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.



  1. Cute card, it's better than I could do....

  2. Oh thats such fun Di. I love it.

  3. 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

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

  5. 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

  6. Awww, love this. Poor little first mouse.

  7. Err . . . well . . . it's better than I could do, I assure you! That's why I STAMP!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  8. 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

  9. Fabulous card Di ,, no shame in this !! the mouse is adorable and the cheese and paw prints are fab ! you did a brilliant job with the doodling !! :-)

    Lols x x x

  11. A cute card Di and I do love the quote that you have added!

    Hugs, Karen xx

  12. Anyone who attempts to "draw" their card is a winner! Love your cute mouse and cheese..and the quote!

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

  14. 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

  15. Di, l think you have done a brilliant job on your doodling and great for the challenge:)x

  16. It must be late, it took me a while to get the sentiment... but I got there in the is funny!
    Cute card too.
    Thanks so much
    "Less is More"

  17. This is brilliant Di. So funny. Great

  18. Yep. Looks like a mouse to me or could it be a stunted rat!!!! Very true saying. Love it. hugs mrs A.
