Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges

Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges the place where any craft project is allowed.

We're a small design team with big inspiration.

Once a fortnight we set a new challenge which will begin on a Sunday and close at midday on the Saturday before the next challenge. The DT will pick their top three favourites and you could win a prize and join us as a Guest Designer. Winners are posted separately on Sunday just before the new challenge is posted so scroll down to check if you are a winner.

Challenge 38: Spyder's Quirky Sketch

Hi Peoples! It's Challenge Time again here on the Quirky Crafts Blog, and this time we have a sketch by little ol' me!! Spyder, aka Lyn. It's nice and easy so we look forward to seeing Hundreds of entries!! We'd love to see any form of altered art, scrapbook pages, ATC's, Tags, as well as cards of course. Feel free to rotate the sketch, add bits, invert it or use it in any way you wish, change the circles to squares if you wish, just so long as we can still see the sketch within your work. We also have a fabulous guest designer on the team this week, Kelly who won Challenge #36 with a lovely Snowman Christmas Card! Well done Kelly, we love your GDT Forever Friends Christmas Card even more!

Sadly Anne, Chocolate Fudge Cake, has decided to leave us but has promised to join in with our challenges whenever she can. We will miss you Anne, Big hugs and Good Luck in everything you do!
So who won last weeks challenge? Oh it was sooo hard to decide! They were all lovely and it was a very hard challenge, so me myself and I have (and the other DT members of course) decided that all of you have won, all four of you!
