Funky Hand Monthly Challenge

It's the first of the month, so time for this month's Funky Hand challenge, which this month was set by Dolly
She chose
I took the challenge literally and printed out some papers from Dreams Come True CD, and resized some of the funky flowers. I just drew the pocket shape onto one of the papers, I got it right on my fourth attempt! The bigger flowers are Tim Holtz tattered flowers Sissix die, and I layered them all up with foam pads. I stitched around the pocket shape, and added some buttons printed from the CD

You have a whole month to take part in the challenge, and the winner gets a £20 ($35) Funky Hand voucher
Anice will be back on Create and Craft TV on the 13th August, so be sure to catch her if you can
I am moving around like an octegenarian today - I have hurt my back, so not much of a spring in my step today. It will be a visit to the osteopath first thing on monday if there isn't a miracle healing overnight.
