Wishing You All the Best

It's the talented Chrissy's turn to host this week's Little Red Wagon challenge and she wants to see things get warm by seeing creations using warm colours. Pull out your reds, oranges, yellows, etc., to see what you can come up with!

I was short on crafting time before my holidays so pulled this card together rather quickly. I'd used some brown at the bottom to represent the ground but I'm wishing I hadn't!! Oh well. I added some Wink of Stella on the hot air balloon and the stamped image and sentiment are heat embossed as well. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' warm colour creations - and then link up one (or two!) of your own!

PS When this posts, I'll be off camping and hope for warm/hot weather! 

Happy Birthday

It's the talented Imke's turn to host our Little Red Wagon challenge this week and she's continuing her "either, or" theme of the year. This week, our choice is "Flora or Fauna" and I decided to go the route of flora. I just got back from Bahamas, having gone there on a cruise last week, and I was in awe of the wonderful, bright florals there.

I used a variety of leaf stamps from the stamp company which has been perfectly named for this challenge - Flora and Fauna! I used some generic square frame dies as well as some generic word dies. For the final touch, I added a leaf die cut from Your Next Stamp. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends chose to do for the challenge - and then create a flora or fauna project of your own! 

Amazing, Marvelous You - Scrabble Tile Card

Wednesday, May 17, 2023
Yippee! It's my turn hosting at Little Red Wagon and I'm still singing Queen songs this year. This challenge, I'm singing along to "Play the Game". I'm looking for paper crafting projects that have anything to do with or are inspired by games or sports. 

A few years ago, my daughter gave me a bag of crafting Scrabble tiles and I thought this was just the right opportunity to pull them back out. I made this card for the wonderful mother of a friend. Her name is Rika so I used the tiles to spell out her name. 

Being Canadian, I would have preferred an extra letter L in marvellous!! Otherwise, I'm happy with how the card turned out. And, in the card's defence, I did willingly and knowingly choose the sentiment despite the spelling. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created. We invite you to "Play the Game" too!!

Praying for You Tissue Box

This week, the wonderful Brenda is hosting our Little Red Wagon challenge and she's looking for "Spring Flowers". Even though daffodils are my favourite spring flower (in fact, my favourite flower), I decided to go with tulips on my project.

A friend of mine is going through a particularly difficult time and recently had a funeral to attend. I made a little tissue box for her to tuck in her purse, reminding her that she is very much in my thoughts and prayers. 

As this tissue box has a built-in card, I was able to write a short note of encouragement to her as well. 

I'd used the free tissue box cut file a few times years ago and was happy to find it again! If you're interested, you can find the cut file HERE. It's the perfect size for travel-pack tissues. The sentiment and sentiment frame/circle are from My Craft Spot, the corners from EK Success and the little tulip inside from a Martha Stewart punch. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the spring flower creations made by the Design Team - and then create and link up one of your own!

Wishing You Sunnier Days

The wonderful Janice is hosting this week's Little Red Wagon challenge and she's looking for things that are clean and simple. I wasn't sure what to create as there are so many options! My daughter suggested that I go literal and have a broom image with a sentiment reading, "You sweep me off my feet". I checked my stamps and don't have a broom image though. I'll have to keep that idea in my back pocket for another time.

I have a couple of friends who are going through especially difficult times right now so I thought a care to show I care would be a good idea. I used MFT's Weather With You stamp and die set and created a clean and simple card. Well, it's clean other than the sand on which the little panda is standing. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' clean and simple projects - and then we'd love for you to link up one of your own!
