Hippo 100th Birdie

Wednesday, January 1, 2020
Happy New Year and greetings from the Grand Cayman Islands! My daughter and I are taking a New Year's cruise to Grand Cayman and Jamaica. Although the temperatures were mild for Christmas, it's still a treat to get away to sun and sand!

Brenda is hosting our first Little Red Wagon challenge of 2020 and she's saying "In with the old" - which seems opposite to what we usually say as we welcome in a new year. However, what Brenda is actually saying is that she'd like us to create a project using something that we've never used before. Perhaps it's something you've had for ages or perhaps it's something that you've recently acquired. Whatever it is, this challenge is the perfect time to put it to use.

I used a My Favorite Things stripes die that I've had for a couple of months but haven't yet put to work. I used it to create a background on some "smooshed" inked watercolour paper. I did the smooshing ages ago and kept the paper although never used it. I then used s stamp set from Lawn Fawn (which I have used in the past) and added the age.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created with their Never Before Used Stuff (NBUS) and then take advantage of the challenge to work with your NBUS!
