Suzie Snowflake

It's my turn to host the Art by MiRan showcase blog today.
Sticking with the winter theme I've used the lovely  Suzie Snowflake for my card
I decided to keep this one CAS, just for a wee change :)  It's nice now and again to leave all the embellishments off,
So, I coloured her up with copics, added a wee bit of frantage then mounted her onto a piece of blue card and then straight onto the card base.  Job done!


Don't forget to check out the  Art by MiRan store  for lots more lovely girls too.  There have been some gorgeous new Christmas girls released recently :)

Hi Everyone
My neighbours' daughter had a lovely little lad the other day so I knocked this up very, very quickly.

I just loved this image, especially the big cheesey grin.  How cute is he?  
It's busy, busy here at the moment so I'm off again to get the copics out

beary sweet

Hello girls :) It's my turn to host Art by MiRan  blog an this month we are showcasing some autumn love.  I adore the autumn, not quite as much as summertime but I do love watching the trees changing colour and the crisp mornings we have here in Scotland

I've used the lovely Beary Sweet for my card.  I wouldn't mind one of those hats myself, cute isn't it, oh and the jacket is not too bad either :)

A Gift for You

Well hello there
It seems like ages since I've posted, and it is.  We have just returned from a much needed holiday to our little peace of heaven in Turkey.  The weather was very kind to us for this time of year with wall to wall sunshine for the biggest part of our stay.  It will be a long winter till our next visit.

Anyway, today is new release day for Julia Spiri and I got this little cutie patootie to work with

I told you he was cute :)

Teddy and Gift - Julia Spiri Etsy

So, that's my first card out of the way since I got back,  Does anyone else find it difficult to get back into the swing of things when they've been away?.  I think my mojo stays on holiday to spite me

Happy Crafting ladies :)
