Thumbs Up!

Wednesday, April 29, 2020
Imke is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's chosen the theme White (or any other colour) Space. Imke is looking for creations with minimal detail and lots of blank space.

I used some fun products from Your Next Stamp to create my fun card. As soon as I saw this set, I had to get it. I love giving the thumbs up sign as a form of encouragement and motivation for others. I remember when my daughter was young, she responded to friends with a double thumbs up and they all laughed, telling her that she was just like her mum!

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

Rain or Shine

Wednesday, April 22, 2020
It's Wednesday again already! Despite not having gone anywhere for over a month now (with the exception of dog walks around the neighbourhood), I'm still working full-time from home and staying so busy that the days fly by!

I'm thrilled to be this week's hostess at Little Red Wagon and have chosen the theme "April showers" for our theme. I'm looking for anything to do with April or spring. I used some stamps from My Favorite Things and Clearly Besotted to create my rainy day scene. A huge shout-out goes to my friend Faith at Daffodil Cards who sent me a link to find some crafting magazines. The Clearly Besotted stamps were a freebie with one of those magazines!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to admire the rest of the Girlfriends' creations - and then link up your own April Showers project while you're there!

Be well, stay home and stay safe!

Happy Mother's Day

Wednesday, April 15, 2020
It's Brenda's turn to host our latest Little Red Wagon challenge and she's been inspired by Freddie Mercury singing, "Mamaaaaa!". This is Brenda's fun way to announce that we're creating Mother's Day projects this week!

I recently learned that alcohol markers work well on cardstock. I'd no idea! Anyway, I decided to give it a go and was pleased with the results! I used some new stamps from Studio Katia for the pretty peonies and an older set for the Happy Mother's Day. There's lots of silver heating embossing that happened too! I'm really pleased with the way my card turned out and can't wait to give it to my incredible Mum next month. It sounds as though I still won't be able to see her (due to physical distancing still in place in Canada) but still want her to know how very much loved she is.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out the rest of the Girlfriends' Mother's Day projects and then turn up Bohemian Rhapsody and sign along as you create your own project for this week's challenge!

We're mixing things up this week at Little Red Wagon. Jan is our hostess and she's chosen the theme "Mix 'Em Up!". Simply use products from more than one company on your projects and you're mixing 'em up!

I started with a Mini Toucan from Flora & Fauna. The background was stamped with flowers and leaves from the same set. I used frames from Your Next Stamp. The twine is from My Craft Spot (no longer in business). I used my Zig markers for some watercolouring.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then use a variety of products to Mix 'Em Up and join our challenge!

Prayers and Love

Wednesday, April 1, 2020
It's time for our newest Little Red Wagon challenge. Doni is the hostess this week and she's calling for "Blue"! Anything goes, as long as there's blue on your creation.

I used some more dies from my new Flora & Fauna "Woodland Flowers" dies (which I used for last week's card too) to create the flowers and leafy branches behind them. They're all layered on a stencilled background which I sponged after cutting out a doily from a My Craft Spot die and using that as my stencil. The "prayers" cut and sentiment are a set from Hero Arts. Prayers and love are needed around the world.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' creations - and then pull out your blues to create a project of your own!

I do hope that you are all keeping well and safe. Please remember to stay home. Other than the dog's walks, I haven't left the house in over two weeks. It can be done!
