Feel Better

Jan is hosting our latest Little Red Wagon challenge and she's calling out, "Digi Doo"! Jan is looking for us to use digital images (or sentiments, papers, etc.) on our creations. 

I don't typically use digital images or elements on my cards. However, back in March, My Favorite Things offered four of their Birdie Brown stamp sets in digital format and I was fortunate enough to see the posting and download (and save!) the images to my computer. I'd originally forgotten about having done this and was scouring the internet for digital images to use for this week's challenge.

Unfortunately, my son's girlfriend has been quite ill with a kidney infection. She had to undergo a test for Covid and we're all incredibly thankful that the results are negative. I decided to make a card for Kaitlyn and that's when I remembered the digital images and finally put them to use! I was texting with Kaitlyn earlier today and the antibiotics are starting to have a positive effect which is wonderful news!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon and see how the rest of the Girlfriends used digital stamps! And then try it out for yourself in order to join our challenge this week!

You're Fintastic

Doni is hosting our challenge at Little Red Wagon this week and she's looking for stencils. 

I've purchased a number of stencils over the past few months so this was a great opportunity for me to put a couple to good use! I layered a MFT Perfect Pool stencil atop an Oval Extraordinaire stencil and rotated the Perfect Pool stencil three times to get my watery background. It's incredible how easy stencilling makes creating a fun background! I added a fish and sentiment from MFT's Beach Buds as well as a few "air bubble" gems and I had a card!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then pull out your stencils to make a project for our challenge this week!

Bon Voyage

Imke is our host at Little Red Wagon and she's saying "Goodbye". Fortunately, she's not leaving the team! She is looking for projects that have anything to do with "Goodbye" - from moving, retirement, holidays or even a sympathy/loss. 

I was a bit stumped on what to do and had a look through my supplies for inspiration. I came across a free "Happy Travels" stamp set that came with a Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine a few years ago. It doesn't fit in my stamp caddy so I keep the set in a drawer with a few other oversized sets. Suddenly, I was stumped no more!

I usually do a fair bit of travelling. I love to travel but I also love to plan trips! I'm looking forward to the day that travelling will be safe once again. Until then, I'm enjoying the opportunity to create some digital photo books to capture our happy travel memories!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then create and link your own "Goodbye" creation! 

You Can Always Trust Me

I can't believe it's August already! It's also hard to believe that we've been in lockdown for almost five months now. Even though things are starting to open up a bit more here, we're still staying home as much as possible. 

This week's challenge at Little Red Wagon is "Happy Days". Basically, we're looking for anything that will make somebody smile. As I'm this week's hostess, I'm looking forward to lots of smiles and laughs as I check out all the entries! 

When lockdown first started, I decided that I needed a new hobby to entertain me during the evenings. I'm not sure what I was thinking as work has been so busy that I'm never at a loss for things to do - even in the evenings. Anyway, my new hobby is cupcake baking and decorating so when I saw some of the new cupcake stamps from My Favorite Things, I knew they'd be a perfect addition to my stamp collection. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon and smile at the creations of the Girlfriends. Then, please make and link up your own "Happy Days" project! I can't wait to see what you make!
