Friday hedge-hugs!

Happy Friday crafty people!  I hope you have had a wonderful week.  I’m back with a couple of cute cards today.  I made these two hedgehogs using the Tonic Studios Harry the Hedgehog die set.  I decided to make one Harry and I used the bow from the Frankie Fox set to make a little Harriet too!


I couldn’t decide which I preferred so they both ended up on a card.  I used a leaf background die (also from Tonic studios) and a balloon die from First Edition Craft (Party dies set).  I added a stripe of patterned paper to match with the bow or tie and a stamped sentiment.  The sentiments all came from the Happy Hedgehogs set from MFT.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge – A is for Animals

Simon Says Stamp – Animal Antics

Cupcake Inspirations – Woodland Animals

My time to craft – hedgehog

I hope these make you smile today.  Have a wonderful weekend when it comes.

Back to Basics and Beyond – 1 2 3

Happy hump day crafty people!  I hope your week is going really well.  Today over at the Back to Basics and Beyond Challenge there is a new challenge today.  Challenge 25 is to make a card using

1 Topper

2 Colours

3 Gems. pearls or jewels

I hope that you will like my card and will hop over to check out the other design team makes before entering the challenge.

I made a top folding card base measuring 10.5 x 15 cm and then cut some mats and layers using pink mirror, white and the navy card (I’m choosing to include white as a neutral as well as my 2 colours!)


I made a topper using pink vellum and glitter card in navy and pink.  I cut a flag from the pink glitter, a stitched circle from the vellum and a butterfly form the navy.  I layered these up and added my 3 gems.  To finish it off I thought it needed a greeting and I layered up a couple of these hello die cuts to make it a cheery card.


Let me know if you are going to join in with our challenge, I’d love to see what you make.  Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello, I hope to see you again soon.

DIY Thanks

Happy Monday crafty people!  Today I’m sharing my entry for the The Male Room Challenge  number 107 – DIY.

I used some tool dies from Marianne Designs and cut the hammer, screwdriver and saw.  The patterned papers came from a couple of Craft Sensations pads which are fab quality at a bargain price!  I layered up some different patterns and added a couple of enamel dots.  The tools are on a panel with some twine peeking out and it’s raised up with 3d pads.  The card is finished off with a simple “Thanks” sentiment.


I would also like to enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Anything goes)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
