Little Red Wagon Challenge #351 ~ I'm Hungry!

Hello there my blog reading friends.  A whole week has passed and it is Wednesday again.  That means time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon and our hostess this week is my friend Kate. She is saying "I'M HUNGRY!" and while I am typing this blog post she is right about me ~ I am hungry...and off to make supper soon.   Supper is a different challenge altogether ~ I am not much of a cook and don't enjoy it unlike paper crafting.  But back to the challenge at hand, Kate wants to see food on our projects this week.

While checking out some stamp companies I came across this adorable set from Lawn Fawn called Pizza My Heart.  I just knew it was the perfect set for this challenge and it will be great to use over and over again for different occasions.  The fun thing about this is you can add whatever "toppings" you like to the "pizza".  The heart shaped pizzas were coloured with Copics and added to a background resembling an Italian restaurant. A touch of twine added for embellishment and a simple but oh so cute card.

And inside:

Thanks for dropping by.  Join us this week at Little Red Wagon, check out what the other girlfriends have made and link up a food project of your own.

Have a great day!!!  I know I will as it is my day off.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door ~ Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments Designs ~  Anything Goes
613 Avenue Create  ~ Anything Goes with a Twist ( I used black, red and green as the twist)

Little Red Wagon Challenge #350 ~ You're A Star

Good morning my friends.  Glad you dropped in for another new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess today is Mandy and the theme is "YOU'RE A STAR!" ~ she wants to see your projects with stars.  But secretly, I think she picked this challenge for me.  It's my birthday today and Mandy thinks I am a star.....LOL!!!!

Seriously, the card I am showing you today I made a few weeks ago actually as a custom order for a lady who has twins ~ a boy and a girl ~  to give her husband for Father's Day.  He is a huge baseball fan.  This digi image from My Besties called Bestie Baseball Buds was perfect.  I coloured it with Copics, paired it up with paper from Simple Stories Let's party and added some star butttons that I had in my stash.

So come on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the star projects that the other girlfriends have created and link up something of your know you wanna.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Tiddly Inks Design Team Call

Tiddly Inks is holding a design team call.  You can read all about the details HERE.  I decided to throw my hat in the ring and see where it lands.  One of the qualifications was to use your favourite Tiddly Inks stamp.  I can't say I have a favourite stamp but I do adore the Wryn images with all of her flowing hair so she was my choice.

I had a custom order for a young girl of 14 who was graduating from grade 8 and heading to high school next year.  Her school colours are red and gold so I coloured Wryn in them with my Copics and paired her up with a turquoise doily and patterned paper from my stash.  I have had it all so long I do not know the manufacturer.  I added a "bouquet" of paper flowers and viola, a youthful looking grad girl.  Sentiments are on the inside.


A close up of Wryn the Graduate:

Best of luck to all the other applicants.  I hope you have had as much fun colouring up a Tiddly Inks image as I have for the design team call.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope to see you again soon.  Have a great weekend.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #349 ~ Summer Time!

Summer time and the living is easy....I think that's a line from a song. Anyone know which??  LOL!!  Anyhow, it is Wednesday and time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess is Donna and her theme is SUMMERTIME.  Right now it is hot and humid in my part of Ontario, Canada so Summertime it is ~ perfect for this week's theme.

My card uses an image from my stash that I have coloured up a few times.  It's a Whimsy Stamp by Elisabeth Bell called Skippy and Bobbin.  I really like this cutie with her puppy on the beach.  I coloured her up in pinks and purples using my Copic markers, used Soleil patterned paper from Basic Grey and a die cut from Spellbinders Romantic Ovals.  The finishing touch was real shells paired with a large bow.  Sentiment stamp is from a retired set CARDZ TV "Good Friends". This actually was a custom order and it turned out great.

Thanks for dropping by today.  Why not check out what the other girlfriends have done at Little Red Wagon and then show us your best Summertime project.  Looking forward to seeing what you create.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #348 ~ Button It Up!

Hello there.  Another week has passed and it is once again time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess for the week is Brenda and she has entitled her challenge BUTTON IT UP! ~ she wants to see buttons on your projects.

First off, I just want to say thanks for the encouragement after I totally lost all creativity for last week's challenge and posted late.  It helps to know it happens to all of us one time or another.

For our button challenge I decided to make a wreath with buttons.  I had an idea in my mind but went to Pinterest and combined a few things I saw and ended up with this.  All of these items were scraps and from my stash.  Yeah me....used up some more scraps!


Thanks for dropping by.  Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday and that I will see you back soon.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #347 ~ Kraft~Tastic!

Hey there peeps!  Time of the week again for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess this week is Jan and she chose the theme KRAFT~TASTIC ~ she wants to see you use kraft paper on your projects.  Easy peasy, right?

EDITED TO ADD: For those of you who come visit on a regular basis you will see that this is being posted on Wednesday evening instead of Wednesday morning.  It's confession time.  I left this project for the last minute and last evening it just would not come together for me no matter how I tried.  So I decided to give up on it, go get some rest and try again with fresh eyes this evening after work.  This bag came together in about 30 minutes, it all co-ordinates and looks more like the picture in my head did yesterday than the mess I was seeing on my craft table.  So without further rambling.....

I used a kraft gift bag and decorated it using patterned paper from Simple Stories Let's Party.  Image is from Your Next Stamp coloured with Copic markers.  All other supplies were taken from my endless stash :)

A close up of the image:

So why not check out what all the other girlfriends have made for inspiration and link up a project of your own using kraft paper.  Remember it doesn't always have to be a card.

Have a great day night now! LOL!!

Custom Orders and Copics

Good morning.  Happy Friday.  Do you have weekend plans?  I am actually not sure what I am doing but I do know that Sunday is Father's Day and I have been extremely busy this week working on custom orders for that.  This is one of them for a co-worker from her son to his father.

Although this image from Stamping Bella called Game On seems so small it took over 46 Copic markers to colour and shade.  I think that may be a record on a single image.  Patterned paper, including the small project life type cards and enamel dots are from Simple Stories So Rad.

(Can you spot all the colours?)

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope to have a few more custom cards to show you over the next little while.  Have a fantastic weekend.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Craft Rocket Challenge #17  ~ For a Man/Boy
Inky Chicks #68 ~ Father's Day or Male
Marker Pop ~ Father's Day

Little Red Wagon Challenge #346 ~ Off We Go!!

Hello there.  It seems like I just blink and it is time for another new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  This week I have the privilege of hostessing and my theme is OFF WE GO!  I have vacation on my mind (not that I am taking one but it is the season for them) and want to see cards and projects that contain a vacation theme of some kind.

As some of you may know, my grand children live across the country from me and are much too small to be coming to visit on their own yet but I couldn't help but colour up this cute little image from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps on her way to Grandma's for vacation.  Patterned paper is from Simple Stories Enchanted. I can only dream about it at the moment....

A close up of the image:

So grab a cup of your favourite beverage, check out what all the other girlfriends have made, leave us some love so we know you visited and come back and link up a vacation themed project of your own. Looking forward to visiting and commenting on what you do.  I will be back next Tuesday with my top picks.
