for a demonstrator, that is one of the reasons I picked you. Madison is a city I hold very close to my heart, it saw me becoming an Iron Man in 2006!!
Hugs and best wishes for you and your family for a Joyful and Healtly 2016!!!
