Sometimes life's a puzzle

Although I'm not feeling brilliant, I'm trying to take my mind off my aches and pains. I was looking through some of my craft stuff and came across some jigsaws - pearlescent card, which I'd already run through my xyron ready to use ... ages OK and forgot about them. 

I got out a large carabelle  studio zentangle stamp (bought ages OK and I confess it's never been used till today), inked with versamarkand put the jigsaw on to the middle and then heat embossed with black detail powder.

Before mounting on the black card I took out three pieces and generated the wording with my dymo letratag.

It's hard to see on the photo, but irl you can see that there are jigsaw pieces making up the whole piece.

I used to blog every day, but for ages now have got into the habit of only blogging for my own Christmas weekly challenge and my monthly patterned paper one. I'm going to try and blog more with other things. So this is a bit of a fresh start.
