Christmas Hedgehogs

Good evening to you all and thanks for popping by.

I can't believe it's December 1st already and I still haven't finished making all my christmas cards. Still I had a great start to the day when I found I had not only one but two challenge wins and a top 3 pick. After all my whooping for joy hubby realised I was in a very good mood so suggested I might like to do a bit of housework for a change - I couldn't really refuse him now could I, so hence the lateness of my post.

This is a Penny Black stamp called 'Here Comes Christmas' which I stamped twice to decoupage the little hedgies. I used Promarkers to colour and some liquid pearls for the snow on the plantpot. The papers are LOTV 'Frosty Christmas' and the snowflake die is Memory Box 'Crystal Snowflake'. I made the sentiment on the computer and added a couple of gems from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Penny Black Saturday challenge 'Sparklers'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Sketchie time' (I used sketch no 43 - rotated)
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'Ho ho ho christmas'
Totally Gorjuss challenge 'Snows the way to go'
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT challenge 'Blue + white colour combo'
Stampin' For The Weekend challenge 'Feeling festive'
A Little Bit Crafty challenge 'Christmas Cheer'
Natalie and Amy's challenge 'Cute & cuddly christmas' (ok, maybe a bit prickly but they are cute !)
Stamping Sensations challenge 'Free and easy'
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'Winter / christmas'
Lothian Crafts challenge 'Christmas - using your dies'
I Love Promarkers challenge 'Anything goes'
Passion For Promarkers challenge 'In the family'
Cards and Scrap challenge 'Winter' (my 3rd entry)
Sparkles Monthly challenge 'Animals' (my 2nd entry)
