It Don't mean a Thing ....

If It Ain't Got That Zing!
The new Get Funky! Funky 15th challenge started on March 15th and this time it's Lou setting the challenge for the Funky Hand Gang, and hopefully for lots of Get Funky "Challengees" too!  It's all about cards and other projects with Spring Zing this month and you can see a new project on the Get Funky! blog every couple of days.  To join in you just need to follow Lou's instructions and make sure you use at least one Funky Hand product on your project - each month there's a prize on offer, and there's also a freebie download available to go with whatever the month's challenge is.
Today it's my turn to share what I've been making
I used this month's Funky Freebie, printed in three sizes for the flower, and the papers and dotty card template are from the Craft the Year Away CD
You can read how I made this card HERE
I'm very chuffed that Fabrizio has featured this card on his Papermood site today
We're now home after a few days in Derbyshire.  We were staying at another of the fab English Heritage holiday lets, this time it was East Lodge at Hardwick Old Hall.  A wonderful place to stay and a great area for touring with lovely scenery and fantastic places to visit (well, those that were open this early in the season)  One fly in the ointment was that one of the places high on my wish-to-see list, Chatsworth House was absolutely covered in scaffolding, so we didn't bother to go any nearer than the road through the park.  No doubt I'll bore you with some photos in due have been warned!
Another fly in the ointment is that I managed to catch a horrible cold - I've been sneezing so hard for the last couple of days that I've hurt my ribs.  Now it's not funny, so you can stop your sniggering right now.....;-)
Catch up with all my Blogging Buds asap!
Enjoy the sunshine
