Hello.....

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.

Challenges:

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....

Morning,

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.

Challenges:

Have a lovely day.

Winter Wishes

Afternoon,


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.

Challenges:

Enjoy your Sunday evening.

One Special Daughter

Evening all,

Have you all had a nice weekend? I hope so! I've had a lazy weekend resting up as I've been so busy crafting this week, got my hair done on Thursday then Shan took me to meet my Dad for coffee at Costa so I didn't get home till 4:40 and I still had my daughters birthday card to do for the next day.So needless to say it was a busy night - good job I knew what I was going to do.I also still had pressies to wrap.

On Friday we went out for breakfast then I went out to the pub where she works a few days a week for a few drinks with her and her friends as they were throwing her a party. Wow it was a fun night. She had a ball.
Here's her card:

Can't believe she's 20......


That's all from me for now.
Thanks for calling by to see me. We are still to do her birthday cake as she's been feeling rather ropey all weekend - bless, I wonder why???

 It's new challenge time over at Nutcrafters and it's Jo's turn to chose the theme of:

My something new is the Nutcrafter's digital stamp, the cupcake charm and the hessian. I thought I'd put a fun sentiment on the gift bag as so many people can relate to 'Bake off.' A nice way to give xmas treats as a gift.

How was your weekend? - Mine was pretty busy as my lovely friends Sheila and Tom popped to see me on Saturday.Had a great time catching up and Tom gave me a helping hand to bring the washing in and to make up my bed - such a star. I was also given a set of 'the Spectrum Noir Essentials Pencil set. So kind.I love them. So spoilt.....
I've been crafting like mad making some samples for the show.All done now-phew.Great fun though.

Thank you for your get well wishes too.The shoulder is still misbehaving but the pain is abit easier.
