I Come Bearing Gifts

Jan is hosting our newest challenge at Little Red Wagon and she's saying, "Don't be shy!" In other words, speak out with more than two words on your creation.


My new Ho Ho Ho background stamp from MFT came in very handy for this challenge. I didn't count the number of times "HO" is repeated, but I'm sure it's more than two! I also made sure that there were more than two words in my sentiment, just to be on the safe side!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see all the wordy sentiments used by the Girlfriends for this week's challenge - and then don't be shy! Join us by linking up your own project using more than two words on your creation.

G'Day Mate

It's Doni's turn to host at Little Red Wagon and she's chosen the theme "Let's Talk Turkey" for this week's challenge. Doni would like to see speech bubbles on our creations!


I used a stamps from My Favorite Things' Aussie Animals set. I realized after looking at my photo that the tree seems to be dangling in space so I'm pretending that the koala is actually on a pogo stick with leaves. The speech bubble frame is a die from My Craft Spot.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out all the speech bubbles and what the Girlfriends have to say! And then link up your own speech bubble project!

Have a Spook-tacular Halloween

Imke is hosting at Little Red Wagon this week and she's saying, "Scary It"! With Halloween being celebrated tomorrow, this is the perfect time to show off your scary Halloween creations.


I'm not sure whether or not my mummy (from Your Next Stamp) qualifies as scary as I think he's kind of cute. However, I might not think so if I stumbled across him late at night. And although I don't mind bats, I would be rather frightened if the night sky was full of them!

Please head to Little Red Wagon to check out the rest of the scary projects - and then link up your own to join in on this week's fun!

I've Been Moose-ing You

I'm thrilled to be hosting this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon. I've chosen the theme "Don't forget about me" and am looking to see any sort of farewell, bon voyage, missing you, happy retirement, good luck with your move, see you later, etc. type creations.


I used MFT's Sweater Weather in the Woods stamp set for my card. I missed out on buying the stamp set when it was first released and had to wait - which was tough as I had fallen in love with the moose image! It finally came available and I'm happy the moose has joined my family.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own "Don't forget about me" project! I can't wait to see what you create!

With Love From Owl of Us

Happy belated "Bring your teddy bear to work" day! Apparently, the second Wednesday of October was the day the world was supposed to carry teddies to work. Who knew? Well, Brenda did - and that's why she she wants to see bears on our projects this week for our latest Little Red Wagon challenge.


I used Wild Woodland from My Favorite Things to create the little scene on my card. My mum is having a birthday next week and I created this card for her.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the bears used creatively by the Girlfriends - and then link up your own project for this week's challenge!

Wishing You a Harvest of Blessings

Jan is our hostess at Little Red Wagon and she wants us to all "Cut It Out!" This doesn't mean she wants us to stop crafting. Rather, she's looking for projects with die cuts or fussy cutting - or any other sort of cuts!


I used wagon and pumpkin dies from My Craft Spot to create my little scene. The sentiment is one from My Favorite Things and the mat/frame were cut from a Mama Elephant set.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then cut out your own images to create something for this week's challenge!

Sending Happy Birthday Vibes

I’ve been wanting to participate in a My Favorite Things challenge for a while and finally created some “me” time in order to do so! I created my card using number of MFT products - including stamps, dies and papers.


I'm entering my card in the challenge for Sketch #457.

I'm So Thankful for You

Everything is pumpkin over at Little Red Wagon this week. Doni is our hostess and she's looking to see lots of pumpkins for this week's challenge.


I used stamps from Gerda Steiner's Fall Mice set to create my happy little card. I used my Copic marker to colour the orange mat to match the pumpkins. I should do that more often!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own pumpkin projects!

Faith, Family, Friends

It's Imke's turn to host at Little Red Wagon this week and she's chosen the theme "Fall It!" This means that Imke would like to see fall-themed projects - from fall leaves to pumpkins to bushels of apples to acorns and beyond. If it's got something to do with fall, it's good to link up at LRW!


I pulled out some autumn-coloured distress inks to create a background and then layered a sentiment and leaves created with supplies from My Craft Spot. The embossed sentiment is a bit tricky to read in the photo. It says, "Faith, Family, Friends - for these we give thanks".

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own fall-themed creations!

I Pick You

I'm so happy to be hosting this week's Little Red Wagon challenge. I've chosen the theme "Apples and Bananas" which basically means that I'm looking for fruit of any kind on your projects.


I pulled out my Harvest Mouse stamp set (which is one of the first stamp sets I ever purchased) to create my little scene. The little mouse is one of my all-time favourite images. He's just so sweet! I didn't realize until I looked at my photo that I seem to have used two different shades of red for the oval frame and mat. Oh well!
