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.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Art by Miran Facebook progressive freebie challenge

Each month Art by Miran gives a free digi stamp on the facebook group to join in the progressive freebie challenge.

If you make a project with the stamp you can request the next month's image free.  If you haven't already joined in you can buy this month's digi at a reduced price, make a project for the challenge and then you can request next month's free.
I have used papers from Lozzy's Merry Christmas paper set and Christmas paper set.  Have layered the free Art by Miran stamp digi girl 319 Winter Alyssa onto the papers and coloured her with Copic markers.  Added purple twine.

I would also like to add this card to the following:

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything Christmas
