Birthday Card Using Conie Fong Sweet Annabelle

Hello friends!  I hope everyone is staying cool.  It has been so hot here in Southern CA.  I wish we could go back to the nice weather we had when I first moved here in 1998.  It was perfect all the time.

CTMH has 3 specials for the month Of August.  Scroll down to check them out.  Here's To You is the 1st special.  

I know you will want to see the 2nd special which is the Disney "More Magical" special.  It is a fabulous collection with a magical stamp set to go with it and much more.  

The 3rd special is "You've Got Class"This Workshop is to help you in keeping track of all your children's memories with a special offer.  

I created this Easel card using Conie Fong Sweet AnnabelleI love this sweet image.  We have two challenges on Conie Fong Facebook group.  It is a private group; so you do have to request to join.  We have two challenges each month.  The first one is our coloring challenge and one is our monthly challenge which is Anything Goes with an option.  August option is Birthdays.  You get two entries into the monthly challenge if you use the option; giving you a double chance to win free digi prizes.  We also give prizes for two random people who comment each month.
