I am Funkie!

I am so excited to announce that I am part of the new "Frilly and Funkie" challenge blog!  From the day that Linda sent me an invitation, I have had such a hard time containing my excitement, to be included with such a fabulous grouping of talent!  A big thank you, Linda!!  Today is my debut over at "Frilly and Funkie", but I wanted to give you a little peek!  Please stop by F&F to read all about the challenges, our reveals and to learn about "Giveaways."
The tattered flower was cut from grungeboard and I used a new technique from Tim's Holtz, " A Compendium of Curiosities #2"  Out of fairness to Tim, I won't go into the details of this technique, but strongly encourage you to invest in the "book of knowledge."  I did adapt his idea to suit my purposes as I wanted to add color in a different manner. 
Now each day until the launch of the first Frilly and Funkie challenge on March 28th, there will be a new DT reveal!  Please stop by each of the DT's blog and comment for a chance to win a generous $25.00 gift certificate to Linda's Funkie Junkie's Boutique.   There will be blog challenge prizes also, so come on and play along with us Frilly and Funkie gals!

Tim's Book, Grungeboard, Inks, Stains, Rock Candy Crackle, Tissue Wrap, Vintage Lace die and Filigree Metal can all be purchased at Linda's ZIBBET store.  Now not only are these products priced below MSRP, but if you use this coupon code MARCH10, you will receive an additional 10% discount.  There are some really unique items as well as the many needed products. 

On a personal note, I am very sorry for my lack of blogging over the last week plus.  I was really hit hard with a nasty flu bug that just would not go away and wiped me out.  Don't think for one minute that I won't be making it up to you as now I am feeling better and am catching up on all my DT work!  Hugs to all of you and have a fabulous weekend!
