Be True to Who You Are

Wednesday, May 26, 2021
Our wonderful hostess at Little Red Wagon this week is Imke and she wants us to "Say it with flowers". The gardens are springing to life here and it's a delight to behold the beauty of this time of year. Your project can have anything to do with flowers.

I pulled out my NBUS Brush Petal 2 stamp set from Flora & Fauna. I love the look of the floral background I created and wish I'd used these stamps sooner! I finished things off with a sentiment strip from my stash and a couple of dew drops. This card was so quick and easy to put together with the stamps doing all the hard work. It was perfect for me to get back outside to enjoy the great outdoors!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' floral creations - and know you're very welcome to join the fun as well!

Beary Best Birthday

Wednesday, May 19, 2021
Happy Wednesday! I'm delighted to be hosting at Little Red Wagon this week. In keeping with my 80s hits themes, I'm going with Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again" and am looking for anything related to travel. Years ago, I used my Silhouette to create a decal for my car which read, "I don't know where I'm going but I sure know where I've been" - which are the first two lines of "Here I Go Again". Whenever the song came on, my husband and I used to sing the song at the top of our lungs together as we drove along. Happy memories. 

This coming weekend is a holiday one in Canada. I was supposed to go camping and booked my site months ago. Unfortunately, our lockdown has been extended until at least June 2 so "here I stay again"! The pool has been opened though so I'll spend the time working on getting that ready for swimming. In addtion to holiday Monday, I've actually taken Friday and Tuesday off as vacation days and am looking forward to a long-overdue break!

I used My Favorite Things' Town Bear stamp set for my little bear, tree, stop sign and sentiment. The background was stamped using MFT's City Block Background. I bought the stamp when it first came out thinking I'd do all sorts of things with it... and finally inked it up for this project!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the projects created by the rest of the talented design team - and then make your own travel-themed creation to join the fun. I can't wait to see what you make!

Flippin' Fabulous

Brenda is hosting this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon and she's chosen the theme "Sand and Sea". She's looking for anything to do with the ocean or beach. I absolutely love the ocean and can't wait for things to open up so I can sail and travel again. 

I decided to go with the "sand" part of "Sand and Sea" and coloured up this fun little crab from Your Next Stamp. Even if I can't get to the sea anytime soon, I can - and will - wear flip flops!! 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then make and link up your "Sand and Sea" projects!


MUM love you

Wednesday, May 5, 2021
How is it already May?! Time seems to be flying by even though it's pretty much the same thing day in and day out. I still feel blessed to be working from home and as safe as possible from all that's going on around me. The temperatures have been cold and wet - and I've got the pool opening booked in two weeks and a camping weekend in three!! (I've learned that my camping trailer/caravan will be delayed another month or two at a minimum so I'll still be tenting!) Hopefully, the temperatures start to rise soon.

Jan is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's simply calling "Hers!" Any feminine-type project will fit the bill. 

With Mother's Day coming up this Sunday in Canada, I decided to create a card for my beautiful Mum. I've been so fortunate to have been raised by such a wonderful woman who lives kindness and grace in all she does. Sometimes, I hear people say that I remind them of my mum and I can't think of a higher compliment! I strive to be like her and give thanks for the example she has been to me and for me. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the projects made by the Girlfriends - and then create your own "Hers!" craft to join in this week's challenge!
