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!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own tag(s)!

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!

Sending You a Smile

I'm thrilled to be the hostess for this week's Little Red Wagon challenge and have chosen the theme "Hippo Birdie". I'd like to see birthday projects with an animal theme!


I created a birthday card using some stamps from My Favorite Things' Meow Mix stamp set. Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own animal-themed birthday project! We can't wait to see what you make!

Camp Cards

Lions and tigers and bears! Oh my! That's the theme that Brenda has chosen for this week's Little Red Wagon challenge. She'd like to see us use wild animals on our creations!


My little (who is almost 16, 6'3'' and still growing!) is at camp this week. Through the years, I've always made a set of cards to add to the camp mailbox so he'll have a little something to open each day during mail call. This will be his last year at camp so the last set of camp cards that I'll be making until the grands come along (which is no time soon!). It was a little bit bittersweet as I created and wrote the cards...

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the wild projects created by the design team - and then link up your own creation for this week's challenge!

Have a Jawsome Day

Jan is this week's Little Red Wagon Hostess and she wants to see extra crafting activity out there with her Get (Inter)Active theme. Jan is looking for movement on our creations - from shakers to spinners to Action Wobbles and pop-ups - or any other technique that has project recipients doing more than just ripping open the envelope!


I decided to create a shaker card using products from My Favorite Things, Studio Katia and Your Next Stamp (as well as a banner die from My Craft Spot, no longer in business).

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the Girlfriends' interactive projects - and then link up one of your own!

Yappy Birthday

Heather is our hostess at Little Red Wagon. She is a huge fan of sketches and wants to see our creations based on sketches. Don't forget to share the sketch and give credit!!


I chose the most recent My Favorite Things sketch (Sketch Challenge #396) for my card and used a variety of MFT products to create it - stamps, dies and stencil. I'll put this aside for my middle's birthday next week!

 
Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out the rest of the Girlfriends' creations. If you can't find a sketch, you're more than welcome to use one that somebody else has used.

Have an Ice Day

It's been an incredibly busy week here. I've been at work for a few days - which I absolutely love! It means that I've got very little time at home to accomplish all the things I need to do though. I was out getting groceries at 11pm last night!


Imke is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's singing, "Ice, ice, baby!" She wants to see ice on our creations! You can go with iced treats or turn your thoughts to winter, like I did with my little skating scene.

What On Earth...

It's time for a new weekly challenge at Little Red Wagon and I'm thrilled to be this week's hostess! I've chosen the theme "Off, Off and Away" and would like to see projects related to space, planets, UFOs, aliens, etc.


For my card, I focused on our home planet with a fun little sentiment to match. I created the background with a variety of distress inks. It was messy but fun!
