Christmas cards I haven't shared!

Hi everyone,

If you read my blog, you know I am terrible for leaving everything to the last moment.  Once again Christmas just gone I left making the family cards to the last moment but, this year I actually did make them! Shock horror!  I didn't end up buying them. :)

I thought I would share them with you as I have been practicing my Promarker colouring and wanted to use my 'average' skills on the cards.  Here are the two I made for our parents:

The image is a freebie by Melonheadz from a few years ago. You can find the link to it here.
I really enjoyed colouring these in and because the image is all colour it meant I could keep the card pretty plain.  The backing paper on them is from the Funky Hand Silent Night download collection.

Here's a closer look..


I am still very much a beginner with my colouring so don't judge me too harshly.  They took me quite a long time to complete but they turned out pretty good I think.

So, they are the first of my delayed Christmas shares.  I'll let you see the other ones I managed to finish next time.

Thanks for visiting

A lovely new download that you need!

Hi everyone,

It's been a bit of a while since I shared a new craft backing paper download with you so, here is a new one..
Keep In Touch. It contains 22 A4 high resolution backing papers and 2 sets of matching toppers.  It's nice and bright as you can see below.  Perfect for creating for youngsters and not so youngsters alike!

This craft download has proved very popular with my design team and they have created the most amazing things using it.  Want to see a few of them?  Oh go on then!

This little stunner of a handmade card is by Kathy. She has resized some of the toppers to use as embellishments.  That's the great thing about digital downloads you can make them whatever size that you need. 

How about creating your very own notelets?  Well Lou has and aren't they amazing!

Another handmade card using lots of the different backing papers from the collection and a topper included in the collection for the central focus from Marleen.

and finally a card I made.  I've used one of the toppers but a blank one and added my own sentiment.

If you would like to see even more samples to get your crafty juices flowing using this Keep In Touch backing paper collection then visit the Funky Hand website and take a look at the gallery attached to the product page.  
While you are over there why not add this download into your basket.  It's only £2.49 for 22 papers and two lots of matching know you need it!

Old England to New England.

Hello all,

I've been away for a few days visiting Ians brother over in the US.  He has just moved from New York to Boston so we needed to have a look at his new appartment (It's very swish by the way :)) and take a look around at where he now lives.  Neither of us have ever been to Boston or the New England area before so, it was great fun.

Lucky for us we were just at the beginning of their 'Fall', Autumn for us!  and New England is known for it's beautiful colour changes in the mountains so off we headed.  I was also taking to opportunity to be inspired by the lovely colours.

We were just a little too early for the full colour changes to the trees but it was still wonderful to see..

Right, my holiday is over.  I have to get back to the pile of emails that are in my inbox.  I'll be back soon with some fantastic creations by the Funky Hand DT ready for Halloween.

Until then, take care.

All a crafter needs, Our Betty stamps for just £1.00!

Good afternoon everyone,

I know everyone thinks I've gone a little mad but I've decided to add more Funky Hand stash to my £1.00 sale over on the Funky Hand website. This time as well as all the craft CD ROMs you will find the Our Betty clear stamp sets.

These stamp collection are made up of loads of high quality acrylic clear stamps.  There's a 'Betty' image on each and then loads of other things that go perfectly with her, some really handy sentiments.

Betty is a girl after my own heart, she isn't a skinny minny and she likes her cakes, tea, handbags and of course wine!!

She was priced as £7.99 so grabbing her for £1.00 means that if you buy all three sets you are making a huge saving of £21.00

So, I have to get back to work lots of new things to finish off.  Speak again soon.

A 'Fading' Beauty of a card!

Hi everyone,

With all the madness here in the Garden Studio because of the £1.00 CD sale, which is still going on over on the website by the way, I haven't been able to craft at all. Boo!  So, I though I would share a few of the cards that the Design Team have been creating and sharing over on the                          Get Funky and Craft Blog.  To give you a bit of inspiration from them whilst I am trying to keep my head above the sea of CD packages!

Here is a lovely card made by Sammylou using the Fading Beauty backing paper download collection.

Lou made this fabby aeroplane using the Steam Funk download.  How great is this?

Mareleen made this lovely love themed card using the Georgie Love Banner digital stamp.

Debbie created this 'die'tastic card using backing papers from the Minty Madness downloadable collection

 and finally Kathy showed us that you can create all year around with Funky Hand Christmas themed downloads by making this gift bag using the Sleigh Ride backing paper download,

So, there is a bit of inspiration from the Funky Hand DT.  I hope that you enjoyed having a look.
Don't forget that you can see the DT creations first hand by visiting their Funky Hand Blog Get Funky and Craft.  For more Funky Hand fabness why not 'like' our Facebook page or join the Facebook Group? We'd love to have you there for a good ole' chat. :)

Until next time.
