Piling it well on!!!

I have made this card for a total of SEVEN challenges!! Gosh!!

Mr Penny Black Hedgehog has been coloured with Promarkers and I've used gold Stickles and Glamour Dust just about everywhere!! Papers are MME "Bloom & Grow" with matching Bazzill card. Punches are Martha Stewart and EK Success. Sentiment is from a Cuddly Buddly set. The little leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I think this is the first time I have ever been happy with the way I have coloured one of these little hedgies with Promarkers. I usually always reach for the Polychromos pencils for them but he turned out okay. It's also getting harder just using the Promarkers when a few "fill-in" Copic colours have crept into my pots. Tee hee!!

Right I am entering this card for

UK Stampers Sketch No 3

Daring Cardmakers - "It's All About Me" - as Bloom & Grow are my favourite papers EVER. There I said it out loud!!

Passion for Promarkers - "Let It Shine" (glitter etc.)

Penny Black Saturday - "January Sales" - I got the set Mr Hedgehog came from in the Funky Kits sale

Stamp Something - "Cute"

Spoon Full of Sugar - "Valentine"

Pile It On - "Love is in the Air"

Think that's it anyway!! PHEW!! Was great to get those papers out and have a "stroke". I don't use them very often for fear of using them up!!

aww he's a cutie Lynn! and lovin' those warm colours - it's even a wee bit chilly in Cornwall today! I am so fed up with winter and can't wait for the first flowers to appear in the garden. I planted loads of bulbs in the autumn, but so far it's just green shoots peeking through.
enjoy your day.
hugs, annie x
