DAD wordbook

A friend asked me to make a card for her husband from their two girls. I was out of mojo when I was sitting with the card blank but then I decided to try and make a wordbook. The papers arrived today and are by Dovecraft, the self adhesive ribbons and chipboard embellies are from the same set. Ribbons are from SU!. The image is Edwin from Magnolia and is coloured with promarkers, I cut off the wings though as the recipient really isn't a fairy kind of guy.......know what I mean? lol ;o)
I have been planning to buy the Funky Daze cd from Funkyhand for a while now as I really like these books and after spending quite a LONG time on this today (and going wrong once or twice of course lol) I will definetely be waiting til I have bought the cd before I make another one of these :o)

I have looked through my notebook and I see that this will qualify for the ABC challenge:- B for Brown and Blue and Charisma Cardz:- Hugs and Kisses (there's plenty of cuddles in the pics!)

i struggle with these. make them too small. let me know how you go with the funky hand download, i fancy getting one too, as i love these wee books.

Amanda it's fab. I Love Funky Hands CD's, I have them all. I know what you mean about the Mojo thing, I've really been struggling this week, but then again I've not been feeling well and I've had 2 really long days this week up at 4 and only getting home at 8. I only managed 2 cards today and 1 I'm not happy with at all and it's due tomorrow for my Guest Design Team assignment. Hopefully my mojo will be back in the morning and has recovered as well as yours did.

PS, I've added you to the list will let you know when I have more additions to the team.
