Heart 2 Heart Challenge - "This is My Hometown"

The theme of this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge is "This is My Hometown".  I am a Texas transplant - love living here in the Dallas Metroplex - but am a New Mexico girl at heart.  I decided to use the new, M-size, New Mexico stamp set (there is one for each state and all Canadian providences) for this week's artwork.  I felt the Sangria paper pack screamed New Mexico so used it for some fun color!  
This is a 3x3 card where the Sangria patterned paper, coordinating cardstock, Gold Foil Tape and Fern Twine were perfect for representing my heritage. I hope you love it too!  The New England Ivy and Goldrush paper pieces came from the Enchantment Fundamentals paper pack.  The colors of this card remind me of green and red chili (called and spelled "chile" where I'm from)...  Sheesh!  What I wouldn't give for some southwest New Mexico food right now!

If you care to know, I was born and raised in Silver City, NM.  It is a quaint little town nestled at the base of the Gila National Forest, north of I-20, just north of Deming that is located on the Mexico border.  While we grew up having to drive at least two hours to get to a mall, there were some fun ways we discovered to spend our time while living "out in the middle of nowhere".  If you are ever looking for a place to visit, you might want to give it a try.  There are a lot of outdoor activities - hiking, fishing, etc. - and a lot of yummy places to eat that serve the best Mexican food around!

Now, consider joining us for this challenge and link up to us at Heart 2 Heart!  We love to see your creativity at work!

Have a blessed week!
