Hi Folks!
Hope you've had a good weekend, I've been busy in the garden - not my natural habitat - but I have quite enjoyed pottering around in the sunshine. Who knew pressure washing could be fun??

Just dashing on to share a card before the challenge at Mojo Monday closes!

I've had my eye on these cute hedgehogs from Lawn Fawn for ages - I love hedgies which is how my Penny Black addiction got started!! I finally succumbed  and treated myself to them and the matching dies at the end of March but this is their 'first outing'. I justified my purchase because obviously they will be useful for so many occasions ....!! This card for my parents who celebrate their wedding anniversary soon - simples but cute!! The LF dies make it super quick to cut out the little critters too. 

The background paper is a scrap of Forever Friends Christmas paper and a bit of matching red card stock. Coloured with promarkers. Stampin Up border punch and dies from Simon Says stamp and Memory box.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Mojo Monday - a great sketch

Lawnscaping - Calling All Critters
City Crafter - Something Prickly
Aud Sentiments - Animals and a sentiment
Stamping Sensations - Anything goes
Cupcake Inspirations - # 359 Bunting
Penny Black and More - Anything Goes

I'd also like to join Di and Parsnip over at the Playground for the first time - I've been peeping over the fence for a few weeks but this is my first proper visit. It looks great in the sunshine, although I'm not too sure about diving in the duck pond??

Thanks for visiting!

  5. Hi there Jackie! How exciting to have a new Playmate join us in the Snippets Playground - and needless to say I adore your card as this was one of my Sunday Snippets stamps/die sets I used the other week. Isn't it just so sweet :) Love the extra heart dies you used too!

    I did giggle that you'd been peeping over the Playground fence for a few weeks - I thought I heard shuffling a few times :) Go and peek at this card I made a while back - was this just like you then?

    Love your blog Jackie, we appear to have similar tastes in our favourite stamps and such and it seems as if you perhaps don't live too far away either. Just gonna add myself as a follower.
