Sending out a big thanks..

You know what it's like, you're under a bit of pressure, a little stressed, got loads to do and then suddenly something happens that makes you realise that none of that matters and that the most important thing is having people around you that are kind and thoughtful. Well that happened to me earlier in the week when I received the nicest gift through the post from Lucy aka loopyLou (see her blog LoopyLous Thoughts here)
She had made me this beautiful mini word book of my name with my Huge Funky Love download collection and I wanted to share it with you all..

It is so delicate and beautiful, when I opened it and read the letter she had popped along with it I came over all emotional!! So I want to say thank you very much to Lucy, you really made my day.

As well as wanting to thank Lucy for her lovely gift I also wanted to remind you that Saturday 1st August is the big launch day of the Funky Hand Design Teams new monthly challenge blog Get Funky! I've volunteered to provide the first challenge so don't let me down..pop over and take a look you have the whole month to join in and you could be the first winner of the £20.00 gift voucher to spend on my website.

Right I'd best get back to crafting, I have two birthday cards to make, as usual I've left them to the last moment.I'll share them with you next week once they have reached the birthday girls they are intended for.

Speak again very soon.

New Download Collection & a chance to Get Funky!

Goodness me! I thought I would never get here to talk to you today! It's been a mad house here in Funky Hand Towers. We have been working flat out to launch a brand new download collection called Hearts and Flowers which you can now find available on

It's a lovely collection of backing papers in lilac, purples and greens. Take a look at the gallery on the website of the wonderful cards that the Funky Hand Design Gang made with this collection..I must say they are some of my favourites. Here's a little hint of what you can expect from this collection, pop over to the website to see the whole collection.

As well as launching a new craft backing paper collection I have also been working on getting our brand new Get Funky Challenge Blog up and ready so we can launch the first challenge next Saturday 1st August.

Well I'm really pleased to let you know that it is now all ready for you to go and have a look at. The first challenge wont be launched until the 1st August but if you pop over there's a little present there just for you.. go and take a look and remember to start following us so you don't miss a challenge or the chance to win a £20.00 craft voucher to spend at the Funky Hand website each month. You can find the Get Funky Challenge Blog here

I am looking forward to seeing you over at the challenge blog and I know all the other Design Team members are too.

Speak again very soon

Holidays are over..back to work!

Well, I've been meaning to get here for a chat all week..but you know what it's like when you have been away for two weeks and you come home all relaxed and switch on the PC.. Arrgghh I've been up to my eyes with work catch up all week and so this is the first time I've had a chance to get here.

Ian and I haven't had a holiday that lasted more than a few days for years so when our good friends Andy and Vic asked us if we fancied trying out Andy's Dads newly purchased penthouse apartment in Mallorca for two weeks we couldn't really say could we??! It is a beautiful place over looking a fab little harbor and even though I did still have to work for a little while every day (thank goodness for wireless internet connections!!) we had a totally wonderful time..

View from the apartment balcony.

Our balcony breakfast area..

and here is Ian and I with our next purchase... well we can dream can't we?!

Whilst we were away I was very proud of Ian as he achieved something that he has wanted to do for as long as I have known him..he took his Scuba diving qualifications, so Ian can now officially scuba dive..

As I said though we were back to earth with a bump when we returned as it's as busy here in Funky Hand Towers as ever. Oh I wanted to let you know that I am presenting another live TV show tomorrow Monday 20th July on the Create and Craft Channel at 8am in the morning, it's all rather exciting as the Create and Craft Channel is now being shown not only on Sky Channel 671 but you can also watch shows each morning on Freeview Channel 22. I'll be presenting my latest craft CD Funky Word Books and showing you how to use it with a Bind it All machine so please join me if you can.. hopefully I'll be able to remember how to use the new Pink machine as I only own a Blue one.. you had best watch it might be good for a laugh!!

Once my Create and Craft shows are over this week I am full steam ahead with getting my fab Funky Hand Design Gangs Challenge Blog 'Get Funky' ready for the big launch on the 1st August. We are all very excited about bringing you this new monthly challenge blog with Funky Hand freebies and a big prize every month. I'll be back later in the week with more details of where you can find us and join in.

Well, I hope you have a great week and I'll speak to you again soon.

The challenges will only be once a month so plenty of time to take part each month and we are planning to make it well worth you to get involved as there will be a big prize for the monthly winner each and every month..but I'll tell you more about that closer to the time! There will be freebies, fun and you'll get to see even more of the amazing card making talents of the Funky Hand Design Gang.

Today's a very special day!

It's all very exciting best friend Corrina is going into hospital to have her second baby.

It's a little bit different from when Alana her first child was born two and half years ago as then we didn't know that she would be a girl and Corrina was in labour for quite a while before she had an emergency C'Section. None of that this time..we already know that she is expecting a little boy,(though I'm not so sure he'll be that little as poor Corrina has been 'huge' for ages!!) and that his name will be Sam. With having a C' section you even know they day he will arrive!

I am sending all my love and best wishes to both Corrina and her husband Neil and big sister Alana today..I wish I could be closer to you, but I'm off sunning myself on my first holiday in years! How un-thoughtful of you to be due right in the middle!! I can't wait to see you all and to meet Sam.

I made sure I had my card ready before I flew off on my jollys!

The papers are from the baby collection my craft CD V Funky. I even hand stitched the swirl..not that Sam will really appreciate all the effort, how's he to know that I'm not much of a stitcher, but I'm sure his Mom and Dad will!!

Speak again very soon
