Thank You Cards Using CTMH From The Heart Card Kit for September National Stamping Month

Hello friends.  Did anyone see the total eclipse?  I forgot about it; until I was riding my bicycle.  A friendly lady asked if I wanted to see it; so I looked through her glasses.  We didn't have a total eclipse here in Southern CA; but it was really cool to see even a partial one.   

This is a special for September; but I wanted to share it now.  I think this card kit is really pretty.  I just wish I was better at stamping.  I know it takes a lot of practice.  I have been coloring digis for so long; that stamping seems foreign to me now.  I started out stamping; and coloring a digi was a challenge for me. Now, I feel that coloring digis is easier; and stamping is a challenge for me. LOL! 

I normally do not create card kits as they are instructed; but I liked this one the way it was created below; so I decided to give it my best shot.  I hope you enjoy these cards.  They are a set of 12 interactive cards which are available in September only; for National Stamping Month.  You can purchase cards/envelopes or stamp set separately; but it is a better deal as a kit.  There are 35 stamp images in this set of stamps.  A lot of variety.  I made Thank you cards for my customers.

Thinking Of You Card Using CTMH Basic Paper Fundamentals with Ching-Chou Kuik "Believe In Faith"

Hello friends.  It has been a little cooler in Southern CA for the past few days; but it is supposed to get hotter again by Friday.  How is your weather where you live?  Are you having time to create?  

I haven't been able to create much lately.  It is challenging when you are in pain; but I finally managed to get this one done in time for my DT on Monday.  It is lavender and grays, despite the fact that it looks blue.  LOL!  

I am using the new CTMH Basic Paper Fundamentals; which I fell in love with; the minute I saw them.  I don't normally like grays and browns; but this set of papers is absolutely stunning to me.  We have all new Basic cardstock in this new Annual Inspirations Idea book; plus all of our cardstock is two colors.  You will notice that I used the reverse side of my cardstock; as those are the new colors.  

It is time for another Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post.  I am using a new image called "Believe In Faith".  I thought this image was beautiful; but my card didn't quite reach what I had visioned for it.  LOL!

All Occasion Card Using Cricut You Are Here Cartridge with CCK Gentleness image

Hello friends.  How is everyone?  I hope this finds you well and enjoying the weather; wherever you are.  It has continued to be very hot here; but the temperatures are supposed to be a little cooler today.  I hope that is true.  You know many times the weatherman tells you it will be cooler; but it ends up being hotter.  I know it must be very hard to predict the weather.  LOL!  

I haven't been able to create very much the past couple weeks; due to severe pain. I can never really figure out what is causing it when it hits me like this; so I just have to suffer through it until it decides to go ease up.  

It is my turn to share my Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post with you.  I am using Ching-Chou Kuik "Gentleness" on my card today.  Our topic is to "use a color you dislike/don't use very often."  I love all colors; and don't have one that I don't like (that I know of); so I am using brown/golds that I rarely use.  You know most of my cards are purples, pinks, blues, greens, yellows and some reds. I really do love these fall colors.  

You still have time to join us in our Ching-Chou Kuik August challenge; which is "4 Legged Friends".  You will have a chance to win gorgeous images created by Ching-Chou Kuik.
