Hello Everyone....

Yes!.. it is a sad day as this is our last MAKE IT MONDAY 

It has been a fantastic journey and my very first DT all those years ago and have loved every minute of it.
I have worked with a fabulous group of ladies..a wonderful boss Michelle and enjoyed hoping around and commenting on all the wondeful paper projects you have all shared over the years..I will miss MIM and all of you so much.

But for this week at least we are still here and have a fabulous fun sponsor Lee Holland

I was given this cute little image to play with..Boy With Present

Isn't he cute..I coloured his hair and skin with Faber Castell pencils...paper pieced  his clothes and gift..and coloured the bow with a red copic.

There he is...the fabulous papers are from Rosies Studio..'Boys and their toys"

The corner details and wooden frog are from my stash....

Added some squiggle lines and decorated the inside too..

For my POTW [pick of the week]..I chose this fun card from #160 LOZ

This one really tickled my fancy...thanks for sharing Loz...

So there we go..look forward to seeing you over at MIM for one last time and hope you have a fantastic week..

Thanks ever so much for stopping to the DR's this afternoon for the dressings to be removed..a tetanus shot and a check up...I have been very good resting...watched 3000 movies [well felt like that]..and so unlike me to put my bum down for a length time..but I did it...and really I do feel so much better for the rest..7 days a week working can catch up on you can't it.

Hopefully I can see you tomorrow..

Can I come and sulk with you Chrissy? Still sad as I visit the DT blogs for the last MIM Linky Party but that's life! There is something wrong with your link above your card on the blog. Won't come here! Love your super card and all the paper piecing... fabulous!
A fun POTW from Loz
Catch you some time.

Loz creates great fun cards and is worthy of POTW.

I'm really going to miss MIM! You've done such a great job as DTs, encouraging people to leave others some love. I've also enjoyed seeing your POTW. I've met many of my wonderful blog friends and followers on MIM, thanks for that
I'm sure I'm going to continue seeing lots of beautiful work from your end, as DT or as an entrant on other challenges, I'm a keen follower:)

Was so sad to hear this news over at Lisa's... MIM was one of the first and friendliest places I shared my creations, and I've always looked forward to your makes and your picks on Mondays.

What a sweet farewell card, and a lovely final POTW.

So glad to hear the news on your recovery too!
