Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges

Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges the place where any craft project is allowed.

We're a small design team with big inspiration.

On the first Sunday of the month, at 6pm UK time, we will set a new challenge which will close on the 28th of that month at midday. The DT will pick their top three favourites and you could win a prize and join us as a Guest Designer. Winners are posted on the first Sunday in the month (midday usually) before the new challenge - don't forget to come and check if you are a winner.

Challenge #24 It's Nearly Quirky Christmas! (And A Quirky DT Call!)

Thank you to everyone who joined in  the last Challenge by adding a feather to their fantastic projects! And thank you to our sponsors too! To see the winners go here, or scroll down!
It's the end of the year and we were thinking we really need some more Quirky crafters! (card makers, mixed media artists we need you!) - interested? If so, contact Cazzy using the links or form in the sidebar or put DT after your name on your entry. If you've never been on a Design Team before, this is the place to have a go! Please bear with Cazzy - her computer is very poorly at the moment so she might not get back to you right away. In fact apologies to our lovely guests - your badges will be made when Cazzy's computer is well again.  Good news - it is fixed, and Cazzy will sort out badges and winners tomorrow. (Yippee Cazzy!)
Back to the post! This is Lyn. I was thinking about the  last creations I added to last weeks challenge post  and was suddenly in the mood for making Christmas Cards, and seeing it's almost upon us, that's my next challenge for you!!
 Anything Christmas!
  Any crafty project is acceptable as usual.
  Our Super Sponsors this time are...


Proud Designer for Digital Delights
 Guest Designers
Elena used the lovely "Chibi reindeer" provided by Bugaboo Stamps to make a gorgeous Christmas ornament.

Margreet makes a lovely Christmas gift box with "Big Present", a lovely digi provided by Ditzie Designs aka That Craft Place.

(sorry the next two cards are a little late, due to Cazzy's computer problems)
Cristina used a Bugaboo image she had already to make this lovely red and white card.

Susan used Mixie from Ditzie Designs, isn't she pretty? A non traditional Christmas card that any little girl would love!

Design Team

For my Christmas card I used the adorable "Gift Giving Cedric", provided by Digital Delights.
My today´s first project is a tag. I used the Gift Giving Cedric from our sponsor Digital Delights.

My second one, also a tag, using the sweet twinkle, from  Ditzie Designs aka That Craft Place.
will be here later

As usual I'm running late so I've added this card, using two Bugaboo snowmen.lil-snowman/star and Lil-Snowman, which I've 3D-ed and coloured with Promarkers. You too can back-link, providing, we haven't seen your creation in any of our challenges and it's no older than ten days old!

  Here's my 'real' DT card for this challenge using  "Gift Giving Cedric" from  Digital Delights.
I've finally managed to print out four of him, (my computer run out of coal again!) coloured him with Promarkers,and then cut him up so I could 3D him. I've added extra stick-on presents, loads of Stickles Glitter, red gems and a bit of holly as well as a snowflake button and ribbons. The papers were free from a crafting mag. They're called 'Me to You'  The sentiment was done on the computer.
