Little Red Wagon Challenge #269 ~ Birthday

WOW! ~ Christmas Eve already and no matter what you are doing, whether it is last minute shopping, baking or getting the house ready for company I pray you are having a blessed day.

Today starts a new challenge at Little Red Wagon and our hostess is  Jan.  Her challenge is HAPPY BIRTHDAY ~ a nice change from all of our Christmas crafts (although I do love them!) We can all use birthday cards in our stash for when that unexpected birthday pops up, right?

My card uses a cute image from Your Next Stamp and also uses some of my fave colours of pinks and teals.

Copic Xpress It Card Stock
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Image and Sentiments ~ Your Next Stamp Martini Birds
Copic Markers
Card Stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ Authentique Seasons:Spring
Happy Birthday Sentiment ~ My Pink Stamper Everyday Occasions
Tim Holtz Teay Dye Distress Ink
Glossy Accents
Flower, Twine, Button, Pearls ~ all from my (too) immense stash

So, on a totally different, and personal note, I knew that many of the ladies on the Little Red Wagon team were from my area but had only met one a few times (Tracy).  On Saturday I was able to make that two.  I ran into Joanne at my job and recognized her from the pictures I had seen of her.  I introduced myself and talked for a few minutes although it was a busy place.  It is so nice to put a face to a name and I do know I will see her again and hopefully meet another member of the team at the same time as well.  

Thanks for stopping in today.  Enjoy this special time of the year and join us this week at Little Red Wagon for our HAPPY BIRTHDAY challenge.

  1. Your card is delightful, Heather! It is my favorite color combination and the image is adorable! It was such a pleasure to meet you the other day. I, too, am happy to be able to put a face with your name. Merry Christmas to you!
