Little Red Wagon #597


We have a new challenge for you over at Little Red Wagon.  Kate is our hostess and as you may remember, she is causing all to sing with her song inspired challenges.  Today the line is "In the Air Tonight" so, she wants to see just that, things in the air like balloons, aircraft, birds...
 



I recently treated myself to some new STAMPlorations stamps by The Bee's Knees and was really wanting to give them a play.  Here you see Layered Vase and the pretty butterfly from Winged Things.  I really enjoyed all the stamping.  The butterfly was colored loosely with Copic Markers in hopes of giving it a style similar to the flowers which were stamped.  I had such fun (and needed more birthday cards) so I made another, this time with a tiny dragonfly in the air.  



 
If you create something that is "In the Air Tonight", why not give our challenge a go?  Just head on over to Little Red Wagon and link up. While you're there, be sure to check out the wonderful projects the other Girlfriends have created.

Aloha,
Brenda

As You Like It Challenge #205 - Embossing or Stencils


 


It's time for another As You Like It Challenge.  This fortnight our challenge theme is to choose your favorite between embossing and stenciling.  Be sure to tell us why it's your favorite for a chance to win.


This week our sponsor is:


I have to say I favor both dry and heat embossing.  I love the magical transformation that happens with heating embossing powder and the added dimension and texture dry embossing gives.   I've used both dry and heat embossing on this card.

We would love for you to head back to the AYLI blog to link up your creation.  While you are there, check out the 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!

Little Red Wagon #596

 

 

Happy Wednesday!  I am your hostess over at the Little Red Wagon Challenge this week.  I have chosen the theme Monsters Everywhere.  What I am looking for here are literally some of the cute little monster stamps/digis I have seen lately or MONSTER images for instance those from Graciellie Designs or Colorado Craft Company.  You know, the ones that take up the entire front of an A2 card blank.

I chose to use a Little Miss Muffet NBUS Monster stamp.  I got this when I was on the DT and the store was closing.  He is actually a Bugaboo image and can be found here in Jodie's store as a digi.  I colored him up with my Prismacolor pencils that have been getting very dusty.  The tag is a die and banner are from My Favorite Things and the panels are dies from Elizabeth Crafts.

It would be so nice to have you join us over at Little Red Wagon this week.  I can't wait to see your monsters and monster images.  Remember, you don't have to make a card.  We love seeing scrapbook pages, bookmarks, tags, boxes, give it a shot!

Be sure to check in on the Girlfriends, they are sure to inspire you with their fab creations.

Aloha,

Brenda

CRAFT Challenge #593





 


It's time for another CRAFT Challenge!  We would love for you to join us this week in creating a project dedication to Communication.  

Our Sponsors this week are -

JMC Designs



As a cardmaker, one of my favorite ways of communicating is to send the cards I make.  I have been mailing even more over the past year since we haven't been able to visit with friends/loved ones as we usually do.  I had the pleasure of creating with one of the cut files provided by our generous sponsor, the Cutting Cafe.  I used Mailbox Template which includes both of the cute mailboxes shown above.   
I sure hope you'll decide to join us at CRAFT Challenge this week!


Aloha,
Brenda

Little Red Wagon Challenge #595

 




Can you believe today is the last day of March?  Since it's a Wednesday, that means we have a new challenge for you over at Little Red Wagon Challenge.  Janice is our hostess this week and she is saying Happy Birthday!  That's easy enough, right, she wants to see our birthday cards.  Do you think she did that because my birthday is in April?  Actually, I have a lot of birthdays to celebrate in April, so this is a very timely challenge for me.


This week, I decided to use some much loved older stamps and dies that haven't seen any love for a very long time.  The stamp is from Lili of the Valley which I think you can still find in digital form in their Etsy shop.  The dies are almost vintage from My Favorite Things.  I don't think they carry them any more.  It was fun to make the little rolled daisies to match the design paper.

We would love to see your birthday creations this week.  Head on over to Little Red Wagon and link up. Don't forget, we would love to see your tags, gift bags, as well as cards.  Be sure to check out the wonderful projects the other Girlfriends have created for your inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!

Aloha,
Brenda

CRAFT Challenge #592


It's time for another CRAFT Challenge!  We would love for you to join us this week in creating a Spring/Easter project.



Our Sponsors this week are -



I had the pleasure of using the image Spring has Sprung, provided by All Dressed Up Stamps.  I never pass up the opportunity to use these wonderful digis and encourage you to take a look at Wendy's store.
I'm leaving a sentiment off of this one because it could be used for several occasions.  I'll add it to the ribbon when the need is determined.

I hope you will drop by the CRAFT Challenge blog and join us this week.  The design team has made some wonderful cards for your inspiration, why not leave them a little love.  Speaking of design team, our call is still open if you want to give it a try. 

Aloha,
Brenda

As You Like It Challenge #204

 



It's time for another As You Like It Challenge.  This fortnight our challenge theme is to share your favorite Easter Time Critter on you creation.  Be sure to tell us why it's your favorite for a chance to win.



This week our sponsor is:


My favorite Easter Critter  had the bunny winning out over the chick by just a smidge.  Bunnies are so cute and soft and bring back fond memories of my childhood when I had a beautiful white bunny named Thumper (yes, like in Bambi).

For my card, I colored up a NBUS stamp set (I hate to guess how long this cutie has gone unused) from Mama Elephant called Page Huggers.  The dies are from The Cat's Pajamas Stitched Tree Duo die.

We would love for you to join us this fortnight over at the AYLI blog. Just link up your creation for a chance to win.  While you are there, take a look at the gorgeous creations the DT made for you to see!  

Thanks for stopping by!
