Thinking Of You Using Ching-Chou Kuik The Dragonfly and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hello friends!  How are you?  I hope it is getting cooler for the fall weather where you are. I am hoping that we will cool down soon here in Southern CA.  I love Spring and Fall. They are my favorite seasons.

It is time for another inspiration post for Ching-Chou Kuik and our topic this week is White on White.  I always love white cards and also monochromatic cards.  We were allowed to color our image; but had to use white on white; so no patterned paper.  I have used The Dragonfly image; which is part of the Ching-Chou Kuik Circle Oriental Kimono image collection for my card.  The color on this card is actually a beautiful purple color; not blue; but none of the pictures came out the right color.  Very strange that some purples will not photograph at all.

As You Like It Challenge - Favorite Song or Film and Why?  Another Favorite Song of mine is "Wind Beneath My Wings" by Bette Midler.  I think friendship is important to our lives and to our sanity.  What would we do without friends?  We all need someone to listen to us, to be there for us at all time and to always care about us without judging us.
