Thinking of You Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Monarch of the Flora & Fauna Set 1

Hello friends!  It is still raining in Southern CA; so don't believe that song that it never rains in Southern CA.  Someone turned it on; and now we can't get it to stop.  LOL!  When I first moved to Southern CA in 1998; it hardly ever rained here.  I feel like I have moved back to Florida with all this rain.  

I hope all of you are well. Try to stay out of the crowds right now.  There are several viruses going around.  My husband and I have had a bad virus since Christmas and it just keeps hanging on.  We are getting better; but we still have a cough.  

It is time for another Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration post.  This week our topic is Anything Goes.  I used another one of Ching-Chou Kuik Flora and Fauna Set 1. I am using Monarch.  I love this set of 8 images.  This is my second image out of this set; so I have 6 more to use.  They are so much fun!

All Occasion Card Using CTMH Hello Lovely Paper

Hello friends!  It has started out to be a very rainy year here in Southern CA.  We have had more rain this year than we had last year; if my memory serves me correctly.  LOL!   I feel like I am back in Florida; where it rained every day.  Of course, this is a lot more rain than that was.  LOL!

It is time for Art by Miran Facebook Progressive Challenge.  Isn't this image gorgeous?  She is Lady Emma.  I loved coloring her.  We would love to have you join us in our monthly Facebook Progressive Challenge.  If you are new to Art by Miran; you can purchase this image for a discounted price, create something and enter into the challenge; for a chance to win more images.

I am using my new Close To My Heart Hello Lovely Paper pack; which I love! It is double sided and all of the paper is fabulous.  All of the papers inside and outside are from that same paper pack.

Ching-Chou Kuik Flora and Fauna Set 1 - Using Jasmine

Good morning!  How is everyone?  It has been very wet and cold here in Southern CA.  We went from a severe drought to an abundance of rain.  It had been cooler too than normal.  The cool temperatures would be better without the dampness.  LOL!  At least it isn't snow.  

It is time for another Ching-Chou Kuik Blog Inspiration post and our topic this week is "All About The Blues".  I had fun with this topic.  It is hard sometimes to find many different shades of the same color; but I was able to do it.  Plus, I decided to go with as much blue as I could on the image as well.   This is just one of 8 images in Ching-Chou Kuik Flora and Fauna Set 1.  This image is Jasmine.  I love this set of images.  Of course, I love all of Ching-Chou Kuik creations.  Each one gives me more opportunities to get better with my coloring. LOL!  

I hope you will take the time to join us in our Ching-Chou Kuik Blog Challenge "Use Something New".   This one should be an easy challenge for all of you.  We are also having a Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook Birthday Celebration.   Just click on link for Facebook group; join if you aren't a member, click on photos at the top of page, then on Albums.  Click on the Birthday Celebration folder.  Request your free "Magic Wish" digi and create a fabulous tag to help celebrate Ching-Chou Kuik's birthday.
