Thinking Of You Card Using Art by Miran Angelica and Cricut Artiste Cartridge

Hello friends.  Happy New Year!  I hope everyone is starting out the New Year feeling great!  It is a brand New Year, with a new start.  Let's be grateful for our lives, our families, our blessings, the health we currently have; even if it isn't what we want for the New Year!  

You still have time for the Art By Miran Progressive Challenge.  It ends January 14, 2016.  If you are new and don't have the current image; just pop over to the Facebook group and you can buy it at a discount rate.  Create your card; enter into the challenge and you will earn the next month's image free.  Be sure to read the rules of the challenge.  You will need to request the new image, when it becomes available.   The email address is always there with the post from Vannessa for the new challenge.  

December Progressive Challenge image is Art By Miran Angelica and she is absolutely gorgeous!  I couldn't find time during the last two weeks of Dec; but I finished her before it ended.  Yay!

  30. Oh, so beautiful.♥
    But it seems like you've forgotten to link to us at Card and Scrap.
    Hugs Line.

    1. I did link; it is No. 4 and now I have linked again, LOL! It is also number 53. If you want to remove #3 and #53; that would be fine. No. 3 was accidentally linked to your own challenge. I am not sure what happened to that one. So sorry. I am usually very careful; but it must have given me an error message; so I did it again. Thanks for letting me know. Hugs.

    2. Good morning. :-) Then we will try to fix this during the day.
      Still a lovely card though. ♥
