Quirky Red OR Pink + Black AND White

     It's time for the February challenge at Quirky Crafts!  Remember, all our challenges will begin on the first Sunday of the month and end on the 28th day of that month.  We will also publish a reminder on the third Sunday of each month.   We have a new theme this month:  Let's "Quirky use Red OR Pink + black AND white."  How easy is that?

     This month, we have "The Cutting Cafe" as our fantastic sponsor and they generously supplied digis and .svg files to the DT.

Out theme fit perfectly with
the colors from the challenge at The Outlawz
so I used them and added hearts for their twist.

     I used the basic wheelbarrow, colored it with ProMarkers, then die cut it (stitched die - Lawn Fawn, scalloped circle die - Spellbinders).  I fussy cut the hearts (part of the sets from The Cutting Cafe) and added them to the wheelbarrow (since I don't have anything that uses .svg files.)   I also fussy cut and added the wheel which has a heart on it.  I love that these Cutting Cafe files can be used either with a machine or by fussy cutting!

    The heart with the sentiment is another die cut (Spellbinders) as are the leaves (Cheery Lynn.)   I made the little flowers by punching the shapes and adding a gem to the center of each one.
