A MOUSE AND MAKE IT MONDAY



Hello Everyone....

Another  weekend is over and we are sliding into December real fast..

Back to work this morning, but at least I managed to get plenty of craft time this weekend, so that made me happy..plus cat sitting again..poor cat is missing his Mum...so I made sure I stayed there with him and played silly cat games for an hour or so...or until he got bored....he needed a mouse to play with....but this is all I had to offer him..



And he wasn't impressed at all...

This week we are being sponsored by MELJEN DESIGNS ...

 




and I was able to play with this little guy...SKIING MOUSE  .....

I coloured my little mouse with Faber Castell pencils....



Glossy accents on the ice cube....and fussy cut him out to add to this pre coloured background...a freebie from a magazine...'forever friends'...



Made a long card this time and added a MB tree....very simple easy card...




For my POTW [Pick of the Week]....I chose this gorgeous card from #190 GRACE 


Beautiful Cardinals..I love the red against the white,and beautiful colouring.. Thanks for sharing with us Grace..



So please pop over to MAKE IT MONDAY ...check out my teamies great projects, check our who won last week, check our the prize for this week..so much to see..then link up everything you make this week, or link up everything you made last week...we dont mind, as long as paper has been used...

I'm off...nearly time for work...have a fantastic week...ad will see you over at MIM>>

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi Chrissy, I hope your Monday is off to a great start. I am getting ready to head to bed. Much like you I feel like it was just Friday and the weekends go all too quickly. I know, complain complain complain... However I am not looking forward to the stresses of the Holidays this year. I just feel that it is coming too too quickly. I do however love your little mouse on his ice cube. This is just adorable. What kind of cat are you catsitting? I think it is wonderful of you to try and play with him while his mommy is gone. I know that Lucy gets down in the dumps when I am gone a lot. You should have seen me trying to color today while she wanted to sit in my lap or be on top of all my supplies and my cutter. For some reason it just doesn't work that well. lmbo... I hope you have a wonderful week my friend. I have a goal of getting around to my friends each day this week. Keep your fingers crossed for me. hahaa... Hugs, Lisa
