Birthday card Using Imagine That Digis Ted and Trudy's Wagon

Hello friends.  What is going on in your area?  I have been creating cards and trying to stay inside out of the rain as much as possible.  We just can't seem to get the rain to stop; now that it has finally started here in Southern CA.  

I decided to create a birthday card for my friend who is a cow farmer; and more. I thought he would get a kick out of this one.  I used Imagine That Digis by Kris Ted and Trudy's Wagon.  It is one of my favorite digi sets; which includes colored versions; black and white versions; plus sentiments.  I also used the digi paper from a couple different sets of Imagine That Digis by Kris.  She is so artistic and I love her creations.  To enter her challenge; click here.

Love/All occasion Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Gentle As Breeze

Hello friends!  How are you?  Can you believe we are over half way through February already?  Where does the time go?  

It is time for another Inspirational Post for Ching-Chou Kuik; and we were given Anything Goes as our challenge for the week.  I decided to use a new image called "Gentle As A Breeze".  I fell in love with this image the minute I saw it.  Doesn't she look like a sweet and gentle woman?  You can click on the picture if you need to see a closer view.


There is also an additional coloring contest at Kit and Clowder Facebook group; sponsored by Ching-Chou Kuik using this digi; so be sure to check it out as well. The digi is half priced right now; so click here to get yours today.  Ching-Chou Kuik Gentle As Breeze.

We would love to have you enter our Ching-Chou Kuik February Monthly Challenge and the topic is "Love Is All Around".  That should be an easy one.  It will give you another opportunity for a chance to win more of Ching-Chou Kuik's awesome digis.  

Path of Positivity Challenge - Expression of Love.  I love to create cards and use sentiments; as well as the image to portray what I am trying to express.  This could be for a family member or friend; letting them know how awesome they are and the heart key; symbolizes that they have a key to my heart or it could symbolize the love I have for them.

Love Card Using Art by Miran "The Magic Of Love"

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I can't believe it is already February; which is half over.  Time fly's so fast; doesn't it?  

It is with a sad heart that I write this last post as a Design team member for Art by Miran.  Mi Ran is closing her Facebook group and her website; but keeping her Etsy shop open; as well as her Art by Miran Facebook page.  She has decided to pursue other artistic adventures at this time.  Be sure to continue to visit her shop; as she has a lot of fabulous digis available.  I wish her well in her new artistic adventures and lots of luck.   I am grateful for the opportunity I had; to be part of her fabulous DT for the past year.  I love this team; and have loved every minute of it.   I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to create with so many of her fabulous digis; every month; for the past year.   

It was a challenge to choose which digi to use for this last post.  I dedicate this card to Mi Ran and truly hope she continues to use her artistic talents.  I chose Art by Miran "The Magic Of Love"; which says it all.  Mi Ran has always created such loving digis and you can tell by looking at them; how much she loved what she was creating.  I believe "The Magic Of Love never ends" as my card says.  I hope she truly enjoys the next chapter of her artistic life; and makes wonderful new memories for herself and others; as she has done for all of us on her Design Team.  

Path of Positivity Challenge - An Expression of Love - As stated above; I believe that "The Magic of Love never ends" and each gift of love that we give; continues that love.  When we give love to someone; that person feels good and passes that love to another person; who then passes it on to another and another.  I hope each of you will take the time to give love to another person; and start this precious gift of love around the world.
