Over at Quirky Crafts we have two sponsors this month, Bugaboo and Limited Runs. I have not managed to do any papercrafting for this challenge so I have found a couple of cards I made for previous challenges, I hope you will forgive me. In fact things started off well when we started challenges once more, and I had good intentions then my Dad was diagnosed with the same cancer that killed my hubby last year, and he collapsed a few weeks before Easter and died Easter Sunday. Talk about kicking a person when they are already down!
Because of that and having to do a lot more for my mum, as well as mother in law, and sorting various things out I haven't had the time or energy to papercraft. I did start to sort out my craft stuff and put it in my new unit, and I have been revamping storage in the craft room but there is no space to craft right now for stuff that needs sorting!
The first card is made using Bugaboo digis, Ladybug Stack and Birdie Told me. A stamped background on this one.
This challenge will close on the 23rd of the month when Inlinkz subs run out!
Due to my problems this will be the last challenge for a few months, Quirky will take a long Summer break and might be back in a new format, there is a lot of thinking and working out to do but we hope to go back to more stamping and mixed media, and we really would love some non digi sponsors, real stamp sponsors to compliment the regular sponsors that have been so good to us.

Quirky Crafts Challenges: Challenge #2: Quirky Pet's: Hello there it is Tinz here with your new challenge at our re-vamped Quirky Challenge Blog. It is a pleasure to be working with these...

Quirky Crafts challenges are back, and we need at least one more person on the team so we are having a DT call as well.
The first challenge of 2017 is set by me and is Called Quirky Picture This. I want you to use a photo either the actual photo on your project, or to be inspired by the colours, layout, elements of your favourite photo, and if you don't use the whole photo on your make you need to show us the photo you used.
I didn't know if I was going to be able to make something, it's been a long time and my mojo was gone, but I did it! I printed four photos of my dogs, well mostly of my new rescue dog Luna who has been here two months now since flying from Cyprus with just one of Sooty at the bottom. Life has never been the same, and I have had to buy new footwear and a shoe cupboard with doors to keep her from the shoes and boots! The top photo shows the first shoe of mine she destroyed!
The photo of her sitting is when she first arrived, sitting looking cute in her new crocheted jumper with pretty buttons to put it on - until she chewed them all off making holes in the process! Now it is sewn together and has to go over her head and has a few chunks missing!
Our sponsors for this challenge are Bugaboo and Crafty Ribbons, and all the cute digi dogs I used are part of the same set called Bugvalpup. I had to get some of the Instagram camera ribbon for this too, and more muddy paws ribbons. I also added buttons, twine and an odd sequin. I coloured the pups and hearts with Graph'it markers, and found that the canvas paper I used is very absorbent and it's impossible to blend, the ink just dries instantly.
The canvas is mounted on a frame which was part of a set destined for the charity shop, it seemed like a good idea to try using it.
I finished the picture with muddy paws ribbon all round the outside.
Hop on over to Quirky and see what the rest of the team have made and maybe join in the fun!
