It's Just a Little Quirky Number!

Well, it just had to be that title really, didn't it! My turn to set the new challenge over on the Quirk Crafts Challenge blog and I've chosen...
Easy Peezy! It means all you have to use on your crafty creation, is a number or numbers! 25th of December! Happy 99th Birthday! Numbered papers, a shaped Numbers card. A numbers charm. A ticket number, a bingo card. If you can number it, it will fit into the challenge! Pop over and see what the other DT members have done! Here's my tuppence worth! I've used Ridley Birthday with his birthday cup cake from our Sponsors...
I've coloured Ridley with my Promakers. I'm never quite sure if that's a tongue or his teeth in front. In the store it's red...but I'm sure it's supposed to be his teeth! So I've left them white.
I've also 3D-ed him. There's a Ridley on the embossed Nestibilites deckled edged die-cut, (minus a bit of cake and a bit of ear) then there's a whole Ridley and then there's a Ridley without his tail and the top of his head...(ohooo a little bit Silence of the Lambs coming out in that I think...sshhsowooosh)
The papers are from w-w-way back, a small backing paper booklet, which came with a magazine, no links for that I'm afraid but you must have seen the font on commercial cards and other places. It's called Curlz MT and yes, you can download it for free HERE (other sites are available!)
I've also added brads, card candi, ribbon and green and yellow card, which I bought on line years ago and it's still in its bag!
Now, I have a little tip, if you make a card, like this one, which opens from the bottom and you're going to put some thing '
out side' the size of your card, like the sentiment, cut a bit off the card first, so it'll still fit into it's envelope or make a bigger envelope! And!! If you want to take a picture of the inside, take it before you fix the sentiment on the front..otherwise you can't turn it inside out if the sentiment is stuck on the top, like it is here! It reads, "We won't count the candles, we'll just eat the cake! Happy Birthday You Ol' Raccoon!" (for my Bro-in-law I think!)
I've added a few challenges, but blogger is being VERY slow and wouldn't save some of them! I've been out in the sunshine....yep, someone's left the door open and I escaped! Have a Crafty week! Thanks for stopping by! oh...just thought, the font on this bottom card where I've typed in Spyder's Corner, is also a freebie, it's called A Little Pot and you can download it HERE Bye for now!!
