Over at the 'Get Funky' Challenge blog, a brand new challenge called 'Birthday Fun' which is being hosted by the lovely Jenny. Jenny has done a word book using the latest release from Funky Hand's 'Happy Happy Birthday' which, in my opinion, is the best and most versatile Funky Hand CD to come out yet.
My turn to post a card for the DT on the challenge blog 'Get Funky' is on October 12th - so hopefully you will come back and have a look at my effort then.
Because I hosted last months challenge 'At the Seaside', it was my turn also to pick the overall winner and the three 'runner-up' winning entries. If you go HERE you will see what I chose from those who entered. Not every card could be considered as they hadn't followed the rule of using at least one Funky Hand product in their project, which is a shame as there were some great entries. This is what happens when people enter challenges en mass - because they just see the title of the challenge then enter, without considering that it may have some, if only minor, stipulations.
Anyway, the challenge runs from the Funky Fifteenth until 11pm on the 14th of the following month. Each month, just in case you don't own anything from Funky Hand (and why not?), Anice kindly offers a FREEBIE paper so that anyone can have a go at joining in. Go HERE if you want to see what this months download is.
I'll be back shortly with news about the new Funky Hand CD - which I would have mentioned before now had I a) not been finishing wedding stationery off b) been at the wedding itself yesterday, c) been well enough to blog and do anything for that matter - and not end up in bed asleep or in fact asleep anywhere I sat... watch this space anyhow.
Thanks to all those who read and commented on the post before this one - which is a far cry from my usual post and not at all like me to get on my soap box, but I was doing it for a cause - and on the request of the campaigners for a fairer welfare benefits system, not the shambles that is the current state of the welfare reform 'attempt'.
