Challenge # 295 - Cute as a Button

Hello everyone Tracy here and this week our challenge is called CUTE AS A BUTTON.

That's right, not only do I want to see something cute, but you need to dig into that growing stash of buttons that I know you have and get one or a handful onto your project.

Here is my lil' cutie from the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Birthday Buddies set. I have a large collection of buttons, however not too many in the stash that match. I did manage to find these cute pink ones.

I hope you have time to join us for this week's CUTE AS A BUTTON challenge. You can link up your project below. If you are looking for a little inspiration, check out all of the Girlfriends blogs (in the side bar). Remember to come back on Tuesday (June 30th) to see our challenge features.

Have a super crafty day!

Challenge #293 - Old MacDonald Had A Farm

Yee-haw!  We are down on the farm this week and you are invited to join us!  I want you to use any farm animal on your card.  Now, I know we see cats and dogs on the farm, but I want to see other farm animals... you know, pigs, sheep, goats, cows, chickens, horses, etc. - some animal that you normally would not see in the city :)

Since my BFF and fellow DT member - Carolyn - just celebrated her birthday a couple of days ago, I decided to use her favorite farm animal on my card.  Cows!

Now it is your turn.  I can't wait to see which farm animal you add to your card.  For more inspiration, be sure to visit the other DT Girlfriend's blogs.  Then link up your own fabulous creation below.  We will be sure to stop by your blog to check it out.

Use It Up Features

I was so impressed with the number of entries there were this week. I am glad that each one of you was able to use something from your stash that you had never used before.  Now that you have used it, you have an excuse to buy something more.  LOL!!!

Here are the cards that stood out to me this week:

Challenge #292 ~ Use It Up!!

Good day everyone!!!  Thanks for joining us for another challenge here at Little Red Wagon.  It's Heather and I am your hostess this week.  My challenge is for you to "USE IT UP".  That means grab something in your enormous stash (and come on, admit it ~ we all have them) that you have never used and get it out there on a creative project.

I have bought a lot of dies over the years and have never used them so this project features a couple of new Spellbinders dies (Garden Weave, Spiral Blossom One) as well as a new sentiment and punch set from Stampin' Up.  Not sure I totally like the result but I did use some of my stash.

Won't you join me and the other girlfriends this week and "USE IT UP!" Be sure to visit their links below and link up your projects.  Can't wait to see what you create.

Hugs, Heather

Favorite Red, White and Blue cards

Well, it's time to share the card that was my favorite this week for the Red, White and Blue Challenge.

I just loved how America used all the different dies (there's the star background, the United States, and the Statue of Liberty) along with the striped papers.  Since my birthday is July 4th, I'm partial to all things patriotic, so I might have to coerce her into sending this to me, lol.

All of the cards submitted were wonderful, and I hope you have a chance to play along next week with Heather.

Thanks everyone  who played along with the Red, White and Blue challenge!
