Faith, Family, Friends

It's Imke's turn to host at Little Red Wagon this week and she's chosen the theme "Fall It!" This means that Imke would like to see fall-themed projects - from fall leaves to pumpkins to bushels of apples to acorns and beyond. If it's got something to do with fall, it's good to link up at LRW!


I pulled out some autumn-coloured distress inks to create a background and then layered a sentiment and leaves created with supplies from My Craft Spot. The embossed sentiment is a bit tricky to read in the photo. It says, "Faith, Family, Friends - for these we give thanks".

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own fall-themed creations!

I Pick You

I'm so happy to be hosting this week's Little Red Wagon challenge. I've chosen the theme "Apples and Bananas" which basically means that I'm looking for fruit of any kind on your projects.


I pulled out my Harvest Mouse stamp set (which is one of the first stamp sets I ever purchased) to create my little scene. The little mouse is one of my all-time favourite images. He's just so sweet! I didn't realize until I looked at my photo that I seem to have used two different shades of red for the oval frame and mat. Oh well!

Prayers and Love

Brenda is hosting this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon and she has chosen the theme "In Memorium". Brenda is looking for creations of all types that remember lost loved ones in some way - from sympathy cards to memorial journals to scrapbook memory pages.


I decided to create sympathy cards - two! Unfortunately, a friend's father is quite ill and not expected to live much longer. The family has been in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be. I created these cards for my friend and his mother using stamps from Hero Arts and from Studio Katia. The stamped flowers are all covered with Wink of Stella too - although it's difficult to see that in the photos.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the creations made by the rest of the design team. We'd love to have you link up your own "In Memorium" projects too!

Feel Better

Jan is hosting this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon and she's looking for "Nice and Clean" projects.


Jan doesn't necessarily mean that our cards/projects need to be simple, although I decided to go ultra simple on my card. In fact, I think that this is the fastest card I've ever made! This gave me more time for all the back to school prep that went on over the weekend - and that included simply having fun with my family!!

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