Under the Sun ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #447

Good morning.  I hope everyone is ready to play along at  Little Red Wagon this week because I am the hostess and want to see your projects featuring a sun.  Nice warm sunny weather is what I am hoping we can achieve if we all use suns :)

This sun scene stamp is a free digi from a few years ago.  I coloured it up to look like a sunrise with Copics.  Sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps called  Enduring Love.  Patterned paper is Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow. 



Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the amazing inspiration from the other girlfriends and then link up a sun project of your own.  Can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks for dropping by.  See you again soon!

Water Worlds ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #446

Hello all. Today starts a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Imke is our hostess and her challenge is WATER WORLDS  ~animals under or in the water.  So fish, frogs, ducks, etc.

Now the key word in her challenge is animals but somehow I missed that when I wrote the challenge down in my to do list. I had written in or under water. I was thinking swimming, snorkeling, puddles, etc.  So here is what I did (and have had no time to create something else);

Stamp set is a retired rubber set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps called Rainy Day Fun.  Paper is from Echo Park Imagine That.  Embellishments are Your Next Stamp Gumdrops.


Your turn...head on over to Little Red Wagon and check out the inspiration from the other girlfriends and link up an ANIMAL that lives in or under the water (I know you won't miss that word).

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope to see you soon.

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.
