Christmas Card Using ABM image with CTMH City Sidewalks Paper and Digital Cartridge

Hello friends!  Can you believe it is time to start creating Christmas cards?  I made all of mine ahead of time one year; but this year I haven't really started yet.  I am glad Mi Ran gave us this adorable image for the Art by Miran October Progressive Challenge; so we could get started on our Christmas cards.

If you haven't joined us in the past for our Progressive challenges each month; check it out. Purchase your first image at a discount, create something, join our challenge and then the following month; you will receive the next image free.  That continues every month; as long as you are creating and participating in the Art by Miran Monthly Progressive Challenges on our Facebook Group.  You do need to request it each month after the new image comes available.
