Tuesday Taggers ~ Jig saws

Hi Y'all

First of all apologies for being such a bad blogger, I have had so many nights without sleep, I'm pretty done in. I promise I will get round to say hi when I get back from a special treat.  My lovely sister in law is whisking me away for a couple of days to rest and recouperate. If your interested this is where I'm off to.  Jealous??

So this is going to be a very short post for Tuesday Taggers cos it's late and I've got to defluff before I go and bare all so here it is....



and here's it's box




And here's the jigsaw made up




Sorry they are not good pics, taken very late at night by a very tired crafter. Click on the pic to read the text.  I made it for a very special person who I spend many happy hours with.

So here's how

Mountboard
Stamped with an old PSX stamp
Coloured with water colour pencils
Inked with Stampin Up inks
Words stamped with mini alpha
(not happy with this - have to find a better way to add text)
Put through Cuttlebug with Jigsaw die

Simples!!!

And if you believe that you'll believe anything. Shan't tell you how many went in the bin before I got it right!

The DT samples on the TT Blog are truly amazing this week so do pop over and have a look and be inspired. Don't forget, we're not looking for amazing artwork, just wanting you to enjoy having a go at something that you would perhaps not normally attempt.

See you when I get back
x Michelle

Sounds like you are thoroughly in need of a bit of pampering, Michelle. Enjoy!!
Your jigsaw is fabulous, what a great idea this week on TT.

Hope you had a nice time away and are now feeling refreshed Michelle. I'm late with this comment because blogger didn't tell me about it - how naughty!

I'm glad I spied it though because it's wonderful. Such a lovely gift for that special person.
