Little Red Wagon #309 - Embossing Folder

Our challenge at Little Red Wagon this week is brought to us by Mandy and she wants us to use an embossing folder on our cards.

I created this sweet little baby girl card.

The background is an embossed 'baby' word background.  I then cut out the banner, scalloped circle and baby rattle using my Silhouette.

Now you get to create something awesome using an embossing folder and link it up at Little Red Wagon.  Don't forget to stop by each of the Girlfriend's blogs also.  You will be sure to get lots of great inspiration.

Have a blessed week ~

Little Red Wagon #308 - Fall Theme

Another Wednesday already?  Time is just flying by and I can't believe we are already into our Fall themed challenges at Little Red Wagon!  This week Donna wants to see anything for Fall, y'all!

Nothing screams Fall more than pumpkins (well, except maybe leaves changing colors or cooler temperatures or long shadows or fall mums!) so I decided to add a trio of pumpkins to my card.

I also thought that some Kraft cardstock for my card background would add to a fall feel.  And instead of using ribbon, I actually pulled out some pretty yarns and twine and tied them to my card.

Even though I am not quite ready to welcome Fall, I enjoyed making this card.  Now it is your turn to think Fall.  Create a Fall themed card and link it up at Little Red Wagon.  We will be sure to stop by your blog and leave some love :)

Little Red Wagon #307 - Something New

Welcome to Wednesday and another great challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Brenda is our hostess this week and she wants us to try something new - a new stamp, new technique, new tool, etc.

I saw a great technique on my friend Jan's blog recently and I really wanted to give it a try.  It is a layered technique.

I printed out this sweet image 4 times and then I trimmed a bit off each one, going smaller and smaller each time.  Then I matted the layers and layered them onto the background.

I just love the simplicity and the effectiveness of this technique.  I also added some stitching and a bow I made using my coveted dyed and crinkled ribbon.

I can't wait to see what you try this week!  Share your technique with us by linking up your card at Little Red Wagon. See you there.

Little Red Wagon #306 - Digi Do!

This week's challenge at Little Red Wagon is brought to you by Jan and she would like us to use a digital stamp on our card.  How fun!

I have been on a clean and simple roll lately, partly because I am really busy with a new job and I don't have time to spend making fussy cards, and partly because I love clean and simple! 

I used a digital stamp from Tiddly Inks, Birds in Line, and a sentiment I created in Word.  Then I pulled out my trusty Copic markers that I have been neglecting lately and I colored the image up.  I did add a bit of glitter to the birds which made them happy :)

I hope you join in the fun this week!  Pop on over to Little Red Wagon and link up your creation.  We will be sure to visit your blog.

Have a blessed week ~

Cheesy Pepperoni Bites

I can't even remember the last time I posted anything other than a card for my Little Red Wagon challenges.  But I tried a new recipe recently when I attended an end-of-summer street party with my neighbors and it is a keeper.  It was for Cheesy Pepperoni Bites and I have to say they were delicious!

Here is the recipe in case you would like to try something different.  I think they would make an awesome after school snack or even a snack that you can pack in your lunch.  They are great served with warmed up pizza sauce.

Cheesy Pepperoni Bites 

3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese (about 1 cup)
4 ounces turkey pepperoni, chopped
1/2 cup pizza sauce

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan.  In a large bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder.  Whisk in the milk and egg.
Next, stir in mozzarella.
Finally, stir in the pepperoni and mix well.  Let stand for 7-10 minutes.
Divide batter among the mini-muffin cups.  Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
While waiting for the bites to bake, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through.

Note:  I added a dash of basil to the mixture for a bit of seasoning.

Little Red Wagon #305 - Clean & Simple

It is my turn to host the challenge at Little Red Wagon this week and I chose Clean & Simple.  I really love clean and simple designs.  They are just so clean... and simple!

Here is the card I created for inspiration.

I used a simple digi stamp that I kept black and white.  I added a dashed border and a button and then layered it onto the card background.

It doesn't get more clean or simple than that! 

Now I hope you will join in this challenge.  Head over to Little Red Wagon, check out the great designs that the Girlfriends created and then link up your own creation.  We will be sure to visit your blog and you might even be featured next Tuesday!

Have a blessed week ~
