Luurve (Love) ~ Challenge #433 at Little Red Wagon

Happy Wednesday and Happy Valentine's Day.  We start a new challenge today at Little Red Wagon,  Jan is our hostess and her challenge is LUURVE (her word for LOVE).  It doesn't necessarily have to be a Valentine's theme but can be anything love ~ wedding, anniversary or thinking of you love. 

Here's the two cards I made using the stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Colour My World.  I really like the stamp set but wished there was a "u" in colour ~ I am Canadian after all.  Both of these cards were for Valentine's Day, one as a special order and the other for my hubby.



And the inside of both:


Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out what the other girlfriends have made for inspiration and link up a love project of your own.

Shades of Red ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #432

(This is my second post today.  If you are looking for The Merry Christmas Challenge specifically or just want to see another one of my cards please scroll down.  Thanks!)

Hello again.  Welcome back to my blog and to a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  This week I am the hostess and my challenge is called  SHADES OF RED.  I want to see all shades of reds and pinks on your projects.  The only exception are neutrals (white, black, brown).

This card is a bit of a departure from my usual "cutesy" style and I am pleased with the way it turned out.  The rose image is a free digi colouring image coloured with Copics.  Background is Tim Holtz distress inks on watercolour paper splattered with water and black paint.  Sentiment is from Michaels $1.50 bin from many years ago.  Sequins are from my stash.  An elegant, romantic Valentine's Day card.  (and yes, the leaves of the image are green but I didn't think black leaves would be too appropriate....)


As always, head on over to Little Red Wagon and check out the inspiration of the Shades of Red from the other girlfriends.  And link up a project of your own.  You have until next Tuesday evening when I will pick the ones that stood out the most to me.

Thanks for coming by.  Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!



Let It Snow (Merry Christmas Challenge #6)

Hello.  Today begins a new challenge at


where it is ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES CHRISTMAS with an optional twist.  This week's twist is CHRISTMAS LIGHTS.  

This is the second card of a three card on-line shaker card class I took.  (First one can be found HERE). All supplies came in a kit and I think this is my favourite of the three.  The "snow" does stick to the inside of the shaker some but it is a nice effect.  


It's never too early to start your Christmas projects so why not join us this week at The Merry Christmas Challenge and link up something Christmas of your own.  Going to be great to see all of your creations.

Have a great day!!

Birthday Balloons ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #431

Good Morning.  Wow, can you believe it is the last day of January already?  Where has the time gone???  Anyhow, it is Wednesday and time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  We welcome our newest girlfriend, Imke, as hostess this week for her first challenge.  Her theme is BIRTHDAY BALLOONS,  and in her words, you are never too young or too old for birthday balloons.  :)

My card uses the fun stamp set and sentiment from Your Next Stamp called Insanely Happy.  I coloured the troll to look similar to Poppy from the movie Trolls with my copic markers.  Patterned paper is Echo Park I Love Sunshine.  Enamel dots are glittery gumdrops from Your Next Stamp.


Make sure you head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the inspiration from the other girlfriends and link up some birthday balloons of your own.  Looking forward to seeing your makes.

Have a great Wednesday.

Round Up Time ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #429

Hey there.  That time of the week again.  Time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Brenda is our hostess this week and she wants to see ROUND UP TIME!  She's not talking math or cowboys but wants to see round projects. 

This was a hard one for me as square and rectangle are the usual cards I make.  So in order to get a round card I folded a piece of white card stock in half and cut it out along the fold with a circle cutter.  I used three different blues of Tim Holtz distress inks for the sky and then used white watercolour paint and a paint brush to add splatter to look like snow.  Hill is made from Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders.  Image is Kraftin' Kimmie Furry Holiday Wishes coloured with Copics.  Sentiment is Kraftin' Kimmie Winter Whitney


Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the inspiration from the other girlfriends and link up a round project of your own.  

Thanks for dropping by.  See you again real soon. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #428 ~ Boy Oh Boy!!

NOTE:  This is my second post for today.  Scroll down for The Merry Christmas Challenge.

Welcome!!  Time of the week again for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess is Jan and she's saying BOY OH BOY!  Now she's not shaking her head in wonder or anger but wants to see your masculine projects.  Projects for boys or men.  Every time this theme comes up I seem to get people who say you can give the same projects to men and women.  While I don't disagree I know the men in my life would not appreciate the colours, flowers and bling that I tend to use on my cards.  So more metal and wood and less bling it is for me.

Stamp is an older one from Stamping Bella and is one I have used before but I really like it for masculine projects.  Paper is Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Chill.  Sentiment is from Michaels $1.50 bin also from a while back.  Stars were in my stash.


And this year I promised myself that I would totally finish my cards so here is the inside:


You know what to do.  Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the inspiration from the other girlfriends and then link up a masculine project of your own.  Can't wait to see what you create.

Enjoy the rest of your day!!  Happy Wednesday!
