Little Red Wagon

Hi!! I am so behind on posting and showing my new cards with Beyond Baskets!! Eek! I assume, though, that *most* of you already checked out my samples with the set so far in the party threads, so I have not been very diligent about posting, but here is one I made for a birthday we are attending tomorrow, for one of my younger son's friends.
I love how you stamp on the side of the wagon so many combinations of the new greetings in this set, like a little Radio Flyer!  Image is colored with Copics.  I made my own patterns with my markers creating a plaid and some polka dots instead of paper piecing.  The topper is cut out and glued over the wagon, see how it covers the handle. (I could have masked it, too, but, eh!) hope you like it. thought hey looked so cute together I came the sketch simple.  Cardstock is Pure Luxury Wild Dandelion, Cherry Red, and White.  I can't wait to piece the wagon with some cute spotty or floral pattern or in piiiinkkk! :)
So, I'm back to where I was before: we have Inspraition Hops starting Monday and I don't know what to show with my set??  too many choices!  All my other samples made, but those, ...hmmm? Suggestions? ;-)

Have a terrific weekend!


  1. I love what you did with the little red wagon. As a young girl I got a little red wagon for a birthday gift and yes, it was filled with gifts too. I think I was about five years old. I can still remember that birthday clearly. So what a neat memory this is. And, I am pleased to say I now own your little red wagon along with all the new containers on your new set. I can hardly wait to get working with them. Thanks for a great set design.

  2. This is just toooo darling! I love the sentiment on the wagon!

  3. Cute card with the little red wagon.
    Suggestion: close your eyes and point your finger to which one you will begin with...LOL!
    Now isn't that a big help? Sorry, could not resist! You do such a wonderful job, I really have no suggestions.
    Paper Hugs,

  4. What an adorable card.I have this stamp set on my wish list and I hope to get it soon.


  5. Dear Melanie,
    Your designs are so lovable! I remember my brother getting a little red wagon in the early 60s. Baby things topper time?


Your generous feedback helps make my work and this blog better! Thanks for inspiring and motivating me! :)
