Friend Card Using CTMH Sending Smiles Stamp Set

Hello friends!  How is everyone doing?  I actually went with my husband today for a drive to the beach; and then we went to lunch.  I haven't been out much in the past 3 1/2 yrs since COVID hit; so this was a big deal for me.  I wasn't able to walk on the beach due to my swollen left knee; but at least I got to see the ocean and eat at one of my favorite restaurants.  

I just realized I never posted this card and several others that I created during the same time frame.  Time really flies and I put cards away without posting.  This is one of my favorites that I sent to my dear friend, Lisa.  I used CTMH Now & Forever Special (products).  These items sold out right away; so I felt lucky that I was able to buy them before they sold out.

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!!
