Now it's Monday

Hello to one and all . Thank you for calling in to see me . Welcome to my room .
Here it is the 4th of July and Monday . If you are celebrating the day ..ENJOY!
Time for me to don my DT hat for Make it Monday .
Entries in the region of 170 odd in number, last week  . WOW ! Consistantly a high number of entries , in my opinion,  rates this blog  high on my list for sharing . Thank you to all who paticipate .
Congrats to another two winners for last week .
I am going straight to my pic of the week
Number 165.... SHIRLEY Now Shirley has other creations with these little friends and I particularly loved an earlier post of hers , " Friends April Showers " as well . You would not be bored if you paid her blog a visit , I promise .
Our sponsor this week is ..
                                                            4 digi images of winners choice
I have enjoyed this new experience of using digi images
since joining MIM as a DT member and here is my creation for this week .

I have used Glossy White as card base . I adhered some DSP to a piece of Old Olive card and together they were embossed with a floral embossing folder . Before placing this onto card I wrapped some jute ribbon around side and attached a metal brad. A diecut frame was used to frame this beautiful olde world wheel barrow and the sentiment added below .   So there you go it is time for you to think about your entry .I am really looking forward to blog hopping through the entries again this week .

When commenting on another’s MIM  entry don’t forget to mention that you saw it on MIM and the more entries you comment on in this way,   the more chances you have of winning.

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.


  1. What a beautiful card, Shirley. I love all the textures. Great choice for your favourite card too.

  2. Hi Mum

    Fabulous card, this image is so versatile. could be used for feminine or masculine cards depending on colours chosen. Would probably lend itself well to being masked with another image too.

    I love your favourite pick for this week. Shirley's colouring is fantastic and I love the pretty papers.
