Every Inchie Monday - Question

I thought and thought on this week's challenge word at Everyinchiemonday as I didn't want to just do a question mark.  My husband suggested making a little book with Quiz book written on which I thought was brilliant but I have already done a poetry book so I wanted something different and then I thought of the most famous quotation about question from Shakespeare's Hamlet so here it is - I hope you can decipher it!!!

Hope you have a lovely week - by the way we had a brilliant Christmas decorating weekend with all the kids and grandkids and now have two beautifully decorated Christmas trees!!  Thanks for dropping by and any comments you leave.

Every Inchie Monday - Lighting

Well we are at week 47!  So near to Christmas it's making me edgy and the children are all coming this weekend to decorate the Christmas trees which are still pretty much wrapped up still in the attic!!  So I have my work cut out for me this week!!  With so many people here (12 in all with children and us) and decorations galore everywhere and feeding them all ....  I feel exhausted just thinking about it!!  Anyway this weeks challenge word on EMI is Lighting.  It's always hard trying to transpose a word into a picture especially one that is one inch square!  So I threw the word out to my family and someone came back with a "lighthouse" and that really appealed to me - what better way of portraying lighting - a light to keep ships from dangerous rocks and waters.  Here is my inchie which I feel is a bit dull as it's supposed to be at night but hopefully you can see what it is.
I hope you all have a much more relaxing week than I'm going to have!!  Thank you for all the lovely comments I get back it makes it all worth while.

Every Inchie Monday - Wormhole

Sorry I missed yesterday as was out all day but better late than never as they say.  This week's challenge word at Everyinchiemonday is Wormhole!!  Peculiar choice but then if it appears in Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy then it's totally acceptable!!  I could only think of a worm popping his head out of the ground!  So that's what I've done! 

But there are some brilliant interpretations at EMI so please click the link to view them. 

I have also been a busy bee this weekend and made a couple of cards for grandchildren whose birthdays are in November, I bought a few cheap dies from China on eBay - mind you I had to wait for them to arrive - but I've had great fun devising cards to use them on so here they are too. 
Many thanks for visiting and your comments. I can't seem to write below the pictures, my blog page isn't allowing me to - it also won't put the pictures where I want them - side by side.  Never mind hope you all have a lovely week.

Every Inchie Monday - Cloud

Well I've been so late doing these inchies that I did this one about three weeks ago.  Today's challenge word on Every Inchie Monday is Cloud and I had a fancy to do it in felting - so I had a go.  What came to mind when I thought of this word were the first lines from Wordsworth's poem - "I wandered lonely as a cloud!"  Of course the rest goes on, "That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils;" So basically that's what I tried to portray but my cloud was a bit obscure so I tried to lift it and make it more obvious but the more I tampered with it the worse it got - so this is how I left it!

Many thanks for viewing and any comments you leave.  And don't forget to click the link to see more inchies.
