Look!Up in the sky!

It’s a bird!It’s a plane!No it’s Super…um…dad!

We’d love to see your Male cards/projects at Craft Your Passion this week.We have the fab Dude Time Doodles as our sponsor and they’re giving away a $10 Gift certificate to spend in their store.Check the challenge blog for full details on how to play and don’t forget to take a look at the wonderful DT and GDT’s work while you’re there!

For my project I’ve chosen to make a wordbook using Henry Hero.Even tho’ I’ve had the Dreams Come True Papercraft Factory CD-rom by Funky Hand since it first came out this is the first time I’ve made one of these.Not sure what Anice & co would make of this.This kind of stuff is a little new to me.It’s going to be for my DH’s Birthday in a few weeks.I know a lot of people usually make this kind of thing for Father’s Day but I thought why wait ’til then? 

Here are some more pics including a close up of the image on the cover:

 I added Glossy Accents  to give him a healthy head of  hair and shiny teeth and drew in white gel pen highlights.

I sourced a Dad poem from the net and made a rosette from a squashed beer bottle cap,a Nestie cut piece of card and some ribbon.

 I took this photo at Stanwick Lakes when he was showing off to the kids!Thought the sentiment was pretty apt!

 One of my favourite snow pics.I know it doesn’t have much to do with the play but the words just popped into my head.

 I just had to choose this photo from our holiday last year (they only took their hats off to be snapped).We went on a walk through some beautiful Devonshire countryside which ended with some crab fishing in a secluded bay.Don’t worry we put them all back when we’d finished.Did you know the best bait is bacon?!

 I’ve added some extras on the back.I fashioned a pocket on the right.These used up some of the leftovers.

 A selection of treats! I even decorated the backs.I coloured the images with pencil after forgetting that Promarkers bleed through and ruining the first teacup one I made –  oooops!!

Hope DH appreciates the work I put into this and likes it!!Hope you like it too.

    Hi Lisa

    This is a truly fabby wordbook – you have clearly put a lot of thought and hardwork into it…. To say its your first time at making one – you’ve done a great job… aren’t they easy to make… the challenge with them is what to put in… (Anice) Funky Hand has designed all the hard work to make them easy peasy for us to use!

    I bet your other half is going to be blown away when he gets this!

    Thank you for joining in with the Funky Hand ‘Get Funky’ challenge this month! Good luck too.

    Paula, FH DT Member!

    Congratulations on making top three in the Funky Hand challenge! I’ve not really explored the word book part of either of the CD’s I’ve got either. The one I did make I found quite difficult to embellish, maybe I should have another go…
