FAMILY HOLIDAYS {Art by Mi Ran Showcase Blog}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

One has to pinch oneself to realise it is only three weeks to Christmas.  But at least I managed to tick of another Christmas card, thanks to this cutie pie created by Mi Ran. She is called  EVE.  Eve looks gorgeous in her pretty little Christmas dress. Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase EVE here

The snowflakes have been created with scallop square punches. She has been coloured with Copics. The brads, bling and design papers (Basic Grey and Art from the Heart) are from my stash. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} .
