MMSC45 Humpty Dumpty Sat on the Wall

Good morning my friends~
 I have to share with you that the first time Priscilla revealed the MMSC45 sketch to us, the first and only thing that popped into my mind was humpty dumpty.  Once it got in there, it would not leave, so I had to tweak the sketch just a tiny bit to fit my idea and then to life this image came to be. 
I did not have a humpty dumpty image to work with, so you are viewing my own hand-drawn image for this one.  It is not officially a digi print, just my own drawing that I printed out to work with.  I did pop the image for dimension and created my own broken egg as a closure on the handmade box envelope that was made with our own hostess and sponsor this month Pricillastyles envelope kit.  I love using her envelope kits.  They are so easy to use, and some of the styles are so creative and beautiful.  Stop over to her store to see some gorgeous examples of what they can look like.   I would like to thank our weekly sponsor this week too.  Michelle's Scrapbooking...Home of the Pixie Cottage Stamps as well as many other popular images and supplies.  Hope you will give them a visit too and see all the goodies they have to offer.

Congrats to our MMM and MMR winners this week:

#2 Ms. Plum

Gorgeous work. Well deserved!

 There are some very exciting things going on at the MMSC blog, so pop over there to get updated on all of the excitement   ... from a DT call to Awesome Blog Candy and believe it or not.......A CRAFTING CRUISE!!!   The fun never ends with the Midnight Madness Gang.

Thanks for dropping by for a visit with me today.  I hope you enjoyed your stay and that maybe I have inspired you in some way to play with us.  It is a very fun sketch that really makes you think.  I can't wait to see the entries this week. 

Hugs and blessings to all of my blog friends and thank you kindly for any comments left for me.  I look forward to hearing from you : )

I hope Humpty Dumpty sits safely on your great brick wall. I always find it so sad when he falls down.
This card is soo cool! I love how you made the flowers grow up the wall and the "gras" at the bottom of it.
