CHARISMA CARDZ - Challenge #16 A Sketch by Claire

As we had nothing much to do yesterday, my OH and I took a trip to one of our local craft stores - of course I had to buy something and I couldn't resist buying the Fiskars Scalloped Lace border punch, even though I have told myself countless time that I don't need it!

I really enjoyed making this card following the sketch on this week's Charisma Cardz.




This image makes me think of my little boy and our dog. They are best of friends at the moment and love playing in the garden chasing balls.

I think next time I visit the craft shop I will be buying a Jumbo Retro Flower punch and a leaf punch - I would have used both for this card if I had them, but I guess part of the fun of crafting is the 'make do' element.

The flowers have little beads at the centres, but I don't think this shows in the photo.

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.

Thank you for looking.
