Birthday Card Using Conie Fong Seashell Rosealea

Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well.  It has been crazy weather here in Southern CA.  It was hot for a few days, then cooler and then rain.  I hope you are all enjoying your spring or whatever season it is where you live. 

I had so much fun coloring this gorgeous image.  I am in love with some of the new digital papers I purchased or got free from Creative Fabrica.  This is one of them.  The colors are not as bright and vibrant when I print them from my computer; but they are still gorgeous.

I used the new Conie Fong "Seashell Rosealea".  I am in love with this sweet image.  I love coloring hair.  I still need to improve on coloring; but I think I do as well as I can with my deformed fingers.  It is hard sometimes to do anything with this arthritis.  It is such a blessing to be able to color/create, doing something I truly love doing.

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!!
