All Occasion Card Using Conie Fong Butterfly Kisses

Hello friends!  I hope you are doing well.  I have been trying to recuperate from my vacation.   I always need a vacation from our vacation.  LOL!  Traveling is very hard for me and I have been exhausted.  

My printer broke down on Monday night; so I tried figuring out what was wrong with it all day Tuesday; and finally went out and bought a new one.  I am lost without a printer.  

It is time for another new release - Conie Fong "Butterfly Kisses".  You can buy this digi alone or with Butterfly Wishes as a set.  I can't believe Conie Fong just keeps getting better and better at her creations.  I was so excited to use this new digi.  I love butterflies; so this one is very special to me.  Be sure to check out her other gorgeous digital stamps.  We would love to have you join our Conie Fong Facebook group and enter your Conie Fong images in our monthly challenges. There are always random drawings; so everyone has a chance to win.

I created this card for my daughter, Jenny, who is moving tomorrow from MO to FL.  She just got a divorce and is having a very rough time.  It is hard to be a mother; and even harder when it doesn't work out with your spouse.  She had to put her oldest dog to sleep today; so it was an emotional day for all of us.  Missy has been a member of the family for a very long time.   I sure hope things settle down for her and her family after they get moved.  It is hard for me when her life is in turmoil.  I am sure all mother's out there can relate to that.
