Love Card Using Art by Miran Selena Snow

Hello friends!  How is everyone doing? There is a lot of viruses going around. My stepson came over for Christmas and he got sick that night, gave it to my husband, and then to me a few days later and then to his mother.  This one has been a really difficult one.   Needless to say; we haven't gotten to do anything since the Tuesday after Christmas.  

My husband has been sick for 10 days today and 7 days for me.  I didn't get bad until last Friday.  I have spent a lot of time in bed; but still trying to keep up with my cards for DT.  My flu shot normally helps me stay well; but not with this virus.  Please stay away from crowds if at all possible during this virus season.  And please don't go to work or anywhere else while you are sick.  That is what causes this virus to continue to spread to others.

It is time for another fabulous Art by Miran Challenge 75 - Anything Goes.  I always love Anything Goes challenges; as we can do whatever we feel like doing. I thought about making this a Christmas card; to get a head start for the year; but decided not to.  I am using Selena Snow; which is such a fabulous image. She is so sweet to work with.  I used digi paper designed by Tracy Wray; called Winter Frost.  I love this digi paper and have used it before.

The card is colored in shades of purple; on a purple background; but I couldn't get the lighting or color correct.   I got the background correct; but then the image was the wrong color; so I gave up.  LOL!  Use your imagination to see colors of purple on purple!  It looks really pretty in person.  Although this version isn't too bad either.  LOL!

Shades of purple; but couldn't get these colors correct either.

Our current challenge is still ongoing and we would love to have you participate again. I would like to share this passage from the Bible coming from Hebrews 6:11-12 which says, "We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, so that what you hope for may be fully realized. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised." Have a blessed week.
