It's Get Funky December Challenge!

Hi Everyone, Anice here, hope you are enjoying the lovely weather we are having! Can you believe that the year is coming to an end..maybe it's just me getting older but boy time really flies these days! Congratulations to our winner Sally from last month and welcome to this months Get Funky! Challenge.

We are very lucky, this month to be combining our challenge with another challenge blog Kathys Waffle Sketch File so you will have two chances of being a winner!! Kathy of course is a wonderful member of our Design Team so, as this is the last month of the year, and I needed some help this month getting everything together for the challenge, Kathy stepped in like an angel and offered us this wonderful sketch to follow for this months Get Funky Challenge:

Now, I know how you all like a good sketch to follow so I'd like to see plenty of entries this month to round the year off nicely. I have to hang my head in shame as I haven't been able to get to my office for almost a week because of the snow and all my crafting stash is locked up in there so..I haven't been able to make an inspiration card so far..but I'll post it up here as soon as it's done. Though we still have some wonderful cards from the rest of the Design Team to offer you some inspiration,

First up is a wonderful creation from Kathy our sketch angel this month. She has created a fabby note pad using papers from the Colour Me Happy CD Rom. Isn't it just great? I'm so lucky to have such talented crafters to work with.
Next we have a creation from Allison:

Allison created this card using the Funky Hand Salt and Pepper download collection..and very classy it is as well!

Debs decided on a Christmas themed card..which I think she is allowed at this time of the year. She has used paper from the Colour Me Happy Cd Rom and a Christmas Tree image from the digi stamps included in the All I want for Xmas download collection. I just love the pom poms on this one!

Enfys has given us another Christmas card but with a very different feel made with papers from the Colour Me Happy CD ROM I love the idea of the house representing the family.

Jane has decided to go the Christmas theme way as well with this fab gingham creation using papers from the Colour Me Happy CD ROM. I love how warm the card appears being based with the craft coloured card.

Jules has created a beautiful layered card using papers from one of the Funky Hand original collection CD Roms Funky Seasons (which if you didn't know, have all be permanently reduced in price on our website) and the most amazing coloured snow flakes it's a beautiful use of the sketch.

Lou has created a card away from the Christmas trend using papers and digi stamps from the Dreams Come True CD Rom. I love the stitching on this card it is just wonderful.

Last but by no means least I bring you Ruths creation for this month..

I just love the card Ruth has created using the sketch and papers from the Colour Me Happy CD ROM. What a great idea to add the iccicles to the card..we were told on the the DT forum that she buys up Christmas decorations in the January sales ready for next years Christmas cards..now theres a good little tip for you!

Well I hope all this wonderful inspiration will encourage you to join in with our challenge this month. We love to see your creations and visit your blogs.

As Get Funky! has now got through it's first year we have decided that it's time for a bit of a change around. So from the New Year we are going to have a few changes happening around here. We are still working on the finer details but there is going to be much more for you to come and have a look at during the month, each month on the challenge blog and we have decided to change our challenge start date from the first of the month to the Funky 15th! That's just the first of the changes so, we'll see you here at the beginning of next year with the winner of the final Get Funky! challenge for 2010 and by then we will be able to share a few more details about what 2011 is going to involve.

Now, go on Get Funky! and join in with this months challenge we are waiting to see what you create with Kathys fab sketch.

Have a wonderful end to the year from us all here at Funky Hand in the office and on the Design Team.
