Just Because

Wednesday, March 25, 2020
Happy Wednesday! It's time for our new challenge at Little Red Wagon where the wonderful Imke is hosting this week. Imke has called this challenge "Leftovers" and she wants us to use up paper (or supplies) that we have leftover from something else.

I used some tissue paper that came with my latest Causebox shipment to make my die cut flowers. The dies are a new set from Flora & Fauna. I also used some leftover white cardstock for my frames which just arrived with my latest Your Next Stamp order.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then use your leftovers to make a project for our challenge!

I do hope that all of you are well. We're staying home and making the best of things. It's actually been a wonderful time of reconnection with family meals together each night and games in the evening. I'm still working each day - but from home. It's busy as we work to support our students at the uni with their transition to online learning. I'm so impressed with my team and my incredible students!

Thanks a Latte

I'm excited to be this week's hostess at Little Red Wagon this week. I have to admit that I procrastinated a bit and only created my card last night. As I'm sure many of us are, I've been glued to the news. It was good to have some time tucked away in my craft room while being oblivious to the outside world for a bit.

I'm fortunate to be able to work from home for the next little bit. I typically go into the office each day so it's quite a switch. I've got regular Zoom video conference meetings with my students and lots of emails so I'm keeping busy! Still, it means that work is home and home is work right now. Taking the time to craft this evening reminded me just how important it is to take breaks and to take time for ourselves.

I used a sweet little image from Your Next Stamp's Ellie Loves Lattes to create my card. The Stripe-Tastic Rectangle die used behind the image is also from Your Next Stamp. I love the look!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then create and link your own project. I can't wait to see what you create!!

I wish you all health and safety at this time. Please, stay inside whenever possible.

Amazing, Marvelous You

Brenda is this week's hostess at Little Red Wagon and she's calling out, "Etc., etc., etc."! Basically, she's looking for three of anything on our projects - from three sentiments to three images to three embellishments to three patterned papers. If it's a triplet of some sort, we want to see it!

I was especially excited about this challenge as three is my favourite number. I used my never-before used love script die and cut it three times for my card. (The cuts stand out a bit better in real life.) I have three words in my sentiment and finished things off with three droplet gems. Three sets of three!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' projects and then join this week's fun by creating something with a "three" theme!

If You Were a Cactus

Tuesday, March 10, 2020
I ordered some new release MFT stamps today and decided that I should use some of the products I bought last month! The cactus set caught my eye as soon as I saw it and I got the brick wall stencil on sale. As I hadn't used either, I decided to use both on my card!

I've been trying to do a bit more crafting and blogging. Life is so busy that it's hard to find time - although it's good to take time to do the things we love!

All About You Card Set

Jan is this week's hostess at Little Red Wagon and she's encouraging us to "Tie One On!" This means it's the perfect time to pull out your balls of yarn, twine, jute, string, etc. and add them to your creations!

I made a set of simple little cards. I used twine on two and jute string on the other.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the other Girlfriends have created and then Tie One On to join in the fun!

Go Flourish

There's currently a 30-Day colouring challenge going on for crafters (or anybody!). I'm not sure that I'll be able to colour every day but thought I'd try to make use of some of the time that I've got. Plus, I'm still having a very difficult time with sleep and colouring is so relaxing!

I used stamps from Flora and Fauna's Butterfly Jar Set (which might actually be retired as I don't see it in the shop). I added some Wink of Stella to the butterfly for some added sparkle.

It's a simple card - but I like it and it was a great way to spend time while waiting for the sheets to dry!
