What's that coming over the hill? Is it a monster?

My turn to set the Quirky Crafts Challenge, and I chose Quirky Monsters. Our two sponsors both have some great monster images.

This card is made with a Bugaboo "Pretty Please" monster and sentiment on the front, she clearly wants some cake! Monster coloured with Promarkers and Trias and cut out with a Nestabilities label die, freebie paper from a magazine stitched to the card front, cake ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and birthday sentiment and cake stamps from a Debbi Moore set.

Inside the card I you can see my sad monster is now in a temper so she didn't get her way! You are looking at "temperamental "monster from Bugaboo which I coloured with Promarkers. Freebie papers as before, and all nicely corner rounded as you can see!

Our other sponsor is Doodle Dragon Studios and Dustin Pike provided us with his very latest monster set.

 I used some of the great monsters from Dustin's brand new set available from Doodle Dragon Studios now. I made a tri-fold card and hand cut the hills, and used some freebie paper on those, and some DCWV sky paper. I printed the monsters I used in varying sizes for perspective as I had that song in my head (see post title), and stamped happy birthday with the same Debbi Moore set. I wrote on the monster sign, and all monsters are coloured with Promarkers.

So hop on over to Quirky Crafts Challenge blog to see some more great examples and join the fun, you never know you could win one of the two great prizes on offer!
