Funky Hand - First Cards







Regular readers know that I have just got on the design team for Funky Hand. My CD's arrived in the mail yesterday, so I have been busy making these, as Anice, the designer has a show on Ideal World TV on May 9th, so these will go over the Atlantic to be demo cards. The range of designs is fabulous, and I am going to love working with them. This was quite liberating, as when I messed up, I didn't have to panic as I usually do - oh no, all my spotty paper has gone - just load up the printer and off I go again. In case anybody wants to know, shipping is free anywhere in the world. So here are my first attempts: The punch used on the gift card - 1st card - is by Martha Stewart from Michaels. I used white cardstock to print them out, the type you get in a big pack at walmart, and after printing one side, ran it through again, making my own double sided paper, which I used for the criss cross card. The sentiment circle and backing circle was on the CD as well.The flower card is made totally with the papers, I cut the blossoms out and stuck them on the base card, then cut around the base card at the edge of the flowers. Stuck some more flowers on the inside and added dew drops for a bit of bling. The third card has the 'dad' topper ready to print out. I printed it twice, then cut out just the letters and mounted them on top of the bottom layer, using dimensional tape. Added a few brads and went over the whole word with glossy accents. The sentiment slider was part of the kit too.


We spent the morning today jet washing the lanai. As I was outside, bringing the sun loungers back in, a 3 foot black snake shot very, very quickly across the grass just in front of me. I nearly died, I shot as quickly as the snake back inside, and stood there shaking, and checking all the doors were shut! Later, much later, we found out that it is a harmless Florida resident, they call it the racer. Well, it might race, but it would have had a job to catch me up when I saw him. Jet propelled I was.
