Odd, Houses, or Maybe Just Odd Houses

     My days of endless creativity are fast fading.  Insert crying.  I do get so spoiled by having the time to just draw and paint and such.  I won't miss those challenges I love, I will just be much slower in getting them up. 
     Every Inchie Monday's word this week is "odd".  My first thought was Odd Thomas, a character in several of Dean Koontz's books.  But I am not a huge fan of that series and I wasn't sure how to represent it, so I went with a much more common interpretation - odd numbers.  I stamped them on my inchie and them helped them out with some color from my gel pens.  Plain but I sort of like it.
     I am loving the challenges over at Whimsy and Zen.  Last week we had to draw a garden.  This week our challenge was to do houses.  I knew the moment I read it what I wanted.  (I love it when that happens).  I enjoy playing with stacks.  I have several houses pinned on my Pinterest board - whimsical ones.  I decided to combine the two and make a "High Rise".
High Rise
    Quite honestly, I love that one.  I debated a bit over whether to color it or not, but decided to just go black and white.  Great template, Kelly and lots of fun!
     Just a few shots of my "guy".  Isn't he the prettiest thing?  Okay I know I am prejudiced, but really you have to agree!  One hundred and ten pounds of major spoiled BABY.

     Thanks for dropping by and leaving me some sunshine.  Have a blessed day!!


  1. That is one gorgeous high rise stack! I love the shading you did on that. I started following the blog you referred to (I have discovered heaps of good blogs thanks to you). Inchie is adorable. But your baby takes the prize! You are not prejudiced, he is stunning!

  2. I like how you've added colour to the numbers. We all seem to have had the same idea this week! The houses are simply gorgeous. I love whimsical houses too and have part of a board on pinterest devoted to them too.. What a gorgeous dog! woof. What breed is he/she?

  3. These are super. I love the numbers - and I'd really like to visit that house!

  4. I, who lives on Tangle Street, LOVE your houses! (And, of course the inchie and the adorable dog.)

  5. I love the detail in your inchie, the numbers and the border, great job and the house looks like so much work! I agree your little guy is adorable. Great work on all this week

  6. Nice job on your Inchie! Your 'High Rise' is amazing!! I love your trees. I'm trying to think of the tangle you used for the leaves. I've seen it before but wouldn't of thought of that for trees. It's perfect!! And now for your 'little' guy, He is gorgeous!!! In that side view pic, his face looks like a man's face with a beard!! Very distinguished!! Hugs to him!!! :0) Share Humanity

  7. The High Rise is a masterpiece I couldn't stop looking at it.
