Ooooh, the shame of it!

This is like handing rotten homework in and then running for cover - my Less Is More challenge entry for this week - which is 'Doodling':
As you can see, I can't draw for toffee - but the wording makes me smile a bit.

I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card

- computer printed wording directly onto the card - you surely didn't expect me to write THAT free hand as well?!

- mouse (yup, it IS meant to be a mouse), cheese and little paw prints were hand drawn/doodled 

The mouse and paw prints are a throw back to my 'doodling in lessons' days at school - the wording is how my pal Helena always signs off her emails :)

I'm off to stand in the corner now!

Friday Feast will follow, again, just as soon as I find the recipe which is buried on my desk.

Hi Di

If it makes you feel any better .. I wouldn't be able to draw the cheese let alone a mouse!!!

I can't even draw a heart I like!! LOL!!!

So you can tell I am well impressed with your drawing skills and I love the little paw prints!!

Have a great day and a lovely weekend.

Love Jules xx

I think it is cute Di, not tried doodling except like you during lessons or boring lectures. Hugs, Amanda x

So cute Di. He's a fat little mouse so I guess he has already been at the cheese! I doodle when I am on the phone, but nothing recognizable. Well done. Kate x

Di, I think that is great drawing and it certainly looks like a mouse, all be that he has large feet but those are so he can wear clogs to clip-clippety-clop on the stairs! Right???

Love the card and sentiment :)

Take care Rach xx

A really fun card. Love the quote, well done with the drawing.

Your drawing is far better than mine would be, a very impressive card for the challenge, Di. My writing was computer generated as I cannot possibly write it freehand either. I like the look of that Pork and pasta recipe too, even though there are a lot of pots and pans involved. thank you for sharing it with us. xx Maggie
