Art By Miran Santa's Helper for Art By Miran DT Call

Hello friends.  Is everyone ready for the holidays?  I have had my Christmas tree in the stand for a week; but no time to decorate it yet.  LOL!  We were away for Thanksgiving; so Christmas snuck up on me this year.  I have heard that several areas have snow now.  We actually had rain on Saturday in Southern CA and a little thunder.  It was awesome!  We could use a lot more rain.  

I am creating this post for the Art By Miran DT call.  I am a stay at home wife; mother and grandmother (My kids are all grown up now).  I love creating cards, being part of a DT and I love to comment and provide encouragement to crafters on their blogs.  I own most of Art by Miran digis and try to buy all the new ones; plus I own most of her rubber stamps from Whimsy.  I have loved her digis from the very first card that I saw on a challenge a few years ago.  It is such a pleasure to use Art By Miran images.  She is so talented and her images bring lots of joy to those who use them; as well as those who receive them.

I would love to be a part of this fabulous group of designers; and feel I know most of them already.  I have been on several DT in the past; and have enjoyed every one of them.  It would be such an honor to be part of the Art By Miran DT.  I have added several of my Art By Miran Cards for your consideration of the DT position.  See below.

I created this card using Art By Miran Santa's Helper.  The pictures do not do it justice; as it is gorgeous in person; with lots of sparkle and shine.  I used two of the free digital papers, "Winter Frost"; which was created by Tracy Wray; who is part of the DT for Art By Miran.  I changed the color of her paper to purple on Microsoft Word; because I wanted to use my favorite colors; which are purple and yellow together.  I used a little blue; because I needed one more color.  I used Stampendeous Fran-tage Shabby White Embossing Enamel for the first time on this card.  It was really messy; but so much fun to create snow!  I can't have the real thing; so I decided to create it on my card.

I hope you enjoy this card and the ones added below.  I added a few cards for the DT Call; which I created in the past year using Art By Miran images. Click the names below the cards to purchase these images; and the link to my post is below the name of the image; if you would like more information. 

I also own this one in a rubber stamp.
