Hope you've enjoyed your weekend..

We've been pretty busy here with you all going a bit mad with our Easter sale!  Thank you to everyone who visited this Bank holiday weekend you've kept us very busy. I'm going to have to get a fast order in for some more promarkers and other stash items.. I'm all sold out!!

I know it's a little late but I wanted to send you a nice bright Easter card to say thanks and here's to a lovely Spring and Summer heading our way!

This card was made using my latest craft CD ROM release Craft The Year Away.  I took advantage of the coloured eggs image on the CD and just added a little Glossy Accents to make them nice and tasty looking!! I know it's a really simple card but I think that with just a few little bits of doodling you can make a card quickly but fun.

As I've said loads of times before recently I'm working away on our next craft CD ROM release and it's starting to come together nicely now.  I'll keep you informed about when you will be able to see it..but expect a few new backing paper download collections to be released in the near future to keep you crafting while you have to wait for me to finish designing new backing papers.  This new Funky Hand craft CD will be one to grab I promise !!

So, before I sign off I wanted to remind you to remember to pop over to the Funky Hand Design Teams Get Funky! Challenge Blog and be inspired by the wonderful card creations that the DT members are sharing with us every few days over the month.  This months challenge theme is Spots and Stripes and we would love to see your crafty creations.  If you win the challenge you will get to choose a free Funky Hand Download Collection as your prize.  So go on, have a read of the challenge Blog and join in with us..we'd love to have you!!

Speak again very soon,

Spots and Stripes New Get Funky Challenge

Hello again, can you believe that another month has flown by and it's time for a new challenge over on the Get Funky Challenge Blog.

But first I'd like to say thank you to everyone who created wonderful entries for last months challenge and to congratulate all the winners. WELL DONE!  Thank you so much for joining in, we all love seeing what you are inspired to create each month.

Right now for this months challenge. Debs is our hostess this month and her challenge is for you to create anything that you like using SPOTS AND STRIPES. Who doesn't like using spots and stripes in their crafting? So we are expecting some fab entries this month!  Here's Debs card to get you going...

How's that for a little different?  The butterflies have been cut from papers from the Funky Hand Dreams Come True CD ROM and our latest spotty download collection Rainbow Polka Dots.  There will be new entries on the the Get Funky challenge blog every few days over the next month from the Funky Hand DT members to get your mojo flowing so remember to call back often.  All you need to remember to do when entering the challenge to be considered for the winners prize of a Funky Hand download collection of your choice is that you include at least one Funky Hand paper, stamp image or extra on your creation.  Don't worry if you don't own any Funky Hand stuff yet as there is a freebie Funky Hand backing paper on our website each month to help you. (Grab it before the 14th May as it will be changed to a new one for next months challenge then)

This month is a very bright stripey paper which matches the colours on the Rainbow Polka Dot download collection.  I hope you can join in with us this month.

What else has been going on here at Teapot Studios..well I'm working away on new backing paper designs for our next CD ROM release which should be ready for you to have a look at May/June time.  That's if I can get everything done in time!!  I'm hoping to be able to get sat down infront of my craft table very soon as I've been so busy with business things I've not had a chance to craft for ages.  Hopefully I'll be back with some of my creations to share with you very soon!

Right, no rest for the wicked, I have to get back to designing.
I'll speak to you again very soon.

Bad Bad Blogger !

Wow, I can't believe how quickly time is going by this year.  This of course could be my excuse for being such a terrible blogger but really it's much more because of my terrible health recently. I'm not going to bore you with all the details except to say..having MS and epilepsy sucks and I wouldn't recommend either to any of you!!

So, here I am trying to catch up a bit and let you know that I am still around!  I'm working on the next Funky Hand CD Rom release and I'll be back soon to give you lots more information on how I'm getting on and what you can expect from the next edition from the Papercraft Factory range.  There are ALOT of things going on here at the moment that I think I hinted at in my last post..but it was so long ago I can't remember!!  Well..things are moving on pretty quickly so I'll be giving you more info about all the stuff going on here in the Funky Hand camp when all the loose ends are tied up.

Whilst I have been in my sick bed my Design Team have been keeping everything rocking and rolling over on the Get Funky Challenge Blog with some amazing card creations for this months challenge.  If you haven't been over there to get some inspiration..WHY NOT?  You might even be inspired to join in and have the chance of winning a free Funky Hand download collection of your choice..well to give you a taste here are a few pictures of the wonderful cards the Funky Hand girls have been sharing with us..

First up is Debs fab pleated flower card...

Next are Janes fab mini cards. She is so good at making these little gems!

Ruth shared a fabby card next with us this month using a couple of stamps from the Our Betty Your special Day that's the size of pressie I would like to receive!

Faye shared her wonderful Flower card next which she used this months Funky Hand Freebie backing paper on..if you haven't grabbed this free paper from yet you had better get over there as it will be gone on the 14th April and replaced with a new one for next months challenge..

 Today it's Jennys turn to get us all inspired on the Get Funky! Challenge blog and she is proving to be the queen of making cards with space and elegance.. I definately could do with learning from her about that!!

I'm really hoping that this latest bout of illness will be the last for a while so I can get right back on track with everything that is planned for the next few months with Funky Hand and if I'm to catch up I can't hang around here chatting!! Enjoy your crafting!

Speak again very soon.
