Christmas card Using Ching Chou Kuik Christmas Cuddle and CTMH products

Hello friends.   How are you?  It is so nice for you to visit my blog and to see my latest creations.  I really appreciate all of you; and especially those who take the time to make a comment.  Blogland is about sharing and getting to know each other; about making our world a safe place to share what we love.  I feel very honored to be a part of this creative culture.

As most of you know; I have health challenges and one of those is migraines; but I try to create as often as I can.  I belong to two Design Teams; which I love.  I think it is easier sometimes to have a set time and place (structure) to follow for my creations.  Otherwise, I don't push myself to do them regularly.  But this can be very challenging as well; especially when you don't feel well.  I know there are many of you out there with similar health issues; that make it hard to create.  I am so very proud of people who continue creating in spite of their poor health.  

It is time for another Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post; and it is my turn today.  Our topic this week is to "Use Some Buttons".  We have a monthly challenge on our blog; plus challenges on our Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group as well.  December monthly Blog challenge is "Birds"; which is a fun challenge.  I love creating digis with birds on them.

I am using Ching-Chou Kuik Christmas Cuddle for my creation.  I hope you enjoy this creation.  I finally felt like creating some Christmas cards; even though I am a little behind.  LOL!  It seems to arrive so fast.
