My Hedgehog cards finished

I used the 2 hedgehog images from my previous post on cards today.
I think the one with the hedgehog having a cuppa in my favorite one.
More cards to make tomorrow so hopefully I will get some blogging in too, but the weather is so hot and with 2 computers running in one room today when I was on my own I turned both computers and the printer off to try and keep the heat down, safe to say it is actually cooler outside.
YOu can buy these digi stamps and many more fab ones at Lily-Boo's Boutique here.

My Hedgehogs

I have been looking for some Hedgehog images for a while, yes, I know there are lots of Peny Black stamps with Hedgehogs on, but I wanted something different (and more economical).
Anyway I found some digi stamps at Lily-Boo's Boutique.
A set of 6 images for £1.99.
I have a relative in Australia who loves hedgehogs (they don't have hedgehogs in Aus), her birthday is in August so one of these images will be perfect.
I have printed off 2 and coloured them today with my promarkers, I will make cards with both of them next week and decided which one to send her.

More Cards

I have been busy this morning and managed to do a couple more cards.
Teddy bear is from Cuddly Buddly and painted with Mica Watercolour paints (I stamped with black ink and embossed with clear powder, without embossing the mica paints seem to dull the black edges but the embossed lines resist the paint).
Papers from Dovecraft, letters from a Brenda Pinnick Scrapbook kit.
Other card I have used buts from a Stampin' Up Kit I received when I subscribed to a crafting Magazine.
I have managed to get quite a few cards done , my box of cards is getting very full, I need to spend some time doing inserts to finish the cards off.
Anyway it's time for lunch now.

Had fun making this card, I needed to do some more boys cards and these moodles images are ideal.

Stampin' For the Weekend First Challenge

This is the first challenge launched on my birthday last Friday.
The theme "From Dusk to Dawn" using the colours purple and yellow.
Anyway here is my card using my favorite stamp at the moment Mermaid Anya, I have used Sakura Stardust pens so it is nice and sparkly (as mermaids should be).
Papers from K&Co(yellow) and Papermania (purple), flowers from Prima finished with adhesive stones,little dots of liquid pearl in 2 corners, seahorse charm from my stash.
Thank you for the challenge ladies, I don;t normally use yellow but it looks fab with purple.
