O Daddy-Oh Hilites...

Judy here with the hilites this week of my Oh Daddy-Oh Challenge. There were lots of great cards offered up this week and very creative crafters out there. My hope was to help you all get some Father's Day cards created for that special Dad in your life.

Loved the old fashioned feel to the card Jessi created. Love that old wood grain paper from Cosmo Cricket. She actually created three cards but this was my fav...

I loved the cheekiness of Catherine's card. I am sure there are lots of Dad's out there that will partake of a cold one on Father's Day. I really enjoyed the colors in this card as well. That digistamp is a lot of fun!
The shirt and tie card from Ruthie is just perfect. Loving the buttons on the neck lapels So cute! And I love the pop up. Visit her blog to catch a glimpse of it!

Make sure you grab your featured button at the sidebar to place on your blog ladies. Great work! 
Stay tuned on Wednesday as we offer you another great challenge!

DIY Patterned Paper Featured Projects

Okay, so it looks like many of you rather just buy your patterned paper than make it (or I'll chalk it up to the busy long weekend in Canada), since we didn't have that many participants this past week.

Nevertheless, these DIY papers really caught my eye:

Kimberly--Honeycomb is all the rage right now, so I loved this background stamp

Fern--the stamped flourishes add such softness to this beautiful wall hanging

Sharon--I like that she created a floral vine climbing up her beautifully embossed wall

Feel free to add our Featured Button to your blog ladies!  Congrats!
Stay tuned for our next challenge out tomorrow!!

Challenge #133--DIY Patterned Paper

Hey there!  Tammy here today to bring you your new Little Red Wagon Challenge.
Although there is fabulous paper out on the market that we love to hoard buy, one of my favourite things to do is create my own patterned paper using my stamps.

So . . . my challenge to you is a Do-It-Yourself challenge:
Design your own patterned paper (stamped, painted, computer generated, . . .) and use it as a key feature on your card.

Here's what I came up with:
 I stamped the image (with dark purple ink) repeatedly to fill up my card base; I then filled in the leaves quickly with a light green Copic.

Can't wait to see what patterned design you come up with!
For some more inspiration, be sure to check out what the other LRW girlfriends created!

Challenge #131 - Stitch It Up!

Happy Wednesday! It's Joanne here and it is my turn to issue the challenge this week. I want to see everyone 'stitch it up' on their layouts, cards or projects using machine or hand stitching.

I created a card as inspiration.

I designed my card background and then I did some simple machine stitching around the edge. I love using my sewing machine to add an outline to my cards. I also added a little zig-zag stitch - just for fun!

I would love to have you play along with my challenge and share your creation with us! Just link up your project below :)
