Hedgehog, banner and a butterfly card


Good afternoon crafty friends, I hope your all having a good week. The sun is out again today woohoo!

I made this card for the following challenges:
my craft spot monday challenge 128-cute critter
craftin desert divas-birthday

I used a penny black stamp and colored the hedgehog in with my inktense pencils. The rolled flowers and banner were cut using my cameo machine. The newspaper print is also from their store. I had to do some hand stitching it seems a while since I have stitched on my cards, but I have still not got that sewing machine out, I just think we are not going to be friends considering I have busted three needles now....whoops!


Thank you so much for stopping by, my daughter will be three tomorrow so I am baking her a cake and wrapping her presents :) I will stop by over the next few days to visit you and see your lovely creations.

  10. This is so adorable & Happy Birthday to your sweet little 3 yr old. Such a wonderful & magical age. Enjoy it with her while you can! Hedgie is among my very favorite of the PB images, but I've only ever colored him with copics. I would not be brave enough to try pencils. You did a marvelous job too. Love those Silhouette flowers and tiny bright heart banners. Gosh, handstitching on a card. Awesome. If you're breaking needles, sounds like perhaps the needle is not inserted correctly (??). I've done that before. In case someone hasn't already suggested this, when you push it in the 'holder' give it an extra push to make sure it is seated tightly, & up as far as it will go, prior to tightening the screw that holds it. Also look to be sure the presser foot is aligned properly. Broke needles with that too. Don't give up on it. (spoken by one who has sewn on ONE card! :-) This one is so bright & cheery & just right for a special birthday. Enjoy & have fun. TFS & Hugs
