Preview of our new CD Happy Happy Birthday

It's been quiet a long time coming but finally in a few days we will be able to release our new craft CD ROM  Happy Happy Birthday. Infact it's been seven months in the making..I was a little ill so that is why it wasn't out earlier..but then don't they say 'if something is worth having it's worth waiting for?'

Well, I hope you feel that way about Happy Happy Birthday when you get to see it. What we have decided to do this time is to let you have a good look at the CD BEFORE we release it.  If you pop over to our website www.funkyhand.com you will find a Happy Happy Birthday page already all there complete with card idea gallery and a video run through of the CD put together by my wonderful other half Ian..enjoy his Geordie tones on the voice over!!

We hope to be able to release the CD for sale on the 10th September and then give you a few live demonstrations on Create and Craft TV shows on the 15th September at 9am and 4pm.  I'll keep you completely up to date on everything right here.

So pop over and take a look at the new CD, I hope you like what you see !
Speak again very soon

On the new CD ROM front I'm pleased to let you know that my next CD Happy Happy Birthday will be available in September..there might even be some TV dates on the Create and Craft TV channel mentioned on this blog if you are eagle eyed about looking!!  I'll be back with more information about that very soon.  I'm really excited about you seeing this new CD and my Design Team are loving using it.  They are creating the most amazing things using it, as usual!!

Time for a new Get Funky Challenge

I know I say it every month but..I can't believe that it's the Funky 15th again and time for a new challenge over of the Funky Hand Design Team challenge Blog Get Funky!.

Firstly I'd like to say thank you to everyone who took part in Ruths Boys Boys Boys challenge last month and congratulations to our winners..pop over to the Get Funky challenge blog to see if you were one of them!

But now it's time for a new challenge and this month Paula is in charge and she has decided on a very appropriate theme for this time of the year..By the Seaside 

Here is just one of the images that Paula has given us to get us started on the challenge this morning..go over there to see all the other details she has on this card.

Isn't it just fab? I love it..oh and if your interested the bucket and spade and Sun image that you can see are digital stamps that are included on the Funky Hand craft CD ROM Craft The Year Away.  As always I have included a Funky Freebie on my website www.funkyhand.com to help you join in with the challenge if you don't own any Funky Hand products. All crafters are always welcome but there is just one rule, please use at least one Funky Hand product on your challenge entry.

Right that's about it for today.  Just time for a little update on the new Funky Hand CD release  Happy Happy Birthday, it's in it's final stages of completion and will be with the manufacturers very shortly.  Once I have a release date you will know about it as I will be shouting it from the roof tops!!

It's been rather a long time since our last CD was released due to a bout of illness that I had (darn MS!) earlier in the year which put my designing right back grrrr.  Anyway it's on it's way and I'm very excited about sharing it with you and my Design Team who are all chomping at the bit to get their hands on early copies of it!!

Right, best get back to work and I look forward to seeing you over on Get Funky stretching your crafting legs with Paulas By the Seaside challenge.

Speak again very soon.

Lottie Dog working at Funky Hand!

No crafting today I'm afraid just a picture of Lottie the Dog, who belongs to our friends Andy & Vic.  Due to circustances out of her control poor Lottie had to come stay with Ian and I for four days..now she's a good little thing, very well behaved and sweet as a button.

But, I don't think she enjoyed working at Funky Hand much!  When I was in the office she came with me and it was pretty boring for her..she ended up sitting under my desk just looking up at me most of the day with those 'take me for a walk' eyes.  When I ignored her she gently nudged my leg..for HOURS!

It's a shame she didn't like crafting I could have kept her busy but only walkies would do!  Ian thinks he wants a dog but..I think he will be waiting a while, unless he can find one who likes making cards as well!!

Sneek peek of the new Funky Hand CD ROM

I said last week that I'd be giving you a little sneaky look at the next Funky Hand CD Rom release Happy Happy Birthday in the near future..and here that time is!!  I had to wait until now as this card is my Moms Birthday card and I wanted her to have received it before I was showing it all over my blog!!

The base card is made from a paper from the new CD..and the topper is made from one of the over ONE HUNDRED digital stamps that will be available on this craft CD ROM.  There is something on this CD for every birthday card you will ever need to make..all with the usual Funky edge!!

I coloured in the YUMMY with Promarker pens but the two cup cakes that I added are pre coloured ones, there are un coloured versions on the CD as well if you like to colour them yourselves.  Here's a closer look at the cupcakes..all I did was add a little sparkle to them with glitter sakura pens. (Which hasn't shown up that well on the pictures!)

I'm so excited about letting you see a little hint of what you will be able to expect from our next CD release.  It should be available to buy on our website www.funkyhand.com towards the end of August..but I'll keep you posted.

I imagine I will be able to tell you about dates you will be able to see it and me on the Create and Craft TV channel as well pretty soon.

Hope you like what you see!
