Love Calendar Card Using Conie Fong Susie Sunshine with Balloon Right Digi

Hello friends!   I hope everyone is doing well.  I have been having all sorts of pain in muscles and joints; but worse in my left arm for almost two weeks; and don't have a clue what is causing it.  Hopefully it stops soon.  

My friend Vannessa Hasty created several calendar cards over the past couple years and she peaked my interest in creating some for my family and friends.  I found the general instructions from a Tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers; after I had already bought some little calendars from Ebay.  This tutorial provides you a link for a free calendar that you can print and cut yourself.  I used it on another three calendar cards that were white backgrounds.  These colors are very hard to photograph; but I did the best I could.

This is another fabulous new image called Conie Fong "Susie Sunshine With Balloon Right"It has 4 images with it.  One with balloon, one without balloon with each of these facing both right and left.  Stay tuned the other version coming later this month.
