Hi Everyone

I hope that you enjoyed the first month of our "new look" Get Funky! Challenge.
I know all the Funkettes really enjoyed making and posting their inspirational projects and it was lovely to see so many of you sharing your creations with us. 

Hopefully you get chance to play along this month - 
we love visiting your lovely blogs to see what you do with Anice's Funky Goodies.

Were you our lucky winner or were you chosen to receive one of our coveted blinkies??? 
You will need to check Allison's post below to find out.


This Funky Fifteenth it is my turn (Jules) to set the challenge and I am very predictably asking you to

"Show Us Your Heart"

Now that Valentine's Day has been and gone and we are all "loved up"
I thought it would be nice to continue the love and include a heart somewhere on your creation
....  we can't wait to see what you create.

Of course you do not have to make a card .. .. you can make anything you like .. .. a tag, ATC, scrapbook page, wordbook .. .. perhaps a 3D project

somewhere on your creation there needs to be a heart .. ..
AND .. .. a Funky Hand paper or extra.

For anyone who doesn't have any Funky Hand products at the moment Anice has very kindly produced another freebie paper that is available from the Funky Hand website,
look for the freebie in the downloads section. 

To kick things off here is my creation:

I have used the "February Love" section of the new "Craft The Year Away" CD .. .. .. which the free paper this week matches perfectly.  I have just used a small strip of the free paper - the strip with all the hearts.  It reminds me of strawberry cream chocolates mmmm.....

The anniversary sentiment is from Our Betty "Love N That" clear stamp set.

I love adding flowers to my creations and find that simply rubbing around the petals with an old ink pad brings a bit of extra life to the flower heads.  It isn't such a good look if your ink pad is too new or juicy as the ink is often too strong .. .. but a good old "well used and well loved" one is just pefect.

This time round you are in for a mega treat .. .. because our Funkette numbers have increased 
recently so you can expect even more inspirational up-dates.  Woo hoo!!!

Next up will be my lovely teamie Loopylou - who will be here on the 17th showing us her heart.

So what are you waiting for .. .. ..Get Funky! and show us "your" heart
and who knows .. .. .. you could be the winner of the free download !!!

Have fun!!!

Love Jules xx

  4. What a lovely card, Jules . A great inspiration for those of us who are new at designing their cards.
    I am hoping to join in with the challenge this month if I can, so must get my act together asap, as missed the deadline yesterday for last months and was gutted .
    All the DT team are an inspiration to a newbie card designer like me who doesnt know really yet what my style is. Looking forward to everyone elses cards too.
