Thanks a Bunch ...

Good morning! I'm hosting the Artbymiran Blog today.


When I saw the NEW Autumn's Memoirs I just had to create a card
with her. I love being able to use rich dark colors, and she
is perfect for those Fall Colors.

I enjoy creating and sending my cards to Operation Write Home.
That is the reason behind the sentiment that I pulled out
of my SRM Sentiment #53004 Thanks Stickers.

We would love for you to become a follower of the
Artbymiran Blog and Artbymiran FB Page, along with visiting our shop 
to see all of the wonderful images artbymiran has to offer. If you have time

 you can chat with Mi Ran and the rest of the Design Team Members.
