A little Quirky!

Happy Sunday to you!
This fortnight I have the pleasure to be a Guest Designer for Quirky Crafts Challenges!  It's so fun to guest design!  And it's fun to be a little quirky for a few weeks.  I have a question tho- how does one go about being quirky?  LOL Maybe we could start by entering this fortnight's challenge with the theme- Bright and Dark AND Not a Square or Rectangle!  Just reading this great challenging theme makes my head quirky!  Yours, too? LOL

Here is my GDT card for Quirky CraftsThe image is Butterfly Profile and you can find it in the StitchyBear Digital Store:

I figured since no squares or rectangles were allowed with this theme, that pretty much left me with circles or ovals, unless you are one of those creative people that make shaped cards!  This is a plain ol' round easel! LOL

The sponsors for this Quirky Challenge are StitchyBear and Louby Loo Digital DelightsQuirky Challenges are so cool because they give out digi wins to the Top 3!  I like that!

The little "KNOW" metal word-art tag is from Tim Holtz.  I put "know" because I thought one could write "Know....that I love you." Or something like that.  But then I started making myself laugh with all the "know" things I came up with, then laughed even harder thinking of my husband!  He use to say "know what I mean?" after almost every sentence!  Just a habit he had and it was sooo annoying, know what I mean?  LOLOL  Thank goodness, he doesn't say it anymore! 

Well, this is it for today.  I'll be back tomorrow with a little news I received on Friday.  A big deal to me and I want to share it with you, my friends!

I hope you'll make it over to Quirky Crafts this next fortnight.  The girls would be delighted to see your masterpieces!  Thank you, Quirky, so very much for having me as your Guest Designer.  It is definitely Quirky!

Thank you to my new follower, SamaraSuch a talented lady.  Thank you to all my followers and special thanks to you that stop and leave such lovely comments.  I really do savor each one!!!  Makes me feel special.

Good day to you, my friends!

  1. Oh my, Manderly, I *love* what you've done with this card! Your colouring on the image is just stunning - so soft and so lifelike! And I absolutely adore the way you've cut out and layered some of the butterflies. Oooh and all the gorgeous flowers and die-cuts and ribbon. It's just so strikingly pretty! :)

    I'm absolutely thrilled to see someone create something so gorgeous using one of my stamps! :)

  4. Your designing is fabulous Manderly. The colours are stunningly gorgeous together. I love what you did with the butterflies and adding the flowers is a great touch. Your colouring and shadings are superb. Amazing! How do you keep wow-ing us?!! xx Kathy

  5. Oh my gosh! I wish you could see me right now! I am totally entranced by your beautiful card! This is so gorgeous! Just actually took my breath away! Woooh! Well, before I saw your card, I was going to tell you that I have been described by my friends as "Quirky" and I have never known what they mean, so if you find out, let me know....but if it is something as wonderful as your creation, than I am happy to be quirky!


    P.S. Did you enter this in the Mother's Day Challenge at I wish you would.

  6. Oh wait...I guess you can't enter it since you are on the design!
