Funky Fifteenth- Zing Into Spring!!

Good Morning Peeps!!!
Well, I can't believe it but we are into March already and the Funky Fifteenth is upon us already!!! Its my turn to choose the theme over on Get Funky. Don't forget to check Jules's post  to see if you are  the funky winner for feb!!!!

Now onto this months Funky Fifteenth challenge which is........
Zing Into Spring.

I love spring and I would love to see your creations using funky spring colours of greens, yellows and lilacs.
somewhere on your creation you must use a
Funky Hand paper on your entry.

And Anice has been busy creating a deliciously springy freebie HERE for any of you that are worried you can't play along with us if you don't have any springy coloured Funky Hand papers.

Our very own little Betty is having her tv debut with Anice and the fabulous Craft The Year Away papercraft factory today over on the Ideal World Create & Craft channel at 10am and 2pm today so I thought I would get her all springy for you!!

My Betty is from the Love 'N' That stamp set. I carefully snipped away her gorgeous box of choccies
(she didn't mind when I told her I was going to swap it for a huge choccy easter egg all wrapped up!)

I printed straight onto my card base using my Craft The Year Away cd and inked the edges with some yummy purple chalk ink. I also printed out some of the super cute little chick stamps from the cd,cut
them out and 'fluffed'them up by embossing them!!

 Then using the fabby new Rainbow Polka Dots papers, I made myself some yummy looking easter eggs. I ripped a teeny hole in the one Betty is holding and squeezed a little chick in....hope she takes him out before she eats the egg...!!!!

I made the sentiment by popping the rainbow dots printed paper back into my printer and using the angelina font in the workspace to write 'Zing into spring'.
The yummy ribbon and buttons come from the Funky stash and they are both from the September song sets.

....Phew...she didn't eat him!!!!!

Don't forget to check back on Get Funky on the 17th to see what Anice has to share with you for her zingy springiness!!! and don't forget to tune into Create&Craft to see some funky demo's with Anice today at 10am & 2pm.
So, go get funky and have fun!! can't wait to see what you all come up with.

(Oh,this is my 2nd post for today so if you are looking for my Tiddly Tuesday its under this one!!!)

This week, Challenge 42, is all about GREEN!!

To give you some ideas for green theres St. Patrick's Day coming up and spring knocking at our door. So grab your favourite Tiddly Inks image and get going on a creation that either encompass a St. Patrick's Day theme  OR run with the environmental theme of Save The Earth!
Just pop over to the challenge blog to get some inspiration from the Dt who have rocked the challenge as always, they are awesome gals xxx

I went for a bit of St Patrick and luck for my card. I just had to use the frog prince from the froggie thoughts set for my image. He needs some luck finding that princess to kiss him doesn't he?!!
The sentiment is from my scrap'n'fonts newsletter freebie set, its so sweet.

My papers are all from my Craft The Year Away cd, I love the green spotty one behind my froggie!!! its so cool and I love how all the greens mush together so fab, Anice rocks at that colour co-ordinating thing  (...which is totally fabulous as I don't do co-ordinating that well and normally cheat with double sided paper packs!!!!!)

I am entering this little guy in the Luck of the irish challenge over on the Allsorts challenge blog too as he will fit just nicely in that with that....who knows he might find an irish princess over there!!! :)

In a couple of hours I will be posting again with the new Funky Fifteenth challenge for Get Funky so please pop back and see me again!!
