LRW - Anything Christmas Themed

It is my turn to host the challenge at Little Red Wagon and I decided since Christmas is only a week away that I would keep it really simple!!  Anything Christmas themed......now that leaves the door wide open!!

Here is my insiration!!!  I created this multi-layered wreath using my Silhouette (big surprise, huh?).


I added some sequins/enamel dots for the holly berries and wrapped some twine around for garland.


I used my trimmer and a bone folder to add some embosssed lines to make a border and then added some ribbon and a tiny tag for my sentiment.


This was a fun card to make.  I hope you will join us and create 'anything Christmas themed' and play along with my challenge.  Be sure to link up your creation over on the Little Red Wagon blog.  If you need a little more inspiration, visit the 'girlfriends' blogs by clicking their names on my sidebar.

Enjoy!!

I have also entered my card in the following challenges:

LRW - So Flaky

This week, the Little Red Wagon challenge is being hosted by Jan!!  She want to see snowflakes, and because no 2 snowflakes are ever alike, I think there are going to be a lot of great projects this week.

I wanted to try something a little different, so I made a shaker card.  I used up some old scraps I had in my stash, but the best part was that I actually managed to get the word 'snow' to line up perfectly inside my window :)


I added a combination of beads and sequins for the filler.  This is the tricky part.....because they want to jump around and stick to the adhesive.  I also added a nice big chipboard snowflake with a button and twine to accent.


I added some of my favourite ribbon, twine and an enamel dot, along with a tiny tag that says 'brrr'.



A big 'thank you' to Jan for this awesome challenge.  I am super happy with my card and had a lot of fun playing along.

Be sure to visit the other DT blogs (click on their names on my sidebar) and see what 'flakey' projects they came up with.  If you play along, visit the Little Red Wagon blog and link up your creation.

LRW - Things With Wings

Hello everyone! I am here with another challenge from Little Red Wagon. This week it is Joanne's turn and she came up with a great one.  Her challenge is 'Things With Wings'.  Isn't that great?  I am sure there are going to be lots of interesting entries this week.

I decided to make this sweet Penguin shaped card!!  His wings are tiny, but they are there :)


I embellished with some stitching on his scarf, a couple of sequins and a borrowed sticker from my daughter.


I am really happy with how he turned out.  I love his big googly eyes!!


I hope you will visit the other LRW girlfriends and see what they have created.  Click on their names on my sidebar to visit their blogs.  If you play along, don't forget to link up your project over on the Little Red Wagon blog.

LRW - Washi Tape

It's Wednesday.....and that means another great challenge from Little Red Wagon. This week it is Heather's turn and she wants us to use Washi Tape!!

I love Washi Tape!!!  I do have quite a few rolls, but I must admit, I don't use it very often.  I don't know why, but I was thrilled to pull it out and make a card using some of my Disney themed designs.


I used my Washi tape to create a background for my card.  I just quickly measured the length I needed and ripped a piece off......no sicissors required.


I added a few little embellishments......and presto!!!!  A card.


I can't wait to see what the other LRW girlfriends have created using Washi Tape. You can visit their blogs by clicking on their names on my side-bar.  Hopefully you will find some time to play along.  Be sure to link up your creation over on the Little Red Wagon blog!!
