Little Red Wagon Challenge #387- Hippity Hoppity

Hello again! This week Sandy chose Hippity Hoppity for the challenge. So she wants us to use a bunny or something that hops. I chose a Bunny from My Favorite Things and put him on a little paper Easter Basket that I made using my We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Punch Board. I was inspired by a die I saw for an Easter Basket. I thought the shape of the die looked a lot like the Gift Bags that I have made in the past using the Gift Bag Punch Board. So I played around with the Punch Board and came up with a fun little basket of my own!

I hope you will join us this week on the Little Red Wagon blog and Sandy will pick her favorites next Tuesday. I can't wait to see all the beautiful creative projects!

Have fun!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #385- Tag It!

Hello again! This week the Little Red Wagon challenge is called Tag It! I love tags and I hope you do too! So many possibilities! I took a cute little Stamping Bella stamp called Nice To See You Petunia. It has cute little chicks on the stamp too, but some maneuvering of the image just a little and she worked out great. She's just peeking around the corner of the tag!

So I hope to see you over on the Little Red Wagon Blog too. Lots of inspiration by all the Girlfriends. They really are so creative!

Have fun!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #376- Resolutions

This week our challenge is Resolutions. 2017 is off to a great start so far. I have to say, I don't usually make resolutions because I have a hard time sticking to them. However since this is our theme for our challenge I had to give it some serious thought. I decided my resolution for the new year will be this. I love random acts of kindness. The "just because I thought of you" is just the best! I would like to spread more kindness. I do think the more kindness you share with others, helps all of us. My quote says it all. "You will never regret being kind". I think this is true. So that's my resolution.

My project is a quote that I asked my daughter to make for me. She is awesome at hand lettering and she just got all the stuff to foil her beautiful scripts. So of course she was kind enough to make my quote for me. Then I made a beautiful little 7 1/2"x7 1/2" sign for my studio. I love teal and yellow together and the teal foiled script is so beautiful, the pictures don't really show the shinny too well, but oooooh it's so pretty!

Please join us this week and let's see what your resolutions are. Here is a link to get you to the
Little Red Wagon blog. Top picks will be posted next Tuesday.

Have fun!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #375- Something New!

This week's challenge is a goody! We all have that stash of new goodies we have been waiting to get a chance to use. Well this week is the perfect opportunity to go through all those new pretties and make a little something with them for this challenge. The theme is to use something new. It can be a stamp, an embossing folder, a new tool or technique. Let's see what you make and post it here on the Little Red Wagon blog. The top picks will be posted next Tuesday.

For my card I used a cute little Stamping Bella stamp called Happy Birthday Hoppy Poppy. I saw a technique a couple weeks ago on YouTube by Nina-Marie Trapani from Simon Says Stamp. She made a pop up surprise Valentine card. I just had to give it a try too! See, we all have things we already bought, or techniques we have wanted to try. Combine them and you end up with something fun!!

Happy New Year!
Donna
