I used a nestie to cute the aperture out from behind by making slits at the side of the image

Nikki Walks The Dogs... Sketch Saturday #211

Morning Sketchers... I really can't believe it's Saturday already... have loved the 3 day work at week I even had to double check I didn't have to go into work this morning... Anyhow, time for another fabulous sketch over at Sketch Saturday ... Here it is...

And my little card...

Not one of my favourites cards made, but my bro asked me to make a card for his friend Lisa with dogs on and since I really am a cat person this was the only stamp I had.... love the stamp, not sure about the card though!! I think it is because the stamping card was so white though!!

This weeks challenge is sponsored by our friends at Simon Says Stamp! with a very generous $25 gift certificate for our lucky challenge winner to spend on goodies in the SSS store!
