Our Fabulous Sponsor for this weeks
 Make it for Christmas Challenge

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. 
Artbymiran turned one year this past July, and I can’t believe how far we have come in just 1 years’ time. 
We have our main blog where my wonderful and talented showcase designers shares creations daily, a bi-weekly challenge blog showcasing fabulous creations to inspire by my super talented designers. Our Fan base Facebook page, a place to share your creations, chat with fellow crafters, and play in monthly challenges. 
I also found the wonderful opportunity to turn my digital images into rubber stamps, you can see all of my stamps at Whimsy Stamps and Treasured Times Rubber Stamps. 
I love sharing my art, creating new images. I receive so much joy seeing others make them into beautiful works of art.

This week's PRIZE is ...

Hello Friends,
Thank you for the wonderful opportunity here today to be Guest Designer for "Love To Create".

I have been Scrapping on and off just as a hobby for over 10 years but have been more serious with my scrapping since retiring from my Curtain/Interior Design Business 4 Years ago.
I love to be creative and most of all, I like my work to be different.  My forte is definitely designing and making cards and I love entering as many challenges as I possibly can.
I am DT for My Besties 3D Decoupage Australia, My Besties International USA, My Besties UK, Scrap Book Blessings Club USA and I am the Creator and Owner of Meet at the Scrappers Corner where I run a monthly Challenge, I am DT Leader along with 5 wonderfully talented DT Ladies who work alongside of me.
