Simply Create Too Challenge 27 Midway Extra - Give Thanks

We're at the Midway part of our Simply Create Too Challenge and its also our First Birthday!!  And to celebrate we are having a little online party and have some fab blog candy up for grabs!  There are three parts to being in it to win it, so pop over to Simply Create Too to find out more!!

The theme for the last week is:

Give Thanks

And I'm lucky enough to be part of the very fab Funky Hand Design Team and I asked Anice if she would consider a prize for our First Birthday and she said yes!  So there is also a Funky Hand download of the winners choice, and I've used a download too to make this funky word book:

I've used the Retro Fun wordbook download, printed the letters off that I wanted onto some 220gsm card, cut them out and then arranged them like pages in a book.  Glittered around the edges of the letters and added some funky ribbon tied in funky bows and two beads from a rather pretty (but very cheap) bracelet from the Poundshop!

The cards look really effective but are pretty quick to make - probably about 45 mins in total plus drying time for the glitter.  Not bad eh?!  In the download you get the full A to Z alphabet plus numbers 0 to 9 plus 7 matching A4 sized papers! I use the A4 papers on the reverse of the letters so it all looks 'finished'.

Good luck with the challenge and don't forget to answer our questions over on Simply Create Too!
