Challenge # 533 - Books!

Isn't it amazing how fast Wednesday's roll around?
I'm (Doni) the hostess for Challenge #533 this week. 

January is a good time to curl up with a good book, so this week
 I'd like to see anything connected with books or reading. 
You could a sentiment with lots of words, or book pages as a background. 
I can't read without my glasses, so glasses on your card would work!
Here's  what I made:
 I used the really cute stamp set called "Our Story" from My Favorite Things.

I made this card and matching bookmark for my cousin who loves to read.
I tried talking her into trying a e-reader ( I Love my Kindle!), however 
she says that she just likes the feel of turning the pages in a "real" book!
Here's a quick tip:
When you're trying to figure out what colors to use here's what I do.
Look through your mountains of patterned paper and choose one you like.
Use  the colors in the print and they'll be sure to look good together!

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

Challenge # 532 - After Christmas is before Christmas

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 play on words:

" After Christmas if before Christmas ! "

Christmas always comes suddenly and in the end there are not enough greeting cards. That's why I make Christmas cards all year round. I think many of you do the same, so I'm looking forward to your creations. Not just cards, everything about Christmas.

I have reused something on mys card. If you want to know what, hop over to my blog.

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.

Challenge #531 - Have Your Cake and Eat It Too

Happy Wednesday! I'm both thrilled and embarrassed to be this week's hostess at Little Red Wagon. I'm thrilled because it's my turn to host which is always fun. And I'm embarrassed because it's my challenge and I messed up! I had chosen the theme "Have Your Cake and Eat It Too" meaning that I'd like to see any sort of baked goods on your projects - from cakes to cupcakes to muffins, pies and cookies. If it's been in the oven, it's good to go! My last challenge of 2019 was "Snow Much Fun" and even though I created a project for that challenge, I thought it was this week's theme. Ugh! Anyway, I've got a cake box project from January 2012 that I'll share as I simply don't have time to create something new for this week. I'm so sorry!

Here's the project I did create for this week. One of the "ingredients" IS wonderful. And I suppose if his carrot nose was baked in the oven, I could sneak in - but that really is a stretch!!

Please link up your own baked goods projects below. I love sugary treats so am especially excited to see what you create!

Challenge #529 - Use Your NBUS

Happy New Year to everyone!  We are ringing in 2020 with a challenge to get your creativity started or to keep it going strong.  It's Brenda and I'm doing the MC duties this week.  I've been doing a major purge of my studio and found so many wonderful things I'd forgotten I even had.  I would love to see you look for and use your NBUS (Never Been Used Schtuff) to create.  I would also really like to know what NBUS you used.

I've been working on a major purge of my studio and found many a couple NBUS.  To make these tags I used a Stampin' Up! set I got a couple years ago and the mulberry paper is probably 20 years old with the price tag still on it.  The sentiments are stickers from a card kit that I have probably had at least 2 years. -


OK, it's over to you now.  I can't wait to see what you create.  Remember, we're not only about cards, we would love to see your other arty projects too!  Be sure to check out the creations the Girlfriends have made, you are sure to be inspired.
