CMM78 | Anything Goes Sponsored by Art by Mi Ran

Welcome to the January Edition of Card Makin' Mamas Challenges!

Happy New Year!

With the New Year comes change...we have new Design Team members, a new look, new sponsors and new structure to our challenges, including pictures with your link up!

New Challenges every 1st and 3rd Fridays. 

There are still a few things in the works (meeting the DT, new badges...), so be sure to join our Facebook group to be the first to know!

We hope these changes will help inspire you to create and share your love of paper crafting! 

Our challenge this month is sponsored by the wonderful:

Hello! I am Mi Ran artist and owner of Artbymiran.
I was born in Seoul, South Korea. I grew up with Korean and Japanese Manga. In my childhood, I loved drawing and making my own little stories. I moved to Canada in my late 20s, where I reside with my husband.

I have worked on a variety of publications, ranging from children's to contemporary adult genres. I have contributed as an artist and colorist. I also worked as a graphic artist and layout designer for non-comic publications. For several years I was able to share my passion through teaching art to elementary school aged children. These experiences have influenced my recent artwork.

I am excited to have been kindly received into the community of digi stampers and crafters.

I love to share my art. I love thinking of new images, and it’s so fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art.

You can find Artbymiran images at my Etsy Shop

My designers' creations can be seen on my blog

Link up for a chance to win 3 images of your choice from Art by Mi Ran!

The challenge theme is: Anything Goes

This is a great way to start the 2014 challenges, don't you think? After the busy holidays, we hope you'll be able to take some time and join in our challenge!

    1. Hi, Janis!
