Little Red Wagon Challenge #387- Hippity Hoppity

Hello again! This week Sandy chose Hippity Hoppity for the challenge. So she wants us to use a bunny or something that hops. I chose a Bunny from My Favorite Things and put him on a little paper Easter Basket that I made using my We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Punch Board. I was inspired by a die I saw for an Easter Basket. I thought the shape of the die looked a lot like the Gift Bags that I have made in the past using the Gift Bag Punch Board. So I played around with the Punch Board and came up with a fun little basket of my own!

I hope you will join us this week on the Little Red Wagon blog and Sandy will pick her favorites next Tuesday. I can't wait to see all the beautiful creative projects!

Have fun!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #385- Tag It!

Hello again! This week the Little Red Wagon challenge is called Tag It! I love tags and I hope you do too! So many possibilities! I took a cute little Stamping Bella stamp called Nice To See You Petunia. It has cute little chicks on the stamp too, but some maneuvering of the image just a little and she worked out great. She's just peeking around the corner of the tag!

So I hope to see you over on the Little Red Wagon Blog too. Lots of inspiration by all the Girlfriends. They really are so creative!

Have fun!
