Little Red Wagon Challenge #310 ~ It's All About the Boys!

Hello there.  Welcome to another new challenge today at Little Red Wagon..   Our hostess is Carolyn and she wants it to be ALL ABOUT THE BOYS!  When I was a teenager I think my Mom thought I wanted everything all about the boys ~ first crush, first date, first kiss....LOL!! But I digress.....all about the boys in this case means masculine cards.  And it couldn't come at a better time for me as I have two special male birthdays in my life this week ~ my wonderful father and my amazing husband.  My card today was made for my Mom to give to her hubby.

I used an image and sentiment from the set Wild and Crazy Guys by Kraftin' Kimmie stamps.  Paper and enamel dots are Echo Park Jack and Jill boy collection.  The image is embossed with white to look like a chalk board.  Was a fun card to do.

So head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the inspiration by the other girlfriends and link up your masculine card.  They are always great to keep in your stash for just the moment when you need one.

PDE Linky Party Anything Goes ~ Love You to the Moon and Back

Hey there, my friends.  It is my turn this month to link up at PDE Linky Party and our theme is an easy, peasy one for sure.  No reason you can't all join in with any creative project you do this week whether it is paper crafting or something else.  We want to see all of your creative endeavors. 

This card I made for my grandson's 3rd birthday.  Whenever I am skyping with them I always end our session with air kisses and "LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK" so when I saw this stamp I just knew I had to have it.  I paired it with a stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps called "Great Adventures".  Paper and embellishments are from Simple Stories So Rad, perfect for boy cards.  

A close up of the image:

I am going to end today by sharing a picture of my three grandchildren.  I got to meet the new baby this week as he and his momma were visiting for a few days.  That was incredible.  I do miss them and do love them to the moon and back.

Thanks for dropping in.  Have a great weekend.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #308 ~ Anything for Fall Y'All!!!

Good Morning and welcome back for another new challenge at Little Red Wagon,  This week our hostess is Donna and her theme is "ANYTHING FOR FALL Y'ALL!" ~ pretty self explanatory if you ask me.

Fall is one of my favourite times of the year with the cooler temperatures, the bountiful harvest, Thanksgiving here in Canada in October and the changing of the leaves.  I enjoy driving in the country and taking so many pictures wearing a snugly sweater.  My card uses a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp called "Hey There Punkin!" .  All the paper and embellishments were in my stash so no names attached.

Glad you could drop by.  Don't forget to leave a comment and visit all of the other girlfriends for inspiration.  Then come on back and  link up your Fall project at Little Red Wagon.  Can't wait to see!!

As always, have a  wonderful Wednesday.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #306 ~ Digi Do!

Good Morning.  Wow, I can not believe it has been two weeks since I have last posted or written anything on my blog.  Life has thrown me some curve balls this last little while but I have been taking them like a pro baseball player and just kept plugging along.  Haven't had much time for creativity that's for sure.

Today begins a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess is Jan and she has entitled her challenge "DIGI DO" ~ in other words, she would like us to use a digi stamp on your card.  Now, it is true confession time....I thought I was going to have to skip this challenge altogether (or fib and just use a good old stamp) because I don't have a working printer.  But Jan to the rescue.  Some companies, such as the one I used, produce their stamps both in digis and rubber.  This is Neveah by Saturated Canary (in rubber on my card) but available HERE in digi.  She is so pretty that I had to make a delicate feminine card for sure.  Paper is Enchanted by Simple Stories. Flowers are Recollections and flourish die is Memory Box.

Thanks for dropping by today.  Don't forget to visit all of the other girlfriends and see what they have created for your inspiration and then come back to  Little Red Wagon  and link up your project using a digi this week.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #304 ~ A Colour Challenge

Good Morning.  Glad you could make it for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  I am the hostess this week and I have a colour challenge for you: PINK, TURQUOISE AND GREEN.  You can add neutrals or even a bit of another colour as long as these three are the focus.

I coloured up Mini Birthday Fhiona from Your Next Stamp with coloured pencils on a tag added to the card.  I used some Cuttlebug Embossing folders to give the colours some depth.  A few faux flowers and voila, a cute birthday card.

Please take some time to visit all of the other girlfriend's blogs to see what they have made and leave them some love.  Then head back over to Little Red Wagon and link up a project of your own using PINK, TURQUOISE AND GREEN.  I will be visiting you all this week.

Have a GREAT day!

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

For My Bestie ~PDE Linky Party

Good morning!  Glad you could take a few minutes to come visit me at my little corner of the crafting world.  Today starts a new challenge at PDE Linky Party.  Our theme for this week, as you can see, is BESTIES cards.

I used a stamp from Stamping Bella's Uptown Girls Collection called Uptown Girls Pattie and Dottie Friends Forever and coloured it up with my Copic markers.  The sentiment is included with the stamp. Patterned paper is from MME Breeze. Flowers and enamel dots are dollar store finds.  A great way to say Happy Birthday to your Bestie.

Won't you join us at PDE Linky Party this week and make up something for your bestie?  Can't wait to see.

Enjoy your Friday and your weekend.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #303 ~ Pick Up the Pieces

Good Morning!  Is it HOT where you live?  It sure has been hot here the last week or so.  We don't have air conditioning in the apartment so it has not been pleasant.  Glad we have fans and the apartment pool to use to cool off.  I hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of Summer vacation.

It is Wednesday and time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess this week is Carolyn and she wants us to PICK UP THE PIECES.  Let's see some paper piecing on your project.

I used an image from Your Next Stamp called Fairy Fhiona, coloured her with my Copic markers and paper pieced the dress.  Her wings are shining with Wink of Stella Clear.  Sentiment is Michaels $1.50 bin.The paper is Jillybean Soup Coconut Lime Soup. A Martha Stewart Butterfly punch and Your Next Stamp gumdrops in olive round out the embellishments.

A close up of the paper piecing:

Head on over to Little Red Wagon to check out what the other girlfriends have paper pieced and link up a project of your own.

Have a great day, my friends!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #302 ~ Vellum

Good day!  Welcome to a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Today we also have another new girlfriend with her first challenge.  It is Mandy's turn to hostess and she wants us to use VELLUM on our projects.

I was totally inspired from the girlfriend's who used vellum for their shaker cards last challenge that I created a vellum window containing snow The camera really did not pick it up so well but the snow falls on both the inside and outside of the window.  This is my first holiday card so one down....a lot to go!!  I used dies from Memory Box, Your Next Stamp and Marianne Designs to create this window and sentiments.  All the paper was from my stash along with the ribbon and bling.

I hope you can join us at Little Red Wagon this week for our VELLUM challenge.  Visit the page, and all the links for the other girlfriends, get inspired and link up a project of your own.  Can't wait to see what you create.
