Art by Miran Challenge

Hi there,

I am super late with my post as it has been mad here lately but better late than ever. I have used last months fab progressive challenge image for my card as I missed out on using her earlier and she is too spunky to not use. My 11 year old daughter loved her so I think I will be using her often for her friends.

Here she is;
This awesome image is called Sweet Sally and you can find her here. I thought I would keep her simple this time as I really liked this piece of paper and colour combo. It also gave me a chance to have a bit of fun with a doodled border, I forgot how they make the image jump out.

I hope you will join us this time at the Art by Miran Challenge blog and also if you want to check out this months beautiful Progressive Challenge image head to the Art by Miran Facebook group.

Happy crafting everyone.
Cheers Nicole

Art By Miran Challenge 55

Hi there,

I hope you are all well and are looking after yourselves. The image I chose for challenge 55 has been sitting on my desk for some time now. I look at her all the time quietly procrastinating because she is so pretty that I want her to look fabulous. Well I finally got the courage to colour her or perhaps maybe I just forced myself. Anyway this is Shaylee and here is my first attempt at her. I am quite pleased but I definitely will be having another go at her.

Here she is;
I hope you like her. I feel happy that I challenged myself, she took a bit longer than expected however I'm stoked that I finally finished her. I hope you all have a moment like this sometime soon and challenge yourself. Drop on by the challenge blog and show us what you have been creating.

Cheers Nicole

Art by Miran Challenge 51

Hi there,

How are you all today. I hope you are surviving the weather, we are about to have a heat wave here so it is hot, hot, hot. I am nursing a dislocated thumb at the moment so it is making it quite difficult to colour. Lucky I finished my Art by Miran DT card before I hurt it, phew.

For this card I have used last months fabulous Progressive challenge image. I thought she was so cute and perfect for Valentines Day which is creeping up shortly. Her name is Angelica and if you didn't get her before you can find her here. Have you joined in this months Progressive Challenge yet? It's not too late, head to the Facebook page to find out more.

Here is my DT card for Challenge 51;

I have gone for a simple design this time with one of my favourite colour schemes. She was so fun to colour, I hope you managed to get her, if not, head to the shop to snap her up and have a play.
I hope to see you soon over on the Challenge Blog.

Happy crafting
Cheers Nicole

Art By Miran Challenge 50

Hi Beautiful People,

I have another pretty image to share with you today for Challenge 50 on the Art by Miran Challenge blog. I chose this gorgeous girl Gina because she just looked so fun and free and enjoying life. I love her. I also got to use some new papers that I got in the post Christmas sales, one of 11 pads I bought, he he. Such fun I have been having.

Here she is;

I have used MME papers and a fab sentiment from fellow teamy Tracy Wray, she has the best sentiments on her blog. Have you checked out her digital papers yet? Head over to the Art by Miran Facebook group to check them out. I have used a few of my go to colour blends for this card but stay tuned I have been shopping so there will be some experimenting soon, can't wait for them to arrive.

Thanks for dropping by today, happy crafting.
Cheers Nicole

Art By Miran Challenge 49

Hi there,

How are you all? I hope you had a lovely Christmas/New Year break. I had planned to do plenty of crafting however the family had other ideas, good family time though. I did manage to fit in one card over the break but I can't believe how long it took to make, I guess I procrastinate when I have lots of time.

Here it is;

I rather like this lovely lady, her name is Lily and you can find her here. For the past year I decided to try and use all my papers without buying any more. That is what I did with this card. Well I seemed to have gotten over that for 2016, I bought 14 new paper pads on sale, whoops. Now I have no idea where to start, I have so much to choose from. Oh well, it will make me get in there and craft.

I hope you will all manage to fit in some crafty time soon and join us for Art By Miran Challenge 49.
Happy crafting

Cheers Nicole

Art by Miran Challenge 45

Hi everyone,

What weather we have had here lately. So hot and it is only November. I hope we are not in for a super hot Summer as that does not result in productive crafting. I do love Summer though.

So today's card is using another pretty image from Art by Miran called Nivanna. She looks so pretty and relaxed in the field of flowers so I thought that Tracy Wray's sentiment would go perfectly.

Here she is;

Blue and yellow is one of my favourite colour schemes, it makes me feel so warm and summery and I think it takes me back to being a teenager when I had blue and gold stars all through my room. I rather like how this one turned out and I guess my MIL did too as it has already been snapped up.

I hope you are having a lovely day and thank you so much for dropping by.

Cheers Nicole
