Little Red Wagon Challenge #377 ~ Thank You

Good Wednesday morning.  It's time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess is Donna and her theme is THANK YOU.  Pretty self explanatory and who doesn't need this kind of card in your stash?

My supplies were Lawn Fawn "Thanks" die, Perfectly Plaid Winter paper pad and Snow Cool stamp set.  I am trying something and changing up my cards to more plain and simple designs.

Please join the other girlfriends and I at the Little Red Wagon blog, see the other creations for more inspiration and link up a thank you project of your own.

Thanks for coming by.  Have a tremendous day!

Valentine's Fun ~ PDE Linky Party All Cards

I am back on track with design team commitments and today is a new challenge at PDE Linky Party. Below is the monthly schedule of the challenges for you to see.  There have been a few minor changes.

Since today is the second Friday our challenge/theme is Cards or Project Life Cards.  Took on the Project Life challenge side of this and made some filler cards for a Valentine's Day spread. These were all made with scraps of paper from Doodle Bug Lovebugs, stamps from Michaels $1.50 bin and embellishments from my stash.  A great way to use things up.

So why not join us at PDE Linky Party with a card or pocket scrapbook filler card of your own this week.  Check out all of the amazing projects from my design team sisters as well.  

Glad you dropped by.  Have a FABULOUS FRIDAY and a WICKED WEEKEND (just trying to keep up the alliteration there).

Little Red Wagon Challenge #376 ~ Resolutions

Hello all!  Time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon; our hostess is Brenda and her theme is RESOLUTIONS.  Now we have had Hello 2017, Something New and now RESOLUTIONS.  I see a coalition of the last few weeks with the start of the year :) Brenda wants to see our projects based on our new year's resolutions.  For example, if one of your resolutions is to exercise more, you make a project based on exercising.

I am not a real resolution kind of gal as I find they don't stick but I do have some goals I have set for myself in 2017.  One of them is to stay in touch with friends and send out a card to someone at least once a month.  I have a very good friend going through a hard time and this is on its way to her.

I wanted to try something different and this card has no colouring (gasp!) on it.  I searched Pinterest for some inspiration and combined a few different ideas to get to this.  The washi tape is what I received from my hubby for Christmas made by Recollections.  All other supplies were in my scraps.  What do you think of the clean and simple look of this card?

Come on over to Little Red Wagon to see the inspiration from the other girlfriends and then link up a project of your own based on your goals or resolutions for this year.

Thanks for coming by.  Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY!!!!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #375 ~ Something New!!!

Hello all!!  Welcome back to the first new challenge for 2017 at Little Red Wagon.  This post is up very late in the day instead of in the morning as I fell asleep so early last night it didn't happen.  I hope it is not foreshadowing of things to come this year.  Gotta get on top of design team commitments and posts scheduled :) Anyhow, Jan is our hostess this week and her theme is SOMETHING NEW! She has a very wide interpretation of this ~ it could be a new theme (new baby, new home) or a new technique for you to try or something new in your stash that you can use (Christmas gift or something you haven't used before).

I received scrapbooking/stamping goodies for Christmas from my wonderful hubby for the first time this year. He usually lets me do the purchasing as he always says he doesn't know what to get.  I did specifically ask for a MISTI (Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented) But he added a few things of his own. Love my new supplies.

So I used my MISTI to stamp a new image from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps "Got Snow?" that I won before the holidays but had no time to play with.  I got a crisp image the first time even with all of the details.  So happy for that new tool.  I coloured him up with my Copics and made him into a filler card for my project life album.  Then I decided I needed some matching smaller filler cards as well.  These are going with pictures of my grandchildren playing in the snow my wonderful daughter-in-law sent to me.  

Why not head on over to Little Red Wagon and link up a project of your own using something new?  Check out what all of the other girlfriends have made for inspiration and leave us some love.  We all appreciate your comments.

Thanks for dropping by and listening to my ramblings.  Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY!!!

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.

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.
