Hello Friend

Greetings from Bermuda! My daughter, youngest son and I are celebrating the last week of summer vacation with a cruise. (My middle guy opted to stay home as he had a few commitments. We miss him!)


This week's challenge at Little Red Wagon is hosted by Imke. She's looking to see us use old or new trends - from stamps to techniques to embellishments, etc. I opted to go back to my earlier crafting days when dry embossing and eyelets were all the rage!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the girlfriends have created - and then link up your own trendy project!

Sending You a Smile

I'm thrilled to be the hostess for this week's Little Red Wagon challenge and have chosen the theme "Hippo Birdie". I'd like to see birthday projects with an animal theme!


I created a birthday card using some stamps from My Favorite Things' Meow Mix stamp set. Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own animal-themed birthday project! We can't wait to see what you make!

Camp Cards

Lions and tigers and bears! Oh my! That's the theme that Brenda has chosen for this week's Little Red Wagon challenge. She'd like to see us use wild animals on our creations!


My little (who is almost 16, 6'3'' and still growing!) is at camp this week. Through the years, I've always made a set of cards to add to the camp mailbox so he'll have a little something to open each day during mail call. This will be his last year at camp so the last set of camp cards that I'll be making until the grands come along (which is no time soon!). It was a little bit bittersweet as I created and wrote the cards...

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the wild projects created by the design team - and then link up your own creation for this week's challenge!

Have a Jawsome Day

Jan is this week's Little Red Wagon Hostess and she wants to see extra crafting activity out there with her Get (Inter)Active theme. Jan is looking for movement on our creations - from shakers to spinners to Action Wobbles and pop-ups - or any other technique that has project recipients doing more than just ripping open the envelope!


I decided to create a shaker card using products from My Favorite Things, Studio Katia and Your Next Stamp (as well as a banner die from My Craft Spot, no longer in business).

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the Girlfriends' interactive projects - and then link up one of your own!

Yappy Birthday

Heather is our hostess at Little Red Wagon. She is a huge fan of sketches and wants to see our creations based on sketches. Don't forget to share the sketch and give credit!!


I chose the most recent My Favorite Things sketch (Sketch Challenge #396) for my card and used a variety of MFT products to create it - stamps, dies and stencil. I'll put this aside for my middle's birthday next week!

 
Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out the rest of the Girlfriends' creations. If you can't find a sketch, you're more than welcome to use one that somebody else has used.
