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!  (:

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!

Hello.  Welcome back to a new challenge this week.  It's Heather here and my challenge theme is SHADES OF RED ~ I want to see shades of reds and pinks on your makes along with neutrals.

A bit of a departure from my usual "cutesy" style but I like the romantic feel to this card.  Check out what the other girlfriends have made in the link below and link up a SHADES OF RED make of your own.  I am looking forward to seeing what you create.

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 !
