Daring Cardmakers Challenge

I did say to myself...no more challenges this week because I am knee deep in Christmas paper, stamps and bling trying to get my samples done but how could I resist this one......
the challenge this week from Daring Cardmakers is "Get Funky with Funky Hand" and as a member of the Funky Hand Design Team...no way could I miss this.....Anice who designs all the fabulous collections at Funky Hand has kindly sponsored the challenge this week and the prize is a download of the "Shabby Saturday" collection. I know I have said this before lots and lots of times, but this is my absolute favourite out of all Anice's gorgeous designs. I went a little bit overboard with the distressing on the journalling block.....it's not distressed it's positively broken hearted but hey I think it fits in with the "Shabby Chic" look, don't you.

Anice also provided a sketch to work from and that saved me a lot of time thinking about a layout....but I decided to flip it....so what are you waiting for...you can't miss out on the chance of winning this fabulous download so hurry up and get your entry in......





  • Papers: Shabby Saturday download from Funky Hand
  • Stamp: Journalling Block from Stamps Away
  • Sentiment & Flower Clear Stamp Set
  • Ribbon and Brad from my stash.
  • Flower : Poppicrafts

The sketch looks great flipped, love the big flower!

I turned WV off on my blog ages ago, BTW - got loads of spam so I'm afraid it's back. I view WV on other people's blogs as a necessary evil (never quite sure why people have both WV and moderation though?)
