Birthday Card Using CTMH Laughing Lola Paper and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hello to all of you wonderful friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I know our country is in a big mess right now with parts of the government shutting down.  It is affecting a lot of people.  I hope they get it resolved soon. 
I finally had time to create a card using a Mojo Monday sketch.  It has been a very long time since I was able to do this.  I am so excited.  I also created another video; which should be out in a day or two.
