Thank You Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "New Leaves"

Hello friends.  How is everyone?  It has cooled down in Southern CA; which I am so grateful.  I love the Spring and Fall.  I do not like the hot weather; which we have had a lot of this year.  

We were on vacation in Florida for the last two weeks of October, visiting with family.  It was a lot cooler there than I expected; but not really cold.  I was grateful that we didn't have any storms or hurricanes while were there.  We were staying at Destin, FL on the beach; so we would have been sitting ducks with water surrounding us.  My phone didn't want to work while we were there; which I think was due to all the water around us.  

It is good to be back home and I am more than ready to create with Ching-Chou Kuik images.  I took the month of October off; except for posting a few of the creations I had already finished before I took time off.  I really needed the break; more for my mental health than anything else.  I needed some down time from creating every week.

I have created a card with a Winter scene for our Ching-Chou Kuik November Monthly Blog challenge.  We would love for you to join us.  You have an option of Christmas or Winter.  I have been wanting to use this digi for a long time.  It is Ching-Chou Kuik "New Leaves".  It looks like winter to me; right before Spring starts.
