Thinking of You Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Monarch of the Flora & Fauna Set 1

Hello friends!  It is still raining in Southern CA; so don't believe that song that it never rains in Southern CA.  Someone turned it on; and now we can't get it to stop.  LOL!  When I first moved to Southern CA in 1998; it hardly ever rained here.  I feel like I have moved back to Florida with all this rain.  

I hope all of you are well. Try to stay out of the crowds right now.  There are several viruses going around.  My husband and I have had a bad virus since Christmas and it just keeps hanging on.  We are getting better; but we still have a cough.  

It is time for another Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration post.  This week our topic is Anything Goes.  I used another one of Ching-Chou Kuik Flora and Fauna Set 1. I am using Monarch.  I love this set of 8 images.  This is my second image out of this set; so I have 6 more to use.  They are so much fun!
