LRW - Happy New Year

I can't believe it's the last Little Red Wagon challenge for 2015!!  I just love how each challenge keeps me inspired and creative.  Thank you to my LRW girlfriends for coming up with such great ideas too.

This week Donna is our hostess and she wants to see a New Years card.  I must admit, I did have another card already made for this challenge, but I changed my mind and whipped up this one instead.

I used my Copic markers and also did a little paper piecing too.

I am wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!  I hope 2016 brings you lots of joy.  Don't forget to play along and link up over on the Little Red Wagon blog.

I Was A Favourite Pick!!

What a suprise I had when I visited my blog today!!  I received this lovely message:

I just LOVE your card! I wanted to let you know that I’ve chosen your creation as one of my Favorite Picks and linked back to your blog! Thanks so much for sharing your talent. Kathy at

I was confused at first because I didn't enter my card in any other challenges so I wasn't sure how I could be selected as a 'favourite pick'.

After visiting her blog I realized that she just randomly picks her favourites from things she sees on blogs etc.  WOW!!  How did I get selected with all the great Christmas cards out there and she picks mine as one of her favourites (there were many others selected too).

What an honour!  Thank you Kathy!!

LRW - Sparkle & Shine

Welcome!!  It is time for another challenge for Little Red Wagon and Brenda is our hostess.  She wants to see sparkle and shine!!  I chose to use foil on my project but you can use anything that sparkles or shines.

I dug through my wagon and pulled out a holly die and with some double-sided adhesive paper, I whipped up this gorgeous element for my card.

I am excited to see what the other girlfriends have created.  If you play along, be sure to link up over on the Little Red Wagon blog.

LRW - Let's Get Sketchy

Time for another challenge on the Little Red Wagon blog. This week Jan wants us to follow a sketch!!  I haven't used a sketch in a very long time.

Here is the sketch that she provided:

Here is the card that I designed!!  I seem to have a thing with snowmen lately :)

I also love these little tags that I can make to add my sentiment.  This little punch was a good investment.

My snowman is mounted on an action Wobble so it moves when you give it a shake. I didn't take the time to make a video, but I did take an action photo.  

Please join in the fun over on the Little Red Wagon blog.  Be sure to link up your creation too.

I have also entered my card in the following challenges:

4 Crafty Chicks - Snowman or Snowmen
Cupcake Inspirations - Colour/Photo Challenge

LRW - Snow Much Fun!!

Time for another challenge over on the Little Red Wagon blog!  Ususally by now we have had a few snowfalls, but this year it's not happening.  We are experiencing very mild temperatures with no snow in sight.

Our challenge this week is 'snow much fun', so we are going to make our own white stuff!!  I decided to actually build a snowman.  I used this adorable marquee from Heidi Swapp and have totally fallen in love with him.

Here is what he looks like when he is lit up (but I hadn't added the holly to his hat yet).  Isn't he handsome?

I can't wait to see what the other girlfriends have created.  Be sure to share your creations over on the Little Red Wagon blog.  Have fun!!!
