Simply Sentimental

Morning from a quite sunny Scotland!!  I know I know I am making all of you with rain a bit sick, but lets face it how often do we Scots get to say its sunnier here than in the South?  So I am gonna enjoy it lol

Over at Get Funky the theme this month is "Get Sentimental".  Debs wants the sentiment to take centre stage on your creation so Anice has made a great freebie with a few different sentiments, perfect for all occassions. 

I have to admit this was in fact a challenge for me!  I am so used to having my image and papers all picked out before I start my card.  So I decided to keep it simple and I used the funky freebie (available here).  Both the sentiment and the stripy paper are on the freebie. 

Only one rule at Get Funky and its quite simple really, you need to use at least one Funky Hand item on your creation.  We don't mind what you make or how many challenges you enter, so long as there is a Funky Hand product on it you're in with a chance to win the download of youer choice.
We are also accepting entries via the facebook page, especially handy for those not addicted to blogging, so if you know someone who would like to enter but doesn't blog then please tell them to visit the facebook page and get entered :o)

pink and brown

Ugh who else is sick of this rain?  I am sooo sick of it, the kids are sick of not getting out to play and hubby is sick of it cos its making the grass grow so quick lol.  Hey ho, nothing we can do about it tho hey? 

I made this card for a friend to give to her sister on her 18th birthday soon.  I wanted it to be a bit girlie without being overly frilly and babyish.  Thought the pink and brown would be girlie in a  grown up kinda way lol.

yellow.......not my usual choice lol

I have an order for an 18th birthday card. I found this image in my image box and thought I'd give a wee whirl......... Now yellow is not my usual colour choice but I threw caution to the wind and decided to just go for it!! My customer doesn't like it, and if I am honest I wasn't sure she would which I know makes no sense at all but you know how it goes, sometimes our cards just don't turn out how we pictured them in our heads, but you have to go with it any way lol.

Anyway it fits a few challenges and I now have an 18th card waiting on the right 18 year old hehehe. Better head off and get my thinking cap on for another 18th card :o)

Fab n Funky ~ emboss it
Moving Along With the Times ~ Va Va Voom
Polkadoodles ~ number birthday
Anyone for Anya ~ photo inspiration
Crafty Ribbons ~ black and white and 1 colour
