Joy to the World

This week's Little Red Wagon is all about glitz, glitter, gleam, and glow! Jan is our awesome hostess and she's looking for anything that sparkles or shines. I'm thinking I pulled this one off! 

I cut out a variety of snowflakes (and a little doily) from a two different pink glitter cardstock and some silver glitter cardstock. I layered them up in different ways and adhered them to my ink-smooshed background. I added some clear gems (although they look grey in the photo!) and some pink sequins and also used a metallic silver embossing powder on my sentiment. I saw a card similar to this ages ago but I'm not sure where. Thanks to whoever provided the inspiration! 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to be inspired by the glitz, glitter, gleam and glow shared by the Girlfriends - and then get out your sparkly and shiny stash to join the fun!

It's the lovely Doni's turn to host our Little Red Wagon weekly challenge and she's hungry!! This week's theme is "Let's eat!" Doni is looking for any and all food-related creations.

My daughter appreciates going through my stash for birthday cards and recently let me know I'm starting to run low so I decided to seize the opportunity to replenish my collection. And what a better food for a birthday celebration than a cupcake (or three)!

Now it's time to head to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then pull out your own tasty supplies to join this week's challenge. 

With Sympathy

It's our wonderful Chrissy's turn to host this week at Little Red Wagon and she wants to see Flower Power! Use a flower on your project and show us what you've got! 

I used a stamp from MFT which is now my go-to for sympathy cards. I've used it a few times in a few different ways and here's what I did for this week.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to be inspired by the rest of the Girlfriends. And, speaking of Girlfriends, a HUGE welcome to the newest member of our design team, Shani (aka Paperesse)!! I'm thrilled she's joining us with her incredible talent. Bienvenue Shani! 

Merry Christmoose

Imke is our fabulous Little Red Wagon hostess this week and she's looking for any and all things "Winter" - from colours to activities to landscapes and more!

Living in Canada, our winter colours are white and more white! I decided to create a little winter scene for a Christmas card with lots of white to represent our snow - but do have some blue sky in there too. It's difficult to tell but there are three stamped and heat-embossed sets of snowflakes in the sky. We do have a number of evergreen trees so I include one of those too. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the winter projects - and then create and link up one of your own!

Come Let Us Adore Him

Welcome to Yesterday! This is my way of introducing you to our latest Little Red Wagon challenge. I'm hosting this week and, in keeping with Beatles' hits as inspiration, I've chosen "Yesterday". I'm looking for vintage projects or projects with vintage elements.

I'm thinking my project looks a bit more rustic/farmhouse than vintage but I did do a lot of distressing to make my project look a hundred years old! I started with a piece of leftover lumber that my son used this summer when replacing part of the fence that had been destroyed by a fallen tree during a derecho. I cut the wood to 5x5 and then started banging up the edges. I covered it with chalk paint (black and white) and then printed a Christmas graphic, being sure to reverse the graphic before printing on regular computer paper. After Mod-Podging (not sure that's really a verb!) the image to the board and waiting overnight, I rubbed off the paper to leave the ink transfer. It's not as clear as it could/should be as I used an ink jet instead of laser jet printer. Once everything was done, I banged up the edges and front of the wood with various objects and added a bit of grey paint. I finally sanded down the edges to distress things a bit more. I finished things off with some jute, some twine and a little bell (to which I had added some grey ink to distress). 

That's the "Before" pic!

I chose the graphic as O Come All Ye Faithful was my gran's favourite carol. Whenever I hear/see it (or a lyric from the carol), I am reminded of her. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' vintage projects - and then create one of your own to link up!
