You're Super in Every Way

Wednesday, May 18, 2022
I'm thrilled to be hosting this week's Little Red Wagon challenge and, in keeping with my Beatles' themes this year, I've chosen "A Little Help From My Friends" to guide our mojo. I'm looking for projects for friends - whether they be thank you projects, projects of encouragement or celebration - or anything else that celebrates friendship. 

I used a few different MFT products to create this card and had fun inking the background. I thought the sentiment was just perfect for this challenge.

I am using some of my vacation days this week and am enjoying time in my trailer. It's a bit cool but I'm having a lovely time! And this weekend, I've plans to get away with one of my best friends. We've been friends since grade school! 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' projects - and then create something for one of your friends to join this week's challenge. I'm excited to see what you make!

Amazing, Marvelous Grace

It's the wonderful Brenda's turn to host this week's Little Red Wagon challenge and she's chosen the theme "Make it bloom". Brenda is looking for flowers of all colours, shapes and sizes. Spring has finally hit South-Central Ontario and I'm delighting in the flowers blooming all around me. 

Over Lent, I focused on the word "grace". I created a Lenten journal in which I wrote out a verse each day (and also included little poems, prayers and song lyrics). I really enjoyed the process. Earlier this year, I also purchased a creative slimline Bible. Every other page is blank and the idea is to take words of encouragement and inspiration (or to journal). I haven't done as much as I'd like, but this is a page I did to focus on grace. The page has lots of flowers stamped with an ancient Stampin' Up set so I'm "Making it bloom!". The sentiment was created with different stamps from My Favorite Things and Ranger.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see all the flowers used on the creations of the Girlfriends - and then "Make it bloom" on your own projects! 

I Believe In You

Jan is hosting this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon and she wants us to "Feature Fun Folds". Anything goes, as long as it's got more than one fold. 

I wasn't sure what to do for this challenge so went to Google to explore others' creations. When I came across Songbird Stamper's Multifold Card Tutorial, I loved the look and decided to give it a go. The instructions were fabulously clear and this card ended up being quite quick and easy to put together. Really, it's just some scoring, cutting, folding and gluing. 

There are multiple folds on the belly band too!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see all the folds - and then multi-fold your way into this week's challenge. 

Wishing You Sunnier Days Ahead

I'm delighted to announce that Doni is back to rejoin the Little Red Wagon design team! She's taken part in the past couple of challenges and now she's hosting. She's chosen the theme "Save me from April showers" and she's looking for us to use umbrellas on our creations.

I used MFT's "Weather with me" set again. I'd used it for my project two weeks ago and decided to make a card for this week's challenge while the set was still out. We've had a few rainy and snowy days in the past couple of weeks and I'm really hoping we'll soon be moving on to sun!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have made - and then create your own project with an umbrella to join this week's fun! 

Easter Treats

Wednesday, April 20, 2022
It's Chrissy's turn to host this week's Little Red Wagon challenge and she's asking us, "What did you make for Easter?" This is the time for you to showcase your projects!

Easter is hands-down my favourite holiday. Most of the things I made were made in the kitchen. I even tried Hot Cross Buns for the first time. Yum! These cupcakes have some paper toppers so I thought they would fit the challenge quite nicely. 

As we were setting up for our Easter lunch, Skimbleshanks had his eye on the treats too!

I also had a few treat toppers and packages left over from other years and used them for little giveaway packages this year. 

What did you make for Easter? We'd love to see! Head over to Little Red Wagon to link up your projects - and to see what the rest of the Girlfriends created too!
