YOUNG AT HEART {Art by Mi Ran Showcase Blog}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Hope all of you are keeping well and having fun in April, yes can you believe it that 2015 has already progressed to the end of April.  There must be a secret island where time is escaping too.   I have used this super cute little girl called  STEAMPUNK SISSY.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase STEAMPUNK SISSY over at Whimsy Stamps here

The theme over at Art by Mi Ran's Showcase Blog is MONOCHROMATIC for April.  I have coloured her with Copics. The brads, bling and design papers are from my stash. The folded flowers have been created with scalloped square punches.  The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} .

  49. You always amaze me as you don't run out of paper-fold technique to compliment your card. So delighted you blessed us with your project last week at Word Art Wednesday. We have a new Challenge going on and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Psalm 18:6 which says, "In my distress I called upon the LORD, And cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, And my cry for help before Him came into His ears." Have a blessed weekend.
