ICADs for the week of July 18-24

Although I continue to have computer issues, it's Thursday and time to show my latest week's ICADs.

Last Friday I got my staples out and used four to show how fun it can be to bake cookies.

Sew, sew sew.  I love sewing disparate bits and pieces to ICs.  It's a fun way to get rid of my leftovers, since no piece is too small for these ICs.

I spent a LOT of time lining the fox up so it looked like s/he was peeking out from behind the tree.  One staple was used for this one.  I think I've mentioned how much I like this technique, so I look forward to more of these one staple wonders.

What can I say?  No scrap too small, no piece need go to the trash bin when it can be incorporated into an IC.  I think this one should be called the scrap house.

Just for fun, I created a dog house!  Bleubeard gave his approval.

Here's another single staple entry.  These are LOTS of fun, and I really enjoy this technique.

This one should have read "color, color."  I was drawn to the color when I saw it.  Instead, I had to find some sentiment, and this was the first thing that looked like it would go with the background.

Thanks for dropping by to see my latest set of ICs.  Just one week to go.  The end is truly in sight and my spirits are high.  How about you?  Are you keeping up?

What fun! Once again I'm taken by the one staple technique. I'm seriously going to play with that (one of these days).

Another great selection of cards Elizabeth - can you believe we're on the last week already? The one with the house and stitching wouldl be my fave but I like them all. I like the drycleaning tag one - I have some of those somewhere..! The colours in that last one are definitely brilliant. I am not big on crowds or getting "stuff" on me so I will just admire them on your card - LOL The cookie card made me hungry! Your one-staple collages are turning out great - Glad you're having fun with that. Hope your computer problems are behind you now - so frustrating!
