Happy Valentine Card Using Conie Fong Gnome With Balloon Bundle and CTMH Smitten Paper

Hello Friends! I hope you are all doing well.  It is starting off to be an interesting and stressful year.  It has been in the upper 80's and 90's here in Southern CA and high winds.  We have at least one fire that I am aware of, near Laguna Beach, CA.  This hot weather and high winds creates the perfect fire storm.  So sad.  

I haven't felt good at all this month; so I have not posted anything.  I am going to try and get this one posted today.  I created a lot of cards last month to send off for Valentine's Day and some I made into any occasion.  I am in love with this sweet Conie Fong "Gnome With Balloon and Sentiment Bundle".  It is perfect for any occasion.  I love making pink clouds; even if I rarely get to see them in the sky.  LOL!
