It's Your Birthday - Have a Blast!

Happy Extraterrestrial Abductions Day! I didn't even know that there was such a thing but Brenda, this week's hostess at Little Red Wagon told us it is and I have no reason to doubt her. To celebrate the day, Brenda is looking for space projects. You can include an alien or extraterrestrial - or create anything with a space theme!


I used some products from Your Next Stamp for my rocket-through-space birthday card. It's for a little guy who's turning 10 so I used some mini number stamps to add his age to the spaceship.

Thanks So Much

This week's Little Red Wagon challenge is being hosted by Jan again - and she's got another fun one for us: Boyz II Men! Jan wants to see anything masculine.


I pulled out a stamp set from Mama Elephant that I've not used in ages to create my thank you card. In fact, I decided to make two - one to say thanks and one for a birthday!

This Stinks.

Jan is hosting at Little Red Wagon this week and she's looking for lions and lambs - and any other creature that one might find outdoors. Although we love our pets, we don't want to see them this week.


Looking through my stamps, I thought that nothing says "outdoor animal" like a skunk! Although I've heard that some people get them de-stinkified and bring them indoors to love, I've never seen one anywhere other than outdoors so decided to go with the black and white critter for my project.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then join the fun with a project using an outdoor animal!

Sending You a Smile on Your Birthday

Imke is hosting this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon and she's saying "Love It!" She wants us to create projects with anything to do with love - whether it's the word "love" in the sentiment, a technique we love, a creation for somebody we love, etc., etc.!! We're hoping that lots of you will join in the fun!


I love cats - so I decided to create a card with a cat theme. The cats on the card are coloured in the liking of my own three cats (although the centre one should really be black). I also love my aunty who will soon be celebrating her birthday and made this card for her. I used my Scan 'N Cut to cut the images - and I do love my Scan 'N Cut! It's paid for itself with the money I've saved not buying dies for all my images.

You are Pawsome

Happy Wednesday! I'm thrilled to be hosting at Little Red Wagon this week and I've chosen the theme, "Baby, it's cold outside!" Although I am not a fan of winter and the cold, I'm looking for projects that celebrate winter and all it has to offer.


I decided to create a little skating scene for my card. I don't think I stirred my Gesso quite well enough as it was a bit too liquidy when I created my stenciled snowy background - but I rather like the look of the larger flakes. I learned this year that snowflakes are larger when the temperatures are closer to 0 degrees - and I'm all about rising temperatures!!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then join the fun by linking your own winter-themed project. I can't wait to see what you create!

You are Space-cial

Brenda is hosing at Little Red Wagon this week and she wants us to "Move on". No, this does not mean that she wants us to go to different blogs or switch from crafting hobbies to something else. She simply wants to see movement of some sort on our creations - from spinners, wobbles, googly eyes, pull tabs, pop-ups, and so on!


I did double-duty with my card and used an Action Wobble for my little spaceship and googly eyes to dress up my alien. The fun little stamp and sentiment are from Your Next Stamp.

Please move on to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the girlfriends have created - and then create your own movement project!

I've Never Met a Cupcake I Didn't Like

Jan's hosting at Little Red Wagon this week and she's calling out "Hello, Sweetie"! She's challenging us to anything sweet on our projects - from a sweet treat to something that makes us think "Oh! That's so sweet!" to the word sweet itself.


I must have been a bit hungry when I decided on my take for the challenge and went with a sweet treat.

Please check out the rest of the projects at Little Red Wagon and then link up your own sweet creation!

Welcome Little One

Heather is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's chosen the theme "Winter Blues" - which seems quite fitting given the cold and snowy weather that we've been having in Central Ontario. I was made for sun, sand and palm trees so am not overly impressed!! However, the nasty weather is a wonderful excuse to hibernate in my craft room to create a card with shades of blue.


I decided to think happy thoughts and created a welcome card for a baby boy! I used my Zig watercolour markers, water and a paintbrush to create my striped background before adding some stenciled hearts. I also painted the frame using the blue used for my middle stripe. A sweet little hedgehog, sentiment and little heart embellishments finished things off.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then chase the winter blues away by creating something blue!!

Merci

Imke is telling us to "Stick it!" this week at Little Red Wagon. She wants to see washi tape on our projects.



A couple of years ago, I got some lovely Paris-themed washi tape which has been sitting in its tin since! Imke's challenge theme was the perfect opportunity to bring it out and put it to use. My card was an easy one to put together as the flower is pre-made and came as part of a grab bag that I won at Simon Says Stamp.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the girlfriends have created - and then pull out your washi tape to join the fun with us!

I Fancy You

It's time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon and I'm thrilled to be hosting this week! I've chosen the theme "Time Will Tell" and am looking for anything to do with time - clocks, watches, calendars, etc.


I used MFT's Happy Hello to create my card with a little version of Big Ben in the background. With Valentine's Day around the corner, I opted to use the opportunity to create a card for the occasion. As my kids are all born in August, we always celebrate half-birthdays on Valentine's Day so I've got extra incentive to create for that!!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own "Time Will Tell" projects. I can't wait to see what you make!
