Challenge #443 ~ Riding Along!

Hi there.  Heather here and I am your hostess for this week's challenge.  I have chosen the title "Riding Along" and I want to see some form of transportation on your make. So that means cars, bikes, trains, planes and yes, even horses ~ anything that you use to get from point A to point B.

Here's mine:


Check out the amazing inspiration from the other girlfriends in Mr. Linky and then link up a transportation project of your own.  I am looking forward to seeing what you all do.  You have until next Tuesday.

Enjoy your day!

Challenge # 442 - C.O.U.S. (Cards of Unusual Size)

Happy Wednesday, all!  This week we've got a fun one for you.  We'd like to see C.O.U.S.....which just means Cards of Unusual Size.  So, no everyday sized square cards, no standard rectangles, (you know what I'm talking about here, those A7s, A6s or A2s).  What does that leave?  Well, lots!  We'll take any shaped card (no matter the dimensions), circle cards that are bigger or smaller than the normal, and of course any square or rectangular cards that are outside the measurements above.   And remember, it doesn't have to be a card, we'd love to see your tag, bookmark, altered project, mixed media art, scrapbook page or any papercraft you'd like to create.  Just make sure they are uniquely sized as well.

**And, be sure to tell us in your blog post the dimensions of your project as it's sometimes hard to tell from a photo.  Or, you can use a prop to show us the scale, if you'd rather.  Square & rectangle creations that do not have the size listed will not be considered for our Featured Post.**

This is what I did.....
 

My card is 8" x 3.5". Not a size you see everyday, so it fits!

If you'd like more inspiration be sure to check out the wonderful projects the Girlfriends have created. Then, head back here and link up.

Can't wait to see what you create!

Challenge 439 - Hippity Hoppity

It's Wednesday again and we have another challenge for you.  This week we are looking for creations with something that hops on it.  With Easter just around the corner, a bunny would be perfect or there's always kangaroos  and fish...if it hops, it's good.  For my card, I pulled out an old stamp set and watercolored up this cute little frog.



Remember now, you don't have to enter a card.  We would love to see any of your handcrafted items with hopping creatures.
Looking forward to seeing all your creations!

Challenge # 438 - Who Run the World? Girls!

Happy Wednesday, all!  This week the challenge is all about girls & women.  We'd like to see you feature one or the other, or both, on your projects this week.  And remember, it doesn't have to be a card, we'd love to see your tag, bookmark, altered project, mixed media art, scrapbook page or any papercraft you'd like to create.

This is what I did.....


I went with an elegant woman......pretty sure she'd have no problem running the world!

Challenge #437~ Focus on Family

Good morning. It's Heather and it's my turn to hostess the challenge this week. I've been thinking a lot about family lately and decided we needed to do a challenge all about it. So you can interpret that any way you like but the way I see it is projects (and they don't have to be just cards....a scrapbook page would work great for family) featuring family members or something specific for a family member (eg. Happy Birthday Mom). Clear as mud? LOL!

Here is what I did.  My card features two boys that I am seeing as brothers and it is for a Mom.



So check out what the other girlfriends have linked below and then it's your turn to show me a family project in the link up.

Have a great day!

Featured Projects - Thanks a Latte

Thanks to all who played along with last week's Thanks a Latte challenge. I had a craving for a sweet hot drink as I was admiring them all - but it was too late for anything!

I enjoyed all the projects (as I always do) but here are a couple that caught my eye especially.

Challenge #435 - Thanks a Latté

Happy Wednesday! This week's challenge is all about hot beverages - whether it be coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cider, lattes, etc. In some way, please feature a hot beverage (so no little mug tucked in a corner). How you interpret the challenge is up to you though. Perhaps you'll make a pretty box for specialty teas or a gift bag for hot chocolate and marshmallows. Perhaps you'll create a gift card holder for your favourite coffee shop. Or, perhaps you'll create a card with a hot beverage taking front and center, just like I did.


There's a link up below and you've got a week to join us. I'm looking forward to seeing your creations and visiting your blogs to comment on your projects. I can't wait to see what you make!

Go Green Featured Projects

We had a couple of interpretations of Go Green for the last challenge and since I was the queen of the challenge I say everyone did a great job on both the upcycle and the go green in color angle.  Here are the ones I especially loved -




Wonderful cards, ladies please feel free to grab your badge from the sidebar.  I hope to see you all in our next challenge which will be up in a little while!

Go Green

Happy Wednesday! If it's Wednesday, it's time for a new challenge here at Little Red Wagon. This week I would like to see something recycled or upcycled. It can be anything from a ribbon or lace you got from a Valentine goodie or a piece of cardboard or previously used paper. If you've ever had a card turn out less than what you expected, salvage the image and use it this week.  The sky is the limit, if it lived a previous life use it on your creation, it counts. Remember, it doesn't have to be a card to enter.

Here's my card -


The background paper for this card is a piece of scratch paper, you can see the old print in the background. I used this paper to clean metallic paints off my brayer and loved the way it looked. In real life it has a wonderful metallic sheen.  If you could see the back of this cute little angel, you would see that she is stamped on the opposite side of an digi image I didn't use. 

Hopefully you have some idea of how you can create and upcycle for our challenge. If you need more ideas, I know the Girlfriends are going to rock this challenge, so give them a visit. I hope you'll join us this week, can't wait to see what you create!

Featured Luuurve Projects

So delighted that so many of you joined us this week!  I saw such wonderful makes I was having a really hard time narrowing down my picks.....but then I remember that that was the joy of having a "Featured" badge rather than a Top __, I didn't have to pick only a specific number, I could just show all my favourite faves!  So here they are....








I was totally feeling the love with these fantastic cards!  Ladies, feel free to grab the Featured badge for your blog.

And, I hope to see everyone back tomorrow for our next challenge!

Challenge # 433 - Luuurve

Happy Wednesday, all!  And Happy Valentine's Day too!  The challenge is all about luuurve (love) this week.  It doesn't have to be a Valentine's make, anything about love (like weddings, anniversary or a just because love) will do.  And remember, it doesn't have to be a card, we'd love to see your tag, bookmark, altered project, mixed media art or any papercraft you'd like to create.

This is what I did.....


Lots of love going on there, just look at all the hearts!  (:

Challenge # 431 - Birthday Balloons

Hi there, it´s Imke here with my first time as a host at "Little Red Wagon". My theme for this week is:

"Birthday Balloons" 

Whether you're a kid or an adult, you're never too old for balloons, right ? There are so many different colors and shapes - let your creativity run wild - I'm looking forward to your projects !



When I held this Unity Stamp in my hands, I realized that this Lady with her Balloons is very big ! Difficult to get her to a normal card size but i did it. Maybe it´s also good to think about another card size, maybe business size ? I will try it next time. But now it's your turn, be creative and link up your project below !
