Little Red Wagon Challenge #265 ~ Wishy Washi

Good Wednesday Morning, my friends.  Once again, it is that time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon but before we get into that I have a bit of business to take care of.

Little Red Wagon is having a design team call and if you are interested you can find all of the details HERE as to the requirements, and how to apply.  We are looking forward to adding a few members to the group of incredible ladies we already have.

Now, on to the challenge.  It is my turn to hostess this week.  As many of you know, I joined this team late in the year and "inherited" my themes from a former DT member.  And since it was late in the year I did not want to change them in case some team members had worked ahead on their challenges.  My theme for this week is WISHY WASHI!!~ use washi tape on your project.  

This was not a hard challenge for me to find supplies for as I had jumped on that washi tape bandwagon and had a number of rolls that I had not used.  I was able to make it a seasonal card as well.  But I am going to confess here that I did tear up as I put this sentiment on.  It will be the first time in 25 years that I will not see in person my son and now, his family, over the Christmas season (may have not always have been on Christmas day).  I know many, many of you have had this for years and my heart truly feels for you as it has never before.  Okay, enough of this chat chat before I get you all choked up.....I used my washi tape as banners and background for the hearts that go along with the outside sentiment and then added them to the inside as well.


Card Stock ~ Recollections
Washi Tape ~ Recollections (from last year's Christmas collection)

Thanks for dropping by today.  I am looking forward to you joining us this week at Little Red Wagon and seeing all of the many ways that you use your washi tape on your projects.

Take care and until next time, keep crafting.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:


  1. Your card is just beautiful, Heather! I love the Christmas themed washi tape and the sentiment behind your card. My heart feels for you with your son not being home for Christmas. Maybe Skype or Facetime? :)
    Joanne xo

    1. Yes, Joanne, we will definitely be doing Skype so I can see my son, daughter-in-law and grandkids on Christmas.

  2. Heather, this is wonderful card. I love all the different washi tapes you used. Great holiday card. Sorry that your son won't be home at Christmas. Sending big hugs. I am lucky to have my family close by, but my in-laws are on the east coast so we only see them once or twice a year.

  3. Aw, Heather. I hope you'll be able to get together with your son and family soon.

    Great card! I really like that you added score lines.

  4. Beautiful card!! Sending you hugs and hoping that you will be able to connect with your son and his family in another way on Christmas.


Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. I love to hear from you, my friends.
