Conie Fong "Purrfect Christmas" Using CTMH Holly Jolly Paper Pack with December SOTM

Hello Friends!  How are you doing?  I know some of you have already had snow, sleet, frost, etc. in the US.  It is still too hot here in Southern CA.  

I hope you are able to find time to create.  I haven't gotten to until last night when I couldn't sleep.  It felt so good to be back crafting.  I feel like a part of me is missing when I take too long away from it.  

Conie Fong created another amazing image with cats.  I love cats; so of course I had to color it right away.  I couldn't sleep last night; so I was able to finish this card with the new adorable Conie Fong "Purrfect Christmas"; which includes a sentiment. 

I was able to use some of my new CTMH Holly Jolly Christmas Paper; plus other CTMH products.  It's like Christmas each month when I receive my new CTMH products and I want to use them right away.  I try to allow them to air out first in another bedroom; with my 3 diffusers on using Young Living oils for at least a week; but sometimes it is a month before I can use them.

Wedding Card Using CTMH Cricut You Are Here and CTMH Cricut Flower Market cartridges

Hello Friends!  I hope everyone is doing well.  The weather has been bad for some of you in the US; with snow, sleet, etc. already starting and it is only October.  Please stay safe.

I haven't felt good since my last two vacations; so I haven't done any crafting since I got home on Oct. 1st.  I am starting to feel withdrawals from it and need to create something soon.  

This is a wedding card I created for my grandson and his new bride. They got married last month.  I loved this heart die and really wanted to use it.  I love my die cuts from my CTMH Cricut cartridges; but wasn't sure if these looked good on the inside of this card.  I think I should have changed the grey faces/skin; but I just used what was already there for colors.  Oh well, too late now.  It was created and sent in September.
