Challenge #23 - Metal Mania !

Many thanks to everyone for showing us all "your fancy edges " ! It's always great to see how we each interpreted a theme in such different ways which then spurs further ideas and inspiration. This week we have decided to use the services of Mr to pick the lucky winner of the Softpencil digi images and "drum roll please" . . . .

Please could you email Elizabeth (owner & artist at Soft Pencil) directly to claim your digi image prize. Please ensure that you put "Fab 'n' Funky" challenge winner in the subject line. Well done Katie from us all at "F'n'F".

Now this week we are very lucky to be sponsored by

Here is a little about Di:

I started my digi site last year in December and now have
about 50 images on my site. The inspiration came from my daughter, her cuddly toy Kaboodle and my sons favourite cuddly toy Cookie.MY work is hand drawn then digitally enhanced and converted to download. I don’t have the best graphics tablet and software and my images are very much hand drawn with not so great straight lines but i hope this adds to their character.These digi stamps only cost $2.00 are instantly downloadable, no waiting.

Please take a peek at my site.

So how can you win yourself some of Di's great images . . . well of course enter this weeks challenge which is . . .

"Metal Mania"

Now your touch of metal could be from a charm, paper clip, safety pin, metal embellishment or even your image painted / coloured with metallic paints or pens. Sometimes the theme titles can be a little daunting but hey, there is always an easy way round the theme!

As always the DT have been busy creating and here is their inspiration . . .






Hope everyone has a brilliant week and we can't wait to see what you use to add the "metal" touch to your card.
