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


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
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting

    Happy New Year.

  2. Just lovely!
    I'm glad the water subsided

  3. Wow stunning card. This image is gorgeous and the different elements are just lovely -so pretty. Glad all turned out well with the water in the end x

  4. Morning Jennifer and Happy New Year to you. We had a fabulous Christmas and a quiet New Year. Brian is back at work today, so the holidays are over....I love this card my friend, and want to thank you again, for your input and creations for Whoopsi Daisy Digi and CD and hugs xxx

  5. Gosh, sounds like you had a narrow escape but I'm glad you haven't been washed away. I do hope this rain stops soon so those affected can start to sort everything out; it must be so upsetting.

    Your card is so pretty; the Daisy May papers and image are lovely and the blue/white colour combo reminds me of delicate china. I love the floral border; it's a lovely die and the way you created a frame with it is gorgeous.

    Big hugs, Kat xx
