Wired 4 U

Happy Learn About Composting Day and Red T-Shirt Day!!

First of all, beginning in 2017, National AccessAbility Week was established to promote diversity, inclusion and accessibility in Canada. Red T-Shirt Day is part of the week. As many of you know, my youngest son has autism. His favourite colour is red and he typically wears a red t-shirt every day anyway! On the other hand, I have a limited supply of red t-shirts but am sporting one today. I also work in Student Accessibility Services at Trent University and our team is all wearing red t-shirts today as well.


As for Learn About Composting, that's the inspiration for our Little Red Wagon challenge of the week. I didn't even know that such a day existed! Brenda is our hostess, and she is challenging us to recycle or upcycle on our projects. I recently had a new ceiling fan installed in our family room and used some of the extra wire for my project.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' creations - and then recycle or upcycle something around your own house as you make something new!


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

How Kind of You

I recently purchased Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine which came with some Altenew daffodil dies. They're perfect for this week's Little Red Wagon challenge. Jan's our hostess and she's organizing a "Flower Frenzy". This means that she'd like to see flowers of any kind on our creations - from one flower to a huge bouquet!


A colleague knows how much I love daffodils and she recently picked a bunch from her garden for me to have in my office. I made this card to thank her for thinking of me and for sharing her daffs with me.

Birthday Tweetings

Doni is this week's hostess at Little Red Wagon and she's saying "Happy Bird-day". This is Doni's way of asking us to create birthday projects with birds!


I pulled out a stamp set from Reverse Confetti to create my bright card. And, after success with last week's sketch, I went online to find a sketch to use which sped things up during the creation process.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the bird-day projects - and then create and link up one of your own!

Happy Mother's Day

It's Wednesday and we're finally seeing a bit of sun here! In fact, when I got home from yesterday, I noticed that my first daffodil of the season had bloomed. As daffs are my favourite flower, I was so excited to see it!!


Imke is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's got a sketch for us! I used the sketch to make a Mother's Day card for my mum. Here in Canada, we celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May each year - which is this coming Sunday! Mum loves daffs almost as much as I do so I used a daffodil stamp as the focal point on my creation.




Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see how the rest of the Girlfriends have been inspired by Imke's sketch. And then pull out your own crafting supplies to use the sketch to inspire your creation!

What Makes You Different

Happy May! It's still be rather chilly here in Central Ontario. In fact, there were snow flurries when I went out to get some groceries on Monday evening! I'm ready for spring and hope it's just around the corner.

I'm thrilled to be hosting at Little Red Wagon this week and I've chosen the theme "Black and White Buddies". I'm looking for animals that are black and white - whether it be the traditional pandas, penguins and zebras - or any other animal that's coloured black and white, such as cats, dogs, mice, etc.


I recently took advantage of the retirement sale at My Favorite Things and purchased some old and new products. I used a few of them on my card!
