Funky Hand Word Books and stuff.............

This card was made with the papers from the new Funky Word Book CD from Funky Hand. It was a sell out when it was first shown on Create and Craft TV a couple of weeks ago, and now here is your chance again, Anice will be live on Create and Craft TV on tuesday 19th May at 12 noon, with this fab CD, and the whisper has it that they are selling the Bind-it-all machine on the same show. those of you in the USA or Canada, can order the CD direct from Funky Hand and you get free shipping to anywhere in the world.
This is quite a big card - 5" x 7", when they are shown on TV I have learnt to my cost that little cards just don't have an impact, and the bigger, bolder designs work best.

Here is my word book - I had to get these done in a hurry, as there was a deadline for the first TV show, the CD had to arrive from the UK, then the finished products had to be parcelled up and sent back to the UK. I decided to print out the words OH NO! 50! for my book. It was before I got my bind it all, so I used keyring chains to hold it all together (can't wait to make another one now that I have all the fancy binding thingies). The book is to a fictional chap called Tony, so called simply because I had all these left over letter epoxy stickers in exactly the right shade of blue, and the only name I could make was Tony - I could have called him xyont but didn't think that would look great - or I could have used the sensible option and printed out a totally coordinating alphabet from the Funky Hand CD - what was I thinking?
On the subject of Funky Hand, we are all excited that Dolly is joining our team, welcome Vicky (aka Dolly). Go and have a peek at her blog and you will see why Anice felt she would fit right in. There were many fabulous entries though, so hugs to all of you who didn't make it this time.

Take a peek at my sidebar, notice a new logo on there? I am chuffed with this one - click to find out what Polka Doodles is all about.......................................

These are all great! I'm glad you opted for Tony because other permutations might have caused shock waves LOL!
I love 5x7 -they give me more room to create "movement" in my cards. However, the lady at my new craft shop (yes, there is one on Guernsey: yipee!) keeps them behind the counter for "real" card makers because she says most peole don't like them -how odd!
Have a lovely weekend,
Sammie
