Another Little Gift Hedgy!

Hi Everyone,

What a morning! I'm lucky if I get a couple of hours to myself on a saturday morning so when I do I like to try and make a couple of cards. This mornings efforts are a complete disaster!!! My Lili of the valley challenge, peaches and cream card has gone in the bin. . . .twice!! This one was my 3rd attempt at a card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Case it Card by Domi.
Sometimes you get an idea in your head for a card and it just won't work but you can't get rid of the idea??!! Well that's what happened. I started by drawing around a plate to get a large circle but it looked like my 4 year old had cut it out. . . . .so it got smaller!! This meant my new rubber stamp was too big so I've gone back to the good old 'gift hedgy'.

I think this challenge is turning into, 'How many different cards I can make with the one rubber stamp!' I coloured the little hedgy with promarkers and cut him out.

I have absolutely no idea where the background papers are from, they were scraps from my box. I've used a martha stewart border punch and joy!crafts die for the flowers.
I don't know if I'll get back in my craft room to sort out the LOTV card this weekend, it might be good to leave it alone for a!!
I've promised my daughter we would bake cakes this afternoon so I'm off to make a mess in my kitchen!
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and for any comments you might like to leave.
Have a fab weekend

This is beautiful Lorraine. Love the colours and love the image. I sympathise with the LOTV card - I made 4 before I gave up and posted the last one I made because I didn't have it in me to make another!!! Peaches and cream was my idea - what kind of numpty am I? Big hugs and good luck with the LOTV card, Jayne xx
