Thursday Thoughts

Today's card uses the sketch from Sketch Saturday and the theme from Less is More - little creatures.                    We'd love you to display our banner                                                        
I bought these hedgehog stamps the other week when I went to the Sincerely Yours craft show at Newark. I think they are so cute and I meant to save them for Valentine's day, but then this challenge appeared and I knew I'd have to use them.

I embossed a grassy background for the hedgehogs and then stamped and coloured them with a few hearts sprinkled.

The sentiment went on another piece of card and I rounded the top corners to echo the curve of the hedgehog backs.  The little banner and a sprinkle added and I was done.

Stamps: lawn fawn, hedgehugs
Inks: SU, cherry cobbler; Memento, rich cocoa
Flexmarkers: saddle brown, nutmeg, dusky pink
Embossing: magazine freebie
Embellishments: doodlebug sprinkles, day to day asst.

Thanks for looking today, your visit is much appreciated.
