Happy Birthday to me..for yesterday! Yes I became another year older yesterday and I wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent me birthday wishes. I also want to say a massive thank you to all my lovely internet buddies from Making Cards forum who sent me a collection of the most lovely handmade birthday cards. Thank you all very much! I will be back soon to tell you all about some new exciting Funky Hand products that will be available in the near future. I'm very excited..but I will tell you all later.
Here is a card that my Mom made for me for my birthday..she's an avid card maker so I wanted to show you it.

As Christmas approaches it's getting lovely to walk around the shops looking at all the decorations and wrapping paper. I love Christmas so I enjoyed just wandering around listening to the music and looking at all the tinsel and pretty decoration displays. Ian really hates shopping around Christmas because it gets so busy, so this year I am doing the shopping during the day to miss the crowds, trouble is I want to buy all the decorations because I keep thinking of cards I could make with this and that. I have to keep my money in my purse!
Ians Grandma had a fall a couple of days ago and broke her collar bone. As she is in her 90's things like this take such a long time to heal she is pretty unwell. I made her a card to wish her better, I thought I would show it to you. Something simple but pretty, hope she likes it.

Finally I have found time to sit down and design my own Christmas cards for this year. As I am so busy I decided to keep them pretty simple and easy to make. Last year I had more time and spent ages shrinkng plastic, stamping, glittering etc.. this year it's all much more simple. My friends and family will think there is something wrong with me!

Now that is decided I just have to find time to make enough to go round!!

I just never seem to have time to sit down and really get on with making some cards recently so I was really please when I got to make a couple of cards yesterday afternoon using my new papers. I thought I would let you have a look...

The papers are from my new CD It's Funky Too There have been a few changes here at Funky Hand over the last few weeks, Ian my techie has been freshening up the sites and finally it's all finished! I am really happy with the changes.
On the home front we have been trying to decided what we were going to do at Christmas this year. After much talk we have decided to leave the cold of the UK jump on a plane and head off on a Carribean cruise! I am really looking forward to having Christmas day in hot weather! There is still loads to organise for Christmas though even though we wont be here.. we have to buy and then share presents with friends and families early so that is our focus at the moment. I haven't even started my Christmas cards yet! I have decided on the designs just have to get started! I hope you are more organised than I am..
