have a wonderful day .......

I love this little hedgehog lying on a bed of flowers  ...... he looks as if he's just had a huge meal! I stamped him onto kraft card and coloured him with copics.  The image was mounted onto white then navy plain card, then I stuck it onto more plain kraft and adhered to a plain white card.   (I have to say that Andrea was most impressed at my restraint - I usually go for 'more is better' approach to cardmaking and I love adding as many embellishments as possible.

All it needed was a tiny piece of peacock blue ribbon pencil stripe ribbon and a small piece of natural button twine to finish, both from http://www.ribbongirl.co.uk/

This is for my husbands umpteenth birthday on Tuesday and I am also entering it into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge

note:  considering the weather this morning is GREY, wet and miserable, I am amazed that the photo has turned out so well (taken in the back garden first thing this morning by Andrea still wearing her pj's)
