Round and Round... aka Geeky Fun!! ;)

Hello everyone!! :)

I'm back with a card for this week's LiM where the challenge is entitled Round and Round... so we need to use circles... pretty simple!! :) Although, saying that, this is not my initial idea... but I was sat at my desk playing with some glasses die cuts I'd cut a few weeks ago and not had chance to use yet when it struck me that this idea would fit the challenge perfectly... and- being the utter Harry Potter geek I am!!! :) - I just had to do it that second...

I have to say, uber-simple as it is, this card makes me *soooooo* happy!!!! :) Told you I'm a HP geek!! lol

The words are the spell to cast a Patronus Charm in the HP books... which, if you haven't read them (or seen the movies!) casts a physical embodiment of positive energy in the form of an animal (the person's Patronus) to protect them and others from the soul-sucking, evil Dementors :) So I thought this would be a perfect Good Luck/Thinking of You type card for a fellow HP geek!! :)
The words were created from an alpha stamp set and I hand drew the lightning scar :)

While this won't fit the challenge, I also made this at the same time and thought I'd share it in the same post... 

I don't normally go for puns in my cards although I like them in general (I love words and language so how could I not like a good pun?!!) but I simply couldn't resist this... such a happy happy cardmaking session this one... and I am grinning all over again writing this post... this feeling is why we all make cards, isn't it?!! :D :D

What a great idea for the LIM challenge, Rachel! The first card had me laugh out loud, I didn't expect to see any Harry Potter references while I was browsing the challenge entries :) Thanks for sharing!
