Inchies RULE!

"Inchies RULE!" this week and were the subject of a couple challenges recently - both SplitCoastStampers' SC182 sketch and Hero Arts blog all this past week (I LOVE their blog!). En route to finishing an album project yesterday I stopped by CAM to meet up w my buddy Pat J and during breaks on THAT project, spotted this absolutely gorgeous family of 2-sided designer cardstocks. I used 3 different designs for today's card - one dotted, one paisley, and one a leaf pattern print. Muted shades of blues and greens, it's also all cardstock (no DP), the subject of one of Colleen's recent Thursday Throwdown challenges.

This one's intended for my DH when I give him his Sudoku puzzles tomorrow morning. Even tho' we're both retired computer programmers, he generally waits on me to print his weekly dose on Sundays. Interesting how we fall into routines, eh?! I generally print the Arcamax Publishing and USA Today puzzles, then sit back to watch Sunday Morning on CBS. If he's in Sudoku withdrawal between weekends, he can fall back on a mile-high pile we've accumulated from our local paper! My buddy Lynn got me hooked on these, and I in turn hooked him ... guess that makes this an "enabler post" - LOL!
