Get Funky Challenge - May

Hi everyone, it's Enfys here this month, setting the challenge for May. First of all, thanks to everyone who joined in with the April Showers challenge - scroll down to see the winners.
I thought we could have some fun with
any size, any shape, as long as it's not one of the standard rectangle/squares
The rules are simple, make your project using at least one Funky Hand Product, give us a link to your blog so that we can come and see your creation, and get your entry in before midnight on the 31st May 2010
The winner will get a £20 Funky Hand voucher, and there will be coveted blog blinkies for the runners up
The team have really gone to town on their samples this month, first up is Allison, who used these really gorgeous papers from The Funky One to make this stunning box aperture card.

Next is Dolly, who grabs any chance to make one of her gorgeous handbags. The papers are from the     Retro Fun Word Book download, I just love those flowers - Lulu Guiness eat your heart out!
Jules used papers from The Funky One as well to make this funky new home card, look at the detail, don't you love the little flowers trailing up the house, and the acetate sentiment that looks just like puffs of smoke....

and Kath used Autumn Style and Juicy Lemons from the Dreams Come True CD to make this ultra bright and cheerful flowerpot card, I always love Kath's colour choices.....

Kathy used papers from the Shabby Saturday download, the watering can is one of the digi images on the  Dreams Come True CD. What a great idea to make that fringed grass.....

Ruth took shape quite literally, and made this cheeky bra and pants card, papers are from Retro Fun

She very cleverly used bits from a hair ornament for the bling...

Anice made a butterfly shaped card from the gorgeous new digi stamp download Flutterby Flowers - love that button and wire

Lythan made a little teapot based on the image from Dreams Come True and using Delightful Fun papers from the same CD.

I (Enfys) used Blue Magic papers from the Dreams Come True CD, a card cut on my cricut, and I couldn't resist a dragonfly cut in paper and acetate from the new download

So we hope we have given you some inspiration for your shaped cards.
Good luck with the challenge, we can't wait to see what you come up with...

  11. Great inspiration from the DT. I have made a card for this challenge but after internet problems which have now been sorted, Mr Blogger won't play nicely. I've composed my post but 'he' won't let me add any images so I'm giving up for now and going to bed ... will try again later.

  12. I'm back ... Mr Blogger still didn't want to play with me but I wasn't going to give in so spent the last hour trying to change his mind ... he has now relented and my card can be seen here.
