Riding Along ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #443

Well, I am back.  I had an incredible vacation and visit with family.  Time out there just goes by much too quickly.  As I promised, I am your hostess this week and my challenge is entitled RIDING ALONG ~ I want to see your projects featuring some sort of transportation.

I guess you could say that one of my son's passions inspired this card.  I don't ride myself but did sit on the bike while he was working on it in his barn.


My card features a retired stamp from none other than my fave Kraftin' Kimmie.  She is coloured with Copics. Patterned paper is Lawn Fawn Plaid Rainbow.  Embellishments are from the Dollar store.


You know what to do ~ head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the inspiration from the other girlfriends and link up a transportation project of your own.  Can't wait to see what you create.  I will be by to visit each entry. 

Have a great day!!

COUS ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #442

Hello.  Time for a new weekly challenge at Little Red Wagon.  While you are reading this, I am on a much needed vacation with my son, daughter-in-law and 3 grandchildren.  But the challenge must go on so this is a scheduled post :)  Our hostess this week is Jan and her theme is COUS.  Now let me explain that one ~ she wants to see  CARDS OF UNUSUAL SIZE ~ so while rectangles and squares are acceptable just not in the usual 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" or 5" x 5" size.  Shaped cards are also a go.

One of my favourite sizes to make cards is 3" x 3".  I usually make a set of cards in that size and today's project is no exception.  These note cards feature a retired mini stamp from Your Next Stamp coloured with my Copics.  Patterned paper is Lawn Fawn Rainbow Plaid.  Scripty Thanks die is also Lawn Fawn along with the matching mini sentiment I received as a thank you for an order I placed.  Gumdrops (also known as glittery enamel dots) are Your Next Stamp.




You know what to do....head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the inspiration from the other girlfriends and link up a card of an unusual size of your own.

Have a great day and I will see you back from vacation and hostessing the challenge next week.

The image is an adult colouring page that I sized, printed on Hammermill paper and coloured with my Copics. Patterned paper is Rainbow Plaid from Lawn Fawn.  Banner die and gumdrops are Your Next Stamp.  Sentiment is High Hopes heat embossed in white. Wooden butterfly from my stash.

Old MacDonald ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #440


OLD MACDONALD HAD A FARM,
EI-EI-O
AND ON HIS FARM HE HAD A CHALLENGE
EI-EI-O!!!

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess today is Kate, and if you hadn't guessed yet, her theme is OLD MACDONALD ~ she wants to see your projects full of farm animals.  

I used a retired rubber stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps called "Down on the Farm 2" and coloured up Lulu and her pet cow with my Copic markers.  Patterned paper is from Kaisercraft Cock-a-doodle-doo which I also bought the same time as the stamp set.  I reached deep into my little red wagon for this card. 


And, as always, it's your turn.  Head on over to the Little Red Wagon blog, check out the inspiration from the other girlfriends and link up a farm animal project of your own.

Have a great day!!

Hippity Hop ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #439

Hey there.  Welcome to a new weekly challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess this week is Brenda and her theme is HIPPITY HOP ~ she wants to see something that hops on your project.

I went with the obvious for the next holiday that is upon us.  My card features all products from Lawn Fawn and while I was making it on the weekend at a crop my best friend said that the bunnies looked like they were chocolate ones.  They have much less calories on a card! :)


So it's your turn.  Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the amazing inspiration from the girlfriends and link up a hopping project of your own.  Can't wait to see all of the fun entries.

Have a great Wednesday!!

Who Rules the World? Girls!!! ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #438

Hello there.  Glad you could come by today for the start of a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess today is Jan and she's asking and answering the question  WHO RULES THE WORLD??? GIRLS!!! ~ meaning she wants to see the use of a girl or woman on your make.

Here's what I did. She may not be ruling the world in this picture but she sure is doing one of my favourite things ~ reading. This card features Betsy Booklover from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps coloured with my Copics.  Sentiment is also from the same set.  Patterned paper is My Favorite Things and all of the embellishments were found in my stash. 



And, once again, your turn.  Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out what the other girlfriends have created and link up a project featuring a girl or woman of your own.  Looking forward to checking them all out.

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great Wednesday.

Focus on Family ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #437

Hello there.  I am the hostess this week at Little Red Wagon and my challenge is "Focus on Family" ~ now this could be interpreted any way you like but I am looking for projects featuring families or a card specifically for a family member (eg.  Happy Birthday Mom).  And remember, your project doesn't have to be a card ~ a scrapbook layout would work great for family too ~ as well as any type of paper craft.

Here's what I did.  I used the Adventure Time from Kraftin' Kimmie and chose to see these little guys as brothers wishing their Mom a Happy Mom's Day.  Patterned paper is Simple Stories So Rad.  Wooden stars from my stash.


And now it's your turn.  Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the inspiration from the other girlfriends and link up a family project of your own.

Thanks for coming by.  Have a GREAT day!
