Roll up, Roll up for Funky Hand News..

What a whirlwind we have been in here at Funky Hand Towers this last week. Working on the finishing touches to the new CD seems to have taken up every minute of my time. I have to admit to working 12 hour shifts recently. Phew! No wonder I'm tired and also that's my excuse for not being here for a while.

Firstly I have some very sad news to share, Carol has left the Funky Hand Design Team Gang. We are all very sorry to see her go but as she is now a Stamping Up Demonstrator and they have just changed their terms about what activities their demos can undertake with other craft companies Carol had to say goodbye to us. We will all miss her loads but wish her every success with her Stamping Up business. I'll be back very soon to tell you all about some wonderful new crafters that will be joining our design gang. I'll keep that info to myself for just a little longer.

Whilst everything here has been focused on getting the new CD finished I completely forgot about my contribution to the free CD that is attached to the latest edition of Complete Card Making with your PC magazine available in all good shops now!

There are 32 papers and extras included on the free CD from my craft CD Funky Seasons so if you haven't tried any of my papers yet then why not give that mag a's full of loads of really great card ideas and the CD has loads of other items included on it as well as the Funky Hand stuff so if you are into a bit of digital crafting it's definately the magazine for you.

Now today is 29th October so you still have a few days left to take advantage of the special 10% discount that I am offering just to my blog readers. Just use the code 10JUST4U when you check out on my website to get the discount, but you've only got until the 31st so grab it now!

Another thing that is ending on 31st is our latest challenge at Get Funky! join in with Allisons Halloween challenge and you could be the winner of the £20.00 voucher prize. A new challenge will be launched on there on the 1st November which Enfys is hosting so remember to pop over and take a look at the great DT cards.

I'll be back with more info on the new CD, DT members and the mountain of other news that I have to share with you.. Speak again very soon

Well Fancy That!

It's been far too long since I last spoke to you but things are, as always, rather mad here at Funky Hand Towers at the moment.

We are still working away on getting the new CD release ready for launch. As I've said before I'm really excited about sharing more about it with you and you'll be the first to hear when the release date has been set. I promise it will have been worth waiting for..Ian has done a fantastic job with the new navigation and I just know you are going to love all the new functionality and little extras.

Even though we are really busy you do have to have a little bit of time off now and again so, to give you a little laugh I thought I would share some photos from a fancy dress party that Ian and I attended last weekend for a friends 40th birthday. The theme was heros and heroines. I went as my heroine Anne Boleyn and Ian as Captain Morgan (of the rum fame!!)

We attended the party with Ians parents who went back to their youth and dressed up as Mary Quant and Paul McCartney (from the Sarg Pepper Album cover)

and finally here's Ian and I with our friend Joanna, or should I say Queen Cleopatra..

We had great fun! I of course had to do a little bit of crafting to add to my outfit and attached to the pearls around my neck a small letter B like in the pictures you always see of Anne Boleyn. Well, after hand cutting it out of card I decided it needed a bit of glitter so I covered it with gold glitter and attached it to the necklace with craft wire. I have been finding gold glitter all over me ever since! It just never seems to wash off!!

Oh, and before I go don't forget to join in with this months Halloween challenge over at the Get Funky! Challenge Blog, don't miss out on your chance to win £20.00 to spend on my website

Speak again very soon

Happy World Card Making Day!

It seems we actually have a day especially for our card making passion which is today 3rd October so, I thought I'd join in a little and give you a peek at a card I have made for my cousin Katies birthday that I've used papers from my next craft CD release that we are still working on getting ready for launch... want a little look? Well go on then..


These papers are from a collection called Free Romance from the new CD. I can't wait to be able to tell you all about it..but you'll have to wait for just a little while longer.

Enjoy your card making day!

October Challenge on Get Funky!

I can't believe that another month has gone by since the last challenge on the Funky Hand Design Gang blog Get Funky! Where does the time go to?

We had some fabby entries again this month and I want to say a very big thank you to everyone who took the time to join in with us. I know all the Funky Hand Design Team loved visiting your blogs and seeing your fabby creations. There can only be one winner each month of see who Ruth decided was the worthy winner for September pop over to Get Funky! While you are there you will also see this months new challenge for October.

Octobers challenge has been set by Allison and it's to make a Halloween card or project. You can make anything you like, all you need to remember is that there needs to be just one Funky Hand paper or extra included on your creation and you could be Octobers winner of a £20.00 voucher to spend on Funky Hand goodies on my website

Right, I suppose you want to see what I came up with for this 'spooky' challenge..

Now I'm terrified of spiders so I think that is why I decided to make my Halloween card with one on..if I met a spider that big I'd run a mile!! The card was great fun to make. I just printed out a paper from the Pumpkin Patch collection from my Now That's Funky CD onto white card and cut it to size to fit on the square card base. Then using my rather poor sewing abilities I sewed a bit of a random web onto the card. Luckily spiders webs don't have to be perfect..and this one certainly isn't.but I had more fun doing it than I have had for ages making a card! Once the web was finished..which I did whilst watching the TV..Ian was amazed that I was sewing anything he watched me rather than the TV!! (I think you might be getting the picture that I'm not too hot on the domestic, sewing, cooking sort of side of things !) I then added the spider which is just a large black bazzill button with two little stick on pearls for eyes and black stitching for his legs. I added the BOO! from the matching alphabet to the paper collection and then attached the whole thing to the white base card with foam pads. Of course everything had a good rub of black ink pad around the edges to give it that grubby, Halloween feel.

Well I hope you will be inspired to join in with us for this challenge over at Get Funky! and there are plenty of fab examples from the Design Team for you to have a look go on Get Spooky! this month

Speak again very soon.
