Dottie's World and Sketch Saturday

Afternoon everyone. What a lovely day it is today, glorious sunshine and quite warm too! The children both returned to school today after being unwell since Thursday! I'm now relishing a bit of peace and tranquility, catching up on some crafting! I've another two challenge card, this one's for

Sketch Saturday - Sketch

and

Dottie's World



The challenge over on Dottie's World this week, was set by Nicole and she wants to see the colours Red, White and Black. Of course, a Charmed download must be included! For this I've used the scruffy pup from the Charming Xmas download collection. Isn't he cute! Actually,my golden retriever Murphy, was the inspiration here, as he nicked Ethan's sandwich bag off the worktop this morning, there's NOOO way I could leave meat unattended when he's around!!


I've used my new punch I only bought yesterday and some bling I've been dying to use! Underneath the silver brad is a black punched snowflake. The pawprint is a stamp made by a local crafter I've known quite a few years and she's now set up in business with her own rubber stamp designs, - certainly one to keep an eye on!!!
