Inchie Art Challenge - Happy & Caring

Inchie art is so much fun to create and play...whether your inchies are 1" squares, 1" circles, twinchies (2"), or thrinchies (3"), it is fun way to try new techniques. I made card from my inchies, 'cause that's what I like to do! I used a CM corner rounder on opposite corners for interest.

This weekend I have made an effort to use my extras and leftovers. When I stamp an image to put on a card, I will sometimes stamp an extra or two in case I make a mistake. The little heart button is a lonely leftover from an old kit, as are the Making Memories rub-ons I used "happy bliss HEART'S DESIRE." Yesterday my mosquito is an extra I had stamped for a card from March 27, 2009 and even the punched heart border was a leftover from my June 2, 2010 post. I have a pencil box full of little extras and I am sort of challenging myself to look through it before making a card :)

I combined three challenges for today's card:
Every Inchie Monday - Caring
365 - Word of the Day "Happy"
Design Divas Jan/Feb challenge - Inchies

Hope you and the family are well and a Happy New Year a bit late from me. I love your inchie card, so cute and well done on using up your leftovers, I must try to do that more. Hugs, Chris
