First Birthday Bear

Our latest Little Red Wagon challenge is hosted by Heather who has chosen the theme "Riding Along". She wants to see projects showcasing transportation. A few months ago, I purchased some cute bear stamps (Town Bear from MFT stamps) that fit this challenge perfectly!


Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then join in the "Riding Along" challenge!

This is my final week at work before holidays and then I'm off to the UK on Sunday. My middle and I are taking a trip to Scotland and England for a few weeks. Once I'm back, I'm looking forward to doing more blog visits as I'll have far more free time! It's been a blessing this year to have been busy with work but I'm ready for a bit of a break.

Happy Fishy Wishes

This week's Little Red Challenge is all about COUS - cards of unusual size. We're huge Princess Bride fans here so I especially like the name of this challenge (as Princess Bride has creatures called ROUS - rodents of unusual size). Basically, Jan, this week's hostess, is looking for any size or shape out of the ordinary.


I didn't stray too far from the norm, but I switched up my usual A2 rectangle by using chevron dies, inlaying the small one to create an acetate window. When I first started crafting, I embossed everything and it was so fun to pull out one of my original folders as I created my card! I also used the Aquarium Antics stamp and die sets from Your Next Stamp for all the little critters.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the team has created - and to link up your own COUS!

Watt's Up?

Another week has flown by! I've got two and a half weeks left at work before my holidays begin. Right now, I'm proctoring exams and, because I work in Accessibility Services, this means that there is lots to do. It's incredibly busy. However, as I watch our students with disabilities writing with accommodations, I realize what an important and necessary service we provide and am so thankful to be part of it.


Imke is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's calling out, "Shine! It's Your Day!" She wants to see lights, glitter and sparkle on our creations. I went quite literal with mine and made a light bulb the focus of my card. The light bulb and sentiment are from Your Next Stamp's Perfect Chemistry set with Wink of Stella added to the light bulb for good measure (and glitter!). It's hard to tell in the photo but the blue cardstock that I used has quite a shine to it as well.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own shiny projects!

Howdy From the Herd

I can't believe it's already April! Time has been flying. Work is especially busy these days but I love what I do so keep going back!!

I'm delighted to be the hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and I've chosen the theme "Old McDonald". For those of you who are not native speakers of English, Old McDonald is a childhood song about a farmer with all sorts of animals. The theme "Old McDonald" is my way of asking you to feature farm animals on your creations.




For my card, I used a couple of stamp sets from My Favorite Things: Farm Friends (for most images and the sentiment) and Hog Heaven (for the fence).

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own "Old McDonald" creation. I'll be popping by to visit and comment on all the projects and can't wait to see what you create!
