Merry Christmas Wreath

Merry Christmas from everybody at Little Red Wagon! It's our final challenge of 2018 and we're going out with a bang! Heather is our hostess and she's chosen the theme "All Things Christmas". And our extra special news is that we have a prize up for grabs!! Head over to Little Red Wagon for all the details!


I made a card for this week's challenge. I used the new Holiday Wreaths stamp and dies set from Your Next Stamp. I've fallen in love with the tiny birds in this set!! It was fun to colour things up and, although you can't tell from the photo, I went a bit Wink of Stella mad so all the wreath's embellishments have a glittery sparkle to them.


Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, may your holidays be full of peace and joy.

Me and You

This week's Little Red Wagon challenge is hosted by the wonderful Imke! She wants to see black and white with one other colour. My card is nothing at all like my original plan which included a black and white town with a yellow car - but sometimes, that's just how crafting goes!!


Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the projects created by the rest of the design team - and then pull out your own black and white supplies (with another colour of your choice) to join the fun!

YNS - 12 Days of Christmas

I am so incredibly excited to be joining the Your Next Stamp team this month for their special "12 Days of Christmas" feature! If you haven't been following, be sure to head over to Your Next Stamp as they are giving away a $25.00 YNS gift certificate! To win, all you need to do is leave a comment on each of the 12 Days of Christmas posts on the YNS blog. The more posts you comment on, the greater your odds of winning. One random comment, among all the comments left on the posts, will be selected to win the gift certificate.


Each year, I do rather a lot of baking (and sampling!). I find that fresh, baked goods make a great gift - whether it be tins full of sugary sweetness or little samples added to decorate my packages. 



For my project, I added some fancy shortbread to little baggies and decorated them with some tags using some of my favourite YNS stamps: Holiday Snow Globe. There's such a fun assortment of characters, shapes and little sentiments. To create the actual tags, I used the Cool Tag 4 die set, layering two of the tags before adding some ribbon and little bells to finish things off. 


Please be sure to check out the YNS blog to see my project - and don't forget to leave a comment there for your chance to win a gift certificate!

Happy Pawlidays

I can't believe it's December already! This year has been flying by. I've been so incredibly busy and am looking forward to a break after Christmas. It will be nice to have a week to take things easy for a bit!


I'm thrilled to be hosting at Little Red Wagon this week. I've chosen the theme "Purrs and Wags" which means I'd like to see projects with or for house pets. No matter what your house pet is (or what sort of pet you'd like to have), you're welcome to join the fun! I used a little pup from MFT's Happy Pawlidays stamp set to create my card.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created and then link up your own project. I look forward to seeing your creations!
