It's the Moose Wonderful Time

A new challenge starts today over at Little Red Wagon. Our hostess is Sandy and she is seeing stars! At least, she wants to see stars. Please use a star on your Little Red Wagon project this week.


I have spent the past couple of weeks proctoring final exams at our university's Centre for Academic Testing. I'm exhausted!! I was fortunate enough to have a few minutes here and there to do a bit of colouring while waiting for students to finish writing and made these fun cards. On the top of each tree, I added a shiny star created with a little star die (retired from My Craft Spot) and gold foil cardstock.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created. We'd also love for you to link up your own creations with stars too!

I'll also be linking up my cards in this week's Simon Says Stamp "Make it Sparkle" challenge.

Joy to the World!

I'm delighted to be hosting this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon!

I admit to singing Christmas carols since November this year. I love the old, traditional ones that my Gran used to sing and I love the contemporary ones that I'm just learning. I thought it would be fun to incorporate Christmas carols and songs into this week's challenge and am asking that you use a line from one of your favourite Christmas carols in your sentiment (or somehow incorporate a line into your project).


For my card, I let some graphic paper do most of the work but added a little angel (although I think she might be a fairy-turned-angel with her wand!) to announce the joyful news of the first Christmas. My Christmas carol is "Joy to the World". How perfect that I had a sentiment with just those words!!

Please check out what the rest of the Little Red Wagon Girlfriends have created for this challenge and then link up your own Christmas carol/song project! We can't wait to see what you create (and know that I'll be singing your songs up here in Canada)!!

I'm also delighted that Paper Garden sent me a box full of envelopes to use for my cards! Paper Garden has an amazing variety of colours and shapes available. The envelope I used for this card is a standard A-2 Natural Kraft with a pointed flap.

The sentiment is retired from My Craft Spot.

Santa Snow Globe

Santa Claus is coming to town! That's what Brenda has us singing this week at Little Red Wagon. She's challenging us to create projects with Santa (and/or Santa's elves).


I enjoyed colouring my little Santa for this challenge. It's hard to believe that Christmas is less than three weeks away! I have a few more stocking stuffers to get and some baking to do and then we're set. It snowed on Monday so it's even beginning to look a bit more like Christmas too!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out all the Santas! While you're there, link up your own project in this week's Santa Claus is Coming to Town challenge!

The sentiment and banner are retired from My Craft Spot and the candy cane paper is from my stash. The candy striped side bar was supposed to be red and white but I smudged some ink so blended everything... I don't like it quite as much but the recipient will never know!
