Challenge # 562 - Goodbye

 Hi there, it´s Wednesday and time for a brand new Challenge at Little Red Wagon. It's me, Imke - I am your hostess this week and I hope you like my Challenge for you this week:

" Goodbye "

That can mean a lot: Goodbye to a job, to neighbors and friends because of moving, on vacation and of course death .... I'm curious which topic you use.

This card was sent to a craft friend who lost her father. I really like it when there is some color involved. In Germany, the sympathy cards are mostly black and white. It's very traditional but too gloomy for me personally.  I always say: "The occasion is sad enough, it can be a bit colored".


Now it's your turn, please link up your project below ! I'm looking forward to seeing your projects  and visiting you on your blogs.

Also don´t forget to visit my team mates and looking at their wonderful creations.


You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Challenge #561 - Happy Days

Welcome to Wednesday and our first challenge of August. Time is just flying by and we do hope that you are all keeping safe and well. Some people are finding lockdown a bit more difficult than others and now is the perfect time to share some smiles. This week's challenge, Happy Days, is all about making somebody smile with your creation - whether it's a card with humour or a handmade gift to spread joy. 


I decided to go with a bit of humour for my card and used some My Favorite Things products. Hopefully, the recipient - whoever they turn out to be - enjoys the card and gets a smile without hiding all their cupcakes from me.

Please look through the link list below to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then make something to make somebody smile!

Challenge #560 - Give Us Your Background!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I hope this finds you all well and raring to join in our challenge this week.  We would like for you to GIVE US YOUR BACKGROUND.  I'm not talking genealogy here, I'm talking alcohol inks, distress oxide ink, paper piecing, smooshing stenciling, gelli pad, collage...there are so many ways to make your own background paper for your creation.

Here's mine -


The background was one that was in my stash.  I think the pink/red is probably distress oxide ink smooshed on to water color paper.  It drives me crazy after you foil something and have all that lovely color left, so I added some transfer gel and some gold leftover foil and this is what I got.

A little bit more background here (not the kind we are asking for in the challenge)...I want to dedicate this card to the Girlfriends, who are absolutely blessings.  I had a bunch of stuff going on last week and they were right there to give moral support and offer help.  They are the BEST!

We would love for you to join us this week.  I'm am looking forward to seeing all the different ways you create your backgrounds.  For more ideas, give the Girlfriends a visit and leave them a little love.

Challenge # 559 - Spots or Stripes!

Happy Wednesday, all! This week the challenge is "Spots and/or Stripes" which means that we would like to see projects that have either polka dots, spots, tittles, lines, plaids stripes....any or all of the above! And remember, we're not just about cards....you could make a bookmark, layout, altered item, tag - any papercraft goes!

This is what I did.....


As you can see, I've got liney patterned paper and a pretty floral wreath with a plethora of dots around it.

If you want more inspiration be sure to check out what the Girlfriends have made. Then head on back here and link up your project.

Can't wait to see what you create!
