Get Funky Funky 15th and oooooh Betty!!!

Morning peeps!!!

Well its the 15th of January and I am super excited for 2 reasons today!! 

1. today is the day when the Funkette's get their funk back on over on the Get Funky challenge blog!!!  Allison has set the challenge this month with a theme of 'Going round in circles' and because we are all so funky we are doing it a bit differently this month. Allison is starting us off today with her gorgeous circles theme ad has her awesome creation on the blog already, then every 3 days another DT member will add their bit of fabulousness ( i know this because i have peeked a few and they are delicious so you won't want to miss them!)
All you need to do is make your circle theme project, be it circle shaped or paper with circles in the design.
The only thing we ask is that you please include at least one funky hand product in your entry.
Now, don't fear if you don't have any Funky Hand papers because you will find a gorgeous freebie here in the Funky Hand store.

now for reason number 2 of excitedness...........
Betty is here!!!! wooohoooo!!! i have tentively been spending a couple of hours a day this week watching the Betty release countdown over on the shop!!! romfl!!! and I am so excited because it means I can share a bit of Betty on my blog now!!!! and here she is in all her Betty-ness!!!

I coloured her up with my promarkers and popped her on this cute little easel card. The little button holding up the easel is actually the 'love' heart' shaped stamp from the set with a little shrinkie treatment!!!!

There are 4 collections of Betty and I have to tell you she stamps like a dream, I have had so much fun with her and I love her to bits. I got the Love 'n' that set to play with and its so versatile. Along with Betty there are oodles of yummy little bits and sentiments too so they really are great sets. I am so excited about them. Please check out the little slide shows under the stamp collections over on the Funky Hand site as the Funkette's have been making some gorgeous bits with her.

Sentiment from the same set.
Papers- Heart paper from Now Thats Funky from Funky Hand.
Black ribbed cardstock from my stash!!

Well, I have had a daft attack of my Lou nerves this morning, I get quite fed up with myself when I am having days like this. Instead I will be staring out of my living room window stalking the postman (....who in true Lincolnshire postie fashion has not bought me a package I really really want....!!!!)
Don't forget to get yourself over to the Get Funky challenge blog and check out Allison's gorgeous card ( she used Betty!!)
