Orange is the New Black..err...Inchie.

Hello Everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend.  As many of you know I tend to think abstractly when it comes to my inchie designs.  This week is no exception.  Over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is "Orange".  I wracked my brain on this weeks theme.  For a few weeks actually.  I mean do you do the color orange or AN orange?  Neither one screamed at me.  Then I remembered a shirt that I saw.

Woot Shirt
Knock Knock

Isn't this a cute shirt?  Do you remember this joke?  Don't you hate this joke!?!?  Yes to both of these!  LOL  I even saw somewhere online that this is the most hated joke EVER!  I believe it!  LOL.  But, I just could not get it out of my mind.  The issue of course is to how to translate that to an inch?  I think I did a good job on this one, don't you? 

I really love it.  Orange you glad?  Of course you are, mainly because I didn't ask the joke LOL.  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the awesome work done by the ladies this week.  Have a blessed week.

The Odd Man Out

This weeks theme over at Every Inchie Monday is Odd.  My first thought was to do all of the odd numbers that I could fit in an inchie.   I think that I did a good job of it.  What do you think? 

I used 2 colors of delicas, a opaque royal blue and opaque matte red.  I like the opposite finishes, a very odd combo indeed ;)  I was so excited to be able to get 1,3,5,7 and 9 in the inchie. 

Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the odd inchies over there.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a blessed and beady week.

A Special Navy Inchie

This weeks theme over at Every Inchie Monday is Navy.  My first thought was the USS Cole.  I used to know a lady whose Son lost his life on the USS Cole.  So I felt like I wanted to make an inchie that embodied the Cole and showed my admiration for the sacrifice of our Military .

For those of you who aren't familiar with the Cole, here is a bit of information on it.  You can follow the link to get more info about it. 

On the morning of Thursday, 12 October 2000, USS Cole docked in Aden harbor for a routine fuel stop.  Around 11:18 local time (08:18 UTC), a small craft approached the port side of the destroyer, and an explosion occurred, creating a 40-by-40-foot gash in the ship's port side.  The blast hit the ship's galley, where crew were lining up for lunch.  17 sailors were killed and 39 were injured in the blast.  The attack was the deadliest against a U.S. naval vessel since the Iraqi attack on the USS Stark on 17 May 1987.  The attack was organized and directed by the terrorist organization al-Qaeda, led by Osama bin Laden who boasted about the attack and encouraged similar attacks.

President Bill Clinton declared, "If, as it now appears, this was an act of terrorism, it was a despicable and cowardly act. We will find out who was responsible and hold them accountable".

I pray for the families who have lost a loved one in the military and I pray for all of those brave Men and Women who fight for our freedom.

Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great artwork from this week's awesome artists. Have a blessed and creative day.

Don't Be So Negative!

This week's theme over at Every Inchie Monday is "negative".  After a long time trying to think about what to do I finally settled with a negative symbol.  I just could not figure out what to do.  Then when I saw all the cool idea's of the ladies at EIM i was surprised at all the ways they went about the theme.  Great job everyone. 

Don't forget to fly on over to EIM to see all the awesome ideas they came up with.  So, see you until next week when I hope I can be more creative.  Have a blessed and creative week.
