Hedgehog Happiness

First of all I want to wish you all a Happy Healthy New Year. May this one be better than the last.

Today I did a sketch challenge card from Poetic Artistry. I really like this sketch and thought I would make it into a Valentine's card. So went digging through my stamps and found some ole faithful Hedgehogs. I love all my hedgies! And have kept everyone.

So here is what I did. I used the following:

Giga Scalloped Circle Punch

Med. Scalloped Circle Punch

SU Scalloped Circle Punch

Word Punch

Black Ribbon

Black Ink and White Craft Ink

Embossing folder

2 Retired Heart Eyelets


I stamped my hedgehog image on white card stock and punched out. Colored in with chalks. One of my favorite mediums. Mounted that to the Giga Scalloped Circle.
Punched out a black scalloped Med. and then the white was done with the SU scalloped punch, I cut them in half and matched up the white and black and glued together. I punched for the heart eyelets and set them. I then took my piercing tool and pierced holes around the scalloped edges on all the black pieces.

I ran my embossing folder through my sizzix with Real Red CS, mounted that to a WW card Added black ribbon in the center. Mounted my Scalloped edge pieces and then punched out the word punch stamped in Craft White Hello...... Mounted that to the card and it is done.

So what do ya think? I thought it turned out rather well and is a big change from all my Christmas Cards and Projects.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and helping me keep my blog going. I so appreciate all the visits and messages. Looking forward to sharing more in 2008.

Until next time Have a Wonderful New Years Eve.

Angel Hugs

This is so cute, Debby! I love these hedgehogs. I don't think SU should have stopped coming up with new stamps using these cuties!
