I've managed to make a card to cover two challenges again - this is getting to be a habit!!  The Funky Hand challenge for this month is 'January Blues' and I've used papers from the Jovial Man collection on the Colour Me Happy CD.  What I particularly like about these CDs is that you can take the papers onto the workspace and change the size and scale which I reckon works well.. The other challenge is Forgotten Friday on Judith's blog and the forgotten elements are the floral image which is a stamp from Chocolate Baroque Fantasy Meadow and one from the set which I'd so far not used, also the die cut tag in blue is from a Sizzix die which I really NEEDED back in November from Stampin Up and to my shame this is the first time it had been taken out of the packet!!  The birthday greeting is also a SU stamp and is on punched shapes from SU.


  1. This is a great card Aquarius. I really like how you have used the same spotted paper but at two different sizes. It looks great. Thanks for joining in with this months Get Funky Challenge.

  2. What a great card Val, I love the way you've matted with the 2 different colours of card, matching with the spots.

  3. I'm still cutting out rubber & trying to use Forgotten things........ maybe I should try to get myself doing this on Friday's too. I like the way your circular framing of the image echoes the spots on the papers.
    Have a good weekend.

  6. Lovely card Val. Especially like the way you've changed the sizing on the backing paper. Must say I do love this's one that until you see it being used you would overlook.

  7. Hi Val, I hope that you are feeling better now. Thanks so much for joining in Forgotten Friday this week. I have those same Stampin Up greetings, they are a great set. The dotty papers are great intwo different sizes, and I like the use of the blue and green matting that you've used with them. I have neglected those flower stamps too. So many stamps, not enough time!
