and here is a little about Miria

Hi Everybody my name is Miria from Italy. Firstly I would like to thanks the Winter Wonderland team for giving me the chance to be Guest designer in the spotlight for the first time. I am so proud of it ladies.

As you will see from my blog name I love all things handmade. I have been making cards for family and friends since I was a young girl; many years ago I found stamping and was stuck! More recently I have had a go with fabric and sewing and now like to mix these techniques, as I did in this card.


The house is a fabric image I pasted onto felt with heat and bond and then cut it out. The little girl is a LOTV lovely stamp, I punched the background of the sentiment with a border punch and the holly leaves I have added beads to on the roof.

I would love to meet you so please come and visit my blog here

Isnt that a gorgeous card? Miria thanks for joining us this week we really appreciate it.


Here is what the team have come up with - hope it inspires you to join in the fun. Dont forget to visit their blogs by clicking on their name - you can find out any challenge combinations too!
