Blog Hop weekend is here :o)


Good Morning!!! And welcome to the Funky Hand Blog Hop.




Hopefully you will have come to my blog from the lovely Ruth's blog TipTop Toppers Things, if not then please head to the Funky Hand Blog and start from there as the instructions and blog hop order are all there for you.



The blog hop is to celebrate the release of the newest cd from Funky Hand called 12 Crafters Crafting and as the name suggests it's a festive cd full of gorgeous scrummy papers and images for all things Christmassy!! Some of you will have lots of your cards already made but if you are anything like me you won't be that organised lol In fact I haven't made any cards yet! I know I know lol My report card would say "must do better" hehe I have to admit I wasn't exactly full of festive spirit when the cd arrived, but within minutes of flicking through all the gorgeous papers, templates and images I was full of ideas and HAD to get started straight away!




Spookily enough with a name like 12 Crafter's Crafting there are 12 paper collections and luckily there are 12 members of the DT. We all picked a collection to use and I picked the one called Xmas Presents.


The prize for picking up all the letters, rearranging them into the right word/phrase and remembering to leave a comment on everyone's blogs is a copy of the gorgeous 12 Crafters Crafting However if you simply can't wait to see if you have won the prize it is available right now to pre order before it's official release on 5th November.





My project uses the lovely angel image, isn't she the cutest? I coloured her with promarkers and attached her to a nestie cut circle embossed with the snowflake embossing folder. Between the two layers is some angel hair cord just to set it off. The plastic casing was saved from a gift I received many Christmases ago, I thought it would be perfect for just this kind of project :o)


Please leave a comment on this post and then head on over to the gorgeous Paula to see her fabulous project and collect the next letter. Don't worry if your comment doesn't appear straight away, I have comment moderation on


(Oh and just in case you didn't get my subtle hint my letter is A lol)
