Christmas in July

Hiya everyone

I forgot all about it being my  my turn to host the Artbymiran blog today. Shame on me eh
So, this was put together in an hour this afternoon and I'm afraid it shows :(

                 This is  Ruby and her present, cute as a wee button isn't she?
I thought since I've seen so many gorgeous Christmas cards out there in blogland recently that I'd join the fun and get mine started too                         

 You'll find her and lots more loveliness over at the  Art by MiRan store 
papers - Creativity by Crystal
sentiment - Scrapalicious

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
 Have a great old crafty evening

feeling blue...

Hiya girls
It's quite a nice one here today.  Just for a change we have no rain.  I won't hold my breath though as no doubt those pesky droplets will appear at some point today

It's that time of the month where I get to  host the Artbymiran showcase blog.

                                    Our theme for the month is 'cool colours' so I got to use one of my favourite ever                   colours, turquoise.  Even her hair got the blue treatment :)

flowers -  Wild Orchid Crafts and some I bought on holiday
lace and gems - stash

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 AND keep a look out for a lovely surprise later in the month too :)

Bobby Beats...

Hiya everyone
Hope your well and having better weather than we are here in Scotland.  It's freezing to say the least.  I'm (bleep) sick of it now.  Mid June and we need a jumper and the central heating on :(
Anyway, I'll stop moaning and get onto me card for the day.
 Art by MiRan   has a new release happening right now and if I say they are all gorgeous that is an understatement.  Honestly, go look but be prepared to spend a penny or three.

Hopefully I've inspired you, even a just a little :)  
Enjoy what's left of your weekend girls
