...a letter for Santa

Good morning  everyone :)
It's my turn to host the Artbymiran blog this morning and what a cutie I have to show you.

This gorgeous girlie  ' A Letter to Santa' was released over on  Whimsy Stamps earlier in the month.





All wrapped up and ready to post her letter of to Santa :)
Coloured up with copics and left plain and simple to show her off.  

Don't forget there are gorgeous, gorgeous images being added to the Art by MiRan  shop  all the time so do pop over and have a browse :)
There is also an Art by Miran Facebook page where we have monthly challenges and lots of crafty chatter. Why not pop over and have a natter with Miran and the DT girls. 

Happy Crafting

Hiya Girls

I'm showcasing over on Art by MiRan this morning with this cutie Autumn Leaves .
Excuse the colour work.  I made a right pigs ear of her hair but seeing as I only got it finished last night I just didn't have time to redo it.  So, just imagine it's fandabie dozie lol



Available  in the shop now.  Go on, spend a penny or three :)

Right, I'm off for a quick shower then a quick visit to my parents and strict instructions for DD who will be home that my house better be clean for my return.  She is one mucky pup.

Cookies for you

Hiya Everyone
Hope your all fit and well and of course getting some crafting time in.
I've been super busy recently so have hardly had a minute to myself let alone hop around you all.  Hopefully I'll get the chance later this afternoon whilst enjoying me cuppa.
I've another commissioned card to showcase today.  The lady wanted a girl scout for her granddaughters birthday.  This little cutie from The Paper Shelter fitted the bill nicely.


The papers are from Lidl.  Have any of you tried them?  They are fabulous quality.  Along the lines of First Edition.  Honestly they are that good.  The only negative is that they don't have a whole lot of the same colourways in the pads but they are 12x12 so lots for very little money compared to the price we normally pay from some of the other companies.
I'd best get on, happy crafting
