Thank You card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Aloha Lady with CTMH Postcard Perfect Paper Pack

Hello friends!  I hope everyone is staying cool.  I know there has been a heat wave here in Southern CA and we had 117 degrees last Friday, 115 on Saturday and still over 100 each day right now.  I remember when I moved out here in 1998 that it was always cooler (70's and 80's) in this area; but the temperatures have continued to increase over the years and breaking records every year.   

I don't seem to have enough time to craft; and it takes me a week or longer for each of my cards.  My life feels like it is on a treadmill all the time or roller coaster.  I hope it isn't that way for everyone; but maybe it is.

Pop over to Kit and Clowder Facebook page for their 20 day celebration.   There are lots of prizes from many vendors.  Have fun! 

I have a new Facebook VIP Group and would love to have you join me.  Just click on the bold words and click Join.   It is a place to share ideas, your creations and more.  I can't wait to see you there.  I also have discounted CTMH stamp sets on there as well. Check under Photos.

I created a Thank you card using Ching-Chou Kuik Aloha Lady.  I love this image; but had not found the time to create with it.  My die at the bottom should have been with a brighter color; but I wanted it to match the top border of butterflies; which is created with a paper that has darker to lighter colors on it.  So, it isn't your computer making it look lighter on the right side.  LOL!  

I had to use this gorgeous CTMH Perfect Postcard Paper, CC5181.  I just bought a second pack of it; because CTMH brought it back and it is while supplies last.  See the link below under Supplies.  The dark paper behind the card makes it look a little darker than it is; but this is the best I could do.  Sorry.


                                                Ching-Chou Kuik Aloha Lady    


                                           With White Background
The butterflies are darker than this photo.  They are shaded starting with darker color on left going to a lighter blue green on right.

  2. Beautiful work Gloria! I think life must be hectic for everyone and it is such a shame that we lose our crafting time. We have been quite warm here in FL too, not so hot in degrees but the high humidity makes it feel that way.
