Mini Pocket Letter Using Ching Chou Kuik Sweet Poodle, Cricut Artbooking and Cricut Artiste Cartriges

Hello friends.   How is everyone doing?  It has been super hot here.  I will be really happy when it cools down.  I don't do well with hot weather.  

Our precious 4 month old feral kitten went missing on Thursday, this week.  We saw him on Wed night around 9 pm.  He never showed up on Thursday.  He normally stays in our yard or the neighbors yard; but he hasn't been back since then.  I have posted on several sites to see if he has been seen anywhere in our neighborhood; but so far there have been no sightings. We have heard there are a lot of coyotes at night; so I am afraid that is what happened to him. He was just starting to get use to us; allowing us to finally pet him after 4 months.  His name is Miya.  We didn't know he was a male when we named him; but I don't think he cared what we called him.  We are so sad about losing him.  He is the first feral kitten from 3 sets of kittens; that has allowed us to get close to him.  

It is time for another Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post, with Anything Goes as the topic.  I created this adorable Pocket letter and am happy to finally be able to share it with you.  I have been having a lot of fun creating Mini Pocket Letters.  I love them.  They are so much fun to create!  I hope you enjoy this Mini Pocket letter.  I used this precious little poodle digi. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it and had to have it to color.
