Easter Hedgie!

Good morning Everyone,

Thank you for all your kind wishes about my Dad. He's now been moved to the rehabilitation stroke unit. He's getting a little bit better although we still have a long way to go. The staff at the hospital are absolutely fantastic, they all deserve medals - they work so hard.

Onto today's card. This one is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Easter Eggstraveganza.  I got married at Easter, 9 years ago and we had a church full of daffodils, also around York at this time of year the City walls are covered with daffodils, so I just had to use this gorgeous little hedgie holding a daffodil!! He's called 'Seeing your face'.

I've coloured him with promarkers, and layered up the daffodil head for a bit of depth.The background papers are First Edition , Spring Drop. Using these papers was the only way I could incorporate a cute Easter bunny as I haven't got any PB Easter stamps. . . .yet!! (LOL!)

The fence is a marianne creatables die, and the swirl die is from joy!crafts.

Finally I finished it off with one or two flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. - I'm starting to get hooked on these!!

I'm also going to enter this card in to the challenge at Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes 
and Penny Black and More - Springtime.

Thank you for visiting and I really love reading your comments. Have a fantastic weekend.
