It's Shaking Quirky Cutieness!

Did you guess??? Cutieness?? Is that a word? No, probably not! Firstly, before I say any more, thank you to everyone who joined in with The Quirky Craft's first (in blog-land) Challenge! (Valentine's/Foreign) I had great fun hopping round to all your blogs and having a good shifty at everything you'd made. There really is a fabulously lot of talented crafters out there!
Fe-fe set the last Challenge, and she has already announced the winner over on the Challenge Blog... but just in case you've missed it...the winner was...Drum rolled please Sid...oops..Sid's got flu, so let's ask Peter to ring one of his fabulous bells!!

Well Done Susan, a lovely take on the challenge. A beautifully made 'Paris Scene!'

The New Quirky Craft's Challenge this time has been set by the one and only Gez and it's...
(Another bell ring please Peter....thank you! )


You can create anything you like for the challenge, a card, scrapbook page, ATC, fat page, altered art etc. but it must have a cute theme.

Once again The Challenge is being sponsored by
The Cutting Cafe
who are kindly giving the winner of this challenge three downloads of their choice. Pop over to Quirky Craft's Blog to see what all the Design Team have come up with this time! You have until Saturday 6th March to enter for this challenge and the winner will be chosen by Gez, the Design Team member who set the challange.

There's still time if you want to apply for the Quirky Crafts design team. You have until 28th Feb.

I've made one of my favourites, a shaker card, using A Penny Black Stickeroo. The wording comes from the Cutting Cafe. As you can see, once more, I couldn't make up my mind on which sentiment to use, so took two pictures with different words and even added extra cuteness on the second with two mice as well as the cat!
The lovely papers I used are from Papermania, 'Blueberry Hill' A5 pack. The tiny little heart buttons are really cute (I think so!) I've sewn some tiny beads to them to make them even cuter! I've used Woodware punches to make the flowers and leaves. The yellow brads are from my stash, a Martha Stewart punch for the lace effect. The ribbon is in fact pink but looks a little peachy in the photo. I've used tiny little white, pink and blue beads inside the shaker window. Hope you like the challenge. I think it's a really easy one , who doesn't love CUTE??? I can't wait to come and visit all your blogs!! Have fun and good luck!!
