Funky Hand Blog Hop

A huge and special WELCOME to you if you have found your way here from Debbie's blog because you're taking part in the Funky Hand 2013 Christmas Launch Blog Hop!

As usual with these things, you can find out all you need to know by visiting our Launch Pad - in this case it's Anice's BLOG which you can find HERE

Anice will give you the first letter of an anagram, and will direct you to the next Blog you need to visit to get the next one.  In a minute I'll give you "my" letter and direct you to your next port of call, but first, here's the project I want to share with you today
You can see quite a lot of tiny examples of papers from the Sleigh Ride set on this card, Created from lots of little rectangles of  papers left over from making my other projects, just cut to size then rolled around a bamboo skewer  - I had loads of fun making this one, and I hope you enjoy seeing it!

So, why join in with our Blog Hop? 
Well, there will be this fab prize from Funky Hand for someone.....
a complete set of downloads (backing papers and wordbook) from either Sleigh Ride or Silent Night and all four Christmas digital image downloads
to qualify and be in with a chance of winning that little lot, you need to visit and leave a comment on the blogs of all who are taking part, collect the letters and solve the anagram - when you reach the final destination you'll find out what to do next.  On the way round all the blogs you'll get a sneaky peek of what to expect from the new Christmas downloads and hopefully get some great ideas and inspiration along the way!

If you've never tried digital crafting, let me tell you why I'm a convert! 
I love that all those wonderful Funky Hand papers are at my fingertips and I'll never run out! 
I love that the choice is mine as to what sort of paper, card, vellum, canvas etc that I print them onto - and what size I print them at can be chosen too - even the specific bits of each design I want to use can be selected with a bit of cropping and resizing - you don't get that with a paper pack!
I don't do much stamping so digi images are perfect for me - they are always there for those occasions when I need to use something like that - and I don't need to embarrass myself with my lousy colouring skills as I can take a bit of time and colour them in my graphics program on the pc {wink}

Okay, that's enough of the waffle - it's time for you to leave your message for me here, pick up my letter 
for your collection and then hop on over to Lou's blog to see what she has to share with you

Thanks for visiting and for taking part in our Big Blog Hop

Hope you are having a lovely weekend, thanks for visiting, Please come back soon - it would be just fab to see you again :)
