Dreams DO Come True................

So today sees the launch of Funky Hand's new CD - Dreams Come True, on Create and Craft TV in the UK at noon. Good luck Anice xx
This card was cut with the doily feature from wildcard, at 5 1/2", which fits in nicely with this week's dare over on
Daring Cardmakers, where one of my Funky Hand teamies has set the dare for this week
Well, there's holes all round this one Lythan, I hope it fits the bill.
I printed the pattern onto 140gsm cardstock, then cut out the base card.

I love duckegg and brown, don't you?
For this next one, I printed out the spotty paper for a background, and covered the front of a scallop card base.
The teapot and cups are images off the CD, and the fabulous thing is that with the click of a mouse you can enlarge any of them, quickly and easily, with no fiddling around with photoshop or anything, and believe me, if I find it easy, that means it's truly a doddle...................
I decided against colouring in the images, I rather liked the graphic looking black and white. I could, of course, have printed it out onto one of the pattern papers, and it would have totally coordinated. I added some clear shimmerz to drip from the teapot spout. The large letter T is by papermania, and the rest of the sentiment (cheesy isn't it?) was done on the computer.
The printed elements were stuck on with foam pads, to give dimension, and I finished with a silver brad on the teapot lid

So watch out for more Dreams Come True cards over the next few days

It has started to thaw! YESSSSSSSSSSSS! Now it is all slushy and drippy, but so welcome.

Have a lovely weekend

I loved the Funky Hands CD and have kept the recorded prgramme so I can look at all the amazing demos and ideas again. I saw your cards there too! Love the tea pot one. Also have to agree that the brown and duck egg blue are fab together. Hoping to find some pennies for the funky hand cd as I have fallen in love with it!
