Funky Friday

I feel so lucky this week as I have had so much beautiful goodies to play with that it is sometimes difficult choosing what to use's so difficult being on manufacture's design teams. Only joking, I feel truly honoured to be able to work with some fantastic team mates to bring you a little bit of inspiration for when you buy the products yourself.

This weekend will see the release of some fantastic products from Funky Hand. Anice has made a really beautiful collection of papers and alphabets in shades of pink and grey and it is called "Just For Jen". It is our little reminder that Breast Cancer affects so many of us at some time in our life and it only takes seconds to check our breasts on a regular basis. You are never too young and you are never too old, just be safe and if caught early it can be completely curable.

So onto my first card made just using the papers alone, oh and a piece of ribbon and a flat backed pearl, how easy is that.

I've used four of the papers on this card, the band and the flower are from scraps from other cards. The flower is made using a Tim Holtz die but it can easily be made without. Cut a strip of paper about 2cm wide and 30 cm in length and pleat it at approximately 1/2cm intervals. Tape the ends together and squash it down onto a smaller circle of paper covered in glue. Decorate as required and hey presto....a flower made to match any of your projects :)

I've used the same papers to make the following cards (and still have plenty left to make more cards) but have used a couple of new digi stamps which are also due for release shortly.

Both coloured in an assortment of pink and grey Promarkers to match the papers.

My lovely team mate Kathy posted some of her DT makes using the same kit, on the Get Funky And Craft blog yesterday and as always, they are amazing!

Well, I'm now off to try to use up the rest of my papers, thanks for dropping by. xx
