Thank You Card Using Aurora Wings Crocus Sprite

Hello friends.  How is everyone doing?  I think Southern CA is going to have a few days without rain.  Can you believe that?  LOL!  

I have been having fun reorganizing and making room for my fabulous Workspace Wonder organizational pieces from Close To My Heart.  I didn't think I could find room for them; since the pictures all show them put together with the Paper trays.  I realized I could move the paper trays to a different location (as they are 12 x 12); but keep all the other pieces on my desk.  

The large tray is my base and it is only 8 inches from the back on my work table. It has worked out great!  I have one complete set; then several from another purchase; plus I am getting ready to buy another set.  It is amazing to have everything I want right in front of me on my crafting table in a nice organized set; rather than the assorted plastic containers I had previously.  My crafting table feels so much cleaner and more organized.  

I think it helped my creating Mojo; because I seem to have a lot of it now; where before I felt I had lost it.  I just bought 13 new digis from Aurora Wings; as she has a 30% off sale; which ends tonight.  I own  many of Mitzi's digis; but just haven't had the time to create with them.  

I had to share this one right now.  I am using Aurora Wings Crocus Sprite.  I think she is the sweetest little thing ever!  The link is for the PNG version; but there is also a JPEG version.  I try to get PNG; so that I can use my print and cut feature on my Cricut Explore; and use it with digi papers if I want to.

Path of Positivity Challenge - Is Expression of Love.  This card is saying Thank you and expressing to someone that I care and appreciate them for being so kind.

Art by Miran Favorites - Saying Goodbye to ABM Facebook Group and Blog

Hello friends.  I wanted to do one last walk down memory lane; before my time ends with Art by Miran Design team.  I thought it would be fun to show some of my favorites from the past year; while on the Design team.  

I hope you enjoy viewing my Art by Miran cards; as I show you some of my favorites.  I had a hard time narrowing it down to these few.  I was trying to get it down to five; but just couldn't.  LOL!  

The Art by Miran Store will remain open and so will the official Art By Miran Facebook page. Be sure to visit her store for more of her gorgeous creations; and continue to follow Mi Ran Jung on her official Facebook page.

Birthday card Using Imagine That Digis Ted and Trudy's Wagon

Hello friends.  What is going on in your area?  I have been creating cards and trying to stay inside out of the rain as much as possible.  We just can't seem to get the rain to stop; now that it has finally started here in Southern CA.

Love/All occasion Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Gentle As Breeze

Hello friends!  How are you?  Can you believe we are over half way through February already?  Where does the time go?  

It is time for another Inspirational Post for Ching-Chou Kuik; and we were given Anything Goes as our challenge for the week.  I decided to use a new image called "Gentle As A Breeze".  I fell in love with this image the minute I saw it.  Doesn't she look like a sweet and gentle woman?  You can click on the picture if you need to see a closer view.


There is also an additional coloring contest at Kit and Clowder Facebook group; sponsored by Ching-Chou Kuik using this digi; so be sure to check it out as well. The digi is half priced right now; so click here to get yours today.  Ching-Chou Kuik Gentle As Breeze.

We would love to have you enter our Ching-Chou Kuik February Monthly Challenge and the topic is "Love Is All Around".  That should be an easy one.  It will give you another opportunity for a chance to win more of Ching-Chou Kuik's awesome digis.  

Path of Positivity Challenge - Expression of Love.  I love to create cards and use sentiments; as well as the image to portray what I am trying to express.  This could be for a family member or friend; letting them know how awesome they are and the heart key; symbolizes that they have a key to my heart or it could symbolize the love I have for them.
