Challenge # 562 - Goodbye

 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 Challenge for you this week:

" Goodbye "

That can mean a lot: Goodbye to a job, to neighbors and friends because of moving, on vacation and of course death .... I'm curious which topic you use.

This card was sent to a craft friend who lost her father. I really like it when there is some color involved. In Germany, the sympathy cards are mostly black and white. It's very traditional but too gloomy for me personally.  I always say: "The occasion is sad enough, it can be a bit colored".


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.


You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Challenge #561 - Happy Days

Welcome to Wednesday and our first challenge of August. Time is just flying by and we do hope that you are all keeping safe and well. Some people are finding lockdown a bit more difficult than others and now is the perfect time to share some smiles. This week's challenge, Happy Days, is all about making somebody smile with your creation - whether it's a card with humour or a handmade gift to spread joy. 


I decided to go with a bit of humour for my card and used some My Favorite Things products. Hopefully, the recipient - whoever they turn out to be - enjoys the card and gets a smile without hiding all their cupcakes from me.

Please look through the link list below to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then make something to make somebody smile!

Featured Background Projects

I have to tell you, I really enjoyed looking at all your beautiful creations this week.  I'm so happy so many of you decided to join us!  I was going to list all the techniques that were used, but there were so many I stopped keeping track at 17 different ways to create a background.  Here are a few of my favorites -




Congratulations!  We would love for you to grab the "Featured" badge from the sidebar for your blog.

Challenge #560 - Give Us Your Background!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I hope this finds you all well and raring to join in our challenge this week.  We would like for you to GIVE US YOUR BACKGROUND.  I'm not talking genealogy here, I'm talking alcohol inks, distress oxide ink, paper piecing, smooshing stenciling, gelli pad, collage...there are so many ways to make your own background paper for your creation.

Here's mine -


The background was one that was in my stash.  I think the pink/red is probably distress oxide ink smooshed on to water color paper.  It drives me crazy after you foil something and have all that lovely color left, so I added some transfer gel and some gold leftover foil and this is what I got.

A little bit more background here (not the kind we are asking for in the challenge)...I want to dedicate this card to the Girlfriends, who are absolutely blessings.  I had a bunch of stuff going on last week and they were right there to give moral support and offer help.  They are the BEST!

We would love for you to join us this week.  I'm am looking forward to seeing all the different ways you create your backgrounds.  For more ideas, give the Girlfriends a visit and leave them a little love.

Challenge # 558 - Fantasy

It's hard to believe that we're half way through the month of July already.
But here we are and it's my turn to host the challenge this week.
I chose the theme "FANTASY"
so bring on your Dragons, Fairies, Mermaids, Gnomes ...
or in my case...Unicorns!
But most of all, have some FUN!


It's hard to see in the photo, but all the images are loaded with glitter...
because glitter is magical!
I used the stamp set from Mama Elephant.

Challenge #556 - Summertime Fun

Happy Canada Day!! We hope that all our Canadian friends are keeping well and have an amazing day today! And happy Fourth of July in a few days to our American friends! And happy week to everybody, wherever you are!

I'm happy to be hosting this week and I've chosen the theme Summertime Fun. I'd like to see projects that celebrate summer in any way, shape or form! From glasses of lemonade to lazy days at the beach, how do you have fun in the summer?


I had fun creating my card although did procrastinate a bit as I was having too much fun enjoying the great outdoors this week. We've had some lovely weather! As I love water and the beach, I decided to create a little beach scene. There's nothing like relaxing in a lounger with a good book next to the sea!

Please join our challenge by creating a project and linking below. We can't wait to see what you make!

Little Red Wagon Challenge # 555 - How About that Solar Eclipse?

Did you know there was a solar eclipse recently?  It was called a "rare ring of fire" solar eclipse.  That's just a very long way to introduce our new challenge, About that Solar Eclipse?  For this challenge I would love for you to share your projects featuring the Sun, moon, planets, stars or space backgrounds.

Here's what I did using a digi image, Border Backgrounds, from the now closed Whimsie Doodles -


It's over to you now.  If you need a little inspiration, be sure to stop by and take a look at what the Girlfriends were up to this week and remember, it doesn't have to be a card.  Bookmarks, tags, gift bags or boxes work well too, it's up to you.  I can't wait to see your creations!
