Challenge # 170 - Jars!

Happy Wednesday!

 It's Rosanne here with this week's challenge and I don't know about you but I'm totally inspired by all the different ways people use jars, just search on Pinterest and you'll find hundreds.

 So I thought why not have a Little Red Wagon challenge featuring jars. It can be a diecut, stamp, patterned paper or even a decorated glass jar.

 I dug through my wagon and created a jar filled with buttons to place on my card:

So dig through your wagons and link up your creation below!

Get into Shape Challenge

The new year always comes with lots of resolutions to "get into shape".  I know am always talking about the need to exercise more--but that just cuts into crafting time, doesn't it? ;)

So this week, I'm challenging you to get into shape in your crafting space by use a shape repeatedly (that's right--lots of reps).

 Here's what I came up with:
It's not a typical shape, but I did use it repeatedly to create the pattern.  Be sure to check out what the other girls on the DT created, and then link up your project below.

Challenge #166 - Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone!  Our first challenge of 2013 is to create a New Year's card.

For my inspiration card, I went fairly clean and simple.  I used a printable image and combined it with some matching papers.

I then added a bit of ribbon and a button with twine.

Why not join us in welcoming the new year by making a card to celebrate 2013!  Just link up your creation below - we would love to see what you create :)
