Little Mouse - MIM

Hello Everyone....our weather turned around and we had a lovely day for Mothers Day...and yes, took Harry out, but we walked....and walked....with all theG/kids as well..had morning tea first at my daughters,then off we went..
And later in the afternoon...a new washing machine arrived from my kids...I was so happy as mine gave up the ghost about a week ago...with a thunk...clunk..and an awful whirring noise.[was 40 yrs old..lol..]

So now, I'm a happy camper, and my dog is knackered.

This week at MAKE IT MONDAY  we ar sponserd by..






Meljen Designs Digital Stamps are giving away the lovely prize of the winner's choice of 4 single digis!


and I have a cute we fellow to share with you....



A very simple card, very......the papers were from a search on the net  for jig-saw papers and printed on computer paper, edges inked....added some hesian and ribbon....



My "little puzzle mouse" was coloured with pencils and the shape was made using my 1" punch upside down, and just punched out a puzzle piece....



Side view, and the inside is decorated too.....

Congratulations to the winners from last week, and I have picked a favourite too.....



KIM #201   I think this is so cute, and love fences, so it got my vote....
Thanks for sharing Kim, fabulous card....

So that's us all done...that went fast....must be getting better at posting, or my brain is functioning better these colder mornings...

Have a fabulous week, and lets start the party...old or new projects , we dont mind, as long as it has paper...

And dont forget Michelle the boss of MIM, is doing a "meet the MIM team" on her blog every Tuesday...lots of fun...

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi Chrissy, I am so happy for your that your kids bought you such a wonderful gift. How sweet are they? I love that you had nice weather to walk in today. We had a beautiful day as well, but I didn't think we should walk around until the Dr. tells us what we have. Needless to say I was able to ger 4 cards made today and as of lately that is a record for me. lol... I love your little puzzle mouse. He is just too stinkin cute! I also love the way you made him look like he was framed by a big piece os cheese. Have a wonderful Monday. Hugs ,Lisa

Chrissy this is such a beautiful card and I know that you say it is simple but I have to say that it is amazing! The colouring, the jigsaw background and the use of hessian, ribbon and staples really appeals to my tactile nature. Thanks for inspiring.
