Sentimental to the Last

Hi, Kathy here today with the last project for our current challenge.
Get Funky! is all about showcasing Design Team projects and encouraging people to share the things they've made using products from
Between 15th April and 15th May, we've all been getting sentimental with hostess Debs' theme:

Usually its an image or a decorative element that is the focus of the things we make - but this time it's the sentiment taking the starring role.
You've just about got time to join in and add your project but remember,
 you must use at least one FUNKY HAND product!

and you must make the sentiment the focal point of whatever you make
Maybe you are new to Funky Hand and haven't any of their stash to use - well, no problem as there's a FUNKY FREEBIE 
themed especially for this current challenge - perfect for joining in at the last minute, eh?

Free craft backing papers to download for card making and scrapbooking

available here

I've made a card using the Funky Freebie and also papers from the Funky Hand Papercraft Factory CD - Happy Happy Birthday
which has the perfect paper design for something where the sentiment is the star - because the entire sheet is covered with the sentiment!
I printed the paper in two sizes, the larger version for the background and a teeny sized piece to make the little square "button" embellishment.  The two red squares are also from the same paper collection and the fab striped design is from this month's Freebie.  I punched a couple of holes through the square button and add some green twine and it was done.

I still had some scraps left, plus a piece of gingham paper I'd printed but didn't use in the end, so here's my "bonus" card using one of the sentiments from the Freebie - with a little freehand amendment ;)

You've got today and tomorrow (14th) to get your entries in and you never know, you could end up winning our regular prize of a your choice of Funky Hand Downloads - it's got to be worth a try, hasn't it?

Please add your entry with Mr Linky below.

Happy Crafting
Kathy xx


  1. Clever use of the different scale of the sentiment paper - so easy with the FH CDs I find. Well done for using up the bits for a bonus card

  2. Brilliant cards to round off this months challenge Kathy. A real inspiration as always.

  3. I love the first card, great idea to use a smaller scale paper to make your button! Clever use of the paper to make the fower petals too, great cards! :)
