More Summer Sunshine Fun

It's time for a midway reminder over at Nutcrafters so it's another
 'Summer Sunshine Fun' card. 
I've used a few of the new digi stamps available on the website shop.I really wanted to do an easel card as it's been ages since I last made one.

Here's another view of it:

I used some freebie papers and cut out some elements form the papers too, added some paper twine, a little crab,images were coloured with promarkers.
Remember we have 2 prizes up for grabs and our fantastic Top 3 spots too.

I really enjoyed making this - it's quite different for me.Have a super day whatever you're up to.

Christmas Pocket card


It's a beautiful day and it's little old me here to give you some funkyhand inspiration.  Well that's the plan. Here's a sneaky peak of one of the cards I've been doing over the last week. You will absolutely love the new downloads etc... coming to you soon.

This is just some of the papers from one of the new collections. Not even sure if I'm allowed to name it so I won't .Don't want my legs slapping now.... 

I decided to try my hand at making a pocket card, which is just a matter of:

  • layering lots of pieces of paper together 
  • glueing 3 sides so that you can pop something into the top of the pocket. 
  • I've popped in some die cut trees and some letters from the new doodlewords. 
  • The big tree is actually taken from 1 of the new backing papers and enlarged so I could cut it out and wrap bakers twine around it. 
Why not have a try at a pocket card - they are great fun and you can use any shape as a pocket.We'd love you to show us anything that you've been making with any of the Funkyhand products, so either leave us a link over at Get funky and craft or pop over to our Funkyhand Facebook page.

Just a little reminder there is always a post every Wednesday and on a Sat/Sun from one of the fabulous Funkettes so why not pop over here and support them. Blogland is amazing if you are needing a boost or some inspiration too.


Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.I'm starting to get caught up with everything now, so thank you for your patience and welcome to my new follower.I'm still wearing my sunglasses as my eyes and my head are still sensitive to light. I am such a pretty picture wearing my sunnies and a headache strip on my forehead while watching tv on a night with my hubby - tee hee - it helps so I don't care....I must look a right sight though - ha ha.

Bye for now

Apologies that I haven't been commenting and popping by your blogs since I got home.

I'm thinking of you all and will get round to you eventually, just hang in there with me.

Just a quick post just now to let you know that it will take me a while to catch but by next week I should be up to speed - fingers crossed. I hope you're all hanging in there with this beautiful weather.

Todays card is using Funkyhand winter-wedding-papers which are so useable for other occasions.I've used one of the new doodlewords too with a purple promarker, ribbon,postage dies,flower die and card candi. So girly.

Have a super day. I'm off into my craft room to play hopefully as I need a restful day as I have my School Reunion tonight and a few drinkies. My dad is my taxi tonight and I'm going to stay at his house as it's held near him.

Monkey Tricks

Hi all,

Phew what a scorcher it's been again - lovely. Well I'm home alone as Shamus has gone camping with his motorbike pals for the weekend and Shannen has gone to work. So I'm laid on the sofa determined to have a nice relaxing night.

Here's a card I made today. I've had a few nights this week where I've been enjoying abit of cutting out - very relaxing.
The stripey paper and decoupaged monkey are from Polkadoodles Paper Boutique 1. The sentiment is from Sundae of seasons. I added a few buttons, some twine, ribbon and a chipboard number. Really enjoyed making this - such a fun image.
