Anything goes.......

.....for this week over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I wanted to be so creative this week and have a cute project in mind, rather than always making a card! but i have developed conjunctivitis!!............... My eyes felt a bit sore yesterday morning, but as i had planned to go to the papercraft show i just kind of ignored it! I have some Brolene drops now, so hopefully they will improve rather quickly, but my special project will have to wait a bit longer :)

So.......................another card!
Always love the PB hedgies, but i think this maybe the best i've ever coloured them!! This little scene however would never happen in reality...........Hedgehogs are not very lovey-dovey! and their romantic liasons consist of a rather noisy very quick mating and that's it!!..........Glad i'm not a Hedgehog aren't you?

Image.... PB 'You're a Treasure'
Inks.... Versafine to stamp, Adirondack & Distress to colour
Papers.... Basic Grey 'Porcelain' 6 x 6
Punch.... Fiskars 'Threading Water'
Flowers.... Artoz
Gems.... Papermania dots
cardstock and velvet paper from stash
sentiment is a rub-on from The Scrapbook

For those of you that loved the story of our 'real' Hedgehogs last will be very pleased to know as we are, that 'Little Hoppy' is back!!!!!!
She has been visiting every night now for about two weeks and polishes off her plate of cat food in no time at all!
We are chuffed to bits that she has survived the winter and the events of last year's delivery of her babies in our Tortoise house!!

It's lovely and sunny here in Bedford, i hope the sun is shining on you today......see you tomorrow ;-]

Carol x eyes are so much better already! that Brolene stuff is very good it stings a little bit but has made a tremendous difference to how they feel...........thank you so much for all your well wishes......and Wendy i didn't see any dolls at the show!! Ha good job really......

    And I understand the hedgehogs totally, who wants to hang around to cuddle a bunch of needles?
