Jan is asking us to Bear With Her this week at Little Red Wagon Challenge.  Yes, you guessed it, it's not that she's asking us to be patient with her, she wants us to use a bear on our creations.  I happen to love bears, on cards anyway.  I went to my little red wagon and pulled out a couple of LOTV bears that hadn't been inked up yet.  

The set that won out is called Present Trio from Lili of the Valley -

I used the Various Ink and terrycloth method to try and make they look soft and fuzzy.  The papers are digital papers I have been have loads of fun using.  They are from Nitwit Collections.

Dig out your bear stamps and show them some love.  Then join me and the other Girlfriends over at the Little Red Wagon.

It's Fall!

Welcome to another challenge at The Cat's Pajamas.  Before I start with information on this weeks challenge, I want to thank everyone for joining us in the last challenge, Pattern Play.  There were some fantastic makes and I loved seeing them all.  

For this week we are asking you to use Fall colors on your TCP Tuesday creations.  Here's what I came up with using the sweet Friendship set and some watercolor smooshing - 

Here are the details on our challenge -

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.

Here's my creation using the DRS Designs image Berry Wreath -

I really love the way you can change up this gorgeous wreath for any season.  I was obviously inspired by the Bittersweet wreaths that start showing up this time of year.

I hope you'll make it over to join us at CRAFT Challenge.  At the very least stop by to see what the DT had created.  They are an amazingly talented group.

Favorite Colors!

It's time for another As You Like It Challenge.  This fortnight our challenge theme is to use your favorite color combination.  Use your favorite colors on your creation and be sure to tell us why it's your favorite.

This week our sponsor is:

Wild Orchid Crafts

Here is my card, using one of my most favorite  color combinations; Pink, Green and Blue.  This darling image is Lucy's Flowers from Sasayaki Glitter - 

I love these colors because they make me smile and they just go so well together in my opinion.  I also think they are perfect for this oh so sweet image.  Lucy reminds me of my daughter when she was a little one.

I'm really looking forward to seeing your creations.  I can't wait to be inspired to us some new color combinations.  So, head back to the AYLI blog to link up your creation.  While you are there, check out the fabulous prize that's up for grabs and take a look at the gorgeous creations the DT made for you to see!  

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your week is going well!

School Rules!!

Happy Wednesday!  It's Little Red Wagon time and Heather wants to see our "School Rules" creations!

I picked up a few of Sassy Cheryl's digis that are about to retire (and are on sale!) and Backpack Max seemed perfect for this challenge .  Here's my make -

Gonna make this short and sweet (cause I forgot to do this post last night and I'm running a bit late for work).  Please join us at Little Red Wagon.  For inspiration, visit the Girlfriends because they rule too!

Hope your week is going smoothly and full of blessings!
