Thinking Of You Card Using CTMH Spruced Up Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts plus more

Hello Friends!  I hope everyone is doing well.  Isn't this weather crazy?  One day it's hot and the next day it is snowing.  Southern CA is colder than normal this year; but at least we don't have ice and snow; except for the mountain areas.  Please stay safe and stay inside if you don't have to go out in the bad weather.

I have been creating with my new CTMH stamp and thin cuts.  This January/February Idea book is full of these sets.  I am in love with them.  This is the 2nd card I created using the CTMH Spruced Up Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts.  I hope you like it.
