The Best is Yeti to Come

Another week has flown by and it's time for another Little Red Wagon challenge. This week, I'm the hostess and I'm challenging you to "Stencil It!" - use a stencil to create your project.


I recently received an order from My Favorite Things and had fun putting them to work over the weekend to create my card for this challenge. I thought that the Snowfall stencil would look great if used with texture paste, so that's what I did. I first inked my background paper and then laid the stencil on top, covering it with texture paste. The last time I used texture paste, I left it overnight to dry. This time, I only waited about half an hour and it was fine.



Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and to link up your own "Stencil It!" project. I can't wait to see what you make!


I'm also linking my card up in Simon Says Stamp's Work It Wednesday challenge and this week's Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes as well as My Favorite Things' Sketch Challenge #304.

Go Nuts!

It's Wednesday! Wednesday means a new challenge at Little Red Wagon. Jan is our hostess this week and she's ready to party! She'd like to see all of your birthday/celebration creations.


For my project, I created a birthday card. I recently learned that a group of squirrels is a scurry (or a dray). Perhaps I should have added another squirrel to my card to make a scurry. Regardless, the two I've got seem to be scurrying to collect their acorns!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' creations - and then link up your own project. We've all got something to celebrate!

Open if You Dare!

It's time for another challenge at Little Red Wagon. This week, our Hostess is Donna and she's sending out "Best Witches" to everybody. In other words, create a project with a witch on it.


I decided to create a gift bag for my project. The fun little die cuts on the bag itself are from Your Next Stamp. The tag is cut from a Mama Elephant set and the sentiment stamps and bats are retired products from My Craft Spot. I added some gems to the witch's and cat's eyes for a few pops of sparkling green.

Please had over to Little Red Wagon to join the rest of the Girlfriends in this week's "Best Witches" challenge! We'd love to see what you create!

Happy Haunting

I can't believe it's October - let alone a few weeks in to the month already! It's looking more and more like fall each day with the beautiful rainbows of colours on our trees. This week at Little Red Wagon, Brenda is our hostess and she's chosen a colour combo theme for us - purple, orange and green.


My zombie looks more green in real life but seems quite pale in the photo. Perhaps he ate something he shouldn't have... In addition to the products listed below, I also used some retired stamps from My Craft Spot (spider's web and "Happy Haunting!" sentiment.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out the rest of the Girlfriends' purple, orange and green projects. We'd love for you to link up your own project too!
