Funky Love

Hello All and Happy Friday!

Another week of Winter down and now a little bit closer to Spring! It is actually a bit warmer than it has been today, maybe even warm enough for the kids to play outside in the snow. It's also the start of a long weekend for us with a holiday on Monday. I hope you have a great weekend ahead!

Today is new challenge day at Just Magnolia and at Stamp Something and both challenges are easy peasy so no excuses not to play along. First up is my card for JM with our theme of "Love You". I decided to use the love theme but not for Valentine's or with red.

The papers on this card are Graphic 45 and I've stitched the edges on the sewing machine. The image was colored with Copics and then I stamped on some made with much care postmarks from the Whimsy Postage Stamp set. I've embellished with ribbon, flowers, a glittery chipboard heart and a heart hat pin. The sentiment is a Love Seal from the Whimsy Love Letter Seals set.

This card also fits at:
Get Funky - Show us your heart
Sliekjes Card Challenges -  love
Oldie But Goodie Challenge - Add a heart
Design Dollies - Love
Cupcake Craft - I heart you - use hearts
KB Cute monday - Love
Lawnscaping - NO DIGS and All About Love
Kaboodle Doodles - Hearts and Flowers

Next up is my card for the challenge at Stamp Something which this week is "Funky Somethings" in honor of our sponsor Funky Kits - the home of Sugar Nellie stamps! I've used a new Simply Sassy image called Hippie Chick and I love her!

For the funky element I've used some bright colors and the combo of pink and orange with papers from BG's Green at Heart pack. I've also stitched the edges on this card too. I colored the image with Copics and then embellished the card with sticky gems, flowers, and twine.

This card fits at:
My Grafico - anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Stitching
Forgotten Scraps -  Spring or flowers
Copic Creations -  use warm colors

Thanks so much for dropping by today. I hope you will check out our challenges and play long! Have a fantastic Friday!

Hi Denise

A two beautiful cards .. great stitching.

Sadly the one you have entered into the Get Funky! Challenge for this month is not eligible to be considered for the prize or for a blinkie.

Although your card is lovely it does need to have a Funky Hand paper or other Funky Hand item on it to qualify.

There is a free paper available to download if you don't own any yet and would like to enter again.

Love Jules xx
