Love You Mum

Wednesday, April 26, 2023
It's the lovely Shani's turn to host our weekly Little Red Wagon challenge and she's calling for "Slim Pickings". Shani is looking for us to showcase slimline cards.

I decided to create a Mother's Day card for my beautiful mum as Mother's Day is coming up the second Monday in May here in Canada. 

A couple of years ago, I purchased a set of (generic) slimline panels and I think I used them (and not even the entire set) once, so this was the perfect kick to get my act in gear. I also purchased the "MUM" die set from Simon Says Stamp a year or two ago and that's never been used either - until now! The "LOVE YOU" sentiment is from Studio Katia and heat embossed. 

Years and years ago, I purchased some flowers which I do still use from time to time although they mostly sit forgotten. It was so much fun to pull them out again to create my card. Fortunately, Mum lives less than a kilometer away from my house so I won't have to worry about things getting squished in the post. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out the Girlfriends' take on this week's Slim Pickings challenge - and then create and link up your own slimline projects! 

All-Star Birthday

The wonderful Doni is "Star Struck" at Little Red Wagon this week. She's our fabulous hostess and she's looking for stars to adorn our projects.

My younger brother is turning 50 this month and I made this card for him. There are indeed (at least I really hope there are!!) 50 stars. He really is an all-star, having received all the best genes in the family. I'm proud to be his sister. And, hopefully Doni is proud of me with all those stars!! :)

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see all the starry works of art over there! We'd love for you to join our Star Struck challenge too! 

One Step at a Time

It's finally spring here in central Ontario and I'm loving it!! Yesterday, when I returned from work, I could see some daffodils just starting to poke through the ground. Woo hoo!

The fabulous Chrissy is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's looking for layers. While I'm peeling off the layers now that spring has arrived, I've piled them on to create my card this week. Chrissy asks for at least two layers.

I created a motivational card for my Memorydex. I haven't made one in ages and, since it's been so long, I realized when I added the card to my Memorydex that it's upside down!! Oops! As the cards are for my own enjoyment, I wasn't overly concerned. 

The card was made entirely with scrap bits of paper. And there are a number of layers: the card, the mat, the doily on the right, the daffodil cuts, the little heart (which I dry embossed), the round frame with sentiment and the bottom border. I also added some stamping, inking and stencilling on the card before finishing things off with some gems. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Design Team has made - and then layer up with your products to join the fun! 

Happy Easter

Happy April! The delightful Imke is hosting this week's Little Red Wagon challenge and she's chosen the theme "Spring or Fall?". Your choice! Imke is looking for any sort of paper projects with a spring or fall theme. I'm sure she'd be super impressed if you combined them too!

As spring is my favourite of the seasons, this was my choice as soon as I read the theme. And, as daffodils are my favourite flowers, I decided they would be the highlight of my spring card. I used a die from Simon Says Stamp and layered some of the daffodil cuts atop a stencilled background. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to be inspired by the rest of the Design Team. We'd love to have you join us!

And for those of you who celebrate Easter, enjoy the long weekend, the blessings of spring and perhaps a chocolate egg or two from the Easter bunny!
