Feel Better

Happy Wednesday - and Happy Halloween! I'm hosting at Little Red Wagon this week and have chosen the challenge "Regal and Royal" - anything to do with kings and queens, princes and princesses, castles and the like.


Quite often when I pick a challenge, I have something specific in mind, and often it's based on a newish product that I'm encouraging myself to use. I must have spotted some sort of prince/princess set and not actually purchased it for when it came time to make my project, I realized that I had nothing that fit the theme!! Fortunately, I found a fun digi stamp of the Princess and the Pea (found HERE on the Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamp blog) and went with that. I had lots of fun colouring in the image!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created. And then get out your own Regal and Royal products (or find something online like I did!) to create and link a project for this week's challenge. I can't wait to see your take!

Happy Birthday

It's Brenda's turn to host at Little Red Wagon and she's chosen the theme "Damsel in Distress". Pull out your distressed inks and put them to work on your creations this week! You're also welcome to distress your project in other ways too (e.g., inked edges, torn papers, etc.).


For my card, I heat embossed some flower stamped images (from a freebie set that came with a magazine) and then used some Shaded Lilac distress ink to blend from bottom to top of my panel. I then spritzed a bit of water before adding my sentiment, created with a word die and some more heat embossing.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created. We'd love for you to "Distress It" too!

Thank You Dairy Much

It's Heather's turn to host at Little Red Wagon this week and her theme is "Thankful For You". Heather would like to see thank you projects.


I decided to create a fun little thank you card using products from My Favorite Things. I kept things monotone with the exception of the red sentiment strip.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out the other Girlfriends' projects - and then make and link a thank you creation of your own!

Time to Seal-abrate

Imke is hosting this week's Little Red Wagon and she wants us to "Use a stencil".

I actually used two stencils to create my card. I watched a video tutorial on creating waves with a cloud stencil by using two different colours and offsetting the stencil for each "layer". I'm afraid I can't remember where I saw the video - but I do remember the technique and tried it out for this challenge! The other stencil was used for my sunbeams. I also used some stamps from Your Next Stamp to add to my watery scene.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then pull out your stencils to create your own projects!
