just a little fairy

Hello everyone
It's a scheduled post from me this week as I am off on me jollies to our little place in Turkey.  I am more than ready for some sunshine and a couple of weeks of doing not a lot:)

This is one of Miran's newest girls.  Isn't she a cutie?

Thanks for popping in.  Have a good old crafty day

It's that time of the month where I get to showcase one of Miran's gorgeous girls.
I am loving this one DT malarky.  No pressure, no deadlines and no loads of cards to make which end up laying gathering dust.
What about this weather too?  Isn't it fabulous to get up in the morning and it's bright blue skies instead of the usual dull grey morning that usually greets you.  Bring it on :)

papers and sentiment - freebie on our Art by Miran - facebook group by Tracy Wray
coloured with copics

I love all the CAS cards I keep seeing around so decided to give it a go.  
I added the paper into my graphics programme, layered on the sentiment and the image then printed it onto my copic paper so I could colour her.
I love how she turned out.
Happy Crafting girls, have a smashing weekend

sitting pretty

It's  my turn to host the Artbymiran blog today .  
This is this months  image if you take part in our progressive challenges over on the Facebook Group.

If you don't already know how it works, let me quickly explain.
Basically you buy her this month.  If you make a card or some other project and show us over on the Facebook Group you will get next months image free, and so it goes on.  A freebie every month so long as you take part.  Cool eh?

Morning Crafters :)

It's that time of the month where it's my turn to host the Art by MiRan blog.
It's one of the only time I use my blog now unfortunately.  Everything seems to happen on Facebook now doesn't it?

Exactly what I am doing at the moment.  It's still pretty cool and wet here in Scotland.  Not that it's ever much else here :)

Get Well Soon

Hello there
Long time no blog again.  
I just never seem to have the time now to keep this updated.   Family and life in general is slowly taking my hobby from me :(
Anyway, today it's my turn to host the Art by MiRan showcase blog and I've actually made my first ever bow card.  I bought the template from Sandra months ago but it's only now I've put one together

image -  Flower Shower
card template - Sandra's Scrap Shop
papers - Lidl
sentiment - Sparkle n Sprinkle
 Floral Flourish Butterfly
flowers from stash
coloured with copics

I must say, this was super easy to put together and certainly won't be my last bow card.  They really are very striking.  Now I just need to figure out some box measurements and I'll be sorted :)
Thanks for stopping by
