Grateful card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Squirrel and Toadstool with Cricut Artbooking Cartridge

Good morning!  I hope all of you are enjoying the gorgeous fall weather.  I know some have hot weather and some of you have very cold weather; but it has been really nice in Southern CA.

Please take the time to visit our Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge Blog.  Our DT inspiration post this week is Anything Goes; so I have chosen to use the adorable image "Squirrel and Toadstool".  I love the CTMH September Stamp of the Month; but I am a little late in using it.  Both the outside and inside sentiments are from that stamp set; which is no longer available.

Don't forget to join our October Blog Challenge - Halloween/Something Spooky. Everyone who enters this month will receive a free image from Ching-Chou Kuik. We are celebrating CCK 2nd anniversary of our Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge Blog.
