Two new challenges

The first of the month means another challenge over on Funky Hand, this month Lythan set the challenge
Use at least five Funky Hand papers/elements
So I made a word book with the new Christmas download, available from the site now
These word books are easy to do, you just print out the letters you want and cut around them

I just print on the back of the sheet so that it matches with the paper on the facing page. I got it all ready for my sister to put in photos of her little grandsons, she will give it to her son at Christmas
I used my bind it all to bind the book together

Why not have a go at the challenge? Go over to the blog to see the rules, there is a prize each month for the winner.
On to the next challenge
Friday is Polkadoodles day and the challenge this week, set by Dee, was
Fancy Folds
So I made this swing card, I have no idea what this is really called, swing card thingy should do for now
I used papers and elements from the Sundae of Seasons CD

Difficult to photograph, but here's the front of the card

and this is what happens when you open it, the message swings around. As usual there is a prize for the winner of the challenge, why not have a go, I dare you.......

No need for anyone to worry about the American economy. All will be well. My sister and I have visited every store within a 50 mile radius of here. She went back with an extra case, and one seriously overweight one.
See you tomorrow
