Stripes & Spots




Hi everyone, hope you had a great time over  Christmas & new year. I had a lovely time seeing all my family.

This is an engagement card for my nieghbours who got engaged on New Years Day . It also fits the bill for the Get Funky January challange... stripes and spots.. well actually its the other way round I based the card,surprise,surprise on stripes and spots.

The backing papers are from Funky Hand downloads, Shabby Saturday, (stripes printed in draft) hearts & spots from Huge Funky Love printed onto acetate and the pale spots from the I Do Wordbook. The hearts are punched out of card printed from Shabby Saturday then stamped with the freebie from Craft Stamper magazine, the rest is bits and pieces from my stash. The theme is Shabby!! did I intend it to be shabby?... you'll never know!... wink wink.

Now comes the tricky bit, for me any way, I still haven't mastered the art of posting a link... DURR!.. some lovely people have given me help and instruction and still I can't do it !!

Love n' hugs
xx Sue B xx

Hi Sue

Lovely to see you here "Getting Funky!".

This is one of my favourite sets of papers (though I find myself saying this about every set LOL!!).

I love your torn edges and super special hearts.

Thank you for joing in the Get Funky! challenge this month. I hope you join us again.

Love Jules xx

p.s. I am sure you will be fine with Kath's instructions for linking. She taught me when I first started blogging!!

Beautiful card Sue and I bet your neighbours love it. BTW you've been very quick to make use of the fabby Glenda stamp from this month's CS mag. Well done!

Lovely card and good use of spots and stripes - I've not used this great free stamp yet but I know I will.
