Christmas Card Using Ching Chou Kuik "Wreath of Nature" with CTMH Beary Christmas Paper and

Hello friends.  I know everyone is probably super busy with the holidays coming soon.  I know I am.  I can't believe this year is coming to an end already.  The New Year is just around the corner.  I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday season and have time to spend with your family and friends.  

It is time for another Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post and our topic this week is Anything Goes.  I am sad today; because this is my last creation as a member of CCK Design Team.  I will miss everyone on the team; but I need to take time for me and focus more on my health issues.  It was a very hard decision to make.  I am sure I will still use her images; as she is one of my favorite artists. 

Be sure to join us in our December Blog challenge; which is birds.  That should be an easy one; with so many birds on her digis.  I am using Ching-Chou Kuik "Wreath of Nature".  It was a lot of fun to color.  It felt overwhelming to me in the beginning; but as I colored one type of image at a time; and then the next one; I realized it wasn't difficult at all.  When coloring; I always take it one step at a time; which make it less stressful to me.  LOL!  

I decided to create an Easel card for my last creation with CCK.  I think you can click on the picture for a larger view.
