Well, it's the 15th of the month (Funky 15th) which can only mean one thing... there is a new challenge over on 'Get Funky' - the Funky Hand Challenge Blog.
This month, it is the turn of Jackie to pick the theme of the challenge, and she's decided that she wants to see 2 cards from us this month using the new 12 Crafters Crafting CD, which is the recently released (and seen on TV) Christmas CD... And while she wants to see a Christmas card from us (of course), she's also stated that one of our cards has got to be a non-Christmas card. Now that really is a challenge... or is it?
With so many lovely bright and vibrant colour collections on the CD - I'm sure that we'll find much inspiration in the colours alone to make a non-Christmas card... there are stripes, stars, dots and circles that can be used all year round... oh, another twist... the Christmas card has to be made using the traditional colours of red and green.
Just a little hint from me - you can use more than one colour collection to make your card. There isn't a Funky Law that says all of your card has to be made from the same colour collection... of course Anice does a fabulous job of choosing 5 colours for each colour collection and they never fail to be stunning, but once in a while, it doesn't hurt to step out of that comfort zone.
So far be it from me to tell you what to do, but that's what i'll be looking at doing come my turn. In the meantime, I'll be upping my Christmas card tally while practicing.... best start making card number 2 in my tally then eh!!??? lol (and no, I really haven't started my Christmas card crafting yet!). Shame on me!
Right if you want to join in but don't have anything by Funky Hand to join in with... if you go HERE, you will find a fabulous freebie to make a card with and join in with the challenge this month - and remember that, in order to qualify for the challenge - your card has to have at least ONE Funky Hand element on it...
Can't wait to see this months entries - but don't forget to keep checking out what the Funkettes will be sharing with you all month for your crafting inspiration.
