I thought I would try this challenge today before heading into work. The idea is to create a small piece with a size of 1.1 x 2.8 inches. It's a fun size to work with...kinda like an inchie high rise! The theme is your favorite color. My favorite color is red so here it is. Now, off to work with me!

The theme this week for Wednesday Stampers is Stars. While I was thinking about what I was going to I came across some paper mache stars I'd bought at Christmas time...I had planned to make some ornaments but never got to them. So, I thought this would be the perfect time to use one. She might just make it on to next year's tree!

The theme this week for the Gothic Arches challenge is Old School Days. I had all kinds of ideas and pictures of sweet little school children and then I found this image. This is an older student and he captured my imagination. He has such an earnest looking face and I imagine he thought going to school was a way to one day fulfill his dreams.

I had time to work on my charms today! These are for the second charm swap at the Salvage Studio in Edmonds. The swap is this coming Saturday and I was actually able to get the day off...woohoo! I had a couple of different ideas for the charm I was going to make this time but in the end I decided to use these little charm blanks from Alpha Stamps. I used the collage images from their site then I took some versamark reinker and UTEE and baked them in the oven. I'm pleased with how they turned out and I hope eveyone likes them.

I received my first six inchies today in the aMUSEme 6 x6 Inchie swap from Sherry Wilson and they're so much fun...I love what she's done. The colors are fabulous and the little embellishments she's used are just perfect! It's hard to tell from the scan but some of them are actually 3 dimensional and there are little jewels on each one. They're just wonderful! It's going to be so much fun to receive a new batch of inchies from a different person each month!

Well, I should be getting ready for work but playing is SO much more fun! I took a look at the Wednesday Stamper site today and just had to have a go! Plus I still had Valentine images on my desk and there's only one more day to use them so here it is...

Bridget held a Mother's Day Card Class last night with the aMUSEme group. This was such a fun, springy card to make...a little out of the norm for me but I really like it! I just might make a purple version for my mom's birthday later this month...purple has always been her favorite color and I think she'd love this card! Here's the card I made for class...

The aMUSEme group has started a new inchie swap. Each person playing will be assigned a different partner each month. You have to send your partner six different inchies once a month for 6 months. There's no theme or rules other than the inchies all have to be different and some kind of embellishment must be on at least two of them. At the end of the first 6 months Marjie will award each of the players with an inchie book which she's designing to hold all of the inchies we've collected. Doesn't that sound like fun? Here's my group for this month.

Today was a wonderful inchie day. I received inchies from two swaps I participated in...and what sweet little works of art they are! The first group is from the monthly swap hosted by Joanne Wardle...you can check on the next swap at her site. Joanne made a beautiful card to house the inchies then she mounted them inside with a little square of chocolate (now eaten!) right in the middle. How fun!

Well, I have several swaps that I'm working on right now. Today I've finished the ATC's for the Red Lead Paperworks Valentine swap. One down ...three to go! I love Red Lead stamps and the group is such a fun one. I went for a sweet feel...so many of the Red Lead images are sweet and nostalgic. I hope they like them!
