Challenge #373 Follow the Star

Hi Everyone!
This is the week that it all happens! I hope that you're all ready.  This week's challenge is Follow the Star.  Stars are so much a part of Christmas - maybe a star atop your tree, or the starry night that baby Jesus was born.  All you need to do is have a star or two on your paper creation. I chose a stamp from Morning Star for my card.  I used a matte finish silver, embossed the manger and star and added a rhinestone to the star.  I love the simplicity of it of this card.  Please join us this week, I can't wait to see your star-studded creations!
I'll be back next Tuesday with my star picks.  In the meantime I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year!

Challenge #372 (Christmas Carols/Songs) - Top Picks

Thanks so much to all who joined in our Christmas Carols and Songs challenge last week. I was looking for projects where a favourite line was used in the project somewhere and the cards below all caught my eye (and had me humming!)!

Congratulations Ladies!! Please grab the badge from the sidebar and add it to your blog!

Christmas Carols/Songs

It's Kate here and I admit to singing Christmas carols since November this year. I love the old, traditional ones that my Gran used to sing and I love the contemporary ones that I'm just learning. I thought it would be fun to incorporate Christmas carols and songs into this week's challenge and am asking that you use a line from one of your favourite Christmas carols in your sentiment (or somehow incorporate a line into your project).

For my card, I let some graphic paper do most of the work but added a little angel (although I think she might be a fairy-turned-angel with her wand!) to announce the joyful news of the first Christmas. My Christmas carol is "Joy to the World". How perfect that I had a sentiment with just those words!! Please check out what the rest of the Girlfriends have created for this challenge and then link up your own Christmas carol/song project! We can't wait to see what you create (and know that I'll be singing your songs up here in Canada)!!

Challenge # 371 Santa is Coming to Town

Santa's Coming to Town!

Gosh, we are one week closer to Christmas (17 days away if you are counting).  If you need another card or a few more tags or gift backs, why not join us this week in featuring Santa on your creation and sharing it with us?

Here are a few Santa tags I have made to give you a bit of inspiration and the Girlfriends have even more to get those creative juices really flowing.  Hope you'll join us!

Holiday Hugz,

It's another week here at Little Red Wagon and we have a new challenge up for you - It's Embossable!  For my card creation I used a swirl embossing folder and highlighted the embossing with  silver metallic chalk, just to make it pop a little bit. You can use either an ink or dry embossing method - LOTs of options here!  Add your creation to the link below and remember this challenge will end next Tuesday.
You can see what the girlfriends have created below. 
Have a wonderful week, I'll be back next Tuesday to make my selections.

Happy Wednesday, all.....or I guess I should say, y'all.  This week the challenge is "Happy Fall Y'all" which means we want to see your autumn projects!  And remember, it doesn't have to be a card, any papercraft make goes.

Top Picks - Challenge #365 (Stencil It!)

Thanks to all who participated in last week's Stencil It! challenge. I had such fun looking through the projects and learning new things! As always, I found it quite difficult to narrow things down to just a few, but here are my top picks from the challenge:

Karen used drywall tape for her stencilling!

Nancy used an aspen tree stencil for the gorgeous card she made for her husband - made to celebrate their 51st wedding anniversary! 

Atop her stencilled clouds, Cyndi used acetate for her interactive card with multiple balloons popping up!

Congratulations, ladies! Please remember to grab your badge from the right and post it proudly on your blog!

Challenge #365 - Stencil It!

Welcome to Challenge #365! If you've played along with each and every Little Red Wagon challenge, you've created the equivalent of one year's worth of projects!

It's Kate here and I'm happy to be this week's hostess. I'm challenging you to "Stencil It!" Get those stencils out of your craft wagons and put them to work! There are so many creative ways to use stencils with paints, watercolours, water, stains, etc., that you've got lots of options. I decided to use texture paste with a snowflake stencil to create my snowy background.

I can't wait to see how you've decided to use your stencils. Once your project is complete, take a photo and link it up below! You've got until next Tuesday night to join the fun. I'll be popping by to check things out and will be posting my top picks next week. See you soon!

Challenge # 361 - Bear With Me

Happy Wednesday, all!  This week....well....I need you all to bear with me....or rather "Bear With Me".  What's the meaning of that?  Well, we just want to see projects with a bear or bears.  So think, grizzly, polar, teddy and any bear in between!  And remember, we're not just about cards, any paper project is welcome.

This is what I did....

Poor wee bear got himself into a bit of a scrape.  Hopefully he'll be feeling better in no time!
