Everyone is welcome to join in with The Funkie Junkie challenge which closes on 21st December by which time you need to have submitted all 12 creations using Linda's tags for inspiration. You can make anything at all. The full rules are over on her blog here . Linda offers 3 very generous prizes of gift vouchers to spend in her terrific on line shop, The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Do have a look at the link here .
Here is the inspiration tag which Linda has made for week 4.
I was inspired by the "primitive" look to Linda's tag and the simple colouring. I also thought the inked border cut with pinking shears looked great so I wanted to use this on my card. Her shiny embossed heart looked fun and I remembered I have a great "primitive heart" punch I could make some with. I also really liked the green, red and browns she used with her stencil.
So armed with my ideas from her tag I got down to business in my studio after work on Monday. I used Kraft cardstock.
I cut the edge with my pinking shears and masked off the border which I coloured with festive berries DI. My inking was not perfectly straight but I decided, as I have such limited crafting time, that it added to the "primitive" feel to my card (well that's my excuse).
Next it was time to put on my creative hat and put together my card. Here is my finished creation;

I would like to thank everyone for the really kind and really touching comments you left on my last "Poppies" post and my tribute to my Grandad. I think it makes us appreciate that we really must seize the day, no matter how the much the path we walk can twist and turn as we make our way along it. Above all life needs to be cherished and enjoyed to the full.
Another weekend is fast approaching. We actually have a free one so I hope to get some more sorted out in the garden as after this we have a rather full diary ahead and the countdown to Christmas really will begin.
Bye for now,
