A Funky Blog Hop - Win Funky Kraft Stash & Steam Funk Downloads!

Two new releases for Funky Hand!! Both are kraft based and their names are Funky Kraft Stash and Steam Funk!! And both are available to buy right now - just click on their names!

But, if you can wait a while, you could win both downloads by taking part in our little blog hop!

Hop runs from NOW and Anice will accept the unscrambled phrase until midnight GMT tomorrow evening (Sunday). If you've not hopped from the start, pop over to Anice who will explain how its all going to work and she will provide your instructions and the list of who to hop to!

So, if you've arrived at me from Anice then you are on the right track! My letter is:

V

Now leave me a comment and hop over to Jules who will reveal her make with one of the new releases and will give you a letter too!

Just remember to write down each of our letters and leave us all a comment - you've got to be in it to win it!!

I've got two cards to show that I've made from the two downloads (I do have more but will blog those later in the week!)

This first card uses all papers from Steam Funk plus a very vintage March 1950 car magazine donated by my husband! I've used my own template for the dress and its only stuck down to the card with the bodice so its quite a sticky out card and tactile!

Sequins and pearls are from my stash.


And for this card, I've used Funky Kraft Stash for the base and teamed it with the Shabby Saturday download - cutting out the sentiment, flowers and using a Nesties die as a template to draw around. Plus some Card Candy and embroidery thread for detail.

Hope you agree that they are fab downloads and hope you can join in with our blog hop - you never know - you could be a winner!

Good luck!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Card 1
Sweet Sketch Wednesday: Sketch Followed
Little Miss Mufett Challenge: Something New (new papers)
Fab n Funky: Recycle (1950 car magazine)
Everybody Art Challenge: Shabby

Card 2
