Thank You Card Using Cricut Artfully Sent Cartridge and CTMH La Vie En Rose Paper

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I am still having a lot of pain; but still managing to create a card every now and then.  It helps to occupy my mind and makes me feel better if I can create; but sometimes I just can't color too well; due to my swollen fingers.  

I finished my blog celebration prizes and shipped all but one of the other prizes.   I gave away 35 prizes counting the 20 different digi prizes. It was so much fun; but it is a lot of work.  It is always difficult finding the people when they win; and hard to figure out sometimes if they are US or Overseas.  I can't ship my CTMH prizes overseas; so they receive the digital prizes. I had a lot of fabulous sponsors for this Celebration and I am very grateful for all of them.  I loved having so many people visit my blog, join as new followers and 113 people joined me in my Blog Celebration.  92 links and 21 without blogs; that I added to the list.  I wish I could have given everyone a prize; but can you imagine giving out 113 prizes.  It would be so much fun!  

I created this card a few days ago; but haven't been able to type much.  I had to finish my drawings and post the winners; which was my top priority.  The card base was cut using the Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge.  I find new cards all the time that I haven't tried yet.  I hope you enjoy it.
