Thank You Card Using Conie Fong Bella Rose and CTMH From The Heart Stamp Set

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  This has been a really rough year for bad weather; and it doesn't look like it's not over yet.  My heart goes out to the people in Mexico, the Islands hit in the Atlantic, and parts of the United States.  2 big Earthquakes and 1 Hurricane in Mexico in such a short time.   Hurricane Harvey came back three times to hit Texas and LA.  Hurricane Irma and then Hurricane Maria both hit some of the Islands in the Atlantic.  Hurricane Irma hit south FL very hard; and now it looks like Hurricane Maria is headed for the East coast of the United States.  What a mess!  

My mind and body decided it was time to take a break from everything, including crafting until November.  There has been so much going on with family and with my health; that I can't keep up right now.  I need a break; so watch for my next post in November; if all goes well.

I created a Thank You card using Conie Fong "Bella Rose"; which is one of Conie Fong new releases for September.  I love this sweet image.  I had to use my new paper that I purchased from a friend of mine on her Facebook group.  I tried not to cover the paper with these beautiful flowers and butterflies.  I hope you like it.  

I also used the CTMH "From The Heart" stamp set from our September National Stamping month card kit, on the inside.  It is only available in September.  Get yours before the end of September.  See more information by clicking link.  More pictures below for the September special.
