It's A New Quirky Challenge!

Quirky Craft's fortnightly challenges have started up again! This week we have some lovely Guest Designers showing you their fabulous makes. Claire Easson's pretty new baby card. Ali's (Aqualeiga's Escape) funky Happy New Year Card and Denise's Beautiful Day 2011 calendar! So please pop over and have a peek!
This New Challenge, first of the New Year, has been set by the lovely Caro
New Beginnings
You can take that in any way you want. Your project can be about something new, the New Year, (Of course) a new baby, a new home, a new job, new engagement, in fact anything NEW or a celebration of something new. (Maybe not the new socks you had for Christmas... but on second thoughts, that would fit in!) And as it's the first challenge of the New Year you can also use any of your new crafting stash, but be sure to tell us what the new items you've used are. (see I told you it was easy!)
Here's my DT card. I've gone for New Home. All the papers I've used are new and are by Forever Friends. I've cut them with my new pink maxi guillotine and my new deckled edged Nesties. I also won some clear stamps, some Promakers and a £10 voucher just before Christmas, so have used this cute kitty, Molly Cat with Bird House from The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs. (Thank you!!) I 3D-ed the kitty, bird house and bird and coloured them with the new Promakers! (I bought a few more Promakers with the voucher)
The sentiment was done on the computer. The font is a freebie, it's called MTF PlayTime, and it's from Miss TiinaFonts, (Link is always on side bar) So, all you have to do now is pop over to the...
and join in!! Thank you for stopping by!
