Little Red Wagon Challenge #374 ~ Hello 2017

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  I am the hostess this week and my challenge is entitled HELLO 2017 ~ I want to see your take on New Year's on your projects.

Mine is very traditional using an image and sentiment from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps called "Let's Celebrate!" (On a side note for those of my DT girlfriends who wanted some of my stamps ~ Kraftin' Kimmie is having her Boxing Week sale and everything is on sale in the shop!!) Colours are also traditional classic and formal for New Year's.  All supplies were from my scraps.

Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out what the other girlfriends have made for my challenge and join us with a New Year's themed project of your own.  I will be back on Tuesday with my top picks.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!!!!

Little Red Wagon challenge #373 ~ Follow That Star!

Hello once again.  Well it is only 4 days until Christmas.  Time has sure flown in the last couple months.  Today begins a new challenge at Little Red Wagon and our hostess is Sandy with the theme FOLLOW THAT STAR.

When I heard the theme for this week I couldn't help but think of the song with the same name Follow That Star by one of my favourite contemporary Christian artists Paul Baloche.  Here's a link to the song if you want to give it a listen:

My card is very simple and uses one of my new favourite sets by Kraftin' Kimmie called Christmas Blessings.  The star is a tiny addition to the card :) A stitched rectangle die cut, a few Copic markers and a bit of twine round out this cute card.

Why not join us with a star themed project of your own this week at Little Red Wagon?

Thanks for dropping by.  I am not sure if I will have another post or not before Sunday so I want to wish all of my followers and friends a very MERRY CHRISTMAS.  May you have a blessed time with ones you love near and far.

Hello.  Once again we start a new challenge at

A simple little tag to add to a gift using just patterned paper, ink and a couple of embellishments.  Easy, peasy and quick to create when you need one in a hurry.

Thanks for dropping by.  Eight more shopping days just in case you are counting  :)  Have a good day and weekend. I actually am off this weekend and having company for supper Saturday.  Looking so forward to it.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #372 ~ Christmas Carols or Songs

Good morning.  Tick tock goes the clock and many of us are running out of time to get everything on our list done.  Today begins a new challenge at Little Red Wagon and our hostess is the lovely Miss Kate and she wants to see your makes using the words of a Christmas carol or song.  I have to admit that because of my crazy work schedule among other things I ran out of time to make a new project for this challenge so one of the cards from the card class I took in November before the craziness will have to do as it fits the bill.

Christmas songs play in my house since the middle of September sometimes as I get ready to do craft shows and fairs for the holidays.  I so enjoy the traditional Christmas carols and my favourite is Away in A Manager as I have many fond memories of it from my childhood.  My card uses the stamp set "Heavenly Voices" from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps (which seems to be sold out at the moment as there is no link to it).  All supplies were provided in class.

Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the inspiration from the other girlfriends and link up a make of your own using the line of a Christmas carol or song.  

Thanks for dropping by. In the hustle and bustle of this busy season remember to take a moment and reflect on why we celebrate Christmas in the first place.

Wonderful Winter Wishes ~ PDE Linky Party All Cards

Hello there.  Welcome to a new day and a new challenge at 

where our theme this week is ALL CARDS.

My card is one I made at a card class I attended a few weeks ago but thought it was just too cute not to share.  It uses the stamp set Beary Big Hugs from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps for both of the sentiments and the image.  All the supplies were provided so sources are unknown. :)


Can you believe it is only 2 weeks until Christmas???  Have you done all you need to do??? LOL!!! I try to get everything done early as I work in retail and Christmas time is horrible and busy.  Anyhow, have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend and think of me as I deal with cranky people all day long. :)

Little Red Wagon Challenge #371 ~ Santa's Coming to Town!

Good morning (or afternoon or evening...depending on when you are reading this or what time zone you are in) my crafty peeps and others who visit.  Today starts a new challenge at Little Red Wagon and our hostess is Brenda.  Her theme is Santa's Coming to Town and she wants to see the big guy or his elves on your projects.  Perfect for the season I'd say.

My elf comes to you courtesy of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and he is from the set Treat YoursELF.  He is coloured up with my Copic markers and I have added a bit of sparkle with my Wink of Stella Clear to the ornament he is swinging from. Patterned paper is Echo Park I Love Winter.

Why not join us at Little Red Wagon this week and link up a Santa or elf project of your own.  Don't forget to check out the amazing inspiration for the other girlfriends as well.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps ~ Wonderful Wednesday Anything Goes
Deep Ocean Challenge #143 ~ Santa is Coming to Town

Birthday Unicorns ~ PDE Linky Party Anything Goes

Hi there.  Glad you could drop by today.  We are at the start of a new ANYTHING GOES WEEK at

The project I have for you today I made for my granddaughter's 3rd birthday this week.  We skyped while she opened it and her present as she lives a few thousand miles from me.  I am glad we can at least do that :)  The card uses the stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie called Unicorns and Rainbows.  They are coloured up with my Copics and placed on a shaker card.  Inside sentiment is what I always tell the kids as we sign off so it means a lot to me.


Why not join myself and my other creative design team members and link up at PDE Linky Party this week.

I am going to end today with a picture of the birthday girl.  Happy birthday Katie-boo.  Grandma loves you to the moon and back. xoxo

(taken on my last trip out there in April ~ she has grown so 
much even since then)
