All Occasion Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "Light Of Hope"

Hello friends.  How is everyone?  I hope you are doing well.  We finally were able to take our 2 week vacation that we planned for the past 3 yrs.  It was two weeks driving trip; but my husband drove over 4,000 miles.  I slept a lot.  LOL!  I guess I was tired; because I couldn't stay awake.  I was still tired when we got home.  It was a good trip.  We did a lot of moving around with 7 different hotels.  My husband planned the entire vacation; so I booked the hotels, called them with my allergy requests, obtained maps and directions, etc.  We were able to stay in Portland, Oregon area for 3 days and Seattle, WA for 6 days; so it was a good trip.  I felt very blessed that my husband was able to drive.  We were able to see a lot of awesome scenery; so it was very enjoyable; just busy.  

It is time for my Ching-Chou Kuik Inspirational post.  Our theme this week is die cuts.  I used "Light of Hope"; so be sure to check out other CCK images.  She has specials on a regular basis; so keep checking back on Etsy for her new releases.  I loved this paper; and wanted to show the design as much as I can.  My favorite part is inside with the sentiment already on it.  It is much prettier in person.  I hope you enjoy it.
