Thinking Of You Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "Love" and CTMH Happy Times Paper

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I can't believe how time flies.  It is already September and I don't know where the summer went.  I think it flies faster when you stay inside and don't go anywhere.  LOL!  We were supposed to go on a vacation this summer; but it was too hot and we weren't sure if I could travel very well on my restricted diet.  It can be challenging just trying to stick with it at home.  I guess I can wait till next year.  

It is time for another wonderful, fun challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik Blog Challenge.  It is Sympathy, Thank You or Thinking of You.  I chose to create a card using Thinking of You. I think this one can be used for anything; including Thank you.

As You Like It Challenge - I like square 6 x 6 sized cards the best; but my second favorite size is the 5 x 7.  There are dies that won't work on the 6 x 6 cards; and will only work on a 5 x 7 rectangle size.
