Little Red Wagon Challenge #261 ~ Krafty!

Hello my friends.  Welcome to another Wednesday (man, the weeks are just flying by!) and another challenge at Little Red Wagon.  This week our hostess is Janice and she wants us to get Krafty ~ use kraft paper on your project and link it up HERE.

The holidays are sneaking up on us and I know I won't be ready so I chose another holiday project to make,  While I have been out browsing the holiday decorations in the stores the last couple of times I have noticed that decor with a rustic feel seems to be very in this year.  So using kraft to make a rustic tag was appropriate for this week's challenge.  Lots of distressed edges and twine gives it that rustic feel.  What did not show up that well is that I stamped a snowflake image on the tag with Versamark before I inked it with Tim Holtz distress ink to actually give the tag itself a bit of vintage. I stamped the image onto kraft card stock and coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits instead of my usual medium, Copic markers.

PDE Linky Easel Cards ~ Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Good Morning!!  Welcome to a new challenge at PDE Linky Party.  Our challenge is easel cards.  Visit the blog and see what all of my design team sisters have made and join us with an easel card of your own.  If you don't know how to create an easel card there are many tutorials out there on YouTube or Pinterest ~ just search for easel cards.  

I have made easel cards before and wanted a challenge for myself too so I began to search for a different kind of easel card and boy was I surprised at all the many kinds there are.  I finally made a variation of a couple of the cards I saw ~ an easel card with four tiny drawers to place treats in.  I photographed it from all angles so here are a few pictures of my fun project (which seriously took me WAY longer than I had anticipated ~ but I do like it if I say so myself....LOL!)

Card Stock and Patterned Paper ~ Recollections
Doily ~ Local dollar Store
Spellbinders Shapabilities Layered Poinsettia
Sentiment ~ Kraftin Kimmie Holiday Lulu and Libby
Close to my Heart Chocolate Ink
Ribbon ~ Offray
Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink
Bling, Brads ~ Recollections

So now I can use this as both a gift box and a card come Christmas time.  Any suggestions on what to put in those cute little drawers?  My hubby thought chocolates; I think some great pieces of jewelry.  
Shows how men and women think differently.

Come join us this week and link up your easel cards HERE.  Can't wait to see what you come up with.

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.
