Indulge Me ...

Can you handle just a little more "inchie art?" This will be the end of it (for a while) unless, that is, I'm hopeless addicted. While I don't think we have to worry about that, it is kind of fun. As you can see, I made 3x3-inch gift enclosure cards with my most recent tiny creations. All three were colored with markers, and I used square, clear mosaic stickers (like Window Charms) on the top and bottom ones. They add some dimension as does the textured cardstock I used. I'm not going to bother with a materials list, as I think you can readily see what I used. The stamp set is "Butterflies & Birds" by Inkadinkado. By the looks of it (and I almost wish I hadn't looked!), it's one of several new stamp sets that lend themselves to inchie art. Ah, so many stamps. So little time. LOL.

How is your Monday going? I started the day with a whopper of a headache that kept me home from work until noon. I've had this off and on thing going on for weeks - occasional headaches, a throat that is kind of sore, and the cold I caught way back when not really doing anything but not going away either. It's probably allergies - a can of worms I would rather not officially open.

My stamp club met last night and as always, was so much fun. Having this opportunity to see my friends is a highlight of every month. As for the week, there are a few things happening, including Bjorn's "graduation" from preschool on Wednesday. This weekend, we have a couple of high school graduation open houses to attend as well as my great-niece Hailey's first birthday party in Roseau on Saturday afternoon. Tonight, I'm going to get my stamp club mess cleaned up and hopefully, eke out a card. Thanks for stopping by! Your support is so appreciated. Enjoy the week! Later...

All three are super cute! I've had the forever cough too. I was put on Advair which has helped somewhat. : )

These are all so cute. I love the "inchie" look. I hope your headache and other ailments will go away real soon.

Kathi,
The inchies are wonderful - I think I've underestimated them. Must try again!

I know what you mean about your monthly group - my "clan" is coming over on Sunday and I'm anticipating the afternoon with great joy! We have so much fun - laugh like school girls, tease, and tell stories, and help each other. It's an incredible gift - I am SO lucky to have this special day each month! I'm sure you know what I mean.

Lots of great cards, lots of fun activities and I hope you enjoy every single one of them.

You are lucky to get a "graduation." Neither of my girls have had any sort of "graduation" ceremony. The preschool they went to didn't do it and the kindergarten doesn't either. huh...interesting...

Today though, Jessica's class is doing a patriotic show (much like the Hoedown earlier in the school year). Was originally for Flag Day, but, um, the kids won't be IN school on Flag Day. LOL

Hope you feel better soon. Go to the doctor and make sure nothing major is going on!
