Valentine's Card Using Conie Fong "Sweetheart Bella With Hugs" and CTMH Heart Happy Special

Hello friends!   Today is sunny and 60's here in Southern CA.  I was able to get out and take a nice walk.  It is supposed to start raining again on Wednesday, I think.  I know many of you have really cold weather and snow; so I am happy to be having nothing worse than rain.  We actually had thunder and lightning a few times; which was awesome for a change.   I love a good rain storm.  LOL!

I have finally felt better and able to create some Valentine cards and got them sent today.  I just hope they arrive in time for Valentine's Day.  I created my 2nd card using Conie Fong Sweetheart Bella With Hugs.  My previous one was Conie Fong Sweetheart Bella With Love; and I used Prisma Colored Pencils on that one.  I used Copic markers on this one and I had to color her in pink.  It was that or purple.  LOL!  These adorable bears come with 3 in a set.   Besides Love and Hugs; the 3rd one is a blank heart; so that you can write anything in it; including someone's name.  

(which includes everything in kit)
Available through Feb. 28, 2019 or While Supplies Last
