You Make Me Happy

Wednesday, August 10, 2022
I'm hosting this week's challenge over at Little Red Wagon and continue to use Beatles' hits as my inspiration this year. This week, the theme is "Here Comes the Sun" which seems quite fitting given all the sun and HEAT we've been having. I think that last week's camping trip was the hottest time I've ever had camping. Even just sitting in the shade worked up a sweat!

I used a variety of projects from different companies to put my card together. I think I went through about four different background ideas before I finally decided this one was somewhat blog worthy. 

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

Hippo Birdie to You

Wednesday, August 3, 2022
Happy Wednesday!! I'm actually on holiday this week, camping in Eastern Ontario. This is a wonderful time of year to go camping in my part of the world as most of the biting insects are gone for the season. My youngest guy and I were originally booked to go up on the weekend (a long weekend here in Ontario) and stay the entire week but he ended up having two final exams scheduled. We now have far too much food but that's a pretty good problem to have, especially when some of that food includes ingredients for S'mores!

Brenda is our wonderful hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's looking for us to use circles on our creations. As soon as I read the inspiration, I knew I wanted to use a layered circle stencil set that I purchased from MFT a year or so ago and had used only once (now twice!).  After inking up my two-toned circles, I splattered some yellow paint for more tiny little circles. I then used an oldie but a goodie set from Lawn Fawn for my sentiment and images. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then use circles for your project to join our challenge this week!

Hanging By a Thread?

Jan is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's chosen the theme "Stitching Sensations". In some way, use stitching on your papercrafting project. 

I created a Memorydex card. I keep my Memorydex on my home office desk. I've made a number of cards with words of inspiration - whether those are words of encouragement for rough days or simply happy thoughts and ideas to keep up office morale (just me so a pretty easy task!) when things are good! I typically just use scraps and leftovers from other projects when making my Memorydex cards and that's just what I did here too. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to how the Girlfriends have added stitches to their projects. We'd love to have you join us too!

Just a Meeting

Happy Wednesday! It's Doni's turn to host our challenge at Little Red Wagon this week and she's letting us know that it's "Time for Ice Cream".  Given that any time can be time for ice cream, feel free to join us all week long, regardless of the time!

I used some stamps from Mint Owl Studio (which is no longer in business), a frame from Your Next Stamp and stencils from Simon Says Stamp to create my card. The ice cream tops are covered with some Wink of Stella for some sparkly fun.

When my daughter was a toddler, she thoroughly enjoyed peeling wallpaper off our walls. If we were redecorating, this would have been a wonderful help. But that was not the case. Erin also thoroughly enjoyed ice cream. In fact, it was a favourite. At our wits end with what to do about Erin peeling the wallpaper, a friend suggested that Erin be denied ice cream the next time she was caught. And so, when the inevitable occurred, my husband and I had ice cream for dessert and Erin was not permitted to have any. Oh! The tears! And the ice cream tasted like sawdust to Ralph and me given Erin's devastation. We felt cruel... However, Erin never peeled wallpaper again. Drawing on walls was another story though!!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to join our ice cream fun. We can't wait to see what you create!

The fun and talented Chrissy is hosting at Little Red Wagon and she's looking for some laughs. Create something - anything - to make us laugh!

I put some "Shoeper" Your Next Stamp products to work and created this punny card. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created (and have a laugh while you're there)! Then, create your own fun project to join this week's challenge!
