All Occasion Card Using Conie Fong Sunflower Bella With CTMH Stamp/Die Sets

Hello friends!  I hope everyone is enjoying their summer or winter; depending on where you live.  It has turned hot in Southern CA; and going to get hotter.  I wish we could skip all the hot weather and just have 60's or 70's all year long; like we use to have.  I know some people love the heat; but I love cooler temperatures; just not cold.  

I haven't had much time to create lately.  I have had more health issues; so have started trying to get more exercise; which means less time in the craft room.  I didn't know exercise could be so much work.  LOL!  I use to swim in the mornings before I became allergic to chlorine.  Then I danced with my husband; taking dance lessons, before I became allergic to the smells from cologne, perfume, etc.  Now I either ride my bike outdoors when it isn't too hot or ride my indoor bike; which is harder to ride than my outdoor bike.  LOL!  My husband has started walking with me in the evenings if it isn't too hot for me.

I created this card for a dear friend of mine who is going through some life changes right now.  I used Conie Fong "Sunflower Bella"; which I have wanted to use for quite some time.  You can find it at the Etsy store.
