Little Red Wagon Challenge #420 ~ Penguins and Polar Bears

Good morning.  It is my turn to hostess at Little Red Wagon and my challenge for you is PENGUINS AND POLAR BEARS ~ I want to see your projects with one or both of these winter cuties.

Here's what I did.  This card uses a number of Lawn Fawn products ~ Here We Go A~Waddling stamp set, Snow Cool stamp set, Stitched Hillside Border dies and Knit Picky 6 x 6 paper pad.  It was fun to make !!


Now it's your turn.  Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the amazing inspiration from the other girlfriends and then use In Links to link up a penguin/polar bear project of your own.  Remember, it doesn't always have to be a card.  Anything to do with paper crafting will qualify.

Have a great day!!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #419 ~ Harvest Time

Good day!  It is time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess this week is Sandy and her theme is HARVEST TIME.  She wants to see anything having to do with Fall on your project ~ pumpkins, turkeys, etc.

I dug deep into my little red wagon and pulled out an older stamp by The Greeting Farm called Forest Friends that I had never used.  I coloured up this cute family of squirrels with their acorn because it reminded me of the Fall season when the animals prepare for Winter too.  Patterned paper and enamel dots are Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice.  Sentiment is Lawn Fawn.


Why not head over to Little Red Wagon and check out the inspiration from the other girlfriends and link up a harvest project of your own.

Have a great day!!!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #418 ~ Owl About Me!!

NOTE: If you are looking for The Merry Christmas Challenge post click HERE or scroll down.  But just an fyi, my projects today for both design team challenges co-ordinate so you might want to check them both out :)

Welcome to a new challenge today for Little Red Wagon.  Kate is our hostess this week and her challenge is OWL ABOUT ME ~ she wants to see owls (or other birds) on our projects.  Since I just purchased a new set of bird stamps this was a great challenge for me.

Birdie stamp and sentiment are from Merry and Bright Birdies by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps coloured with my Copic markers.  Patterned paper is Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Chill.  Gumdrops are Your Next Stamp Holly Jolly Sparkly.


And here is the set of the card and the tag.   I like the use of the non-traditional colours for this Christmas set.


So, as always, head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the inspiration for the girlfriends and link up an owl or bird project of your own.

Have a GREAT day!

Autumn Greetings

Hello.  I have a very special card to show you today for more than one reason.  It was a card I made at a card class at a scrapbooking store. If you are local to the Kitchener area or if it is within driving distance, you must come visit Two Scrapbook Friends and take a class with Stephen Kropf.  It is special to me because 1) I LOVE Autumn/Fall and 2) Stephen's father drew the image and Stephen was able to walk us through colouring it.  Supplies were all provided in a kit. 


See, wasn't I right?  It is a gorgeous Fall scene.  I actually bought one more and am going to design a card of my own with it and maybe change up the colours a bit too.

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great Friday and a good weekend.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #417 ~ What's Red All Over?

Good morning.  My, how the week's fly by and I will have that card I promised last week up sometime this week (hint, hint...Friday) in case you were wondering.  Life seems to get away as it does for all of us sometimes.  Welcome to another Wednesday and a new challenge for Little Red Wagon.  Jan is our hostess and she has called her challenge "What's Red All Over?"  Can you guess what she wants to see on your project....that's correct, red.  While you don't have to use all red the majority of your project needs to be red, not just a tiny embellishment :)

Like the good girlfriend that I am, I stuck to the rules and my card is a definite monochromatic of red.  Since the photograph I added a few clear sequins for a bit of sparkle.  Image and sentiment are from Kraftin' Kimmie Merry and Bright Birdies and Christmas Blessings.  Paper is Lawn Fawn Knit Picky. 


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

Thanks for coming by.  Have a great day!!!!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #416 ~ Shape Up!

Hey there and welcome to a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess is Brenda and she wants us to SHAPE UP~ now I am thinking it is not in the form of exercise and sweat but in the form of shaped projects.  Anything but a rectangle or square.

Truthfully I am not a huge fan of shaped cards or even of how to make them so I went with another shape that is pretty common and made a circular shaker tag for a Christmas gift.  Stamp set is Lawn Fawn Here We Go A-Waddlin' and paper is Lawn Fawn Perfect Plaid Christmas. 


Well that's it for today.  Short and sweet, but you head over to Little Red Wagon, check out the inspiration from the other girlfriends and link up a shaped project of your own. 

Thanks for dropping in.  I hope to be back later this week with another card to share.  Until then, have a great day!!
