My First Challenge Entry

I can't believe it... I'm entering my very first challenge over at Get Funky.  The brief is just to use ANY Funky Hand paper in the project.  My entry is a word book I made for my Friend to send to her Dad.  It was a bitter sweet commission as I had just lost my Dad - but I really didn't mind doing it and found myself pouring all my love and effort into making her Dad a lovely card.  It is a word book.  He likes gardening so is based, of course, on a gardening theme in green colours.  I thought I'd enter something other than a valentines card as this card was made with Sooo much love - as if I was making it for my own Dad - who would have loved it too. 

Hope you like it!

    A gorgeous work book. I love all the special embellishments you have added.

    What an honour for Get Funky! to be the first challenge you enter - there will be another on the 1st March .. .. would be nice to see you here again then.

    I love the papers you have chosen to make your book. The colours remind me of the sky, grass and earth which are just so appropriate for your theme.

    Love Jules xx
