Sketch Saturday # 286 / a gift for you

having a crafty day today and enjoying the sunshine that is back after our much needed rain :) of course the first thing i checked today was what the new challenge Hazel has for us on Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge,
this week it is "For a child". i made our grandsons card with a gift card holder inside to hold his Target gift card. the boy is almost 5 and he loves Target!! lol



*gift card is for photo only as i have not picked his target one up yet*
trying out the new toy and i think i need to dig out my tripod so i can get level photos!! Annette and Calypso  both told me about a light box they have and recommend. so hubby said to get it as it would take up less room and give me more light. OK he told me to get it as i wanted it!! lol he is so sweet in supporting my "habit" :)

linking up with:
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge

*time is almost up to try out for next years DT*

Adorable card Rose. Love that owl.
Is the new light box all you thought it would be compared to the other two you own?
