Birthday Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Radiant Soul

Hi friends!  Where have you been for vacation this year?  What did you do for fun this summer?  Are you getting time to craft?  I am hoping to go on vacation sometime soon; but still not sure of the date.  We have wanted to do a driving vacation for several years; but it hasn't worked out.  I hope this year is different.

It's time for my Inspiration Post for Ching-Chou Kuik.  I have created a card using this gorgeous image - Ching-Chou Kuik Radiant Soul.  I love her!  I hope you will take the time to join our September challenge on our Ching-Chou Kuik (CCK) blog.  We also have challenges on our CCK Facebook group, as well. We have several challenges for you to enter with a chance to win free digis.  Be brave and go for it.  You won't regret it!

As You Like It - Favorite Song & Why?  Another favorite song of mine is "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle.  It makes me feel happy and sad at the same time.  I remember those butterfly kisses from all three of my children and from some of my grandchildren as well. Those butterfly kisses have meant so much to me over the years; especially as I get older. I still remember them to this day.
