Another Month - Two More Challenges......

Time for another Funky Hand challenge, set this time by Kath, who is a bit of a Christmas-a-holic, so of course she had to set this month's task, which is to make a decoration of some sort, do go over and take a look, the team have really pulled all the stops out on this one.
I found this JOY wooden word in the dollar bin at Target, it is covered in bright silver glitter, but I soon put a stop to that and covered the front with papers printed off from the Blue Christmas download

the snowmen were cut from the Snow Friends cricut cartridge, I gave them rosy cheeks, although a snowman shouldn't really be rosy, but it made them look cute
so get your thinking caps on, there is a £20 (about $30) funky Hand gift voucher up for grabs for the entrant that catches Kath's eye. You have until the end of the month to enter, and the only rule is that you use one Funky Hand paper in your design
The first of the month is also the start of the next Lily-Boo challenge, this month it's all about paper piecing. I printed out the image twice, once onto a pattern paper, and cut the tree out of that. It's really a summery digi stamp, but I fancied trying to make it look Christmassy, I think it worked? What do you think?
The base card is a pre-embossed one from DCWV - I was in a hurry as usual, and this saved time.

Again, you have a whole month to enter, it can be any sort of card, just paper piece something on the image. Quite a few new cardmakers come and visit, so a quick explanation about paper piecing, you stamp a base image, then stamp the same image again onto pattern paper, and cut out the bit you want - maybe a child's dress, a flower, you get the picture. Then stick the cut out piece onto your base image. This is a favourite technique of mine, and it cuts down on colouring too!


See you all tomorrow, I am off to clear up after the hurricane that swept through the garage, one of these days I'll take a photo of the mess I make, until you see it, you wouldn't believe it

  32. Hi Enfys - I love both the JOY decoration and the card. I would have never thought of remaking the JOY and you've done such a wonderful job - will have to add it to my list of ideas for next year - way too behind already this year. The card is awsome - the image looks totally Christmas and beautiful.
