Conie Fong "Purrfect Christmas" Using CTMH Holly Jolly Paper Pack with December SOTM

Hello Friends!  How are you doing?  I know some of you have already had snow, sleet, frost, etc. in the US.  It is still too hot here in Southern CA.  

I hope you are able to find time to create.  I haven't gotten to until last night when I couldn't sleep.  It felt so good to be back crafting.  I feel like a part of me is missing when I take too long away from it.  

Conie Fong created another amazing image with cats.  I love cats; so of course I had to color it right away.  I couldn't sleep last night; so I was able to finish this card with the new adorable Conie Fong "Purrfect Christmas"; which includes a sentiment. 

I was able to use some of my new CTMH Holly Jolly Christmas Paper; plus other CTMH products.  It's like Christmas each month when I receive my new CTMH products and I want to use them right away.  I try to allow them to air out first in another bedroom; with my 3 diffusers on using Young Living oils for at least a week; but sometimes it is a month before I can use them.  

Using CTMH products - See below photos
