Hedgehog Gratitude

     Can hedgehogs be grateful?  Sure, why not?  Give them a few leaves to line their nests before winter hits and their gratitude knows no bounds.  :-D

     I did this sweet card using an image from Lemon Shortbread.

I started with the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches
and the autumn colors from Time Out.


     I colored with ProMarkers and water colors, then cut the image with an Unbranded die.  The glittery dots which make up the flourish along the left side and the three on the top right I made by hand punching the dots out of paper which I had glittered and let dry before punching.

     I printed the sentiment, inked the edges and added it above the image.  The bow was hand sewn from sheer ribbon and I put one of the glittered dots on it.


     That's all I have for today but I'll be back tomorrow with something else for you to see.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Such a cute image. I am so enjoying the fall colors, and you've done such a nice job of using the gems in place of the die cut swirl. Thank you for sharing your work with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketche.
