Good morning,

How are we all today? All okay here and ready to share with you another of the forgotten funkies from the wonderful Funkyhand
We are re-visiting my 1st Funkyhand cdrom - Funky Daze which had the very first wordbooks on it, which I fell in love with straight away. 
All the funkettes are sharing their makes over at Get funky and craft blog so why not pop over for a nosey, I know I will be.The paper collections are fab and you can buy it now for £1.

I decided to make 2 mini 4 x 4 cards.


Well I'm hoping for a couple of deliveries today as I went shopping with Shannen on tuesday and bought a couple of dresses to try for a christening this Sunday but they don't fit so I've ordered the next size in a couple and a few others.Fingers crossed. Shannen is Godmother so I'm really looking forward to it.

Catch up soon.

Keep in touch....


I'm here to tell you about a fantastic new release from Funkyhand called Keep in Touch and wow is it a fun, vibrant and usable download.

This download consists of zingy backing papers and 2 topper sheets for £2.49..The speech bubbles are fab.I recently sent my 13 year old nephew the easel card below and he loved it, bless him.The speech bubble toppers are so easy to cut out.I increased one of the backing papers to make my own mobile phone topper.

So why not treat yourself to this fabulous download from the talented Anice.
You won't be able to resist playing with it, so nice to keep in touch with all your friends and family.Texts are nice but a card means alot more.


Have a lovely day.

For the one you love

Hello again,
It's new challenge time over at Ruby's Rainbow and it's Helen's turn to choose the theme of:
'For the one you love'

We'd love you to pop over to us at Ruby's Rainbow to see what the rest of the teamies have created as well as joining in with the challenge.
Here's my card that I made for my hubby using papers from Pink Petticoat:

Thank you for popping by and for all your lovely comments.
I love to hear what you think.

It's new challenge time over at Nutcrafters and the theme is:
'Halloween' chosen by Helen.

So here's a little wordbook I made using 1 of the Nutcrafters freebies called 'Halloween' it's a cute image and I've chosen the bits I wanted to use from it and snipped away.The papers are from the Funkyhand Spooky-dookie download-:

We'd love you to pop over to join in with us and to see what the rest of the teamies have made.

I've been busy crafting the last few days trying to madly catch up and to be on time with my DT work. The mouse body count is still climbing but at least the traps are doing their job - I've had no close encounters either thank goodness.

Big hugs

Winter Wishes


Wow it's a  wild and Sunny Sunday here in East Yorkshire. I am doing my post later than expected today but I've made it at last.

Today I wanted to make something for the people I send Winter Wishes cards to instead of Christmas cards. Just because they don't celebrate it, I still want them to know I'm thinking about them. I only make a couple or so of these a year. Now when I started I knew what paper download I wanted to use and that I wanted to make a couple of cards using the same items. I like to challenge myself now and again.So here they are:

The paper download is 1 of my favourites called Winter wonderland .
All I printed out was 1 sheet of A4 with 2 papers on it, the rest were from 
my bits folder. Some twine, 1 set of snowflake dies and liquid pearls instead of gems etc.

Why not pop over to our Inspiration blog - Get funky and craft and share some of your Funkyhand makes or views with us there or on our Facebook page.

Now the reason I am late with my post is we've had mice in the kitchen. Discovered on Friday evening when I popped in the kitchen after my nice shower and 1 shot across the skirting boards.A few screams later and hubby set the traps.Caught the little one and 2 more in the traps today. Cleaned my kitchen floor after Friday nights discovery as I felt grubby, some time later went in the cupboard for the iron to find droppings everywhere, grabbed hubby - they'd only been munching on his pork scratchings - eek..... had to empty and scrub everything down. So my crafting fell by the wayside yesterday.

Anyway done lots of crafting today in my sunny conservatory.


Enjoy your Sunday evening.

Snow much fun......

Hi there,

How are we all today? Hope it's not been too wild for you.
I've done a bit of crafting over the last couple of days. I had an order for a 21st birthday card which I've got ready to be picked up later.

Anyway enough from me it's Midway reminder time over at Nutcrafters
with the theme of 'Winter Weather' so here's another make giving you a peak at another new image from Katie.I love this Snowman, so cute.

Don't forget you've got another week to join in the challenge and the DT will love you to pop over to see what they've been making too.


Thanks for popping by and for your lovely comments.

Have a great day whatever you've got planned.

Evening all,

I've had an afternoon of colouring and enjoyed a little bit of crafting while I caught up on the X Factor. It's been a gorgeous day even if abit wild. Lots of washing dried though.

Here's a card I made following the sketch below:

I sponged some yellow ink with some cut & dry foam on my base card and inked around the layers.

Anyway best get a move on as hubby is chomping at the bit for the laptop.

Have a nice night and thank you for popping to see me.
