Sympathy Card Using CTMH Magical Paper and Art by Miran Sunflower Sara

Hello friends!  How is your summer going?  It is still very hot in Southern CA.  I would love to be able to go outside and walk or ride my bike; but the heat makes me sick.  I wish there was a place to live that had the perfect climate all year long.  Maybe I need to do some research to find that place.  LOL!  

It is time for another fabulous Art by Miran Facebook Anything Goes Challenge; with an option for "Back To School or School Colors".  I am not sure which school has these colors; but there is one for sure.  LOL!  Isn't this a precious image?  I fell in love with her as soon as I saw it.  She looks so happy and cheerful, and proud of herself for picking that flower.  LOL!

I rarely use red; but this one called to me.  The paper pack is Close To My Heart Magical; which is retiring August 31st.  If you want it; get it right away.  Check the retiring products here and the clearance items here.  

As You Like It Challenge - I like square 6 x 6 sized cards the best; because they seem to give me more room to work with.  They also work better for challenges when you link them. Your entire card shows when linking; rather than a small part of it.  LOL!

Birthday Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Heart of Faith and CTMH New Adventure Fundamentals

Hello friends!  How are you doing?  I hope everyone is having a great summer.  I am having some challenges with trying to follow a very strict diet.  I love to eat; so this has been a challenge for me.  I am eating Gluten free, Dairy free, no grains, no legumes, basically meat and a few select vegetables and fruits.  I am sure it will be worth it if I can get some relief from the pain and bloating I am having.  


I am back again to share another card I created using the fabulous Ching-Chou Kuik Heart of Faith.  Isn't she gorgeous?!  I own most of Ching-Chou Kuik images and haven't had time to create with them like I want to do.  I am part of her DT and now I get to use them. Yay! I am very excited to be part of this wonderful team and to be able to create with her gorgeous images.  

Be sure to join us this month for the August monthly challenge - Ching-Chou Kuik "Let's go neutral".  We would love to see your fabulous creations.  If you have never entered a challenge; create something and just try it.  If you don't know how to enter; please let me know and I would be glad to give you instructions.
