Some more friends I made on holiday!!!

Aren't they cute!
(The one on the end reminds me of Harvey) :0)

This is another stamp I bought at Sir Stampalot on the way to Norfolk!
It's a Whipper Snapper stamp called 'Welcome Waggin'.

I've not really had a lot of time to play with all the goodies, (apart from the Tilda card I made), that I brought back with me, as I've still had lots of admin' stuff to do for mum. I think it's nearly all sorted now and I can get back to concentrating on my cards.

I did this for the OCC challenge. To use a border punch on your card.

As you can see, I kept it simple and just used my SU scalloped border punch to jazz up the bottom of the matt.
I plopped a dot of white ink on each scallop to mirror the shine on the noses of the doggies.

The sentiment, (Papermania's Claire Curd signature range), is punched out with my SU oval border punches. The three blue pearls provide balance.
Coloured with Copics, with the background sponged with Tim Holtz distress inks... Broken China and Pine Needles.

Hope you like my new friends! Please leave a comment to let me know. ;0)
