Thinking of You Card Using Conie Fong "Braids In My Hair" with CTMH Paper

Hello Friends!  I hope all of you are staying at home that can and getting time to create.  I decided I had seen enough of the Coronavirus messages and took the afternoon and evening off last night to craft.  I needed a break mentally and physically from watching the news and shows about people with the virus, etc.  

I came across a digital image that I had colored; but never got around to creating a card with it.  I don't recall that ever happening to me before.  LOL!  So, here is my Kit and Clowder class photo using Conie Fong "Braids In My Hair" which is a cropped version used for the class.  It is not available anywhere as a crop except for the class.  Conie Fong does not allow any cropping or changes to her images; but this was an exception for us to learn how to color braids for the Kit and Clowder class only.

Using CTMH Sentiments & Stitches C1835

Supplies used to create this card:

Flower Border - Memory Box Fairytale Flower Border
Thinking of You - Crafters Companion
