We're a Perfect Pair

Happy Wednesday! The days are starting to get a bit cooler here. It's been quite nice for being outside and getting things done without working up a total sweat!

Wednesday means a new challenge at Little Red Wagon. Before her injury, Doni chose the challenge "Foodie!" She'd like to see creations with food highlighted in some way, shape or form. I used an image that I've had for quite some time as the focal point of my card.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the team has make - and then create your own food-themed project!

Cat Tags

Imke is our hostess at Little Red Wagon and she's saying "Tag it!" - which is her way of asking us to create tags.

My baby is turning 17 on Friday - and is 6'6" so not really a baby anymore! He loves his cat, Skimble, and I created a few tags to attach to some of his gifts. The cats are coloured to look like Skimble.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out the Girlfriends' incredible tags - and then create and link up your own. We can't wait to see what you make!

The Time You Enjoy Wasting

I'm so excited to be this week's hostess at Little Red Wagon. I've chosen the theme "I'd like to teach the world to sing" - which basically means I'd like you to be inspired by music/songs as you create. 

I almost always have music playing, and especially love 80s music. I used Whitesnake's Here I Go Again as inspiration for my card. The first verse sings:

I don't know where I'm going
But I sure know where I've been
Hanging on the promises in songs of yesterday
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

This song was a favourite that my husband and I always cranked up and sang to when it came on the radio (or when we just played it ourselves). My former vehicle had a decal with the song's first two lines that I designed and cut with my Silhouette.

It's difficult to read the gold-embossed sentiment. It says, "The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time."

Here's the song for you! Gotta love that hair!!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created. And then turn on the radio or YouTube or get out your old vinyls and let a song inspire you to create!

Look Who's Having a Birthday

We're having a new challenge at Little Red Wagon and Brenda is leading the way this week. Apparently, it's National Book Lovers' Day (who knew?!) so Brenda is looking for a focus on words.

I just purchased a Kobo in order to purchase and read the story of E.B. White and how he was inspired to write Charlotte's Web, which was one of (and still is one of) my favourite childhood stories. I read the book so many times when I was young - and then read it to my own children! I thought the take on the book would be a fitting take on words, given that Charlotte was able to spin words into her webs. For my card though, Wilbur and Charlotte are focusing on the newspaper - a source of a great many words!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends' have created - and then link up your own project focusing on words!
