Christmas Tree Card

Wednesday, July 17, 2024
Brenda is hosting this week's Little Red Wagon challenge and she wants us to raid our scrap bins! Essentially, look through your scraps and get creative!

I used a variety of blue/green scraps to create my rustic Christmas card. With the exception of the card base itself, all papers used are from my scrap caddy - including the paper used for the frame. I inked all the cuts and then added a layered star, pearls and jute bow. I was going to add a sentiment but preferred the look of the card without. I'll add something inside when I decide where this card will go. 

I'm excited to see how the rest of the Girlfriends used their scraps this week. You can check them out too by heading over to Little Red Wagon. We'd love for you to join us as well! 

When I Kneaded You

Wednesday, July 10, 2024
Happy Wednesday! It's a very wet and rainy day here as we get the remnants of Beryl. 

This week, Janice is hosting our challenge at Little Red Wagon and she wants us to showcase things we love. You could create a project about something you love or use a technique or product that you love. There's lots of interpretation here!

I combined two things I especially love on my card - cats and puns! I used some paper from a cat pack I purchased years (decades!) ago along with stamps from My Favorite Things. The dies are generic. 

A couple of years ago during Cosette's healthier days

I actually made this card for our vet clinic. Last week, we had to say goodbye to our sweet little Cosette. She turned 20 in May so lived an especially long life for a cat. She came to us as a stray when we was about five months old or so, having shown up at a student's country home. My daughter and I had seen Les Miserables the week before we got Cosette so named her after the heroine of the story. Cosette's health wasn't the greatest for the past few years but something must have happened through the night on Wednesday as I woke Thursday to her not being able to stand, let alone walk. I'm so thankful for the gift that she was to her family. She's missed.

I'm sure you all have something in your lives that you love so I do hope you'll join this week's Little Red Wagon challenge! 

Be Still

Wednesday, July 3, 2024

It's July! Chrissy is starting off the month at Little Red Wagon with a "Light Up the Sky" (make a night sky) challenge. 

I tore and inked up a page from an old dictionary and then created a blue and black mat for my card, spritzing some water droplets. I also used a My Favorite Things stencil to add stars. The stamps are from Flora and Fauna and I used my NBUS Dymo to create the sentiment strips. 

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

Happy Birthday Snow Card

Wednesday, June 19, 2024
Welcome or welcome back! I'm excited to be hosting this week's Little Red Wagon challenge. This time, my Def Leppard-inspired theme is "Women". I'm looking for any sort of feminine creation. How you interpret that is up to you. 

One of my best girlfriends shares my birthday and we are alike in many ways. However, I'm all about sun and sand while she absolutely loves snow. As her favourite colour is yellow, I created this yellow snowflake card for her. The colours are a bit softer in real life. I also added some little diamond gems on the die cut snowflakes for an added touch of femininity. 

I'd love for you to join our challenge too! You can head over to Little Red Wagon  to view the rest of the Girlfriends' projects and then link up a creation of your own! 

You are Just "Plane" Amazing

Wednesday, June 12, 2024
It's Imke's turn to host this week's Little Red Wagon challenge and she's got a fun one for us - Planes, Trains and Automobiles. She's actually looking for a creation with any sort of vehicle so you're not actually limited to one of the three. I think I find the challenge especially fun as the name of it reminds me of a movie by the same title. John Candy, one of the stars of the film, was a wonderfully talented Canadian comedic actor. 

I pulled out a stamp set from Your Next Stamp for the image and sentiment. I then combined some patterned papers and die cut a coiled border strip. I don't use patterned paper as much as I should. I like the look and I have far too much of it!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Planes, Trains and Automobiles challenge creations made by the talented Girlfriends. We'd love for you to join the fun too!
