Get Bright & Funky!

This is my card for Get Funky's August challenge, which was a sketch. In real life it's really bright and zingy but the pic's a little subdued.

I've been lent a CraftRoo to have a play with it as the lady who owns it is getting rid of it & kindly let me have a "try before you buy", I'm not the most patient of people and I nearly gave up before I began as the disk wouldn't even load on my computer and the instruction booklet is not the most user friendly I've come across. However I persevered and am glad I did as I'm starting to get some great results now and the "hello" on this card has been cut using the Robo. As well as cutting out words, it can also cut around an image and I just have to show you what I did last night. I printed out a coloured digi-stamp from Bee Crafty and then got the Robo to cut it out and if you look closely I hope you can see how amazing the cut is and it's even cut out the balloon string! I've taken the pic on my hand so you can see how small it is - I could never, ever cut that out by hand, I was well impressed!

Anyway, back to the card, here's the recipe:

Papers - All FunkyHand from the Funky Seasons CD
C/stock - Stampin' Up! Yoyo Yellow & Whisper White
Flower & button - from my stash

Fantastic card Jan, love the polka dot papers and the lettering :) I used to have a Craft Robo but sold it and bought a Cricut Expression instead...I still miss the Robo when I see pictures like yours that remind of how easily it cuts out images, have lots of fun Jan :) Donna x

Hiya Jan! Great work with the robo, I ended up getting rid of mine because I couldn't get it to do a clean cut....I do miss it though.
I love your card, I have almost all of Anice's cdroms, the papers are delish and can be used for all occasions.....didn't know there was a challenge blog though, gonna go seek it out :0)

Hi Jan I love your card nice and cheery. I love my Robo and use him loads. I don't use him to his full potential though 'cause I've not had time to digest the instructions. Have fun.
xx Vee

I do like bold bright cards and these papers are so sunny! And that is very good cutting! It would have taken me an age! Thanks for entering the Get Funky! Challenge – hope you can join us again next month! Get Funky!
