Hedgie Birthday!

Hi everyone, sorry my posts are getting a little further apart, but I have so much else going on these days I hope you understand. Today is my twin daughters' birthdays and this is the card I made for Jo - hopefully she's not reading this as I'm not seeing her until tomorrow!

I used this week's sketch from Card Patterns #71 . My main image is of course one of Penny Black's hedgehog stamps, such cute characters. I've coloured the image with Copic Markers. The flowers borders are by Heidi Grace and the sentiment is computer generated using a Kim Hughes font. The green gingham paper is by Christine Re, and all cardstock is by Stampin' Up. Embellishments are some purple gingham ribbon, some painted wood flowers and metal brads.



We are heading down to Torquay tomorrow to visit my daughter Hayley, Jo and family are coming too so we can have a little belated birthday celebration for them both. I'll be back in a couple of days and I'll post the card I made for Hayley then.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I love to read your comments, they brighten my day!
