Thanks so much!

It has been unseasonably warm here in Central Ontario and I've even had the air conditioner back on!! I've been waiting until later evening to walk the dog and it's still be incredibly hot and humid. I love the heat and prefer this over snow any day!


Sandy is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's challenging us to include both a house and a heart on our projects. I used my Zig markers to colour the homes and I then masked things to create the stenciled background. 

Please join us at Little Red Wagon with your own house and heart projects!!

Autumn Leaves

It's my turn to host at Little Red Wagon this week and I've chosen the theme "Leaf It to Me" - include leaves on your projects.


With the leaves beginning to change colour here, my thoughts went to fall leaves. I used some distress ink, vellum and heat embossing to create my card with a sentiment from My Craft Spot (no longer in business). The little mouse is one of the first clear stamp images that I ever purchased. He's so sweet!!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then make your own leafy project to link up! I can't wait to see your creations!

On the Loss of Your Furry Friend

Another week has flown by. I'm so happy to be back at work as I love my job - but I am exhausted! This is such a busy time of year with all the new first year students doing intakes.


Jan is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week, and she wants us to "Distress It" - use distress inks or other distress products on your projects. Unfortunately, last month, our department's support dog passed away. Whisper was a wonderful part of our accessibility team and she was such a calming influence on so many. I made this card for Whisper's companion (who is also our Office Administrator).

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' projects - and then link up your own distressed creation!

Eek!

Anybody else think it's Tuesday today? Here in Canada, we celebrated Labour Day on Monday so had an extra day off this past weekend. It's thrown me off - although I am certainly not complaining!

Brenda is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's curious about our backgrounds - our project backgrounds, that is. Brenda has challenged us to create our own backgrounds.


For my card, I started by stamping and heat embossing a large web stamp that I've had (sitting unused) in my supply cupboard for years. I figured that it was time to pull it out. Once stamped, I then used a variety of distress inks to finish the background. The little mummy is from Your Next Stamp. He's so cute!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the fabulous backgrounds created by the rest of the Girlfriends - and then get out your crafting supplies to create your own background!

I'm also entering my card in the latest Your Next Stamp sketch challenge (Challenge #72). I flipped the sketch upside down to work with my scene.

The Hero Arts spider web cling stamp that I used for my background seems to be out of production. The little bats are dies from My Craft Spot (no longer in business).
