Hunkydory Playtime!

I was delighted to be  asked if I would like to review some
Hunkydory products and share my views with you all. 
I chose to use the
 Hunkydory @home usb key no 8
 to play as I have never crafted  with them before ..and i was impressed! I got carried away!
will definitely be making a lot more creations using the usb key.
There are 8 sections to this usb key so there is something for everyone
including......Toppers, Papers, Inserts, Card Stock, Concept Cards and more 

My first make is a 6x6 Easel card 

papers printed from the flight of the butterflies selection printed on A4 matt photo paper

Card no 2
is from the 
Eastern Treasures selection also printed on A4 matt photo paper

Card No 3
is an A5 card from the Party Animals selection

Cards No 4 & 5
are Concept cards made following the instructions which are included on the usb and from the Deco Shimmer selection
this time i printed them onto A3 white cardstock and the quality of the papers remained  perfect
so happy i can do this to make larger cards and use my printer to its full advantage thats a big plus in my book!!

So whats my opinion on the
Hunkydory @home usb key no 8
this will keep me going through out the year the  print quality is superb 
so much content in a variety of easy to use
something for everyone..and I'm still playing and creating
its a big thumbs up from me!
well done Hunkydory!
