Challenge # 261 - Krafty!

Happy Wednesday, all! This week we've got an easy one for you. We want to see a project that uses kraft cardstock. You can use a little or a lot, as long as you've got a speck of kraft on your project, it's in!

I went the "a lot" route and this is what I did.....

If you'd like more inspiration be sure to check out the wonderful projects the Girlfriends have created. Then, head back here and add your project to Mister Linky.

Can't wait to see what you create!

Challenge #260 - Oh Baby!

Joanne stopping by with this week's challenge.  I am really switching things up this week by challenging you to create a baby-themed card!  Even though I have been loving all the Fall and Halloween designs we have been seeing, I now want to see some baby blues and pinks :)

Here is the card I created.

I decided to give a cascade card a try.  After I figured out how to create the card base (not easy at first!) I decided to go pink and create a card for a baby girl.

Now it is your turn.  Be sure to visit the DT Girlfriend's blogs for some great inspiration and then create your own baby-themed card.  Link it up below and then stop back next Tuesday for the Featured picks.  Yours might be one of them!  Have fun creating!

Challenge #259 ~ Spooky, Spooky!

Good morning!

Heather here as your hostess this week and it is my first time to host one of the challenges at Little Red Wagon.  Thanks for making me feel welcome as one of the girlfriends here.

My challenge this week is "SPOOKY!SPOOKY!" ~ create a Halloween project and link it up.

I have a confession.  I do not like Halloween at all.  Well, let me qualify that statement ~ I enjoy seeing all the little ones in cute costumes and all the fun that goes along with that but I do not like anything scary or graphic that has become connected to Halloween. So my spooky card is probably more cutesy but hey, it is Halloween.  I used an adorable Lucas image from a Kraftin' Kimmie set called "Hey There Punkin!", the only Halloween image that I own :)

Please join us this week and link up your project that is anything to do with Halloween.  And don't forget to visit the other girlfriends for more inspiration.  I will be back Tuesday with the top three faves.  Can't wait to see what you create.

Hugs, Heather

Challenge #257 In Stitches

Good morning!

Jayne here with this weeks challenge and I'm going with one of my trusty favourites this time around.......Stitching!

Real or faux, doesn't matter as long as there is some form of thread resembling pattern on your creation!

I absolutely love the look of 'real' sewing on a card or layout, but unfortunately I'm usually too lazy to fetch my sewing machine from the basement, or just a little mentally challenged when it comes to achieving a beautifully straight line!

So unfortunately for my sample, you'll have to make do with a fine line marker and a (not so) steady hand!

Looking back now, I think my 'faux stitching' turned more into 'faux doodling' with my uneven zig-zags, but I'm sure you get the general idea.

Hopefully you will have some success with the sewing machine, needle and thread, or marker and whip up some fabulously stitched creations......just link up below and we'll be sure to stop by.

Don't forget also to check out a little inspiration from the rest of the Girlfriends, then come back here Tuesday for our Featured Faves.

Have a great week,
