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. :)

The new Anything goes Challenge starts today... hope that lots of you join in the fun again..  

I wanted to step away from Christmas cards for a while (even thou I still have a few more to make), and wanted to go back to all girly... 

I have used Fairy Lily, another little stunner I think you will agree.

For this card I have used various papers from my scrap stash box, also a shaped card blank front, nestability circle dies, and copics to colour.  ooh and obviously being a fairy, you have to use some fairy dust (glamour dust) lol.. for her wings.

Make sure you check out the rest of the DT cards, as always, they h ave done MiRan proud using her gorge images and made some stunning creations.

Hope you are all getting organised for Christmas.. (I'm not lol) .
