Love/All occasion Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Gentle As Breeze

Hello friends!  How are you?  Can you believe we are over half way through February already?  Where does the time go?  

It is time for another Inspirational Post for Ching-Chou Kuik; and we were given Anything Goes as our challenge for the week.  I decided to use a new image called "Gentle As A Breeze".  I fell in love with this image the minute I saw it.  Doesn't she look like a sweet and gentle woman?  You can click on the picture if you need to see a closer view.

There is also an additional coloring contest at Kit and Clowder Facebook group; sponsored by Ching-Chou Kuik using this digi; so be sure to check it out as well. The digi is half priced right now; so click here to get yours today.  Ching-Chou Kuik Gentle As Breeze.

We would love to have you enter our Ching-Chou Kuik February Monthly Challenge and the topic is "Love Is All Around".  That should be an easy one.  It will give you another opportunity for a chance to win more of Ching-Chou Kuik's awesome digis.  

Path of Positivity Challenge - Expression of Love.  I love to create cards and use sentiments; as well as the image to portray what I am trying to express.  This could be for a family member or friend; letting them know how awesome they are and the heart key; symbolizes that they have a key to my heart or it could symbolize the love I have for them.
