I took some time Saturday in between making crescent rolls and pork tenderloin to make a card for Lydia's "Pixellated" challenge over at Splitcoaststampers - the challenge was to make a card using at least 3 colored squares. I've had this idea in my head for almost a month now and wanted to use it on a card for Hope You Can Cling To but didn't have time before the deadline. The squares I used are Inchie Plus Squares (1-1/2" squares) from Inchie Arts - these high quality matboard squares are a DREAM to color on with alcohol markers - no bleeding at all! I stamped Cover-a-Card Roses from Impression Obsession on the squares, then colored them up using Touch Twin Markers. Inchie Arts makes matboard squares in 3 sizes - the Inchies (1"), Inchie Plus Squares (1-1/2"), and Twinchies (2") - and a variety of colors (black, dark gray, light gray, wheat, dark cream, ivory and white).

The sentiment is from one of my sets from Our Daily Bread designs - I don't usually mix companies when I blog, but I wanted this to be a special 'thank you' card, and I just really needed to use that sentiment! These are the Touch Twin markers that I used...
Wow... we are within 3 weeks of our trip... I've been thinking ahead (not always calmly) to our adjustment back into American culture... it's been 3-1/2 years since we were in the States last and soooo much has changed... not only that, but we have changed as well. I'm still holding on to my word for the year, "TODAY"... trusting the Lord and just taking one day at a time. Appreciate your prayers as we barrel through these next few weeks! I still have some big projects to finish up.

Hope you have a great week!

Thanks for stopping by!
