I know I promised this one yesterday but it was a jam packed day which started off with my shower base cracking... oh yeah.... I also had a bit of the grouting fall out... well what can I say... the thing is almost 10 years old now so credit crunch or not... we have to deal with a new en-suite issue.
Alas, I had to postpone my posting today so here it is.. this time it's my entry to the Get Funky challenge which has to be spots & stripes.
I was a very naughty girl & almost forgot poor Ava's birthday so it was a last minute dash to make her card. The book says "oh no" and the front says U.R 4.... inside contains some stickers with party hats & cakes on... along with some flowers & gems.
Word book was created using the Funky Daze CD & I printed on both ends of the card. Cut out the letters then added some stitched doodling. There are some small sticker gems inside some of the circles on the letters (Papermania) and the stickers, chipboard embellishments, book ring & ribbons all come from my box of tricks by Brenda Pinnick.
Well I'm off now to do the postbox run, organise what's for tonights tea, place a tesco order & then get my head back in the books as it's essay time again!!!
Hmmmm may need to have a quick peek though at some other challenges first.... lol
See ya all soon & happy crafting

Love your book Lorraine. I've only ever made one and that was from a Funky Hand cd and it was for Poppy. I think it is because I'm not very good at cutting out!!

I love your word book Lorraine and the fact that you haven't gone with the usual words is a fab idea. I really love these colours too.

I would like to pass on a Happy 101 award to you, which is on my blog

Take care
