Little Red Wagon Challenge #269 ~ Anything CHRISTMAS!!!!

Hello there.

Glad you could drop by once again on a Wednesday, a new challenge day at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess this week is Carolyn and her challenge is "ANYTHING CHRISTMAS!"

Wow, how super easy is that as we all put the last minute touches on things we want to do for Christmas.  I am off today from my very busy retail job and am going to put the last minute touches on a bit more shopping and then I am done.

For my Christmas project, I made two of these super cute treat/gift card holder combination that I got the instructions for HERE.  As I show them to you they are winging their way to British Columbia and are hopefully arriving before Christmas.  They were fun to make and fill.




RECIPE:
Card Stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ Echo Park Winter Park
~ MME Merry
Sentiments ~ Michaels $1.50 Bin
Versamark Ink
Stampendous White Embossing Powder
Ribbon ~ Use It Up Inventory

Thanks for coming by.  Don't forget to visit the other girlfriends and see what they have made and then link up your latest project at Little Red Wagon for CHRISTMAS!!  

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #267 ~ So Flaky!!

Welcome to another Wednesday which brings a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Can you believe it is only two weeks until Christmas Eve?  I am sure most of you are so busy and are wondering how you will be able to fit it all in.  Our hostess for this week is JanR and her challenge is SO FLAKY! ~ use a snowflake (or two or a few) on your project.  This is an easy one to incorporate into some last minute Christmas cards or tags since snow usually is associated with Christmas too.  So join us for a challenge and get something off of your list done at the same time. :)

I made a very non-traditional snowflake card.  I do know that snow does not come in the lime green, fuchsia pink or baby blue variety but they sure look good on a card :)  And instead of a Christmas card this is just a cute little Winter card that can be used for lots of reasons.





RECIPE:
Card Stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ Three Bugs in a Rug
Hampton Arts Snowflake Stamp and Die Set
Versamark Ink
Stampendous White Embossing Powder
Inside Sentiment ~ Michaels $1.50 Bin
Twine ~ Maya Arts
Ribbon, Button ~ Use It Up Inventory

Come participate with us this week at Little Red Wagon and show us your snow.  We don't have any outside here yet but one can only hope a bit shows up for Christmas.  I am looking forward to seeing what you create.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #266 ~ Things With Wings

Good Morning, my friends.  I think each week is flying by faster and faster.  It does not help that this was the busiest week of the year in the retail business so it flew by in a blur of shoppers.

 Anyhow.....it is Wednesday again....and that means time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  This week our hostess is Joanne with her challenge entitled THINGS WITH WINGS.  Show us your creations containing something with wings.

Lots of things have wings....birds, butterflies, some insects, airplanes....but at this time of year I think of wings on angels.  As I looked through my stamps I found this little cutie from Kraftin' Kimmie and could not help but colour them up in traditional colours with lots of layers and embellishments alike.
