Get Well Pleated card Using New CTMH Happy Times Paper pack

Hello friends! I hope everyone is doing well.  It has been fairly warm here in Southern CA this past week; but a little cooler right now. 

It has been a very busy and very tough week for me.  I spent most of my days on the phone with the Dr's and my sister's for my mother's care.  Unfortunately, my sweet mother passed away on Wednesday morning.  She was in so much pain; so it was a blessing for her; so she won't have to suffer any longer.  It has been very tough on all of us; especially my sisters and brother who have been visiting her at the nursing home this past two weeks.  

I needed a break from everything I have been dealing with and wanted to get my mind off of all the sadness I have been feeling.  Crafting is the best outlet for me and helps me so much to cope with all the stress I have had in my life.  I love to share my creations and hopefully cheer someone else with what I have created.

I created this last Get Well Card for my mother several days ago; using the new CTMH Happy Times paper pack that you can get for free in May with each $60 purchase, or you can purchase it for $14.95.  It is gorgeous and has several sheets with foil on them.  This card is using two different papers.  This was my first time to try this pretty pleated card front.  I am sharing the video that I used to create it.  It was super fun.  

Sorry if this is all out of whack.  It looks fine on Blogger; but when I view it; it has a lot of misplaced sentences, etc.  Crazy system.

Be sure to fold from both ends into the middle; rather than what she shows on this video, to get the one I created here.
