Thinking of You card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Misty Eyes

Hello friends!   We continue to have lots of rain in Southern CA.  I don't think it is ever going to stop.  I had a rough week of not feeling well.  I was completely exhausted and hurting all over; after spending a week catching our feral cats in cages and getting them fixed.  I had to keep them in the cages for two days after their surgery before letting them out.  They were not happy about it.  

I had to color this image twice; because I caused a problem when I was almost done.  I tried to change the rouge and ruined it.  I couldn't figure out how to fix it no matter what I tried.  

Is everyone finding time to craft?  We would love for you to join us in our Ching-Chou Kuik February Blog Monthly challenge.  This month is an easy one - "Love Is All Around".  Our topic this week for our Inspiration Post is Sparkle and Shine; so I used Ching-Chou Kuik Misty Eyes.  I hope you enjoy my card.  I love these Ching-Chou Kuik digis and this one is no exception.
