It's a trend! I just didn't know it when I did it.

I completed this card over a week ago, but hadn't yet taken the photo of it. I got the idea from a card I saw here by Simonne Clay. Then, during the week I saw the same concept done here, and here. There is another one that is similar, with different squares here. I must have seen some of these before and they got into my subconscious, because I really wanted to play with monsters or aliens in little stitched squares. I used the double stitched square dies from Simon Says Stamp. Even the leftover scraps look good!

The monsters are all from The Alley Way Stamps--Phone Home, and Oogles, and the sentiment is from TAWS' Learning Curve set.

But I wasn't done there, I did this one, too.

 Because, well, chickens. Although I had some trouble deciding what my chicken(s) would say. In the end, miss you (from Lawnfawn's Chit Chat set) is quite generic. The chickens are from The Alley Way Stamps' Hard Boiled set.

As much as I love the idea of critters in squares, I really suck at lining them up nicely on the backing.  I have some more to color and use, so wish me luck, or better, more skill with a ruler. Please don't show these to your OCD friends.
