Love Card Using Art by Miran September Progressive Facebook Challenge Image

Hello friends!  How is your summer?  It is still very hot in Southern CA.  I think it is cooling off in other places; but not so much here.  I have been very busy trying to get all of my DT cards created; so we can go on vacation.  I am really looking forward to this vacation.  We haven't been on a real vacation for several years; because we have been visiting family instead.  

It's time for another fabulous Art by Miran Facebook Progressive Challenge.  Wait till you see this gorgeous image!  She is so fantastic!  I had so much fun coloring her and making her into a card.  I had to use some new dies with her; and decided to do something different by adding a different color for the top edge.  

If you have never joined in our Progressive Challenge; be sure to click the link above the picture and join the fun.  Join the Facebook Art by Miran group, purchase the first image for a discounted price, create something and enter it into our challenge.  Then, the next month's image will be FREE!  You can't beat that!  It is a fabulous way to build your selection of Art by Miran images.  If you created one for August, be sure to request your September image for FREE. See the post at the top of the Art by Miran Facebook Group.

As You Like It Challenge - Favorite Song or Film and Why?  I love the song "I Will Always Love You' By Whitney Houston.  It touches something inside of me that I can't explain.  The Words are awesome and she sings it so well.  My favorite movie is "Sleepless In Seattle" which is also about love.  I guess I am a romantic at heart.  I love anything that speaks of love.  It is the greatest gift that anyone could ever give you.

Art by Miran - Goddess Anthea
