Inchie Card

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Winter seems to have returned to us. It was cold and snow flurries off and on today. But, I am holding to the 8 days until spring.

Our tulips are coming up and the deer and rabbits are showing interest. My hubby was out in his gardens spraying a deer & rabbit repellent yesterday. They don't like the smell and its a fertilizer for the tulips. It's the only way we get to have the flowers we do.

I also talked with the travel agent today to plan our summer vacation. I am getting excited because we want to do something different with my son, daughter-in-law and grandsons this year. We want to go to the Caribbean or to Riviera Maya in Mexico to an all-inclusive resort. We will see how this works out for all of us.

Now onto my card for today. This inchie I made for the Birds and Bees VSN on Splitcoaststampers. We were to create a card using inchies. I used some designer paper from the American Crafts "backyard tweet" collection. I cut it into 1" squares an lined up the images so the birdcages matched top and bottom.

I used a Cheery Lynn Designs die to cut a flourish and a Tim Holtz die for my bird. The sentiment is from the Stampin-Up set "language of friendship". Well it's getting late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.

Other challenges I am entering:
1.  Celebrate The Occasion has a spring is in the air challenge.
2.  Incy Wincy Designs has a "things that begin with "F" challenge. I used a flourish, friendship in sentiment-birds and they have feathers.
3Paper Playtime has an anything goes challenge.
4.  That Craft Place has an anything goes.


  1. I like your inchies card, Mary. Love the way you used the green flourish on top to tie it all together. We usually do a vacation with one of my dh's daughters and family. It's fun, particularly when you are exploring a new place together.

  2. This is a really cool design for your card, Mary! It is always fun to plan a vacation – sounds like this will be a great adventure for you all :-)
