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!

Sending You a Smile

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!
