Thinking of You/Thank You Card Using Art by Miran With Love Lucy digi

Hello friends!  How is everyone?  What have you been up to?  Are you finding time to craft?  I know this is the busiest season of the year with Christmas coming; and many of you are shopping and getting ready for the big day.   I haven't taken the time to check how many Christmas cards I have created.  I know I need to do that; but there just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day. 

It is time for another Art by Miran December Progressive Challenge.  We have this adorable ABM "With Love Lucy" image for those of you who are entering a creation every month.   If you are new to our challenge; click on Art by Miran Facebook group for more information; found at the top of the discussion.  All you have to do is purchase the first one at a very discounted rate, color, create something and enter on the Facebook group page.  The following month you will receive the image free; upon request.   

I wanted to create a Clean and Simple Thank you card; so this is what I created. I hope you enjoy it.

Sympathy Card Using Art by Miran Valentina

Hello friends!  I hope everyone is doing well.  It has finally cooled down a little here in Southern CA.  I love Fall weather.  We actually had rain on Sunday.  It was amazing!  When I lived in Florida, it rained almost every day; so I got really tired of it; but I love it when it rains now.  We seldom get much of it; so it is a treat to me.  Isn't it funny how our perceptions can change about things over the years?

My granddaughters grandpa passed away last week; so it has been a sad time for me, my daughter, granddaughter and their families.  Bobby was a wonderful man and loved by many.  It is so hard when we lose someone.  I know that Jason, his son and Barbara, his wife are so lost  without him.  I am very grateful that my daughter, Jenny and granddaughter, Gabrielle and her son, Bryr were able to spend over a week with him in Florida before his passing.  He was so happy to see them and to play with that awesome great grandson.  We will all miss him.  

I have been creating Sympathy cards this past week.  I find them hard to create for me.  I know there is a typical Sympathy card that most people create; but I decided that I needed to create something beautiful and cheerful for my Sympathy cards; just like I do for birthdays, etc.  

It's time for another Art by Miran Challenge 72 - Anything Goes.  I have chosen this gorgeous image - Valentina.  I thought this image would be an excellent choice for my granddaughter.  We would love to see your entries in our challenge. I can't wait to see what you create.

Thinking Of You Cards Using CTMH Swan Lake Paper Pack

Hello friends!  How is everyone doing?  I hope you are having a fabulous year so far and enjoying time to craft.  Crafting is my sanity.  I don't really know what I would do without it.  LOL!


I wanted to show you how quick and easy card making can be when using some of the two Picture My Life (PML) pages of paper that comes with all of our regular paper packs.  I trimmed this PML card to fit an A2 size card; added a sentiment and ribbon; gluing it to CTMH Poppy Cardstock.  I didn't color this first one; but I did color the second one.  I wanted to see which one I preferred.  I actually like both of them.  Which one do you like the best?  Colored or not colored?  Thanks so much for your opinion.
