All Occasion Card Using Cricut You Are Here Cartridge with CCK Gentleness image

Hello friends.  How is everyone?  I hope this finds you well and enjoying the weather; wherever you are.  It has continued to be very hot here; but the temperatures are supposed to be a little cooler today.  I hope that is true.  You know many times the weatherman tells you it will be cooler; but it ends up being hotter.  I know it must be very hard to predict the weather.  LOL!  

I haven't been able to create very much the past couple weeks; due to severe pain. I can never really figure out what is causing it when it hits me like this; so I just have to suffer through it until it decides to go ease up.  

It is my turn to share my Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post with you.  I am using Ching-Chou Kuik "Gentleness" on my card today.  Our topic is to "use a color you dislike/don't use very often."  I love all colors; and don't have one that I don't like (that I know of); so I am using brown/golds that I rarely use.  You know most of my cards are purples, pinks, blues, greens, yellows and some reds. I really do love these fall colors.  

You still have time to join us in our Ching-Chou Kuik August challenge; which is "4 Legged Friends".  You will have a chance to win gorgeous images created by Ching-Chou Kuik.
