Tig & Mo

 Hello! 

I hope you had a good weekend and your week started well, it did here with sunshine and warm weather

Today's cards feature some new characters Tig and Mo. Well, you saw Mo in my previous post, this is her best friend Tig


Tig lives in an old tin can and whilst the rain is not ideal (it causes rust) at least it brings fresh leaves which create a shelter from the litter pickers, as long as the snails doesn't eat too much.  Tig and Mo have had various homes, old shoes, coffee cups and even a french fries box complete with an outer bag. But somehow the litter pickers find them and that's that.
Lock down has been hard on the mice, certainly not as much food around that's for sure and the pesky pigeons swoop in whenever there's a find.
 

 Now there is a little more freedom, Tig called on Mo and suggested that the first sunny day they have, they would go down to the beach. Everything is better at the beach and who knows what they may find  That's if they can remember the way...

Two days later, armed with a towel and a parasol, they set off. They hadn't gone far when they came across a piece of discarded chocolate.. Joy of joys! They never understood why humans threw away so much stuff not that they're complaining, it kept them fed and chocolate was a favourite. This piece had a nut right in the middle so starting at opposite ends they chomped away until the nut came free. With full bellies they rolled up the precious nut in the towel for a lunchtime treat


This was going to be a good day they decided.

 

I hope you all have a good day too...

Till soon

Oh my sweet friend, these creations are FABULOUS and I LOVED the stories to go with them ... truly made my morning!! You are so talented in so many ways!
We here in Ohio, USA with everything popped out in spring bloom received 3-4" of snow over night ... grrr! Though beautiful, it sure makes it difficult on those tender spring buds. But Mother Nature is in control and we must go along with her decisions.
Have a wonderful week and thanks again for lovely card inspiration and truly creative stories to go with ... awesome job! HUGS

Greta said...

You are such a great storyteller, Ros! The paintings are whimsical & so cute! Glad you had some warmer weather!

Oh, what fun, and such a sweet pair! Love the story which, again, reminds me of the chalk talks from my youth. I thought at first that Mo was the snail and I was thinking that he would have a hard time keeping up with Tig. Both cards are just so darn cute!

Happy to meet Tig and Mo - I wish they had taken me along to the beach with them, I could do with some salty air and the sound of the waves!
