About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.

Art by Miran facebook progressive challenge

Each month if you make a card for the Art by Miran progressive challenge you can request the free image for the next challenge.  If you haven't already joined in you can buy this month's image, make a card for the challenge and then you can request next month's free

I embossed yellow card with Cuttlebug daisies.  Printed Lacy Sunshine digi stamp onto Pininkie circle die cut and coloured her with markers and glitter pens and layered on top.  Stamped Happy birthday onto yellow card and punched with oval punch.  Layered onto purple card punched with scalloped oval punch.  Added punched flowers and butterflies.  Added all onto purple card.
