Boys Will Be Boys - New Release Blog Hop

Good Morning and a very Happy Monday to you all :)
To celebrate the release of the fabulous new papers Boys will be Boys we are having a blog hop to show you just a little taster of what you can do with the new download. Get involved in the blog hop and you could be in with the chance of winning the new Boys will be Boys download set and a Bot digital stamp (a fab, fab prize!).

These papers are fabulous and I have had a wonderful time playing with them. There's also a brilliant new digi character Bot, and while you don't have to use him with the papers, he does work wonderfully with them!
The papers and Bot are available to buy in the Funky Hand shop from 9am today.

The hop will be starting over on Anice's Funky Hand Thoughts blog and is open from

 Monday 30th September at 5:00am GMT until 12 midnight GMT Tuesday 1st October
The winner will be announced at 8am on Wednesday 2nd October.

So hopefully you have come from Ruth's blog to me but if not, there's a list below for you to follow. And here's what I have made:

A funky paper-pieced car which is perfect for the little (and big men!) in your life. All of the papers are from the download and you can see how they work so well together and complement one another perfectly. I love this card. It's very simple but fun too. I hope you like it too.
So, now you've seen what I've made, it's time to head on over to Tabbatha to see what delights she has created. Good luck with the competition and happy blogging!!
I look forward to seeing you all soon, love Sammylou xXx
And here's the Hop Order (just in case!):

Christmas Collections Blog Hop!!!

Hello all and welcome to the Funky Hand Christmas Collections Blog Hop!! How exciting?!

So, the Funkettes are having a blog hop to celebrate the release of the 2013 Christmas downloads from Funky Hand. These beauties aren't officially available until Sunday 8th September 2013 but we'd thought we'd show you all a sneak peek and give one lucky winner the chance to win a download collection of your choice.

As you would expect, the collections have some absolutely fabulous papers, wordbooks and some seasonal digistamps too.  In fact. everything you will need to make your  Christmas cards truly stand out this year!

So here's a couple of cards I have made. Firstly a Christmas tree using the Noel doodleword and papers from the Sleigh Ride collection:

The second card is made using the Merry Christmas doodleword and papers from Silent Night:

 The blog hop starts on Anice's Funky Hand blog and is open from 8.30am GMT Saturday 7 September to Midnight GMT Sunday 8 September.
Each of us will have a letter and you will need to comment, retrieve the letter, solve the anagram and pop the answer (along with your favourite download) on the Get Funky and Craft blog to be in with a chance of winning. 

My letter is I!

I'm hoping that you've come to visit me via Ruth but if  not here's a recap of the blog order:
