Little Red Wagon.....Be A Negative Nellie!

Good morning.

Hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend and the bunny was good to you!

He didn't actually leave me any chocolate treats which is good for my waistline, but not so good for the kiddo's........means I'll have to steal borrow some of their stash!

I haven't been around as much as I'd have liked, and it's not that I haven't been busily creating, I have - like a maniac actually as Scrapfest is literally next week, but of course can't post any of that yet.

It is Wednesday though which means Little Red Wagon day, and a card of course!

Jan's turn to deliver the challenge today and only she could come up with the title 'Be A Negative Nellie'!

Just to be clear, it means we are to use the negative space of a die cut, and although I do love this type of challenge (gets the old brain cells working you know), when you decide to make said card at, oooh lets say midnight last night (I finished at 1.10am this morning) it can get a little frustrating, and noisy when you've got your Slice running.........did I mention I scrap in my bedroom - good job hubby had fallen asleep on the couch!

Anyhow all said and done, I'm quite pleased with the outcome.

Here goes:

The sentiment (a freebie I picked up eons ago from a blog called Scrapdictive) and border were printed via Word.

I then 'popped' the whole front of the card to allow me some button sticking in there.

Again I wouldn't recommend having to glue dot a whole bunch of teeny tiny buttons at some silly hour in the night/morning.......not the most enjoyable thing to do!

Ah well, another card for the stock pile.

I hope you'll get a chance to play along with this weeks challenge, we'd love to see your creative talents put to the test.  Don't forget to check out the projects from the rest of the girlfriends........genius I tell ya!

Have a great day and hopefully I'll be back here a little more regularly as I'm happy to say I'm pretty much done with DT deadlines.

See you soon,



Well done Jayne! Clearly you work well under pressure :)

FABULOUS!! Love this Jayne - well worth all the effort.


Wow, Jayne, you trooper, you! Crafting into the wee hours of the morning and a recovering hand to boot.....that's dedication! Wonderful card. I sure wish I could create that well under pressure.


A fab card, love the idea of putting the buttons in the heart.


Loving the buttons! Such a pretty card!
