LRW - Travelogue

The challenge for Little Red Wagon is to make something that is inspired by a country. Well, this really stumped me, so I did a little research.

Who knew there were so many different countries?  I didn't.  When looking at the list of choices, I was drawn in by all of the warm, tropical places (it was a very long winter, lol).  I decided to do something inspired by the country Bahamas!!!!!

Here is my card :)


Yup, this is totally what I think of when I think of the Bahamas!  Did you know that Bahamas is made up of 700 islands (only about 30 of which are inhabitated) and 2400 uninhabitated inlets?  I didn't either.....just a little geography lesson for ya :)


Be sure to visit the other girlfriends and see what countries they chose!!  Be sure to link up your creation over on the Little Red Wagon blog.

LRW - Spring is in the Air

This week's challenge for Little Red Wagon is 'spring is in the air'. I decided that it was time for a 3D project....I haven't done one in awhile.

All the birds are returning to our neighbourhood, and this means early morning serenedes.  I love waking to the sound of robins singing!!  To celebrate, I created this sweet little birdhouse.


I added a little cluster of flowers to the branch using stickers and another large one above the birds.


This will look perfect on the bookshelves in my livingroom,  I always like to decorate with something to celebrate a new season.

Be sure to visit the other girlfriends blogs and see what they have created.  I hope you have time to play along with our challenge, and don't forget to link up your creation over on the Little Red Wagon blog.

LRW - Call The Vet

I love animals!!!  I have 4 cats at home and anyone who knows me knows that I adore cows.  It doesn't stop there.....I pretty much love all animals, so this week's challenge for Little Red Wagon was just perfect for me.

I did have a hard time just picking one animal though.  I wanted to make a card for all my favourites.  Because Easter is this coming weekend, I chose to do a rabbit.  I had this adorable cut file on my Silhouette and just had to use him.


I added a bow out of my favourite ribbon and a little sentiment tag.


This week is going to be fun.  I will definitely be visiting everyones blogs to check out the animal creations.  Be sure to do the same.  Also, don't forget to link up your creation at the Little Red Wagon blog.

Yay!!! It is my turn to host this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon.  I want you to use stars on your project!!  They can be shiny, bright, shooting, brilliant, heavenly.....whatever you like.

I made them in different sizes and mixed solid with silhouettes.  Fun huh?

LRW - All Tied Up

Well, I have really been enjoying the milder temperatures and this week's challenge for Little Red Wagon has me wanting to creating something to reflect that.

Tracy is our hostess and her challenge is 'all tied up'!!  That means ribbon, twine, bows, etc.  Isn't that great?  I had fun with this challenge and made this spring themed card and wrapped the flower pot in twine!!


I can't wait until the flowers start peeking through!!


I hope you will find some time to play along with this week's challenge.  If you need some inspiration, check out the other girlfriends blogs.  Also, be sure to link up your project over on the Little Red Wagon blog!!
