Raise a glass to the New Year

Here is my first DT of the year for Sparkles Challenge. This time the theme is "Raise a glass to the New Year" which is basically anything drink related - from tea, cocoa, hot chocolate, alcohol etc. Again I cannot resist the cuteness of House Mouse and have selected this gorgeous image.

I love the sentiment which suits the image perfectly and I am so happy with the cute little purple flowers which I think gives it a bright and summery feel. Enough to give you a wonderful positive feeling for the New Year.

If you want to join in with the challenge the prizes this time are:

 $10 gift voucher from Di's Digis

and £10 from Craftybren's Embroidered Embellishment.

Thanks for looking Xx

Use Buttons or Bows (or both)

Happy New Year! Hopefully by the time you read this we will be in our new home and settled in.

So here we are with the first Gruffies and Guests Challenge for 2015 with the theme of "Use Buttons or Bows (or both)" chosen by DT member Sandra. 

I have taken the image from House Mouse Triple CD. I chose it because one of my favourite flowers are daffodils, especially the ones with the big trumpets. I thought the image was adorable with the matching backing paper. I have used both a coordinating pale yellow ribbon with  polka-dot bow and some blue buttons. I love using buttons on cards. I also added a bit of iridescent glitter to the rain - any regular readers will know iridescent glitter is my favourite! 

The prize this time is a voucher from Scribble and Scrap Crafts. Hope to see your entry!

Thanks for visiting Xx
