CELEBRATE THE SEASON {Art by Mi Ran Showcase Blog}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Our theme for October is FALL COLOURS.

This year is just flying by and before we know it, Christmas Day is upon us.  So I have been busy expanding my Christmas card stash.  This time I have used this cute little girl called SANTA'S HELPER created by the talented Mi Ran.  She really is so pretty and I am sure has been a very good girl to qualify as Santa's Helper.   Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase SANTA'S HELPER here at Treasured Times Stamps.

The folded embellishments have been created with a template and the flourishes stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps.  She has been coloured with Copics.  I have decided to use non traditional Christmas colours to go with ABM's fall theme for October. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The design papers and brads are from my stash.

    6. It´s sooo beautiful Desiré, and I wish we could get all the awesome digis out there,but there´s just sooo many awesome images these days, that there´s not a chance, that we can ever get through them all LOL. I still have a huge filefolder on my computer of wonderful images, that I´ve been tempted to buy, and never even had time to color yet LOL, so I´ve made myself (andd hubby) the promisse, that I wount buy anymore, until I´ve colored all these at least once he he he, so it might be a while, I´m afraid. But I wount promisse, that I don´t get to slip a single one in there at some time thoug ha ha ha
