Birthday Card Using Conie Fong "Puppy Cuddles" with Winter Wonderland Cardstock

Hello friends!  I hope you are doing well.  I have tried to get some crafting in at least once a week.  I am starting to sleep a little off and on at night now.  It's like retraining my body to sleep, I guess.   I have never been able to take naps in my life and now I find I need to take them in order to make it through the day/night.  I have been exhausted this past 3 weeks.

Conie Fong "Puppy Cuddles" is a new digital image that she has just released.  I think you will love it.  It is a girl holding a puppy.  Now who doesn't love a puppy.  I had so much fun creating with this adorable girl and her sweet puppy.
