Anything But A Card!

I'm so far behind this week, not sure what's happened! I'm usually soooooooo organised, but with having Nige & the girlies off this week has just totally thrown me!! Thankfully all back to normal on Monday.......don't get me wrong I love having them around & always miss them when their gone, they just mess my routine up so much! lololol!!

Anyhoos on with my MAWTT DT creation for this week, yeah it was meant to be posted yesterday! Sorry girls I did get it finished yesterday but the light was rubbish by the time I finished. So I decided instead of taking a few pants pics I would wait until today......this weeks challenge is

ANYTHING BUT A CARD!

mmmmm I hate these sorts of challenges, I never know what to do! So after lots of thinking & scratching my head I came up with this!! Which has now been pinched & is upstairs with Katie along with another gazillion craft things she keeps pinching! lol!!

This is my original image coloured! After I had coloured her in Nige took a photo for me which is what I used for my box lid!

I then cut the original image into pieces using Jenson (my Ecraft)!


I then got Nige to put my jigsaw together, just to make sure it all fitted!
Had loads of fun making this, loved colouring in Teri's image, a dream to colour!
