Valentine's Card using Conie Fong Penguin Bundle of Love with CTMH Products

Hello friends!  How are you doing?  I hope you are staying warm in the cold weather.  I am in Southern CA; and we are back to very hot again; in the upper 80's.  The weather is so weird this year.  

Please take care of yourselves; as the flu is very bad this year.  I know so many people who have it or had it; and the cough seems to be difficult to get rid of for so many.  I feel so bad for all of those who have lost family this year due to the flu virus.  It is frightening to say the least.  

I rarely create Valentine's Cards; but I had no choice when Conie Fong "Penguin Bundle of Love" was created.  LOL!  This is so precious; that I had to use it right away.
