As it's the Summer solstace today (longest day in other words) and I am feeling all hippyish , I made this card all about 'love' with papers from my new CD and a topper that is also included on the CD. I know I am always looking for embellishments to help me make a quick card ( I am afraid I am a last minute card maker!) so I have designed a collection of funky word toppers to co-ordinate with all the colour collections to help when you need something quick but still want something fun and lively. I am still creating the last of the toppers so if you have any good ideas for short punchy words that you would like to see on a topper let me know..I might be able to include your idea! Enjoy your day.

Ha! I have been having fun creating more ATCs for the June ATC swap on the Making Cards Magazine Forum the theme is 'Teddy Bears' and I decided that I would try to make them a little different. I didn't want to give up my Spaceman Ted really once he was finished!
Things are finally getting back to some sort of normal here at Funky Hand Towers, I finished the last of my antibiotics yesterday so my fingers are crossed that that will have seen off that nasty food poisoning once and for all! I can now get back to what I should be doing, finishing this CD!!

I love my Dad! and to try to show it I made him a Fathers Day card that I hope he likes. I have to admit leaving my card making to the last minute recently but this is really pushing my luck! I made this card this morning, scanned it and whilst the glue was probably still not dry got it into the post! Hopefully he will get it in time!

The papers are of course from my new CD V.Funky. Now I have to get back to work speak soon!

Just got my post and I'm all excited again! My Acid-free paper packs Funky Females and Funky Fellas are featured in the 'Editors Best Buy' recommendations in the July issue of Card Making and Papercraft Magazine It's so exciting to see my papers laid out on a magazine page. It only seems five minutes ago that I was sitting here in front of my computer designing them. Just had to share my excitement with you! Best get back to work, speak soon!

Oh dear, I have been ill for the last few weeks..'food poisoning' my Doctors tell me but I have had it on an off since 10th May! Sitting here now feeling pretty sorry for myself. Doesn't this bacteria know I have lots of work to do! Hopefully I will start to feel better soon (crossing my fingers) and will be able to get this CD finished. I don't know about calling it 'V.Funky' I should call it 'The never ending CD story!!' I had been making a very poor effort at a diet previous to this bout of illness.. one good thing the weight is starting to come off! But not in the most healthy way I suppose!

As this post is totally about me I thought I would post a digi scrap page I did a while ago which I had forgotten about. It's a picture of me waiting in line in San Fransisco to go to Alcatraz prison, Ian took it and I use it everywhere! The backing paper is from my first CD The Funky One now going off to take more fluids and curl up in front of an old movie to continue feeling sorry for myself!
