Funky Hand Challenge - Thank You

The challenge this month at Funky Hand is a project to say 'Thank You' - quite appropriate for this time of year when we have people we need to thank.  The only rule is that you must use a Funky Hand product and if you have nothing from them there is a brilliant freebie which you can find on their sidebar to download.  I've used various papers from Craft The Year Away in the Marching On range with the background printed full size and some other patterns reduced in size for the layers.  The stamp used is from Papermania and has been stamped onto card printed from the same collection cut out with a Nestability label die. The flowers were punched with X-cut punches and leaves with a Stampin Up bird punch.


  1. lovely thank you card Val and very pretty papers. The leaves from the bird punch come in very handy don't they


  2. Love the colours Val... great card.

  3. Love the papers on this card Val - and, as you said, very appropriate for this time of year. Agree with Anne about the leaves from the bird punch.

  4. I love the colours of this Val, a super Thank You
    card, just the thing after Christmas.

  5. Love the way you've used that ribbon to highlight the contrasting colour whilst still leaving the sentiment as the focal feature. The little punched flowers work beautifully with the patterns of the papers.
