Getting Funky With The Funky Hand!

This week's challenge has been very kindly sponsored by Anice, the designer behind the fabulous Funky Hand - and how excited were we to be able to download one of her wonderful collections to try out for ourselves.
Some of the Design Team have never used downloadable papers and images, so it was a real trip into the unknown for some!

We've used a lovely collection called "Shabby Saturday" for this week's dare along with a template to work with, so that even if you don't have the same papers, you can still join in using your own stash>
Funky Hand has a wide range of design collections available for a very reasonable download price. You get lots of different designs that all work together perfectly so it's easy to make beautifully co-ordinated cards and projects. As well as the papers there are images, alphabets and sentiments, all there ready for you to print and get busy creating with. If like some of us, you've never tried this sort of thing, well give it a go - it's not nearly as tricky or scary as we thought :)
....and, oh yes, there's more.....
We're having one of our wonderful Lucky Dips this week, because Anice has very generously offered a prize of a free set of "Shabby Saturday" downloads - all you need to do to have a chance of winning this fantastic prize is to join in with this dare, then come back and let us know where we can see your card. Everyone who joins in has an equal chance of winning, all the names go into the DCM "Virtual Hat" and a name is drawn at random - what more incentive do you need? hehehe

So here's your template, you can use your own papers, or why not download some from Funky Hand to have a play with.

This is what our team came up with using their yummy papers and the template. We can't wait to see how you get on with this one, and remember. this week there's a PRIZE!!!
Please leave a message with your blog link so we can come and see, we do love to see how you get on with our dares.
Have fun
