A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Bashful Belinda

Hiya lovely peeps! Hope you're all happy and well :) I'm so excited to share my post with you all today!

I am an extremely lucky girl as I was chosen to become a DT member on the Challenge Team for the wonderfully talented Mi Ran of Art by Mi Ran and still have to pinch myself to believe it!  Both Mi Ran and the DT girls are amazing and I feel very honoured to be working with them all.

The Showcase Team have been sharing their gorgeous creations this month using a GREEN theme.

 I'm super excited to be hosting the Showcase Blog today and, taking centre stage on my card is the adorably sweet, Bashful Belinda.
Isn't she the cutest little doll?  I adore her and jumped at the chance of colouring her up :)
You can find this little beauty, alongside an array of beauties in Mi Ran's SHOP.

Copics used as follows:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair/Shoes:  E29, E31, E33, E50, E51
Dress:  YG03, YG06, YG23, YG63, YG67
My embellishments of roses, pearls, lace and cameo are all from the Hobby House and the DP's are Rose's Dream and Mini Dots from Bearly Mine Designs.

If you're not already, we'd love for you to become a follower of both the Showcase Blog and Challenge Blog.  We would also love you to join in on our Facebook page where you can share your creations with us all and join in the challenge over there, which is going on right this minute, as we speak! :)
