April Showers

Happy Wednesday everyone!  We have a new challenge up today, chosen by me, Brenda.  Since it's April, I thought it might be fun to work with an April showers theme.  For this we would obviously love to see any creation features rainbows, umbrellas, rain boots and of course rain.
Here's my card using a Bugaboo cutie -

If April showers are occurring in your area, what a perfect reason to sit down and create.  Even if it's not raining we would love to have you join in the fun!  I'll post my favs next week.

Challenge #387 Hippity Hoppity

Hi Everyone!
Sandy here, I want to welcome you and thank you for joining us this week for the challenge. And a big thank you to all of you who participated in last week's challenge, It's Clear to Me.  Kate picked a fun challenge. 
This week's challenge is Hippity Hoppity.  Your creation needs to include something that hops, like a grasshopper, kangaroo or a bunny.  Now I know it's close to Easter, but this does not need to be an Easter card.  Well, hop to it & join in on the fun, you can add your link below.  The girlfriends have been hopping this week too, check out each of their blogs.  This challenge will end next Tuesday, April - yes that's April 4th!  Here's my card ~
Thanks for joining us, I can't wait to see your creations!

Challenge #386 - Top Pick

Thanks to all who joined in last week's "It's Clear to Me" challenge - using transparency/acetate or a window on your projects. I learned a few interesting tips as went visiting blogs! I loved all the projects, but the one created by Katrina of ScrappyHorses especially caught my eye.

Katrina, please be sure to grab our Featured Button from the right side of the blog.

Challenge 386 - It's Clear to Me

Happy Wednesday! It's time for another challenge at Little Red Wagon and I'm thrilled to be this week's hostess. I've chosen the theme "It's clear to me" and I'm asking that you pull out your transparency or acetate - or include a window - for your creation.

For my card, I went with some transparency for the front. I have to admit that Mandy (Happy Scrappin') taught this technique in a card class years ago - so the idea is all hers! The plane image is adhered to the front of the clouds whereas the sentiment is inside. However, because of the transparency, the sentiment can still be seen.

Be sure to check out the Link Up to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own "clear" project below! We can't wait to see what you create!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #384- Plaids and Polka Dots

Hello again! This week our challenge is one that I think is really fun. All you need this week is some Plaid and Polka Dot papers. Plaids are really popular right now so finding a cute pattern isn't to hard, but for me I couldn't decide which colors to go with for the plaid! I have quite a few in my stash to choose from. I ended up going with the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Winter 6x6 pad. I also found this Whipper Snapper Designs stamp called Singing Trio that I have had forever! I love these little mice singing their best Happy Birthday to you!!!! Whipper Snapper Designs has some of the cutest stamps! Definitely one of my very most favorite stamp companies. The sentiment I used is  custom made by Pink In Ink.

Hope you can join us this week. Just click on the Inlinkz button below to add your project. I will post my top picks next Tuesday. Don't forget to grab your Little Red Wagon Badge on the right if you are picked. Also check out the Little Red Wagon Design team of Girlfriends blogs for some creative inspiration. These ladies are amazing!!

Have fun!

March Birthstone - Challenge 383

Welcome to the first little Red Wagon Challenge of March!  I happen to know that aquamarine is the birthstone for March.   That was reason enough to make it the focus of my challenge choice, but the fact it's one of my favorite colors was the real clincher.   We what to see creations where this gorgeous color is the main color in your project.

Here is what the natural gem looks like -

Here is the card I was inspired to make -

I can't wait to see what you do with this challenge. Please link up over at Little Red Wagon so I can take a peek. Speaking of peeking, be sure to stop by and see what the Girlfriends have created for you too!

Challenge # 382 - Down On The Farm!

Happy Wednesday, all!  This week the challenge is all about the farm.  So think farm animals, equipment (tractors, farm wagon etc.), crops, barns & other farm buildings, field many to ideas to pick from!

This is what I did.....

Maybe not a realistic farm situation, not too many sheep riding scooters out there, but it certainly fits the theme.

If you'd like more inspiration be sure to check out the wonderful projects the Girlfriends have created. Then, head back here and link up.

Can't wait to see what you create!

**We're aware that some of you are having trouble with the Linky and we're sorry for the inconvenience! If you cannot add your make, please pop it into the comments instead. We have contacted InLinkz and they have suggested that if you have a problem with the Linky to contact them directly.  I know that's not much of a solution but I'm afraid that's all they've given us.**

Challenge #381 ~ Season of Love

Good Morning!!  Heather here and I am your hostess for this week's challenge.  I have entitled it SEASON OF LOVE.  By that, for the challenge sake, I want to see your projects using a product from a company or companies that you love to use.  Show me your "go to" manufacturer of stamps, paper or whatever you use lots on your projects.

I used a stamp set from my all time favourite company of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  The other "go to" products are Tim Holtz distress inks and Spellbinders die cuts.

Check out what the other girlfriends have made and link up a project of your own using your favourite manufacturer.  Can't wait to see and I will be back on Tuesday evening with my top picks of the week.

Have a great day!!!

**Hello all.  Some of our crafty friends seem to be having a problem adding their makes to the Link.  I know in investigating I couldn't add a link using an older version of Internet Explorer.  So, for now, try a different browser and hopefully that'll work.  We are looking into the issue with InLinkz and we hope to have answers soon.**

Challenge #380 Top Picks

Challenge #380 Color Challenge

Hi Everyone!
Sandy here and I am so excited for this week's challenge! This week is a color challenge and you need to use red and/or pink and black in your creation.  I know Valentine's Day is coming up, but your project does not have to be related to love & hearts. You can see here that I made a birthday card.  I've been on a Stamping Bella kick here lately.  I messed up on her dress and to "fix it" I used black Wink of Stella.  Well, if you could see this card in real life it turned out rather nicely.  My little uptown girl is wearing that perfect "Little Black Dress!"
Take a peek at what the other girlfriends have made.  I know they would LOVE a comment and I would LOVE for you to join this challenge with us, just link up below.  You have until next Tuesday to play along.

Challenge #379 - Top Picks

Thanks so much to all who joined in last week's "tweet" challenge. Given that we're still in the thick of winter here, it was a delight to see all your bird creations as I wait for spring! There was such a wonderful variety of inspiration. Here are a few of my favourites.

Congratulations, ladies!!! Please be sure to grab your "Featured" button from the sidebar of our blog!

Challenge #379 - How Tweet it is!

Happy February! This week's challenge is a "tweet" one. We'd like to see your projects with birds on them. 

I made a set of cards, two for "bird-days" and one thank you card. The cards were fairly simple to put together with a bit of ink blending over a stencil, some stamping, colouring and die cutting. Each card contains a set of birds on a wire - perfect for this week's bird theme!

Please link up your bird-themed project below. I can't wait to see what you create and look forward to popping by your blogs for more details. You've got a week to join the fun!
