For the love of hedgehogs



Hi all,

I dug up some old cards I haven't shared. At least I don't think I have. For many of you who know me, you know I LOVE hedgehogs, so here are two cards I made using Hedgehogs stamps. The stamps are not SU!, except the Jingle Bells sentiment which is from a Jumbo Wheel that I took apart :)
Note: want to make the Christmas Keepsake box from this post -- >HERE, you can order the kit (item # 129024) and stamp set ( clear mount 123764 $14.95 , wood mount 123762 $19.95) through my SU! website.

Owl be Home for Christmas Planner


Here is a little Christmas Planner I made as well last night. Since I was using the Holly Berry Bouquet dsp for the Christmas Keepsake box, I decided to use the same one for the planner.
The sentiment "Holiday Planer" is not SU!.
Besides the dsp I used the Owl Builder punch, the Scallop Circle punch, and the circle behind (Wild Wassabi) is 2" circle. I used whisper white, real red, and wild wassabi cardstock.
This planner is available in my Etsy shop.

And last night I sat down and put together my Christmas Keepsake Box. It was an acomplishment for me, since I never ever finish any kits I get, or make and takes. I have piles of make and takes and kits I have gotten in the past. So, this was fun. After I finished mine, I ordered few more kits for gifts.
