rock chic

Morning Girls
I've been busy with the copics these past few days but have only one card completed :(
I seem to be enjoying the colouring more now than making the actual cards.  Still, at least I'll always have an image to hand when I need one.


image - Art by MiRan
sentiment - Sparkle n Sprinkle
copics
beads and brads from stash

Time now for a nice cuppa and a hop around blog land.  It seems an age since I've visited anyone but I aim to sort that today :)  Everything seems to be happening on Facebook and the poor old blogs get forgotten about.  It's not the same though as having some nice comments on your blog is it?
Anyway, have a great day

Dreaming of Spring

Hiya everyone
Today's card is showcasing this gorgeous girl from Miran.
I could do with sitting in the sunshine like her instead of trudging through the snow and slush we have here at the moment.  I won't mention the ice, frozen rain and icy winds.  Oh I just did lol, well you get the picture.  It's freeeeeeeeeeeeeezing!!!

Happy Birthday Art by Miran

Hiya Everyone
Long time no blog.  Christmas and New Year sure gets in the way of a girls crafting time :(
I confess to bot having picked up a copic for most of the festive period.  Shame on me eh :)

It's hard to believe that a  year ago Mi Ran began sharing her awesome images with us but yes, a year has passed very quickly and those gorgeous images just keep on coming :)

As part of the celebrations us DT girls though it would be fun to show you our first ever project as a member of Miran's fabulous team
AND a new project using the very same image !! 

Here is my first ever project using the beautiful Bashful Belinda



All carded out after Christmas I decided to do something a little bit different.  Well, for me anyway but there's a first time for everything right?



Guess who had too many bottles of wine over the Festive period?



Now the fun part for all of our amazing fans and followers.........


Beginning on January 1st through January 16th each day a team member will share their creation over on the blog and all you have to do is leave us a comment on each post.  So, that is 16 days of gorgeousness for you to comment on.

One  winner each day will WIN 3 images of your choice from the store!!
16 chances to win!!!!

Check back on 24th of January to see if you are one of the lucky winners.
Simples!!!

Happy Crafting

love in a cup

Hi everyone
Are you all sorted for the man in the red suit then?  I am almost finished and if I'm honest I can't wait for it to be all over.  Yip, bah humbug and all that :) 

So, as it's my turn to showcase over on Art by MiRan I thought I'd do something other than Christmas

This is  Love in a Cup available from Art by MiRan store 



I've kept this totally CAS.  
Coloured with copics, fussy cut, and once I'd printed the sentiment onto the card base I just stuck her right on down :)  It must be one of the quickest cards I've made in a long time.
There is still lots of time to enter our anything goes challenge too girls
and of course we'd love to see you on the  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

Thanks so much for stopping by and we hope you have a wonderful day!

Waiting for you

Morning Everyone
It is freeeeeeeezing here.  Winter has most definitely arrived.  We're off out tonight too so I am hoping it at least stays dry.  Who wants to be all dressed up in their glad rags with them hanging like a bag of washing.
Friends from all over UK, who like us visit Turkey every year are meeting up for a wee Christmas get together.  I am really looking forward to it as I've not seen most of them for months.

My card today is my second GDT spot for Sketch Saturday and they are sponsored this week by Art by MiRan  Play along and you have the chance to win three of her gorgeous digital images.  


I've only put a sentiment on the little lamp post sign as I'm not sure yet who this will go to 


papers - First Edition
poinsettia- cricut - Joys of the Season
copics
frantage - That Craft Place 

So, that's my bit of inspiration for you today. Have a smashing weekend
