Poppies and Hedgehogs

     I fell in love with this darling hedgehog image (Di's Digital Designs) and decided to use it in their Tic Tac Toe challenge.  I did not only the top row (ribbon/2 dp/hand colored) but also the 3rd column (hand colored/2 or more die cuts/flowers.)

     I colored the image with ProMarkers and a touch of sparkle gel ink on the glass jar, then cut it with a square, stitched die from Lawn Fawn.  I framed that with a leftover piece which had been cut with a die from Spellbinders.  I put all of that onto pale green dp and added a border of orange polka dot dp to 2 sides of the square.

     I found some complementary orange striped ribbon which I wrapped around the card front and then added the single butterfly embellishment (Cheery Lynn die.)  The sentiment is rubber stamped.

     A new week is starting and many of you are heading off to work. Others have family to tend.  Some of you are even retired and your schedules belong to you alone so you can plan crafting activities to refresh your souls.  Whatever category belongs to you, enjoy your Monday and Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
