Get Funky’s April Challenge Entry!!


OOOOOh I love my new retro wordbook download from Funky Hand. It was my easter present to myself ( the easter bunny made me do it!!) and here is my entry for the Get funky challenge this month. There is an ‘April Showers’ theme and on our UK crafters thread we are using the tag1 cut from plantin schoolbook.

Both of these were fantastic for the tutorial I have been playing with from my yummy new magnolia ink mag this month. Its a gift boxy card thing and I love it. I have made 2 this afternoon but only finished this one! I am sooo chuffed with it!!!

I used the cute watering can digi stamp from Dreams come true on the front. The water is blue,glittery and glazed but didn’t show up too well in the photo, grrrrrrr!!!!!!

Here’s some more piccies……..


This is the inside of the card. I used the tag cut for the seed holders and the little verse and another digi stamp from ‘Dreams come true’


I cut a few flowers out of a scrap of paper I had and popped them out a bit with silicone glue.


Here’s the seed tag pocket!! The seed tags have little pockets on them in patterned paper that I sealed and popped out a little with silicone glue to stop the seeds falling out of the bottom!! I embossed the names on the scalloped ovals to make them 3d and they look gorgeous all puffed out.

The little sticks to show where the seeds are planted in the garden are coffee stirrers from Mcd’s!!!!! I printed the names of the seeds out and stuck them onto the sticks and then glazed over the top to make them waterproof!!!


And here’s my little Mo watching the “funky lady” ( as he calls her!!) on create and craft TV!!!!! He is so cute, he stops playing whenever she is on an watches so quietly I just had to take a piccy last time!!!!


Right, off for a cuppa now, thank you for popping in on me!!!
