Another sleeping Riley picture but I couldn't resist! Please click to see him in all his sleeping glory, on top of my printer mind you..

Here is my entry for two challenge blogs. The first is for http://2cre8art.blogspot.com/ the technique used is peeled paper and it was the first time I used this technique so that was fu nfor me. I might have made it a little too busy.. but overall I'm good with it. The second challenge blog that this postcard will be entered to is http://sundaypostcardart.wordpress.com/ and that challenge is to create a postcard and the theme this week is cats. That's how Sadie came to be! Please click to enlarge to see details and check out both these challenge blogs!! Good stuff!

This is the end of a yawn...

Here are my inchies for http://www.inchybyinch.blogspot.com/ challenge this week, the theme was to use buttons and I love the way they turned out! I put a hanger on one and I'm thinking about adding little hangers to the rest, not sure yet. But, check out the site and join in.. inchies are addicting!

This is a scary picture.. but I kind of like the way his ear is curled up over top..

This is a postcard I made using copies of the Valentine ATC's I made the other day to send out to wounded soldiers, if anyone is interested in joining the Soldiers Angels group here is a link http://www.soldiersangels.com/. They have many different opportunities to help show and send support to our soldiers from sending cards to the wounded, making handcrafted items, sending care packages, adopting a soldier, there's a long list, if you have the time to check it out, please do.. thanks!

and here is a little pile of love I ended up with this afternoon!

Journal Page and Laying on Paws

Here is a journal page I made for a book I'm going to put together eventually, when I have enough cool pages to fill a book. This is the second journal page I've ever attempted, I'm used to ATC size, inchie and domino size, I tried doing a full page at first and it was too much so I cut the page in half and this is how it turned out. I kind of like it. You can click the pic to see it big size.

CAROUSEL INCHIES AND SNOW!!!!

We had a short but sweet snow blizzard for about an hour or so the other day, it didn't amount to any good sticking snow but it was fun to run around in while it lasted.


CAROUSEL HORSES!








I get to pick the theme for the http://www.inchybyinch.blogspot.com/ this week! I picked Carousel Horses and this is my inchie cube.
I am officially in love with inchie cubes, I want to try making some on actual wood blocks next.
This sweet blue with white is one of my favorite combinations.
The tutorial that inspired me can be found here
