Thank You Card

Hello friends!  How are you?  It continues to be hot here in Southern CA.  I will be glad when it cools down.  There are fires everywhere located in several states including California; but my biggest concern is for the people who are having to evacuate due to all sorts of bad weather.  There are some states with horrible storms, tornados and floods.  Please be safe out there.  I hope you are enjoying your summer or whatever season you are in right now.

I created several cards for my sister, Alice; so she can give them to her friends and family.  She writes personalized poems of her own, to add to my cards, for people that she knows.  She is very good at writing poetry and everyone loves them.  She just doesn't have the equipment, tools, etc. to create the cards.  I also end up making double the number of cards; because I have to keep some of my favorites for my family and friends.  I normally send her 25 - 30 cards at a time.  

I sent this card to a close friend of mine.  I love how this paper just pops and these colors go so well together.  It is a lot quicker to create cards that include the gorgeous digital paper and clip art to go with them.  These are easy to print only what you want; and you never run out, because they are a digital file on your computer.  I think I created 23 cards so far; and still have not used all the designs.  Lol!  See below for the link to these two floral sets that I used.

Christmas Card Using Conie Fong Big Gift Boy Elf

Hello friends!  I hope you are staying cool.  It is over 100 degrees again in Southern CA.  We have had a lot of really hot days; which make it hard to breathe, even in the house with air conditioners.  

I am sharing my 2nd Conie Fong DT card using Big Gift Boy Elf; which I have linked below above the photo.  This is one of a set of 3; but it is also sold alone.  I love all 3 of these images. They are so much fun to color and create with.

In case you didn't know; Conie Fong has a special YouTube channel where she teaches people how to draw.  It is a lot of fun.  I think anyone who wants to learn to draw will love it. It is called Draw with Conie YouTube channel.  She has a Facebook group also; where you can share your drawings called Draw With Conie.  We hope to see you there.
