Birthday Card Using Art by Miran digi with CTMH Magical Paper Pack

Hello friends.  Is anything new happening in your life that you would like to share here? Life is never dull at my house and sometimes I would love for it to be quiet and without drama. LOL!  I  guess when you have ferrel cats; there are no dull moments.  They make me happy just to see these sweet kittens playing in my yard; but mom keeps moving them; which then makes me sad.  

It is time for another Art by Miran Progressive Challenge on Facebook; and we have such a fabulous new digi provided to us FREE from Art by Miran.  If you haven't participate in these monthly challenges; you are really missing out.  Mi Ran Jung creates a new digi each month.  All you have to do is buy the first image at a very reduced price; create something with it; enter it online on Facebook Group page and then the next month and every month after; you will be able to request the next new image free.  You do have to enter each month to get the next one free. It is such a fabulous way to build your Digi collection and Art by Miran's images are gorgeous!  

I decided to create a side step card using the July Progressive Challenge image.  Isn't she adorable?!  I created a lot of these side step cards for a while and then I started creating mostly 6 x 6 cards.  I stopped decorating the inside; because you can say it all on the outside. Plus it took too long to do the inside as well.

Named after our very own fabulous Vannessa Hasty on ABM DT.
