Hedgehog and hearts

This is a commissioned card. I was asked for cute and I think this ticks the box.
I love hedgehogs and have many stamps with their image. When my daughter was little we would walk through the woods in the evening looking for hedgehogs. She has a collection now of the little critters from all over the world. I used one of my favourite colour combinations too. 

For this card I have used Penny Black Sweet Surrender, coloured with Promarkers, LOTV Nitwit papers, Tonic border punch, Stickles, X-Cut hearts, Woodware flower punch and the rest from my stash.

4 today

Another card today, gosh this is a record for me of late. Having my lunch break, so doing two things at once! 
I was asked to make a card for a 4 year old birthday. Pink was the order of the day.

I used Promarkers as you guess my favourite colouring pen, it is easy to use and blends so well and the colour range is brill.
I also used Nesties, Memory Box hearts, Dovecraft Papers, Stickles on the flower and beads (hard to see), small Hello Kitty charm, Spellbinders curve borders.

Bob The Builder

I am on a day off today. So I have a little time to craft and blog. I was going through some old card designs and I have found many I never posted. This one was for my Grandson Finn when was 2. He love Bob the builder. So I constructed a card using colouring page downloads. He was delighted. 

I used Promarkers & Nesties. The tracks I drew and shaded, I thought it added a bit more interest to the bottom and something for Bob to stand on.
