whohoo ~ another scrappin happy day! although it's raining, windy and a lil chilly out there...it's still a scrappin happy day! i did up that inchie for this week's challenge over at Something Completely Different. it's all about *faces* this week. check it out ladies...there's so much inspiration over there. and if ya feel like trying your hand at doing an inchie ~ we'd love you to join in! also there's a couple of christmas cards i did up this week. something simple and fun! i've been kinda pre-occupied with dh going in for his upcoming surgery. whoa...this is the 7th surgery in almost 3 years! ACK! so needless to say it's been takin up space in my head. i feel like my scrappy ability has gone out the window! can't concentrate too much on makin something big! anyhoo, he goes in thurs mornin. so...can ya all say a lil prayer for his recovery and health...it would be so appreciated. this surgery is to remove a screw that got misplaced in his shoulder when his accident happened, to clean out the rotator cuff and possibly to chip away at some bone and stretch a muscle/nerve. it's been a long haul since his initial accident and the amputation of his arm. so...yep..i'm a lil preoccupied. so with all that said ~ i won't be gettin scrappy happy for the next week or so...but, i'll be takin my laptop with me to the mainland and will be poppin in to say hi in blogland and checkin out all your beautiful creations. take care ~ and lots of hugz!

hope all ya chickies are havin a *sunny* scrappin happy day! whoa..it's been raining buckets here for the past two days. yep...................it's feeling awful soggy out there! anyhoo, i've been in and out today and snuck in some scrappy time. i did the inchie for this week's challenge over at Something Completely Different. the theme this week is black and white. sorry for the pic ~ those lil inchies are hard to snap a pic of. once i finished my inchie ~ i used the same stamp (full version) and re-created the inchie (well, as close to it as i could) in full size onto a card ~ and added the inchie as a final touch. the inchie and card are layered to give a 3D effect. juz click on the pics and ya can see a close up shot. thankx to the ladies over at SCD for all their inspiration. i'm sure lovin these challenges.
