This one was so intricate it drove me crazy. I tried out numerous background colors and decided on this brown. In retrospect, I probably should have used black, but I thought there would be too much of that color. My mistake was waiting until the end to put the background color in. After that, it was too late to change it.

There's a size for everyone, so I hope you enjoy it. Thanks to my Jigidi friend for creating a great painting of Tootsie.

Thanks much, Hester. I'm glad you liked it, you speedy thing.


really cute, Gail! :-))


Awww, Kirsten, thanks so much for the compliment. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I had a blast creating it, even if it took me close to a week on and off to create it.

Well, hello there, SBF. You're so very welcome.


Cute and fun puzzle. Thanks!


Oh, Gail! You're work TOTALLY paid off on this one!! I LOVE how it turned out!! SO whimsical, and beautiful. I love all the elements of it. Thanks so much! (•‿•)


I had a lot of fun creating this, Sandi. It was probably as much a challenge to create it as it was to solve it. Thanks for letting me know.

Hi Chrissie, I probably should have put some musical notes above the smiling flowers. I always think of these things after the fact. Always a day late and a dollar short...

HIITSME, I've been out of school for 45 years, but I remember how difficult it always was to get back into that rhythm. You're very welcome, and thanks for letting me know you enjoyed it.

Great fun, and back to school is never easy.. Thanks for posting as always


This background works well with the highly colourful and intricate design. You chose well. My favourite part is the centre right - the smiling flowers :-) Thanks, Gail.


It was a challenge for sure, but great fun, Gail. I think the brown background is fine. Black would have been way too dark. I enjoyed it, especially the little people. Thanks for creating it.


I am so relieved you enjoyed this one, Joanne. When I saw what it looked like in the thumbnail, I thought to myself, oh no, people aren't even going to open it up. I hope you enjoy whatever other sizes you choose. Thanks so much for letting me know what you think of it.


It's great! Thanks, Gail. I'm going to try the other sizes when the sun goes away from the room :-)
