Lets Celebrate

Good Afternoon

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Are you keeping well?
Hope the weather is not too bad where you are?
I would also like to welcome Tanya, who has just become my latest follower.

We are here once more with our # 262 at

 Penny's Paper Crafty.

 The theme this week is

Celebrations

This week our  Sponsor is

Cute As A Button

Prize 2 single images from  their store


I have decided to make a card to celebrate a Wedding Day
and the image I have used is IMG00235 Wedding Dress
and you can purchase it by clicking on the link HERE.


DETAILS
1. Using a 7 x 7 white card I have matted it with lemon and white
wedding paper from my stash. Sorry I do not know where its
from but I have had it for over 10yrs and finally found a
use for it.

2. Next I die cut the wedding arch using silver card and a
Marianne die, sorry don't know the name but there are
two parts to this die the second being a window. The pillars
of the arch were not long enough so I cut a second  arch
and cut off just the right amount to elongate the pillars.
I used foam pads to raise the arch so that the image
could sit snugly behind.

3. I printed the image onto super smooth card and coloured
her with Copic and gel pens. I added tiny gems to her
dress and bodice and purple gems across her hair bun.
She was then cut out in the shape of the arch so as to
 sit perfectly inside.

4. To complete I added purple flowers from my stash
and die cut the words Wedding Day from left over
silver card.

So there you have my Celebration card, looking forward
to seeing what Celebrations you are going to design for.

Until Next Time
As Always

DETAILS

1. Card size 7 x 7 and to this I have added two panels from

New Beginnings

Good Afternoon

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors.

I


Hope everything is going well for you all and that you are
coping with the sudden drop in our temperature. Boy is it
cold !! 

Welcome back for another challenge over at

 Dream Valley 

The challenge runs every fortnight , posted every other Monday.

The theme for this fortnight's challenge is 

   New Beginnings

    and we are sponsored this fortnight by


Pink Gem Designs



For my card I have used the pre-coloured image
Snail House.  You can also get it as a dig
ready for you to coloured. You can get it
and many more by just clicking on the link HERE.




DETAILS

1. Using an 8 x 8 white card I embossed it using a 
flower embossing folder.  I then used distress
 inks to colour and shade.

   2.Next I took paper from my stash and matted along 
      the bottom half of the card.  A spotty ribbon was 
       then adhered to conceal the join and finished with
 a bow and shimmer gold dome  sticker

 3, The image was then die cut and again using 
          the  same inks as the background, I went over 
        the image background  as I felt the white was
     a little harsh and I wanted to blend it into the
background.

To complete I added the sentiment and a shimmer
 gold dome sticker at each corner.


So there you have it, my take on New Beginning relates
to a New Home.  If you need some inspiration, then 
please pop on over to the challenge blog and
 take a look at the gorgeous designs my
 team buddies have done.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Girlie

Good Morning, My Crafty Friends, Visits and Follower,

Happy New Year to you all. I am back again with another DT blog post.

I am very excited today to be showcasing my very first DT make for

  Ooh La La Challenge Blog

Working with cd's is one of my favourite techniques and being able
to create using the fabulous  Ooh La La cd's is just amazing.

The challenge theme is

GIRLE and has been chosen by Deborah 

I have chosen to use an image from the 
Everyday  Collection and it can be purchased, along with
many more HERE.  The prize for the winner will be
2 digi downloads from the Ooh La La Creations Store




DETAILS

1. Using an 8 x 8 card I matted first with lilac
            glitter card them with backing paper from the cd.
  Still using the same glitter card I die cut the
    butterfly border using the Joy butterfly border
and then adhered it to the backing paper.
     Before they were adhered to the card I wrapped
       a piece of organza  lilac ribbon across the centre.

2. Next I took two paper doilies and coloured
then with lilac ( sorry  they look pink) ink,
   then adhered them flat onto the backing paper.

3. I printed the topper onto super smooth cut
    around it and using foam pads adhered it to
    the card.  Glitter has been added to give that
little extra sparkle.

4. Using the Tattered Lace flower cart die
I created the cart and added glitter all
over it.

To complete my Girle card using Lilac organza ribbon
I created the triple bow left the tail long and twisted
them and secured them to the card with Lilac Gems.

I do hope you will join in the challenge and pop over

Sparkle and New To You

Good Morning

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors,

Well after all those weeks of rushing around, making cards
wrapping presents, its over.

May I take this opportunity to wish each and everyone of you
a Very Happy New Year.

 Don't know what has happened with blogger but of some
 reason, I do not know what, some of my followers have
 disappeared. Welcome to Brawny x

How was your Christmas? I hope Santa brought you something
nice, but most of all I hope you managed to enjoy the holiday.

We as usual had a very quite Christmas, had mum over from
Christmas Eve until the day after boxing day and on the whole
I think she had a nice time,  she certainly had a bit of excitement
as on Boxing Day the  small river that runs along my house
decided to overflow and from early  afternoon we watched
the water rising in the garden until we had it flowing all over
the back, side and front gardens.

         Sandbags were delivered in the evening and my husband
          and other male residents were out in wellies barricading
   us all up.  We were fortunate enough that the water
 did not come in but its still scary watching water
    rising and knowing there is nothing you can do to
 stop it only hope and pray.  Anyway as I said
mum enjoyed looking through the window giving me
a running commentary  on what was going on.

Luckily  by the time I got up at 5am next day water
has subsided only leaving a small lake at the front
of the houses in what was the road.  We are the
lucky ones, my heart goes out to all the other
people who were not so lucky and have been
devastated  by all this rainfall.

In today's post I want to share with your my DT make for our
new challenge over at


The theme chosen for this month is 

Sparkly and New To You
(Use something new to you - image, embellishment
Technique, colouring medium etc and add some sparkle )

We Have New Challenge Blog Rules, so please Note:-

Entrants Must Use A Digi or Element from a Cd

Also Only Two entries are allowed, unless you have used
a Whoopsi Daisy image then 3 entries are allowed


My card has been made using an image from the
New Cute Daisy May cd and you can purchase it
HERE.  


DETAILS

1. Card blank is 8 x8 and I have matted with navy blue card
and then backing paper from the Cute Daisy May cd.
 I have then rounded the edges.

2. I then took another piece of navy card and a piece of
 pale blue satin paper, rounded the edges added a navy
 ribbon across the centre before mounting onto the card.

3. Here is where my Sparkly and New To Me comes in,
      using one of my new dies X Cut Naive Floral Borders
I created the frame and added silver glitter to each
flower centre.

4. The image is a pre coloured one from the cd and I
have fuzzy cut her and mounted her onto the card
using foam pads.  Keeping with the navy card I
die cut  the sentiment Happy Birthday.

So there you have it, I hope you will visit  the challenge
blog and take a look at the great work my teamies  have
done for you inspiration and join in the fun.

Whatever your up to today, enjoy it and apologies for
the long  winded blog LOL.

Until Next Time

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors,

Welcome to 2016, I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas
and New Year.
Can I just ask if my followers would check that they are still
listed as following me as blogger has been changing things and
I have lost some of my followers, thank you.

How are we all keeping. I hope happy and well?

Well 2016 has arrived and the start of challenge 25

Prize Up to $10 USD/€10 Euro worth of Digital Stamps


Hope you like my card and please pop over
to the challenge blog and take a look at the
fabulous cards my team buddies have been busy
 making for your inspiration.


DETAILS

1. Created the side easel card using an A4 white card. Then
I took another piece of card and adhered this to the top
section of the easel.

2. Using the design papers VINTAGE GARDEN PARTY
   for Michelle R Designs paper set I created the background
These papers are gorgeous and you not only get the 
backing papers, there are bows, mini envelopes.
sentiments and much more.

3. The image is from Moonflower Digistamps and she

just gorgeous and was a delight to colour with my
Copic pens.  You can purchase her by clicking HERE

die created the frame.

5. I added a mini envelope and a small bow (from the set)
and glued a small row of pearls across it. Next I added
the sentiment Best Wishes to act as the stopper.  I
created the butterflies and flowers using left over
paper from the set and added a row of lace along
the edge of the card.

To complete the design I added pearl gems into the
flower centres, along the butterflies bodies and at 
each corner of the image.

say, I hope to see your creations over on our
