Happy Birthday Card Using Ching Chou Kuik "Summer Blooms"

Hello Friends!   How are you doing?  I hope everyone is starting to get back out and on with their lives.  I finally managed to start taking walks again; even though there are still a lot of people without masks when I go out.  

I am making all my medical appointments now after not going to any of them last year.  It feels rather odd to be out and waiting in a waiting room again.  It is very time consuming trying to catch up with all of them; and exhausting with all of this activity.  LOL!  

I actually went to Target yesterday for the first time since Feb. 2020.  Isn't it amazing to be able to go out again?  I had both of my vaccines and feel a lot safer going out now.  I have been staying home since Feb 2020.  I am so happy to get back out again.  

I saw this new Ching Chou Kuik "Summer Blooms" digital image and knew I had to color and create with her.  She is stunning.  Ching Chou Kuik does such an awesome job of creating these stunning images.  I bought another new one that I hope to color soon; but time seems to get away from me.
