You're Fantastic!

Jan is hosting this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon and she's looking for us to use digital stamps. While I have used digital stamps in the past, they've been few and far between so I was initially at a bit of a loss as to where to begin my search. My dear friend, Google, helped me out immensely and I ended up at Bugaboo stamps purchasing Doodle Dogs Collage.


Our student staff member will be leaving us at the end of the summer so I made this card for her. I coloured each of the six dogs in the collage to correspond with the hair and eye colours of the rest of the team. Our student staff member loves pink, so she's the super dog dressed in a sparkly pink cape! The super dog is from a MFT's stamp set, appropriately named Super Dog. (I used another one of the Super Dog stamps for last week's project.) The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps Amazing stamp set.

Please hunt the internet for your own digistamps to create a project for this week's Little Red Wagon challenge. Although I ended up purchasing mine (for a great price!), I noticed lots of freebies out there too! 


PS In case any of you are wondering, I'm the dog in the top middle frame, hanging upside down with a green collar!

Super Dog

It's Doni's turn to host our latest Little Red Wagon challenge and she's all about these "Dog Days of Summer". Doni is looking for dogs of any kind on our projects. This was a great opportunity for me to use my Super Dog stamp set. I have to admit that I totally and completely stole the design idea for my card from the MFT store website. I loved the look of the card inspiration when I purchased the Super Dog stamp set and City Block die so decided to mimic things for myself!!


Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out the rest of the Girlfriends' dog projects - and then create one of your own to link up!

Life is Better in Flip Flops

Imke is hosting our newest challenge at Little Red Wagon and she's asking us to "Stitch it"! This means that she'd like to see any sort of stitching on your projects - from needle and thread to stitched dies to faux stitching with pens.


I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use a cross-stitch die that I purchased two Christmases ago and never quite got around to using. It's an MFT die and the site has a number of patterns available for download. I mixed the stitched palm tree with some die cuts and a sentiment from Your Next Stamp.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then join in the "Stitch it!" fun!

Merry Christmas!

We arrived home safely from our Baltic Sea cruise and I am so, so tired!! We had an absolutely amazing time. I was able to purchase a few new nativity sets - which seems strange in July, but I collect nativity sets and am thrilled that I was able to get some unique ones from different countries, including a Russian nesting doll nativity which I love!


I'm the hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and have chosen the theme "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas". I made my card using a never-before-used-but-purchased-a-few-years-ago stamp set. I heat embossed the tree and added some red gemstones to it as well.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to like up your own Christmas creation. I can't wait to see what you create!

Graduation Card

Greetings from the Baltic Sea! We’re cruising today as we journey from Stockholm to Copenhagen. This is another pre-scheduled post.


It’s time for another Little Red Wagon challenge! This time, Brenda is our hostess and she’s wishing us all a Happy Repeat Day. Brenda would like us to use repeated elements on our creations. I repeated the circle elements - adding round sequins to complement the circles on my paper.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own projects with repeated elements.
