"Funky" Christmas...

Given the very traditional Christmas design, I use the term "funky" advisedly, as what I mean is, it uses papers from Funky Hand!! Ha! ;o)

The papers are all from the 'Funky Christmas Time' download available from the Funky Hand web-site, HERE.

But even more exciting than that (if it ever could get more exciting than that! lol), is that the layout is based on the debut sketch by my very talented Funky Hand design team mate, Carol! This lady is one of my crafting heroines, and I hurry to open any new posts on her blog. She has posted her first sketch challenge (with blog candy!) HERE.

May I suggest taking some 'me' time... make yourself a lovely mug of something warm... relax, and take some time to browse Carol's great blog... before you dash off to make your card for her challenge! You will not be disappointed, I guarantee it.

Anyway, her sketch is on the left... and here is my card based on it.
