Hedgehog Hello!

Good morning to you. Thank you so much for your kind comments yesterday you are such wonderful cyber friends! I think I must have been having a bad day and I feel much brighter today - onwards and upwards as they say! Rowan has put weight on 4 1/2 ounces!! I knew he would I could just see that he was feeding properly.

Over at Crafty Sentiments today we have a new challenge and the theme for this one is everyone's favourite choice - Anything Goes!!!  Here is my card:

I have used the adorable Hedgehog Hello which is available here.  He has been coloured with Copics, chalks and a bit of Stickles to the butterfly.  I used my Dienamics Pierced Oval Stax to cut him out and then matted him onto Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  Papers are First Edition and Centura Pearl.  I used a new die I got at the NEC for the edge it is from Britannia Dies called Lattice Edge No 13.  Now those beautiful flowers were a present from Chrissy - thank you so much Chrissy they are fab! I used a punch for the leaf spray and the sentiment banner is from my stash.

Here is a side view:

We have a great prize this week for the lucky winner:

and why don't you go over to the store and check this out:

Thank you so much for looking today I really appreciate it! Take care xx
