Gosh, here we are mid October...I'm finding that almost unbelievable. None the less, it's time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon and I'm asking you to Shape Up. Don't worry, I don't like to sweat and exercise is not on the agenda. What this does mean is we want to see your cards in any shape but a square or a rectangle. Here's my card -

I can't wait to see what you link up, there are so many wonderful shapes to create. If it's inspiration you need, visit the Girlfriends for there take on this challenge. Be sure to check back next week, I'll share my stand out picks!

The Cat's Pajamas October Blog Hop!

I'm so happy to welcome you to The Cat’s Pajamas October Release Hop! We’ve had a bunch of fun showing off the new stamps and CutUps Dies that are now available in the store! It's also TCP Tuesday reminder week.

Today the whole team is going to show off a few more designs that show a little sparkle, and I get to be the top of the lineup.

I chose to use the Card in a Box Cutable to create a snowy scene featuring We Three Snowmen and a sentiment from Reindeer Games -

I die cut a bunch of snowflakes using Snowflake Lace Paper and Double Snowflakes CutUps.  The sparkle doesn't show much, be the snowflakes were all cut from glitter paper.

I'm going to be sending you off the see what wonderful creation Deborah has made.  In case you need it, here’s the whole Hop Lineup -
