Funky Hand

These are some of the samples that I made from the new Craft the Year Away Cd from Funky Hand which you can find HERE
It is a wonderful CD full of lots of gorgeous papers, word books and a new work area where you can pull papers through and add your digi images and words and there are templates too, so you can see what it will all look like before you print it off- no need to run back through to add sentiments to the papers, you can do it all in one go.
And the amazing thing is it updates your other Papercraft Factory CD's to include the new features
I hope you managed to watch Create and Craft this morning at 10 am where the CD was released because Anice showed you all the wonderful things the CD could do - infact I'm off to play some with it, it's just wonderful

Moving Along With The Times

The quickest of posts from me tonight as I am off to bed but wanted to post this challenge card first- ooh three days in a row I've managed a challenge... wonder how long that will last!
And I am being naughty too as this is a sneaky peak at a image not released until Wednesday from Teri over at Delicious Doodles- isn't she wonderful
Moving Along With the Times has week has a sketch

and a theme of flowers so hence the flower overload
Right I'm off to bed now
good night

Kenny K

This is the sketch this week over at Kenny k

and this is my take on the sketch

The papers are Tim Holz papers and I just love this Kenny K image

This is Misty getting ready to relax after her morning at agility training- how I wish I could have just lay down beside her, am always tired after the training and she was very very good today- did the twelve pole weave today and she was going on the see saw no bother, so huge improvement all round then, she just needs an owner that can run round with her without needing oxygen at the end of it

Penny Black Challenge

Feel as if I've hardly had time lately to take part in any challenges so I wanted to do the Penny Black one today.
The plan had been to do this card this afternoon but I have a few orders to do so ended up doing a lot of them first, still have two to do but have no mojo for them just now as I kept on fiddling with others things today instead of getting the cards made- so will have to get the other two done tomorrow if I've got any energy left after agility.
The PB challenge this week is January Sales, so what I bought was the new nestie I used and also first time I've got round to using this cutesy hedgie stamp too
Very quick card from me as I'm off to pop open a bottle of wine open and see what's on the box- probably nothing!
Have some other stuff to do too but its hush hush at the mo but a little hint is that Anice is soon to be releasing a fab new FunkyHand CD which launches at the end of the month on Create and Craft- and all I can say is WOW
Have a great rest of the weekend and I might even be back tomorrow if I don't need hospitalisation after the shock of being back at agility after rather a long break

Get Funky- Going Round in Circles

Welcome to the Funky Fifteenth of the month which means a new Get Funky monthly challenge

It's my turn to host the challenge and for this I chose

Going Round In Circles

so anything goes with circles on it, circular shaped card etc but there is still the rule that you must use at least one Funky Hand product and to help with this Anice is giving away a freebie that can be collected from the FunkyHand shop

You have to pop back to the challenge blog every third day this month to see the rest of the DT's projects- so we are keeping you in suspense

Hope you can join in and remember to get your freebie to get you started and you could win the download of your choice from Funky Hand

Today also launches the release of four ranges of Betty stamps- the Betty I used is from the Let's Celebrate range and isn't she fab- have a look when you go to the shop and see what the Dt have been making with her

Kenny K's Krafty Girlz

Over at Kenny K's the challenge this week is
Love You
and as you can see I went into ribbon overload for this one- just loove that image, so cool
can't take this being back at work, so tired and no time to craft- it's just awful but then I suppose a good sleep will help but you know what it's like first couple of days back after a break you're scared you sleep in so can't sleep at all
Off to get a few bits and pieces finished and a calendar completed that is just slightly over due!

Delicious Doodles

The challenge this week at Delicious Doodles is to try a new technique or something new
For my card I used the wonderful Alas Poor Yoric image and made a pyramage with it- quite tricky to line up the die cutting as I'm not one for a lot of fiddley patience but got there in the end , the papers are by Anna Griffen
Looking forward to seeing what new things you attempt so I can pinch the ideas of you and try lots of new things
Have a lovely Friday

Haunted Design House- Macabre Monday

The Macabre Monday challenge over at Haunted Design House this week is Nightmarish New Year where they want to see about long forgotten New Year resolutions
for my card I used this fab bat image from Teri at Delicious Doodles and thought the sentiment was quite appropriate for the image
Went round the garden centres today with my mum and we had lunch then coffee and cake- oh it will be so bad going back to work next week..... might win the lottery and not need to... but I doubt that one I can't even win a tenner on it never mind the biggie

Tuesday 4 January 2011

Simply Create

The challenge at Simply Create this week is embossing and if you look closely enough you will see I embossed the black frame for the sentiment
The papers are from the Black and Gold Forever Friends CD and the card didn't quite turn out like the idea I had in head- would be better not thinking about it before hand cause it never turns out like I think it should if I do
Off now to get ahead with more DT stuff and might just make myslef a hot chocolate as i bought the cream and marshmallows so it would be a shame to have them go to waste!!


Funky Hand DT Call

Anice is looking for new members to join the gang so pop overHERE to see what you need to do but hurry you only have up to the 7th January to apply

Happy New Year

Wishing you all a very Happy new year and I hope 2011 is a good one for you
As you can see I had a busy day yesterday making lots of silhouette cards with images from Teri at Delicious Doodles
The papers are all, except the orange one, from the Forever Friends Black and Gold CD
I have decided to get ahead with cards I am short of and thought these images suited anniversary brilliantly and the grass image is ideal for sympathy or thinking of you
Off now to play with a new image from Teri that will be released on Monday so look out for this one its a stunner
Hope you don't have a sore head today and enjoy yourself
