Birthday Card Using Conie Fong "Puppy Cuddles" with Winter Wonderland Cardstock

Hello friends!  I hope you are doing well.  I have tried to get some crafting in at least once a week.  I am starting to sleep a little off and on at night now.  It's like retraining my body to sleep, I guess.   I have never been able to take naps in my life and now I find I need to take them in order to make it through the day/night.  I have been exhausted this past 3 weeks.

Conie Fong "Puppy Cuddles" is a new digital image that she has just released.  I think you will love it.  It is a girl holding a puppy.  Now who doesn't love a puppy.  I had so much fun creating with this adorable girl and her sweet puppy.

Birthday Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "Poppy In Blue PC"

Hello friends!   How is everyone?  It was over 104 degrees here in Southern CA yesterday and around that same temperature today.  I am ready for the fall weather or at least cooler weather.  LOL!

I am getting more crafting done right now; since I can't sleep.  I really would like to sleep; but decided just to get up and craft if I can't sleep.  I am having to retrain my body to sleep.  You would think when a body got tired; you could sleep; but it isn't true.  LOL!

I created this card using Ching-Chou Kuik "Poppy In Blue PC"; which means that it is partially colored.  The flowers and the skin were already colored; which made this image easier to finish.  I didn't know that this shade of blue is hard to photograph; just like the problems I have with purple.

The blues are darker on this card and the hair is more blonde; but I did the best I could in taking these photos.  I am entering this card in the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge for Autumn.  I live in Southern CA and our Autumn is different than other places.  I believe the colors are deeper and richer for Autumn; so that is what I chose to work with for this challenge.  I hope you enjoy this gorgeous partially colored image that I finished into a card.
