Challenge #24 Going Around In Quirky Circles

Hello Quirky people! Lyn here... well, in spirit if not in body! Thank you to all those who joined in with our last challenge. To see the winners, please scroll down or click Here
As usual I'm running around in circles chasing my tail, meeting myself coming back and getting there before I've left...so this fortnights challenge, is just that.. Going Around In Circles. They can be embossed, they can be die-cuts, they can be half circles, whole circles, tiny circles, BIG circles. Any kind of circle, circle shapes,  circle cards, lots of circle's or just one, as long as there's a circle or circles on your crafty project, (and yes! Dots are circles too!) So, come and join in!
 This time we are sponsored by the one and only...

First place: 3 digi images from Crackerbox
Second place: 2 digi images from Crackerbox
Third place: 1 digi image from Crackerbox

You can choose your digi images from the stamps on sale, any of the stamps can be bought as digi images for just $3 by contacting our sponsor.

The bird related images that the team have used today were generously provided by Crackerbox Palace and can be found HERE!

Here are some lovely designs from our guest designers...

I used the stamps from our sponsor in my Telescoping Card!!

Mariangelina made circles with flowers in them on her pretty tag.

 And here are a few more creations from our Design Team...

To make my card, I used the branch digi provided by our sponsor. It is colored with a mix of Spectrum Noir pens and Prismacolor pencils.


Hi everyone!! For this challenge I make a snowglobe!  I used the  House digi,  provided by our sponsor Cracker Box Palace. I coloured with acuarerable pencils and Distress Inks.  

 Doris - will be along later.

This is my first ever rocker card, and I made quite a few errors (if you want to know what they are you will need to look at my blog post - can you spot an obvious one here?).
I made a little scene in a circle, and the base is a folded circle, I even found a circular sentiment that fits so well with the theme! I coloured the images, including the backing paper, with Promarkers and Graph'it pens. Rock on!


And here's my little card. It's brown, covered with circle patterned paper. I've used the bird house, which I've 3D-ed along with the little birds from our Sponsor, both coloured with Promarkers. I've used round die cut letters for 'New' and ribbon for 'Home' (I think those little birds will love it!) Freebie Papers are by Shery K. Design.
