Birthday Card Using Conie Fong Dandelion Wishes with New CTMH Birthday Hugs and Kisses inside

Hello Friends!  Isn't the weather crazy over the United States?  Actually, I think it has been crazy all over the world.  I am feeling better now; but still not up to myself completely.  It is hard to get things done, especially when you have been sick and run down.  I feel exhausted right now.

I finally got this card finished.  I did the coloring quickly; but struggled some with my card.  It is for my granddaughter, Gabrielle - for her April birthday.  She just had a sweet baby girl in January; so I feel this card will show her how much I love her and miss her.  

My husband and I were supposed to travel to FL this month to see my new great granddaughter and several other family members; but I decided it was best to cancel the flight.  I would not have felt like traveling.  I feel I made the right decision.  It would have been too hard on my body.  Hopefully, we can go later in the year when I have my strength back.

I used I Am Roses for my flowers.  I just bought these gorgeous flowers and was very pleased with them.
