Oh please let it be me!!! I love Funky Hand CD's and I love the shows with Anice on Create and Craft. I love the way the papers on the CDs make you think outside the Box. Here are a few cards I would like to be used as consideration for the DT call. Some using Funky Hand papers and others are not but they are all cards I just really love that I'm proud of.
