Get Funky Challenge


Sorry I've not posted for a while but my arms let me down this time - unreliable body.Just another M.E symptom so I've been trying to rest my right arm especially which has meant calling on the family to help.  My daughter has been a great help ironing and doing little bits around the home and my husband has been fantastic too- hanging the washing out under my supervision,cooking etc....  Bless them, fancy having me in a Supervisory role.......  Challenging for them!!!  So this is my first day trying a little bit of crafting.  I've been dying to play.  Thought I had recovered - silly me.  So if I'm not posting you know why!!!!!!!!  RESTING !!!!

Anyway onto this month's challenge at Get Funky Challenge blog.  The theme is SPOTS AND STRIPES and you have to use one funky hand paper etc.  So I made a little handbag.  I've not used many templates but thought I'd give it a try.

I used: My Craft Studio Encyclopedia cd-rom- handbag template,Funky Hand Papercraft Factory -Dreams come True cd-rom for the papers, flower die, candy,tag,ribbon and a spotted button.
Hope it's okay.  Just wanted to do something other than a card for a change.
Happy Sunday to you all.
Love Debs x
