Birthday Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "Purple Balloon" and CTMH products

Hello Friends!  We have cool temperatures in Southern CA; but nothing as cold as some of you have in the US.  The snow looks awesome until you have to drive in it, right?  Stay warm and drive safe.

I purchased this gorgeous new digital stamp a couple days ago; and it is currently half price.  It is Ching-Chou Kuik "Purple Balloon".  Most of you know that I love the color purple; so I had to buy it right away.  LOL!  I decided to keep the color purple for the balloon and found some retired CTMH Make Waves paper that had purple flowers on it.  My other favorite color is pink; so my paper has both.  I felt this card called for a bow and flowers.  LOL!

Hello Friends!  I hope everyone is doing well.  Isn't this weather crazy?  One day it's hot and the next day it is snowing.  Southern CA is colder than normal this year; but at least we don't have ice and snow; except for the mountain areas.  Please stay safe and stay inside if you don't have to go out in the bad weather.

I have been creating with my new CTMH stamp and thin cuts.  This January/February Idea book is full of these sets.  I am in love with them.  This is the 2nd card I created using the CTMH Spruced Up Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts.  I hope you like it.

Birthday Card for Male Using Conie Fong Skateboarding Benny with CTMH Urban Paper

Hello Friends!  I hope you are doing well.  It is nice to start getting back to a routine after all the holiday activities.  We are still cooler here in Southern CA; but it is nice to have cooler temperatures.  Some of the US is a lot warmer than we are; which is very rare.  My daughter called today to tell me that she had 76 degrees in FL and we had 50's at that time.  

I created my grandson a birthday card for his 16th Birthday using Conie Fong "Skateboarding Benny" which is new this month.  You can find it here.  There is also a Conie Fong "Basketball Benny"; and you can find both of these sold as a set here.  I used CTMH Urban Paper Pack; which is only available for this month.
