Getting into Shape

Enfys has set the May challenge over on "Get Funky" (the challenge blog for Funky Hand ) and asked us to make Shaped Cards this month, she says:
"I thought we could have some fun with
any size, any shape, as long as it's not one of the standard rectangle/squares
The rules are simple, make your project using at least one Funky Hand Product, give us a link to your blog so that we can come and see your creation, and get your entry in before midnight on the 31st May 2010
The winner will get a £20 Funky Hand voucher, and there will be coveted blog blinkies for the runners up"
 As long as you remember to use some Funky Hand products - and there's even a freebie set to download which makes a great taster for you to try FH stuff out - you can be in with a chance of winning that voucher.

You can see what the rest of the design team made by visiting the BLOG, but here's my card;
This was the second attempt at making the watering can (Dreams Come True CD).  The first was just the can itself and it wouldn't stand up -  ooops! - I forgdot to take into account the whole balancing thing.  I never was any good at mathematical stuff.  So for version 2 I had to include a bit of garden for the can to stand on hehehe
Papers and flowers in the watering can : Shabby Saturday downloadable collection  
Watering can and it's flower decoration: digi-images from the Dreams Come True CD.  
  If you've visited my blog over the last few months you'll have seen quite a few more of the digi images from this CD converted for cutting out with dear old Craft Robo, this time I also made the flowers from Shabby Saturday extras sheet Robo-cutable.
I used green Bazzill for the background and hand-cut the "grass" and the leaves.  The little flowers are punched from scraps of the papers.
There are brand new image downloads  available from Funky Hand this week - if you like flowers and butterflies you'll love this little collection - just perfect for Summer projects.  Tomorrow I'll show the things I've made with them so far, but if you go to the Funky Hand SHOP you can see all the images you get in the download and buy it too, of course!

We're having a lot of "weather" here today, blazing sunshine, pelting down rain, it's a bit chilly and it's very blustery....Ahhhh, of course! it must be a Bank Holiday Monday.  
Hope you're enjoying it, despite the weather.
