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!

Artbymiran - Challenge #1

Hiya Everyone! Hope you're all enjoying the little teases of sunshine we are having at the moment .... Spring will soon be upon us!!  Yay!!

Well, I'm soooo excited for this post today as it is the start of a brand new challenge ......
I feel so honoured to have been chosen as part of this awesome DT and would absolutely LOVE for you all to come along and join in the fun with a chance to win the most beautiful digi images, which can be found HERE.

Our first challenge is ANYTHING GOES so no excuses not to join in :)
Mi Ran is offering a fabulous prize to each of our Winners and Top 3 and you can check out all the info plus the rules HERE.

For my first Challenge DT card, I chose to colour up the extremely beautiful Ceridwen

I absolutely adore how dainty and delicate she is with her flowing hair and dress!

I coloured her up with Copics and fussy cut around her, then layered her onto my die-cut mat which has her pretty flower shower happening all around her!

The DP's are Bonnets & Bowties from LOTV.  The flowers are a mixture from WOCHobby House and Live & Love Crafts.  Lace, pearl strings, rhinestone flourish, adhesive pearls & bling are all from HH and the butterfly die and heart doily are from Joanna Sheen.

The little zipper is from my stash and says 'precious' ... which I think suits this gorgeous girl perfectly!

I really do hope you can join us in the start of this fabulous new venture and look forward to seeing your beautiful creations.  Don't forget to check out my awesome DTeamies' creations too - they're stunning! 

We also have a Showcase Blog with daily inspiration from our extremely talented Showcase DT and a Facebook Fan Page for you all to share with us your gorgeous artbymiran creations.
