Christmas Card Using Conie Fong Noelle's Gift with CTMH Paper

Hello Friends.  I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and a wonderful New Years Eve!  It has been very busy at our house for the month of December; with very hot weather here in Southern CA.  I can't believe it can be below 0 on East Coast and 80's and 90's on the West Coast.  Isn't this crazy weather?

I am writing this on New Year's Eve; because a neighbor is having a very noisy party behind our house; which is where my bedroom is located.  There will be no sleeping until very late.  It is a bunch of teenagers and they really know how to party with very loud music; yelling and screaming for hours.  I wish I had that kind of energy again; but I don't think I would waste it on partying.  LOL!  I was never a party person even when I was young and we didn't have parties like these kids do.  My parents would never have allowed it.  

I finally found time this past few days to color and create a Christmas card using my new Conie Fong "Noelle's Gift".  I thought I would get a head start on next year's Christmas cards.  I didn't make enough of them this year; so I want to remedy that for next year.  I hope you enjoy this gorgeous lady and her Christmas cheer.
