Hello Gorgeous

It's Brenda's turn to host at Little Red Wagon and she's saying "Everything Coming Up..." (use use some kind of flora: cacti, plants, flowers, trees, fruit, etc.).


I used Simon Says Stamp's Wild Beauty stamp set to create my card. I got the idea of using sequins to ground my flowers from Pinterest. I actually made this card twice as the first time, there was a little smudge that I tried to hide and ended up making a huge mess! Anyway, I switched up the position of the little sentiment and like the updated version much better - so it all worked out in the end.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then make and link your own "Everything Coming Up" project.


I'm also linking up my card in this week's Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.

Airplane Thanks

It's already Wednesday AND it's a short week! I'm away at a training in Toronto this week so time is flying by.

Jan is our Little Red Hostess and she wants us to "Look Up, Way Up". Jan is looking for projects featuring things in the air - from birds and butterflies to balloons and planes. If you look up and see it, you can use it on your project for this week's challenge!


I'm taking the children on a Baltic Sea cruise in June and we'll be flying KLM to get to Amsterdam. I made these cards to give the flight crew to thank them for getting us to and from The Netherlands safely! I chose the colours based on KLM's colours.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own "Look up, Way up" project!

Make Mudpies

It's time for the latest Little Red Wagon challenge and I'm delighted to let you all know that our new Girlfriend, Doni, is hosting this week! She's chosen the theme April Showers and would like to see anything to do with water or rain. This could be the theme of your creation or it could involve water as part of the technique you've used.


I chose to use a Hero Arts rain/spring stamp that I won in a Simon Says Stamp grab bag ages ago and never used. The rain cloud paper was from my stash from years ago and I also added some raindrop gems that I've never used before! The stamps are from a Reverse Confetti set. I'd actually ordered some little duckling stamps for the challenge but they seem to be having fun with border customs so I don't yet have them!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to "meet" Doni - and then link up your own April Showers creation!

Our Friendship is Magical

Imke is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she is challenging us to "Shake It!". Imke would like to see us create shaker cards (or another project with shakers).


I used some magical stamps from My Favorite Things to create a card for a dear friend of mine who celebrates a birthday later this month.

Please create your own shaker and join the fun at Little Red Wagon!
