New Xmas themed Digi stamps available

Oops I've been so busy getting everything else done that I have completely forgotten to tell you about my new download product available on my website

If you haven't started your Christmas cards I haven't (!) my new Digital stamps Festive Fun might be just the thing you need to top off those last minute Christmas makes. They are great for colouring in or printing onto other backing papers to paper piece. To get a good look at the sort of things you could make using them don't forget to have a look at the gallery of the fabby creations my wonderful Design Team have pulled together using them. You'll find the galley on the sales page. Oh, another great thing about these Digital stamps is that they are priced at only £1.99 so they are not going to break the bank either, a very important thing at this time of the year as we all try to get ready for Christmas.

Funky Hand Towers is on the move..

I've been hinting for a while that I had things to tell you and I'm not very good at keeping secrets for very long so I thought I would tell you one of them...

I am moving into my first office! I am so excited I could burst, where I'll be based is a really cool collection of offices that are being developed in an old pottery forge just outside the centre of Newcastle. It is a really fabby community of media companies and designers so it will hopefully bring me lots of inspiration.(There is also a wonderful cafe based in the old clock tower on site which I imagine wont be so good for my figure!!) My office should be finished at the beginning of December and I'll be moving all the Funky Hand business stuff over there during the month and be working full time out of it from January. Woo hoo! I'm so excited that the business has grown so much that I can't work from home any longer. I know I have all my wonderful customers to thank for that and I want you to know I can't tell you how much I appreciate all your support over the last couple of years.

As I mentioned earlier the offices are being built in a wonderful old pottery forge building so they have the most amazing old brickwork interiors, when the bricks have been sand blasted back to their orginal condition they are the most beautiful browns,oranges and just don't get bricks like them these days. But even though the forge is old the designs of the offices are very high tech.. We visited the site a couple of months ago and took some photos of where our office is going to be..the big white arrow is pointing at my office window!

The development has moved on somewhat from this picture of course and as soon as I have my hands on the keys I will share the pictures of my all new Funky Hand Towers.

The new CD is taking a little longer to perfect than we had originally thought but if something is worth doing it's worth doing properly so I'll hopefully be back very soon with a release date and a time when you can have a good look at it on Create and Craft TV.

We do have a few new things in the pipeline to share with you very poor design gang girls are working away getting fabby images of cards they've made with the new product so I'll be back to share all the details with you very soon.

Well, I'd best get back to making cards with the new CD, it's word books today so I'd best get printing!

Speak again very soon

Another new Funky Hand DT member..

I am very pleased to introduce you to another wonderful crafter who has agreed to join our Funky Hand Design Team Gang, Kathy Black. You can see Kathys amazing work on her fab blog Kathys Waffle. I've been a big fan of Kathys work for years so I am very honoured that she has joined the team. Welcome Kathy!

With all this getting the new CD ready I have been very lax with doing much crafting at all. So, I thought I would share a card that I made for my Dads 60th birthday last week.

It's so difficult to get a decent picture at the moment here the light is really dim so please forgive the rather poor quality picture but at least it's a card!! I made it using papers from my new CD Dreams Come True which I will have more info about a release date very soon..I hope!

Don't forget to pop over to the Funky Hand DT challenge blog Get Funky! and join in with this months new challenge from Enfys. There's a £20.00 Funky Hand voucher to be won and as they say you have to be in it to win it!!

Well that's it from me today..I'll be back real soon.

It's time for a new Get Funky! Challenge

Congratulations to the winner of last months Halloween Challenge set by Allison on the Get Funky! Challenge Blog, thank you to everyone who joined in, we all enjoyed looking at your fab entries.

This months Get Funky! Challenge has been set by Enfys and the theme is Autumn Woodland So, lets see your Autumn colours and woodland themed craft creations this month to win the £20.00 voucher to spend on my website

Here's my contribution this month...

I've used papers from our new craft CD 'Dreams Come True' which will be launched in the near future..I'll be back to let you know when very soon. I decided to keep the card pretty simply just cutting out a few leaves and a bit of doodling to finish off around the edge of the base card. The sentiment was created using my favourite rub on letters 'All Mixed up' by Doodlebug.

I'm looking forward to seeing your entries to the challenge and you need to pop over and take a look at all the fab creations from the Design Team, I dare you not to be inspired by them!

Speak again soon
