Kathy's Spotty House of Flowers

Hello, it's me, Kathy, back again already....
This time I'm here with my projects for our new Hostess Ruth's challenge:

Polkadots and Flowers

To join in with us this month, all you need to do is make any project you like using those ingredients - as long as you use at least one Funky Hand product you'll be in with a chance of winning this month's free download prize.  There's even a perfectly matched freebie to download, so even if you don't have your Funky Stash yet there's no excuses! 

I've used papers from the CD Craft the Year Away to make my card for this time.  I needed a "new home" card and thought it would work nicely with the dots and flowers of this month's Funky Fifteenth
I've printed out the polka-dot paper in 2 sizes using the workspace on the Papercraft Factory CD - I do love playing about with that facility!  I used my Craft Robo to cut the house and the flowers and then used a quilling tool to add some shape to the petals
Papers: Papercraft Factory CD "Craft the Year Away", this collection is called "September Song"
Tiny mauve gems, pc generated sentiment, Inks
Spelbinders dies to cut aperture and surround,
Spelbinders die for sentiment piece
Craft Robo templates for little house and flowers

I cut far too many flowers and it seemed a shame to bin them. so I made a super-simple "bonus" card too.
I used a (MS) border punch along a leftover piece of the polka-dot paper, added a length of Seam binding with a knot on it, then just glued the flowers along the ribbon and added more of the mauve gems and a sentiment sticker/rub on to finish

We're looking forward to seeing your creative projects this month - please don't forget 
or your entry won't qualify.

That's all from me - there'll be another Funkette along in a couple of days to share another project, so please come back soon

Happy Crafting!!
