I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    I love the icad challenge, it was a favorite endeavor. I am busy writing through the Summer so cannot do it this year. So much creativity. Do you sleep? I am always amazed at all of the awesome you pull together here. Thanks as always. My time just is so much less on the computer these days…but thanks for making it inspiring!

      I loved following your ICAD challenge in years past, Dawn, so disappointed that you’re not able to do it this year but I certainly understand busy! Was so happy that Nalia Moon reminded me of this year’s challenged – it’s taken me 5 years to work through all of my blocks to give this a try!

      Do you know that I went to the office store yesterday – bought my cards- only to get home to discover that the index cards I bought (all 500 of them because I couldn’t get a smaller pack of 4 x 6 blank cards, which is what I wanted – are NOT the traditional thick index cards of our youth but thin blank pieces of paper? Yuck!

      Made my first card – the “title” card – but haven’t decided what I’m going to do about this “cheapie” deck as of yet (cheap paper is one of my pet peeves – lol!)

    OH and as always my love to the boys!

  8. Thanks for hosting again, love the necklace display card, and the Pinwheels, I could use those to scare away the 1-20 pigeons that frequent my patio and make a mess.

    Have a great week!

  9. Bev says:

    I am joining in and crating an ICAD – such fun and really does get a habit of daily creating jumpstarted.

  10. I love the fun summery colors in your card, and Magellan looks precious sitting by the window. Blessings, my friend!
