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.

Any Occasion Card Using Cricut You Are Here Cartridge with CTMH new two sided cardstocks

Hello friends.  Have you done anything fun this summer?  I guess it could be Winter where some of you live.  It was 98 degrees again today.  So hot for Southern CA.  I haven't done anything exciting; as it is just too hot.  

It is my turn for another Inspiration Post for Ching-Chou Kuik.  I have wanted to create a book shaped card for years; as I am a book lover.  CTMH has a new Cricut You Are Here Cartridge that just came out August 1st; which has all of these die cuts; including the book die cut.  The only thing on this card that isn't from that cartridge; of course, is the sweet Ching-Chou Kuik "Lil Bookworm Fairy".  

This is the smallest image I have ever colored.  I had to make the card 8 inches long; so that I could add this sweet image.  I had to reduce the image to 2.25 inches, so that it would fit on the book page of the card.  In case you can't read it: it says Travel The World (inside the globe) and This Way To Fun below that.  I love that books can take you anywhere you want to go and they are so much fun! The book die is a bright pink; in case you can't tell. LOL!  

I created this card for my granddaughter, Abigail; who will be 18 yrs old in August, a junior in high school.  She is a writer and has written 3 books so far. She has started her 3rd book of one trilogy and writing a 2nd book for the other trilogy.  She is a fabulous writer and we are hoping to get her published.  I love all 3 of her books and can't wait to read the new ones.  I am so very proud of her. She is an amazing young lady.  I hope this will encourage her to continue her love of writing; which I never did.  

All die cuts (except square frames); including the book die cut; from the
