More inspiration from Get Funky!

I thought I would just share with you the wonderful card that Kathy has posted on the Funky Hand Design Team Challenge blog Get Funky that is her contribution to this months challenge set by Lou 'Zing into Spring'
Isn't it just fab?  She has created it using the latest Funky Hand craft CD Craft The Year Away and if you pop over to the Get Funky! Challenge blog you will be able to see exactly how she created it.

Then with all that inspiration get to your crafting spot and make a card to enter the challenge! Each month the winner gets to choose a Funky Hand download as their prize.  All you have to remember to do to be in with a chance of winning the prize is that your card, scrap page or whatever your creation is, needs to have at least one Funky Hand backing paper or extra on it.  Now, if you don't have any Funky Hand backing papers don't worry because you can still join in because I provide a free Funky Hand backing paper to download from my website each month which will be relevant to the challenge that month. Just go to the download section on the website and you will find it there. So you've no excuse not to have a go now!

The 25% discount sale on our download collections over on finished last night and it was a big success, so thank you to everyone who came over and took advantage of the discount.  I hope you are enjoying using your download collections.

I'll speak to you again very soon

New Get Funky Challenge has launched

Oops I'm a bit late as the Get Funky Challenge launch on the 15th.  Lou is in charge this month and she has asked us to 'Zing into Spring' so lots of greens, yellows and lilacs to liven up our crafting.  It is my turn today to share my card for the's not that zingy I have to admit but I still like it and I hope you do as well...

The papers and the digital stamp are all from my latest CD ROM Craft the Year Away.  I'm going to be recording a video to add to my website on how I made this card so keep your eye on here and I'll let you know when it's available to watch.

I'm afraid my health is a bit rough at the moment so I'm working from home today..which is great because I'm writing this blog post in my PJs!! Shocking I know!  But it means that I am away from my craft stash as it's in the office :( That means just one thing..designing all day which is not a bad thing I have to admit!! :)  I'm working hard on the next Funky Hand CD and I'm sure this one will be of interest to alot of you..that's all I'm saying for now..because I'm a tease, but it's going to be fun!

Right so, you've seen my card for this months Get Funky! Challenge..get yourself over there to take a look at Lous opening card as it's just fab and then call back every couple of days as the Design Team update the blog with new posts all month long.  Oh and then the most important thing JOIN IN!!  We love seeing your creations..and don't forget, not having any Funky Hand papers is no excuse for not getting involved as there is a new freebie paper especially for this challenge on my website

New Polka Dot Download Released

Name me a crafter who can survive with out a few polka dot papers?  Well I know I can't so, that's why I thought it was time to release a download that fed those dotty needs!  So yesterday we released a brand new download that contains 26 rainbow coloured dotty papers called Rainbow Polka Dots..inspired name I know!!  You will find it on our website for just £3.49

I thought I'd show you a couple of the fab cards that my Design Team members have created using the papers..

Kathy has created some fantastic funky flowers that just jump off the card!
Jane has used the different colours to create this really striking birthday card.  With one of her amazing flowers..I so wish I could get the hang of doing these.  I suppose I have to just keep trying!!
To see even more wonderful creations by my Design Team with this new Rainbow Polka Dot Download Collection pop over to my website and take a good look at the gallery attached to the page.  They are an amazing group of crafters and I'm so very lucky to have them working with me.

Unfortunately I'm not to well at the moment..have some sort of gland infection in my neck so I'm writing this from my sick bed..well the kitchen table at home actually!!  But poor old Corrina is in Teapot studios on her own today..I bet she will have all my craft stash out and have a play! When the cats away the mice will play as they say.. not that I mind at all. I'm just pleased she seems to have got the crafting bug..ha ha another unsuspecting none crafter pulled in!!

I'll be back very soon to tell you all about the Create and Craft shows that I will be presenting next week (hence the trying to get better as soon as possible!)

I should be ashamed!

I haven't been here to have a chat for days..and over those days my DT ladies have been working up a storm on the Get Funky! Challenge Blog.  I thought I'd share some quick pictures of their makes here if you haven't been on there the last few days to give you a taster of the great creations they are sharing..First up is Debs.

Then next..being a little cheeky is Jane..

finally so far this month is Ruths fab handbag card..

All of the cards have been made using various Funky Hand papers and digi stamps which you can find for sale on my website  Though I highly recommend you go over to the Get Funky! challenge blog and take a closer look, and then why not join in? Everyone is welcome!!

Ok, now for my excuses for not blogging as regularly as I had promised myself at the beginning of the New Year.  I just haven't stopped recently with the release of our Craft The Year Away CD and preparing for the shows that I've done with it on the Create and Craft TV channel with it.

We have been preparing some video content for the making cards etc..which has been fun, and we hope to be able to share them in the very near future, so keep an eye out and I'll let you know when you can have a laugh at them here when they are available.  I have also been working on a new download which will be available soon as well..are you seeing a theme here yet? We are doing loads but it's taking some time to get everything ready for release!!  HeHe!  It's will all come together soon.  Oh, I've also started work on the next CD release and I'm really pleased with the papers so far. You should be seeing that in May time (fingers crossed!) 

So there you are I've shared the great creations from the DT on Get Funky! and made my pathetic excuses.  Hopefully next time I'll be back with something I've created..but I wouldn't hold your breath!!

Speak again real soon
