Hello Friend

It's Imke's turn to host at Little Red Wagon and she's saying "Just a Sentiment". We're able to include a bit more on our projects, but the focus needs to be on the sentiment itself.


I used some die cut letters for "HELLO" and a little stamp for "friend". I pulled out my Distress Oxide for the smooshed background and added a few splatters to the letters. I decided my card needed just a little something more so added a sweet tiny mouse to finish things off.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then create your own sentiment-focused project to link up!

Feel Better

Happy Wednesday - and Happy Halloween! I'm hosting at Little Red Wagon this week and have chosen the challenge "Regal and Royal" - anything to do with kings and queens, princes and princesses, castles and the like.


Quite often when I pick a challenge, I have something specific in mind, and often it's based on a newish product that I'm encouraging myself to use. I must have spotted some sort of prince/princess set and not actually purchased it for when it came time to make my project, I realized that I had nothing that fit the theme!! Fortunately, I found a fun digi stamp of the Princess and the Pea (found HERE on the Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamp blog) and went with that. I had lots of fun colouring in the image!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created. And then get out your own Regal and Royal products (or find something online like I did!) to create and link a project for this week's challenge. I can't wait to see your take!

Happy Birthday

It's Brenda's turn to host at Little Red Wagon and she's chosen the theme "Damsel in Distress". Pull out your distressed inks and put them to work on your creations this week! You're also welcome to distress your project in other ways too (e.g., inked edges, torn papers, etc.).


For my card, I heat embossed some flower stamped images (from a freebie set that came with a magazine) and then used some Shaded Lilac distress ink to blend from bottom to top of my panel. I then spritzed a bit of water before adding my sentiment, created with a word die and some more heat embossing.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created. We'd love for you to "Distress It" too!

Thank You Dairy Much

It's Heather's turn to host at Little Red Wagon this week and her theme is "Thankful For You". Heather would like to see thank you projects.


I decided to create a fun little thank you card using products from My Favorite Things. I kept things monotone with the exception of the red sentiment strip.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out the other Girlfriends' projects - and then make and link a thank you creation of your own!

Time to Seal-abrate

Imke is hosting this week's Little Red Wagon and she wants us to "Use a stencil".

I actually used two stencils to create my card. I watched a video tutorial on creating waves with a cloud stencil by using two different colours and offsetting the stencil for each "layer". I'm afraid I can't remember where I saw the video - but I do remember the technique and tried it out for this challenge! The other stencil was used for my sunbeams. I also used some stamps from Your Next Stamp to add to my watery scene.

You Make My Heart Jump for Joy

Happy Wednesday! It's my turn to host at Little Red Wagon and I've chosen the theme "Falling Leaves" and I'd like to see fall-themed projects. It's autumn here in Canada although we've still been enjoying a fair bit of summer-like weather here in Central Ontario. Most of the leaves are still green!


I used MFT's Harvest Buddies and Harvest Mouse stamp sets to create my little fall scene.

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 projects! I'll be popping by to see what you've created!

Merry Christmas Tag

Brenda is this week's hostess at Little Red Wagon and she wants us to "Tag It". Our challenge is all about tags!


I actually created my tag a bit ago while visiting my friend Mandy (a former Little Red Wagon Girlfriend). I haven't shared it yet so thought I would now for this challenge!

You're Fintastic

Bling it on! That's our challenge at Little Red Wagon this week. Jan is our hostess and she's looking for glitter, sparkles, gems and any other sort of bling.


I created a simple card with some glittery cardstock behind my fish. It was starting to get a bit dark when I took my photo so the colour isn't true-to-life which is too bad as it's a really interesting bluey-green. My little fish have some Wink of Stella added for some extra shine too.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then get out the bling for your own projects!

Ferris Wheel Thanks

School has started up again and I'm back to work following a lovely holiday. I'm blessed to have a job that I absolutely love and am so glad to be back in the office and with my incredible colleagues!

Heather is our hostess at Little Red Wagon and she wants us to go "Back to Basics" with one layer or CAS creations. I used MFT's London Mouse for my little Ferris Wheel thank you card, adding some soft clouds behind the wheel, some basic black lines and a simple sentiment. I did add a touch of Wink of Stella to the Ferris Wheel after colouring it in.

Hello Friend

Greetings from Bermuda! My daughter, youngest son and I are celebrating the last week of summer vacation with a cruise. (My middle guy opted to stay home as he had a few commitments. We miss him!)


This week's challenge at Little Red Wagon is hosted by Imke. She's looking to see us use old or new trends - from stamps to techniques to embellishments, etc. I opted to go back to my earlier crafting days when dry embossing and eyelets were all the rage!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the girlfriends have created - and then link up your own trendy project!
