Thinking of You/Thank You Card Using Art by Miran With Love Lucy digi

Hello friends!  How is everyone?  What have you been up to?  Are you finding time to craft?  I know this is the busiest season of the year with Christmas coming; and many of you are shopping and getting ready for the big day.   I haven't taken the time to check how many Christmas cards I have created.  I know I need to do that; but there just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day. 

It is time for another Art by Miran December Progressive Challenge.  We have this adorable ABM "With Love Lucy" image for those of you who are entering a creation every month.   If you are new to our challenge; click on Art by Miran Facebook group for more information; found at the top of the discussion.  All you have to do is purchase the first one at a very discounted rate, color, create something and enter on the Facebook group page.  The following month you will receive the image free; upon request.   

I wanted to create a Clean and Simple Thank you card; so this is what I created. I hope you enjoy it.
