Good morning on what is forecast to be another lovely day in the UK and welcome to another fabulous Blog Hop care of Anice, Ian and the Funky Hand Gang!
This weekend we are celebrating the release (on Sunday) of another fabulous download by our super talented leader, no, not Ian....I mean the BOSS, Anice :) as I'm last on the list you should know what I'm talking about by now as the details are on the blogs of all those who come before me.
Spring is definitely in the air this weekend as the new download is called "Spring Has Sprung" It's a really pretty selection of pastel coloured papers and will be available to buy from Sunday 25th March and I just love it :)
Here are a couple of the samples I made with the fabulous download
So now you've seen the samples made by the dt you should be drooling good and proper (not long to wait now) so I will shut up and let you get on with a chance of winning the download for yourself. All the rules and regs are on Anice's blog.
You should have come to me from Allison's blog and you will need a letter from me, which is the letter
The beautiful paper kit is now available to buy from Funky Hand.

It's time for another one of Kathy's wonderful sketches and this month it's a corker!! I took one look at the sketch and thought "OMG what am I supposed to do with that, it's way too difficult!) :)" However it turned out that finding matching paper snippets proved to be more challenging than the sketch lol Iam on a resl mission about not using new sheets of paper until my snippets are all gone and I couldn't find enough for the card. I then remembered having some of the Funky Hand downloadable papers in my bags. The papers can be bought from here and here
and here is my effort so far (I have used the sketch for a couple of LOs so will reveal those another day.)
As well as the pink and white sweets below and the fishbowl., do I need anuyhing else?
And so to my card
thanks for looking.
PS guess who forgot to add this card to the Pixie's Snippet playground!!!
work desk? Yes people, Wednesday has arrived once more and this time I WILL make more of an effort to check out more crafty desks!
If you would like to join in with our nosy tour of work desks then please check out Julia's Blog

I've been meaning to post these photos since I got back from the wedding fayre yesterday but I got stuck into sorting my room out and forgot all about them. This was the first time I have been to a Pastures Lodge Hotel wedding fayre, I have made the stationery and table decorations for a couple of weddings there but have never actually been to a wedding fayre. We had quite a good day even though it didn't stop raining once all day.
I'm still stuck into my stationery for the wedding on 24th but have almost finished. I've been making labels all day for 150 cake boxes :)
I must go and do a bit more before bed. Take care and I will see you tomorrow with the new sketch for Kathy's Waffle Sketch File

The Less Is More challenge this week is
This one is done in shades of beige and brown with off cuts from the latest down loads from Funky Hand which are Steam Funk and Funky Kraft Stash, both can be found by clicking the links.
This one is the black and off white colour combination. The ribbon is an off cut off my tip of a desk and the flower is cut from a lovely shimmer paper but I don't know where it's from (I think it might have been a sample from somewhere). The glittered numbers are by Papermania and the gems are from my box.
Thanks for popping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. I'm getting my stuff ready this evening for a wedding fayre tomorrow and my plan for Sunday evening is TV and blog hopping, I'm seriously behind with WOYWW this week!
PS I just remembered that I haven't added it to Di's Snippet challenge!
