Another Hedgehog Valentine

Hello and Happy Valentine’s Day!


Tonight I am sharing the Valentine card I made for my husband. When I was making the others, I came across these cute hedgehogs and this fun peekaboo die. I decided to combine them together and it looks just like I imagined it would.



The die is from MFT and is supposed to go vertically with the interactive flaps, but I ended up cutting them off as I wanted to make a horizontal card. I stamped the hedgehogs and colored them with copics. The sentiment and small hearts are from Papertrey Ink. I used glossy accents on all if the hearts. Just to add a little something đŸ™‚


I am entering this card into the current Anything Goes challenge at Penny Black Saturday.


Thanks for visiting!

A very belated Happy New Year to you all!

If you are still here, thanks for sticking with me! I have been in a major crafty funk and decided to take an extended blogging break. I’m not sure how often I will post but since I did recently make a card, I thought I would share it.

One of my card groups does a brand swap each month. It’s one of my favorites to participate in! This month the chosen company is Taylored Expressions, a long time favorite.


Taylored Expressions Wildflower Bouquet


I used copics to color in this Wildflower Bouquet image and the paper is from Authentique. I kept the layout pretty simple to focus on the beautiful flower arrangement.


Have a great night!

Halloween Cookies





I’m trying to get back on track with my Fall and Halloween project and have this card to share tonight.




I found this cute Halloween Cookies stamp by Pink Ink at a small scrapbook store last summer and finally inked it up last night. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and then blended it with Gamsol. I colored several images the same way yesterday and was quite pleased with the results! I think I might reach for my pencils more often now instead of relying on my Copics.  The paper is from Authentique Mysterious paper pad and I added die cuts from Taylored Expressions and MFT.


The layout is Sketch #370 from Tuesday Morning Sketches which closes in a few minutes!



Tonight is the NCIS: Los Angeles season premiere! One of my favorite shows and I’m so happy it’s back!

Have a great night!


Christmas in July 2016 – Day 2

Today’s Christmas card features WPlus9 stamps, Authentique papers and watercolor pencils.


WPlus9 Merriest Wishes


The image from the Merriest Wishes stamp set was watercolored with Lyra Aquarell pencils and fussy cut. Both patterned paper layers were cut with the WPlus9 Sunshine Layers dies. It doesn’t show well in the picture but I added Fun Flock to the elf’s hat.


Have a great day!
