Don’t get in a flap!

This week at Craft Your Passion we want you to Use the ‘F’ Word!That means any crafty ideas or embellishments that start with that letter – and not what you were thinking!! We have the fabby Kenny K as our sponsor too.So head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

I’ve used Teen Idol from Kenny K and coloured him with ProMakers.I’ve strung a whole load of ‘F’ words together for my card – Flap card,faux stitching,faux buttons,foam,felt and frames.I’ve adapted the measurements from the Flap card tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers to make a slightly bigger version.I made the sentiment myself on the ‘puter.

Altho’ his Birthday’s not til December I’ve made this card for my DS1.I did have a little problem as my DS2 saw it after I’d made it and thought it was for him because his teacher picked him as Star of the Week for his work in Literacy.Not bad as they’ve only just gone back to school!  I feel a ‘Proud Mummy Moment’ coming on.
