Good Morning all, I hope everyone is having a fantastic Christmas, and that Santa brought you all lots of goodies yesterday. Enjoy the rest of the festive hols and I am sure a lot of you will have lots of new crafty stash to play with in the New Year :). I will be treating myself to a new laptop as th is ones days are nearly over.... 

Today starts a new challenge over at the ArtbyMiran Challenge Blog, and as always it is an ANYTHING goes challenge. 

I have used Olivia for my card this time, such a shame when I took the pictures (many of)... the day was so gloomy I had to use a flash, and it hasnt really shown up as nice as it could have, but I did do my best. 

Papers, embelllies all from stash... finally using some of the gorge papers I have had for a long time and not wanted to use lol... as y ou do ! ... sadly no idea where from.

Copics used to colour.

Right I am now off to finish clearing up after yesterday...oh dear... thats what happens when you have one too many 'sherberts'. LOL.... Have lots of fun joining in the fun on the challenge blog.  and above all... keep warm and safe...

ArtbyMiran DT card

Good morning fellow crafters and blog hoppers :)  Today starts a new Anything Goes Challenge over at ArtbyMiran Challenge Blog

I have used Kiki for my DT card this time, another adorable image by Mi Ran. :)  

I did have an awful time trying to get a reasonable photograph of the card though, its been so drab and dreary here .... guess thats Winter here then... brrrrr.   This was the best of a LOT of snaps taken. 

I raided my 12 x 12 stash box OK, ONE of them lol.... the blue box to be exact lol.. as I haven't ventured in there for a long time... so pleased I did.. as had forgotten just how many gorge papers I have... might have to take a look at the other 'few' boxes now :)  So  needless to say, I have no idea where I got the papers from.

I have also made a pair of earrings and carefully attached to the flower, Kiki has been coloured with copics, and the ticket, I hand made from a computer generated sentiment.  Just went around the edges with a ruler and brown copic pen.  (yes I do have a ticket die ....  I just like to make things a bit more difficult for myself lol)

So, please join in the fun with our fortnightly challenge... and make sure you check out the other DT girlies cards... all awesome as ever. :)
