Introverting, or Physical Distancing

We should all be staying away from each other these days. Which raises a question. Is it introverting,  or physical distancing? Maybe physical distancing is what we introverts did, before it was mandated! Ha ha! Whatever you want to call it, I’m sure I’ll still be doing it even after this pandemic is over.  Anyway, I had so much fun with the Impression Obsession stamp set called Introverting yesterday, that I made another card! If you missed yesterday’s card, you can see it HERE.


I howled with laughter (and a bit of guilt) when I read this sentiment! It’s so very me! Please tell me I’m not the only one who ‘doesn’t see’ someone in the mall, or store? It’s not that I don’t like that person – I’m just not feeling ‘people-y’ that day, and don’t feel like small talk. So, if you’ve noticed me NOT noticing you – it’s really not you, it’s me!

Introverting, or Physical Distancing

See – there’s a heart above the kitty’s head. He loves you, and thanks you for pretending to not see him 🙂


My husband, who would never ‘not see’ someone, didn’t get the humour in this card AT ALL. It’s amazing we’ve been together for 26 years! Not surprisingly, I send him to the store more often than I venture out *wink*

Start with a piece of white cardstock, set up in your stamp platform. Line up the Peek-a-Boo Kitty image and sentiment stamps from the Introverting set, so that you have enough room for both. I wanted the cat to look like he was peeking out from behind a door or wall. Stamp the cat image in Memento ink, and the sentiments in dark purple ink. Now, remove the cardstock from your stamp platform.

Before colouring, use a ruler and black marker to connect the line to the bottom and top of the paper. Next, colour in the cat with markers. I chose EB1 Sand and EB2 Natural Brown Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers, and FS6 Cream for the cat. The pink ears are done with the Tri Blend Bright Pink marker, using the light end.  For the heart, I chose a Copic Lipstick Red marker.

Onto a neutral card base, glue on a strip of purple cardstock to the left. Next, attach the card front using fun foam or foam tape. That’s it! Your card is done! Simply, fun and funny!

I think it’s very cute. Not everyone will understand, but that’s okay. Not everyone understands us introverts!


I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today, and that your week is going well.  Let me know what  you think -just a quick comment, or even a hello, so I know that you’ve seen this post.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)
