Friend Card Using Conie Fong Sunflower Gnome and CTMH Lovely Paper Pack

Hello Friends!  I  hope you are having time to create or do something you love.  I know there are a lot of people still on stay at home orders all over the world; but many have gone back to work too.  It is quite varied at this time.  Please stay safe.

I bought all of these wonderful edgeable dies from Crafters Companion on auto ship; but this is only the 2nd one I have used.  They are so much fun; and I still have more to come.  I am a collector of many things and dies seems to be something I enjoy collecting.  I wish I had time and energy to use them all.  

CTMH has two new Idea books which started Sept 1st and this paper pack outside of card plus inside of card are both from the new set of CTMH Lovely Paper Pack X8015B.  I am in love with this paper.  It is a pack of 12; which is even more exciting and from our Core Idea book; which is good for a year.  

I used the new Conie Fong "Sunflower Gnome" digital image.  I have trouble coloring small images; so I try and make them 4 - 4.5 inches so I can see them.  I have a magnifying lamp; but I still need them larger to color them properly; which is one of the main reasons I use digital images.  I can size them any size that I want, as long as they fit on a card.  LOL!  I also buy the PNG files, so I can add them to my Cricut for print and cut.  It sure makes cutting easier as well.  My hands are quite deformed from arthritis and cutting with thin cuts or Cricut is a big help.

Paper outside and inside is from CTMH Lovely Paper Pack X8015B
Available Sept 1st, 2020 in the new CTMH Core Idea Book
