Love Card Using Art by Miran "The Magic Of Love"

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I can't believe it is already February; which is half over.  Time fly's so fast; doesn't it?  

It is with a sad heart that I write this last post as a Design team member for Art by Miran.  Mi Ran is closing her Facebook group and her website; but keeping her Etsy shop open; as well as her Art by Miran Facebook page.  She has decided to pursue other artistic adventures at this time.  Be sure to continue to visit her shop; as she has a lot of fabulous digis available.  I wish her well in her new artistic adventures and lots of luck.   I am grateful for the opportunity I had; to be part of her fabulous DT for the past year.  I love this team; and have loved every minute of it.   I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to create with so many of her fabulous digis; every month; for the past year.   

It was a challenge to choose which digi to use for this last post.  I dedicate this card to Mi Ran and truly hope she continues to use her artistic talents.  I chose Art by Miran "The Magic Of Love"; which says it all.  Mi Ran has always created such loving digis and you can tell by looking at them; how much she loved what she was creating.  I believe "The Magic Of Love never ends" as my card says.  I hope she truly enjoys the next chapter of her artistic life; and makes wonderful new memories for herself and others; as she has done for all of us on her Design Team.  

Path of Positivity Challenge - An Expression of Love - As stated above; I believe that "The Magic of Love never ends" and each gift of love that we give; continues that love.  When we give love to someone; that person feels good and passes that love to another person; who then passes it on to another and another.  I hope each of you will take the time to give love to another person; and start this precious gift of love around the world.
