TIDINGS {Art by Mi Ran Showcase Blog}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

One has to pinch oneself to realise it is less than one week 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  STAR LIGHT.  Star Light is now just waiting for someone dear to her to help her put the star on top of the tree.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase STAR LIGHT here

The stars have been created with star punches. She has been coloured with Copics. The brads and design papers are from my stash. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} .
