Birthday Tweetings

Doni is this week's hostess at Little Red Wagon and she's saying "Happy Bird-day". This is Doni's way of asking us to create birthday projects with birds!


I pulled out a stamp set from Reverse Confetti to create my bright card. And, after success with last week's sketch, I went online to find a sketch to use which sped things up during the creation process.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the bird-day projects - and then create and link up one of your own!

Happy Mother's Day

It's Wednesday and we're finally seeing a bit of sun here! In fact, when I got home from yesterday, I noticed that my first daffodil of the season had bloomed. As daffs are my favourite flower, I was so excited to see it!!


Imke is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's got a sketch for us! I used the sketch to make a Mother's Day card for my mum. Here in Canada, we celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May each year - which is this coming Sunday! Mum loves daffs almost as much as I do so I used a daffodil stamp as the focal point on my creation.




Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see how the rest of the Girlfriends have been inspired by Imke's sketch. And then pull out your own crafting supplies to use the sketch to inspire your creation!


I'm also entering my card in Simon Says Stamp's For a Special Lady challenge.

What Makes You Different

Happy May! It's still be rather chilly here in Central Ontario. In fact, there were snow flurries when I went out to get some groceries on Monday evening! I'm ready for spring and hope it's just around the corner.

I'm thrilled to be hosting at Little Red Wagon this week and I've chosen the theme "Black and White Buddies". I'm looking for animals that are black and white - whether it be the traditional pandas, penguins and zebras - or any other animal that's coloured black and white, such as cats, dogs, mice, etc.


I recently took advantage of the retirement sale at My Favorite Things and purchased some old and new products. I used a few of them on my card!

Hello Gorgeous

It's Brenda's turn to host at Little Red Wagon and she's saying "Everything Coming Up..." (use use some kind of flora: cacti, plants, flowers, trees, fruit, etc.).


I used Simon Says Stamp's Wild Beauty stamp set to create my card. I got the idea of using sequins to ground my flowers from Pinterest. I actually made this card twice as the first time, there was a little smudge that I tried to hide and ended up making a huge mess! Anyway, I switched up the position of the little sentiment and like the updated version much better - so it all worked out in the end.

Airplane Thanks

It's already Wednesday AND it's a short week! I'm away at a training in Toronto this week so time is flying by.

Jan is our Little Red Hostess and she wants us to "Look Up, Way Up". Jan is looking for projects featuring things in the air - from birds and butterflies to balloons and planes. If you look up and see it, you can use it on your project for this week's challenge!


I'm taking the children on a Baltic Sea cruise in June and we'll be flying KLM to get to Amsterdam. I made these cards to give the flight crew to thank them for getting us to and from The Netherlands safely! I chose the colours based on KLM's colours.

Make Mudpies

It's time for the latest Little Red Wagon challenge and I'm delighted to let you all know that our new Girlfriend, Doni, is hosting this week! She's chosen the theme April Showers and would like to see anything to do with water or rain. This could be the theme of your creation or it could involve water as part of the technique you've used.


I chose to use a Hero Arts rain/spring stamp that I won in a Simon Says Stamp grab bag ages ago and never used. The rain cloud paper was from my stash from years ago and I also added some raindrop gems that I've never used before! The stamps are from a Reverse Confetti set. I'd actually ordered some little duckling stamps for the challenge but they seem to be having fun with border customs so I don't yet have them!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to "meet" Doni - and then link up your own April Showers creation!

Our Friendship is Magical

Imke is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she is challenging us to "Shake It!". Imke would like to see us create shaker cards (or another project with shakers).


I used some magical stamps from My Favorite Things to create a card for a dear friend of mine who celebrates a birthday later this month.

Please create your own shaker and join the fun at Little Red Wagon!

Happy Easter Treat Bags

I'm thrilled to be hosting at Little Red Wagon this week. I've chosen the theme "Hop to it!" and am looking for anything that hops.


For my project, I created a couple of Easter treat bags with bunny toppers. I'll have to make another though as I have three kids.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out what the rest of the Girlfriends have created and then link up your own "Hop to it!" project.

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!
