Christmas Hedgehogs

I have been crafting away this week but can't post the items yet for various reasons so I've assessed the last few weeks to see what didn't get posted, many of them didn't make it because they were personalised and although the recipients may not of seen this blog I don't like to chance it!

This was a special request for someone at work who started a tradition many years ago of buying a card 'from' his 3 daughters which each year has to feature three animals. This is getting harder apparently after 20+ years as there are many cards with 2 or a group of animals - could I help?

Well, there were obviously many options and we settled on these cute Penny Black hedgehogs. I coloured them in copics, added gold to some of the bells and had these lovely little real bells in my stash (as you do - just in case) which I attached with a little thread and some strong glue.
The girls names were added to snowflakes for an extra touch and all mounted and backed on to some sparkly paper.

I'm now off to make cards for my second criss cross box.


  1. Cute card Jill those little bells are great ...good old Penny Black


  2. Well done for rising to the challenge - you can't go wrong with Penny Black can you?

  3. Well done Jill - I'm sure he would have absolutely been over the moon with this card.
