Christmas is all about the kids......

Hello!  It's Amanda here and welcome to my Funky Fifteenth Challenge!!

I know we all dread the C word coming up when it comes to crafting, some love it and make cards happily all year, some hate it and are last minute crafters.  I love Christmas and I actually enjoy making cards and gifts for friends and family but I just can't seem to get motivated to start early enough and always end up rushing at the end!  The first cards I always make though are for my kids, at least that way if I don't make any more cards at least my babies have their cards, and as we all know

Christmas is all about the kids

so thats what I am setting for this month's theme.

Anything Christmassy for a child.  It can be anything you want........a card, a gift, a layout, a decoration ~ whatever your imagination can come up with.

You can enter as many times as you like and can combine with as many challenges as you like.  AND you get the chance to win the Funky Hand download of you choice.  Simples as the wee meerkat says :)

As always our one and only rule here at Get Funky is that you need to use at least item from Funky Hand on your creation.  There are loads of scrummy craft cds and downloads available on the Funky Hand website.  Especially the new O Come All Ye Crafters downloads.

For those who are new to Funky Hand and don't have any Funky Hand stash there is a Funky Freebie backing paper available on the website www.funkyhand.com.  :)                    
My card for this month was made using the  Santa Baby download.  The image is from the 12 Crafters Crafting cd.  The topper of the card detaches to become a Christmas Tree decoration.

I do hope you will come and join in with the Get Funky fun this month.  Please click on the blue frog to enter.
