What a horrible day it is today. We’re just into September, it’s dark, wet and windy and I think we’ve said goodbye to our summer for good ……..if you can call that one week of hot weather back in April, summer!
Oh well never mind, at least with it being so grotty outside it’s a good excuse to stay in and have a go at this weeks dare from the Daring Cardmakers. The blog’s looking really pretty this week too because we have been sponsored by Funky Hand and all the design team have used a set of their downloaded papers, Shabby Saturday to make their cards.
Not only that, if you pop over to the DCM blog and have a go at the template challenge you’re in with a chance of winning a download of this beautiful set of papers for yourself, so go on, get yourself over there…..you don’t want to miss out!
As I said, it’s a template challenge this week
And here’s my card.
All of the papers, the greeting and the large flower are part of the download and I used a few punches to make some more flowers in different sizes.
All that’s been added is some embossing, distress ink and a few spots of glitter glue.
I have to say how impressed I was with the Funky Hand papers.
I’ve only ever used a download once before and quite frankly it was pants. Even though my printer was working fine the papers came out with lots of lines across them and it put me off ever trying again. These Funky Hand ones are totally different because they print beautifully and the colours are just great.
I for one am off to their Shop to buy some more and hopefully I’ll see you there….in the queue!
By the way, if you stop by the DCM blog next Tuesday you’ll be able to see some more cards made in the Shabby Saturday collection as I’m using it for the cards I’m making for our Little Extra………so see you then!
