Be Happy Love Card Using Art by Miran digi for February Progressive Challenge

Hello friends. I hope everyone is doing well and finding time to craft.  I try to do a little each day; but sometimes it isn't possible.  We have had really hot weather, in the upper 80's; with powerful Santa Ana winds; which is really causing my husband and I major problems.  I rarely react to them like I have this year.  We are supposed to have in the 90's by Monday. Can you believe this crazy weather?  I heard some places are super cold on the East coast.  

I am back again with another beautiful card for Art by Miran February Progressive Challenge.  If you haven't been playing along in this fabulous challenge each month; you are really missing out.  Visit our Facebook group; join if you haven't already; follow the instructions to get your first image.  Once you purchase the first image at a discounted price, then you get the Art by Miran image for the next progressive challenge free.  It is a wonderful way to collect a lot of fabulous Art by Miran images.  I have been doing this for a long time and really look forward to seeing what her next wonderful creation will be.
