You Brrring Me Joy

Wednesday, November 27, 2019
The weather has been quite pleasant here - although we did have a nasty taste of winter a couple of weeks ago. The temperatures were low and we had a couple of dumpings of snow. My littlest (who's actually the youngest but biggest, standing 6'6"!) insists on wearing shorts and a t-shirt each day - and did so through the snow and cold. Meanwhile, I was wearing a down coat with boots, a hat, mitts and scarf when it was really cold. Anyway, all this is to introduce you to our latest challenge at Little Red Wagon - Snow Much Fun! All we ask this week is that there is something to do with snow somewhere on your project.

I used my Festive Friends stamp set from MFT to create my little snowy scene. A couple of years ago, I invested in the Brother Scan 'N Cut which has more than paid for itself and is so quick and easy to use. I rarely buy dies for my images anymore. Usually, there are no issues. However, I would have liked the space cut out between the antlers/lights and the reindeer's head and just couldn't get it to happen. It could be a big wad of snow though - so all's good!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out the rest of the snowy creations - and then link up your own project! We can't wait to see what you create!

Happy Birthday to Roo

Wednesday, November 20, 2019
Brenda is hosting our newest Little Red Wagon and she's singing, "You say it's your birthday". As you have likely guessed, birthday projects are the theme of the week! Given that everybody has a birthday at least once a year (I say that as we celebrate half birthdays at our house - any excuse for another ice cream cake!), we hope to see lots of you joining in the fun!

My sister celebrates her special day next month. We have a private joke between us that we always end our correspondence with words beginning with the letter "R". For example, instead of "See you soon!", we would write, "Ree rou roon!". "Love you" becomes "Rove rou!". Anyway, when I saw the MFT Aussie Animals sentiment "Happy birthday to roo", it was too good to pass up!

Please visit Little Red Wagon to check out the birthday projects created by the Girlfriends - and then make and link up your own birthday creation!

I Come Bearing Gifts

Jan is hosting our newest challenge at Little Red Wagon and she's saying, "Don't be shy!" In other words, speak out with more than two words on your creation.

My new Ho Ho Ho background stamp from MFT came in very handy for this challenge. I didn't count the number of times "HO" is repeated, but I'm sure it's more than two! I also made sure that there were more than two words in my sentiment, just to be on the safe side!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see all the wordy sentiments used by the Girlfriends for this week's challenge - and then don't be shy! Join us by linking up your own project using more than two words on your creation.

G'Day Mate

It's Doni's turn to host at Little Red Wagon and she's chosen the theme "Let's Talk Turkey" for this week's challenge. Doni would like to see speech bubbles on our creations!

I used a stamps from My Favorite Things' Aussie Animals set. I realized after looking at my photo that the tree seems to be dangling in space so I'm pretending that the koala is actually on a pogo stick with leaves. The speech bubble frame is a die from My Craft Spot.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out all the speech bubbles and what the Girlfriends have to say! And then link up your own speech bubble project!
