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 :)

Don't forget to check out the  Art by MiRan store regularly for the latest releases and of course if your a fan of rubber stamps then The Whimsy store.

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 :)

Lumber Jack

Morning Crafters
It's that time of the month where I get to host the Art by MiRan showcase blog.
Have you noticed that Miran is now drawing boys and men too?

It was the husbter's birthday last week so I took the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone.
This is Lumber Jack although I will say hubby is older, fatter and balder than this handsome fella :)

These papers are once again from Lidl.  I think I buy the shop up when they have then in stock :)
I've kept it very plain and simple, only adding a few buttons from my stash
The 'bithday' sentiment is part of the freebie papers available over on the  Art by Miran Facebook page.  Do pop over and nab them if you haven't already.

Thanks so much for stopping by

Jammin' Jay and a freebie

Morning everyone
It's freebie day over on the Art by Miran Facebook Group.

As usual Tracy has come up trumps, designing us some gorgeous Boys to Men papers and sentiments too. Oh and let's not forget the fabulous new laddies now in the Miran Etsy Store

papers - freebies and sentiment designed by Tracy Wray

I am slowly becoming a fan of the back to basics cards we are seeing everywhere just now. It's nice to showcase the images rather than hide them with too many embellishments.  This is so true of male cards don't you think?

Go grab yourself a freebie ladies.
Have a smashing weekend
