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!

Pretty Molly and a DT Call

Hiya lovely crafty peeps! Hope you're all well and happy :)  I'm super happy right now .... it was my birthday on Wednesday and I got extremely spoilt!  My daughters treated me to my first ever Pandora charm bracelet!! Oh my word! How excited was I?  They are both very lucky to already have one of these beautiful little gems and I was always a little envious LOL .... they probably just wanted to shut me up hehe!

Another reason for me being super happy right now is that I'm finally off for my very own wedding dress fitting tomorrow!! Eeeeek! I'm so happy right now I could burst!  Wedding plans are well underway .... let's just hope I don't turn into Bridezilla .....

Anyway, enough of me!  It's time for Challenge 9 at Art By Miran and, as always, it's 
(with a hand coloured image)

The hugely talented Mi Ran has been working up an absolute treat for you all with her newest images.  I love all of her images, which you can find HERE, and it's always such a difficult choice of which one to use!  I decided to colour up the adorable  PRETTY MOLLY and here she is ......
She's certainly pretty for sure!
I coloured her up with Prismacolor Pencils (love playing with these at the moment) then fussy cut her out and popped her onto the card 3D style.  The papers are from LOTV and I die-cut the top edge using a Lace Edge Signature Die from Joanna Sheen.  The Butterfly Die is also Joanna Sheen and the flourish is an XCut 'Leafy Flourish' Die.

The flowers are a mixture from WOC and the Hobby House and the little adhesive gems are from my stash.
A little close up for you ..... I know I need more practice on blending the pencils together to get a much smoother look, but I am trying .... honest!! ;)

One more exciting announcement before I go ...... Art By Miran are in the process of having a DT Call, which ends on June 30th!  If you love these images as much as we do and would love to work amongst Mi Ran's fabulous team of ladies, head on over HERE to apply!

I would like to enter into the following:
