Congratulations Card - Inspired by Aerosmith's "Pink"

Wednesday, May 15, 2024
I'm hosting again at Little Red Wagon and I'm confusing everybody this week as I'm continuing with my Def Leppard-inspired songs while having been inspired by Aerosmith for today's creation. Let me explain... 

The challenge is Let's Get Rocked which is the name of a 1992 Def Leppard hit. However, I'm challenging crafters to be inspired by the rock song of their choice. As my niece recently gave birth to a precious little girl, I cranked up Aerosmith's Pink and got to work on this card. 

I used products from Your Next Stamp (background die, sentiment and elephant), My Favorite Things (banner die and photo frame die), Cuttlebug (embossing folder) and My Craft Spot (twine) to create my PINK card.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what songs have inspired the rest of the Girlfriends' Let's Get Rocked creations. I'm exited to visit your blogs to see what you create too!  

Thoughts and Prayers - Sympathy Card

Wednesday, May 8, 2024
It's Brenda's turn to host our Little Red Wagon weekly challenge and she's looking for us to create our own backgrounds.

Mine is a fairly (very!) simple card. I used a stencil to blend some Speckled Egg distress ink in an oval shape. I purchased this ink when it first came out and it's been sitting, still wrapped, on my ink shelf since its arrival! I then stamped a MFT flower trio - which seems to be my go-to sympathy stamp. I really like the simple elegance of the stamp. I finished things off with a sentiment from My Craft Spot, some black paint splatter and three little pearls. I decided I liked things better without the pearls but they were not having anything to do with me removing them without a trace so I decided they could stay.  

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have done for backgrounds - and then join in the fun too! 

Pyramid Card

Wednesday, May 1, 2024
It's been a few weeks! My craft room needed some minor repair so has been in a slight state of disrepair. I was able to see through the drywall dust and find my way to papercrafting goodies in order to join this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon. Janice is hosting and she wants to see our "Shapely" creations. Basically, anything other than a square or a rectangle. 

I decided to go with a pyramid card - taking three 4x4 bits of cardstock and arranging them together. I was going to have my little doily off to the side to have the side tuck in but didn't really like that so put the doily in the middle and used a little velcro dot to hold things together. And I realize it opens backwards but I liked the look better with the paper I used. The card lies flat - including the little accordion heart I made for the doily. No sentiment as I don't really have a purpose for this card. I figure I'll just write inside when the time comes - Happy Birthday! Sorry you've been ill... Thanks so much! Lots of options. 

I can't wait to see the Girlfriends' "Shapely" projects - and you're welcome to head to Little Red Wagon to check them out too! We'd love for you to join the challenge as well! 

Hello - Daffodils

Wednesday, April 10, 2024
It's my turn to host at Little Red Wagon and this week, I've chosen "Photograph", inspired once again by a Def Leppard tune. Pretty much anything goes, I just ask that you include the inspirational photograph in your post.

My daffs are blooming. This time of year, I take a lot of photos of daffodils. I'm including the first one of the year as it inspired this week's card creation.

Please look through your own photos - or photos online - and create with that as your inspiration. Then link up at Little Red Wagon. I'm sure the Girlfriends would be delighted to have you check out their creations too! 

Thank you

It's Brenda's turn to host this week's Little Red Wagon challenge and she's looking for fun folds. As long as your creation does not have a standard top or side fold, you're good!

I just realized as I wrote the above that my card does indeed have a standard side fold. However, it takes a turn from the typical with the front being cut to half its usual side and an extra panel used. I'm hoping that's fun enough for Brenda! The "Thank You" was cut from dies from My Craft Spot. How I miss My Craft Spot! 

I hope you'll join me over at Little Red Wagon to see the fun folds used by the rest of the Girlfriends. Once you've been inspired, please link up your own project!
