All Occasion Card Using CTMH March Stamp of the Month Koala

Hello friends!  How is everyone?  I hope you are doing well.  We finally have sunshine for two days; but it is supposed to rain again Tuesday and Wednesday.  I am in shock that we are having so much rain; but everything is blooming and our grass is a fabulous green.  LOL!

I have been having some health issues and it is hard for me to color smaller images at times when my eyes are acting up.  I used the  CTMH March SOTM - Precious Moments S2303 of little animals and fabulous sentiments.  It is so adorable!  I love it!  I have tried all month to feel good enough to see to color and create with them.  I always have such a time with my photos.  The circle around the Koala and inside cardstock is Periwinkle; but the photo colors are distorted.

This paper, CTMH Life's A Hoot - X7290B is gorgeous.  I just bought a second packet of it; because the Jan - March catalog retires on the 31st; so it might be sold out before then once people see how awesome it is.

Click here for my new CTMH Videos. I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience. 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!!
