Little Red Wagon Challenge #260 ~ Oh Baby!

Good Morning and happy Wednesday. Welcome to another fun challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess this week is Joanne and she is changing things up a bit from all the Autumn and Halloween projects that we have been seeing.  Her challenge is ~ OH BABY! ~ create a baby project and link it up HERE.

This challenge was perfect timing for me as my hubby and I welcomed a new great niece to our family this week.  She arrived on Monday and is a total cutie pie.  I can not wait to get some cuddles from baby Lily.  This card is for her.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #259 ~ Spooky! Spooky!!

Happy Wednesday and welcome to my first challenge as hostess at Little Red Wagon.  The theme of my challenge is "SPOOKY! SPOOKY!!" ~ create anything Halloween themed and link it up HERE.

Now, as I am sure you have heard me mention once or twice if you have been following me for a while, I am not much of a Halloween fan.  I do enjoy seeing the little ones dressed up in costumes and the fun that goes along with that but I do not enjoy the scary and graphic content that is now associated with Halloween.  So my card today is much more cutesy than spooky and it uses the only Halloween image that I own.  :)

Little Red Wagon Challenge #258 ~ Give Thanks

Good Wednesday morning.  Welcome to another challenge at Little Red Wagon.  This week our hostess is Tracy and her challenge is GIVE THANKS.  This is a perfect challenge for us in Canada as we begin to prepare for Thanksgiving this weekend.  So make any kind of project with the theme of thanks and share with us HERE.

Before I show you my  card, let me preface it by saying that it is NOT the card I pictured in my head and when you wait until the last minute to get your project done, there is no time to fix it or find the supplies you really, I think my card looks more like a fall project than one of thanks.  I searched my entire craft room for my "HAPPY THANKSGIVING" sentiment and still have not found it.  I also wanted to try something different and not colour up an image but not sure I like the punch art that it the finished product. But anyhow, here it is:


A look at the dimension (There are two layers of pop dots.):

Card Stock ~ Recollections
Leaf Punch ~ Creative Memories
Darice Embossing Folder ~ Wood Grain
Your Next Stamp Fishtail/Banner Die Set
Sentiment ~ CARDZ TV Encouraging Thoughts
Time Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Leaves ~ Creatology Harvest
Twine ~ My Favorite Things

Thanks for coming by today.  Please join us at Little Red Wagon this week with projects of your own for GIVING THANKS.  And while you are there check out the rest of the girlfriends for more inspiration.  Tracy will be announcing the winners next Tuesday evening.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.
