Amanda's January Blues

Hello from a very chilly Scotland......my January blues could be my hands these last few days, it's been bitterly cold here!

Can you believe its Febrary now? Don't know about you but I have no idea where January has gone, not that I mind it being a bit closer to Spring :o)
As you probably know the fabulous Lou has set this months challenge of "January Blues" (check here for the original post and more details) The freebie for this month is available here and it is another lovely paper from Anice, perfect for any occassion.

For my card I had a bit of a play around with the Papercraft Factory cds. Part of what I love about the Funky Hand cds that are Papercraft Factory is the ability to mix and match between them. For my easel cards I used the paper, writer and image from the Birthday Boy collection on Happy Happy Birthday and the template from the 12 Crafters Crafting cd. I printed the paper out as a full page on one side then the template on the other side, this way when you fold over the easel part the paper is double sided and as you can see from my picture the stripes match up!

So please come and join in the Get funky fun and show us your January Blues. Please do remember our only rule here at Get Funky is that you must use at least one Funky Hand item on your creation. Feel free to make what you like and combine it with any other challenge you want, but please use a Funky Hand item to be entered into the prize draw for a free download of your choice.


  1. Amanda this is a wonderful card. I'm very impressed that your stripes match up so perfectly. That Robot digital stamp I think, will always be a big favourite of anyone who has the Craft The Year Away CD ROM!

  2. A super card for a little boy and what a great tip for lining up your stripes! Ni. :) x

  3. Very effective card Amanda. 'Specially love the photo corner effect. I must try an easel at some point ... and make use of the fab robot. Can't believe that I haven't done either. Cat xox

  4. Amanda this is too cute! I do so love an easel card
