It's been a busy weekend..

Well, it's always pretty busy here at Funky Hand Towers but this weekend has been especially so. Firstly I want to tell you about my lovely new stash order that arrived on Saturday. I was just having a look around last week to see what new things were in my favourite craft web shops and my fingers just slipped and these items accidentally went into my shopping basket...



I have been needing a new craft knife for ages and I couldn't resist this lovely green one from Doodlebug. I also have been coveting the precision file set by Basic Grey for ages as I do find it difficult to sand the fiddly parts of some of my chipboard letters and flowers, once I'd put that in my basket then the Doodle bug chipboard flower bouquet set was the perfect purchase to test it out on!! I already have two Doodlebug chipboard houses that I haven't had a chance to make up as yet..more than likely the flower bouquet will join them but one day I will get time to cover them with some of my papers..how cool will they all look then? As you can see from the picture I also treated myself to a couple of new stamps and I got to work with them straight away.

I can't believe it but I haven't mentioned here that over the last three weeks some of my CDs have been featuring on Alan and Barrys Crafts website as part of their pick of the week specials for their members. They have been doing a fantastic job showing what is on the CDs and really going in depth on how the CDs work. If you would like a look go to their website www.alanandbarryscrafts.com look under Funky Hand CDs and take a look at the web shows that they have produced. This Friday they are launching my first two CDs The Funky One and Yule Be Funky together in a special package. Well, I need to get some new card examples to them to photograph so I have been working away this weekend making cards with The Funky One. I have to admit I haven't made cards with my first CD for a very long time but I had great fun coming up with new ideas, I thought I would share some of them with you.









Now I have to go off and make some sample cards for Yule Be Funky..I have to admit I don't feel that inspired to make Christmas cards at the moment but I have to get moving on them..wish me luck!!
