Thinking Of You Card Using Conie Fong Rosealea Mermaid

Hello friends!   How are you?  I don't know what your weather is; but we were having upper 80's for our temperatures; and then it dropped into the upper 60's on Wednesday.  Now it is trending towards hot again.  It is too soon for summer.  I really like the cooler temps in the 60's is my preference.  I love to see all the plants blooming and new life showing up on them every day. 

I am sharing my latest creation using the New Release  - Conie Fong "Rosealea Mermaid and Sentiment Bundle".  I love this sweet image and you can use her for all occasions.  I am using her for a Thinking of You card.  I will probably keep her for myself for a while.  She is just stunning and I love the digital paper I used for her.  

Conie Fong "Rosealea Mermaid and Sentiment Bundle"

The colors are as close as I could get.  They are lavender, purple, blue violet and shades or blue greens.

Thank you visiting my blog.  I hope you enjoy my creations.  I appreciate all of you.  Be sure to check out my tabs at the top of the page for my videos, tutorials, clubs, specials and  more. Call, text, Facebook message or email me with any questions you might have.

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!!
