All Occasion Mini Slimline Card Using Conie Fong Cat With Balloons

Hello friends!  How are you?  I hope you are having time to craft or to do something you love.  It seems to get harder each day to find time for ourselves in this very busy world we live in.  I actually went with my husband yesterday for the day to visit his parents and aunt/uncle grave sites.  We found a wonderful restaurant not far from the cemetery and had a wonderful lunch.  We were gone all day; so it was a very long day.  Traffic was really bad coming home.

I got lucky and was able to get two cards created with this cute new little Conie Fong Cat With Balloons.  There are also a new Cat Family; but I haven't had time to do anything with them yet.  I am a cat lover; so I know I will use them.  

Conie Fong Art & Design has created a free Draw With Conie YouTube series teaching you how to draw.  It is a fun way to learn to draw.  Conie has been adding some of the images to her Etsy store.  This Cat With Balloons is one of her new images, that the DT are sharing this weekend.  I love this sweet image and it was very easy to color.  I haven't colored much since November, I think.  I need to learn how to color all over again.  Lol!

I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience.

Just Saying Hello Card Using Conie Fong Cat with Balloons

Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well.  It is supposed to rain again Sunday.  I can't believe how much rain we have had this past 2 months.  Normally, Southern CA goes a year between rains.  Take time to do something fun.
