TUIC January Challenge

Hi Everyone and welcome to Saturday.  I hope it is nice wherever you are.  Right now it is sunny and above freezing.  The sun should melt some of the snow we have had over the past couple of days. 

The Tangled Up In Creativity blog group has 2 challenges for the month of January.  The first one up for me is the challenge over at Miss Molly's Creations and is open to everyone.  We are challenged to be inspired by something we received at Christmas.

So here is my inspiration.  This is a Brighton box and their symbol is the heart, so what is more appropriate than a Valentine card.  Inside was a charm for my bracelet that I received from my daughter.
