You are My World

Wednesday, June 24, 2020
Brenda is our fabulous hostess at Little Red Wagon and she's thinking "About that solar eclipse". Brenda is challenging us to us the sun, moon, planets and/or stars on our projects.

I decided to use Planet Earth and stars to create my card. I did both heat and dry embossing on my distress inked background. My fingers were a huge mess mid-creation but cleaned up quite nicely!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the creations made by the rest of the Girlfriends. We'd love to have you join the fun too!

This week's Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge is Shoot for the Stars. I'll be linking my card up there as well.

Dogs Leave Paw Prints

Wednesday, June 17, 2020
I can't believe it's Wednesday again already! These days are flying by. I feel that I'm constantly on the go - even though I haven't been leaving the house! The weather has been glorious here and there have been several times that I've moved part of my workstation outdoors to work on the deck. Basically, this just means that I take the laptop outside to work but it sounds a bit more professional to call it my workstation! Typically, I work with two large monitors. However, I'm willing to sacrifice screen size in order to enjoy the sun!

Jan is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's looking for "Animal Antics". If your project has an animal of any kind, shape or size, it can be a contender in our challenge!

I created a little sympathy card for my son's girlfriend's co-worker who lost her beloved pup. I used stamps from Reverse Confetti and a Simon Says die (which I cut and used as a stencil) for the background. And if you look very closely, you'll see there's a little paw print in one of the hearts above the dog house on the right-hand side.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' creations - and then link up your own Animal Antics projects!

Sending You Sunshine and Smiles

Wednesday, June 10, 2020
We are finally being blessed with incredible weather here in Central Ontario. As I'm working from home, it's easy for me to take all my breaks outside. I've also been eating all my meals outside and just loving it!

Doni is our Hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's calling out, "Hello Sunshine!". Doni is looking for suns or bright yellow (or both!) on our projects.

I used a Simon Says Stamp "Happy Days" stamp set that was part of a card kit from years ago. These images look so happy that they make me happy!

Please get out your suns and your yellows to create your own Hello Sunshine projects for this week's challenge. Be sure to check out the rest of the Girlfriends' projects at Little Red Wagon too!

For You - Gift Card Holder

Wednesday, June 3, 2020
Yippee! It's Wednesday! I'm having an increasingly difficult time keeping my days apart as there is not much to distinguish one from the next. We are still self-isolating here and, although a few things are starting to open up, I'm not going out except for picking up my "click and collect" online grocery orders. Even with that, I just sit in the car while somebody else loads the trunk!

This week, Imke is our hostess at Little Red Wagon. She's challenging us to use our patterned paper (or to create our own background paper). I have a ridiculously huge stash of patterned paper that I rarely use so was excited to look through it and create. I decided on paper with little paw prints and used a dog and kitten image to go with it. When I was done, I looked at it and frowned which was interesting as the sentiment read simply, "Smile". Anyway, I'm now posting a card that I made a few years back while visiting a friend and using her supplies. I'd never posted this card - which is a card/gift card holder - and thought this week's challenge would be a great time to do so. Plus, it spared me from having to post my non-blogworthy card.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out the projects made by the rest of the Girlfriends - and then get out your patterned paper (or create your own background paper) to join in the fun!
