Rise ' N Shine!!! It's FRIDAY!!! { My Final Hedgie Card }


Last night I worked late, had a hair appt, and before I knew it, it was bedtime! I missed stamping last night, soooo.... I woke up EARLY this morning with an idea in my head for this card. Have you ever done that? Should I be concerned about a serious addiction to cardmaking??? LoL :)

This adorable image is another one I received from my Shackie friend Nancy. I don't know the name of it, but I do know it's another hedgehog stamp by Penny Black. The patterned paper I used is by Basic Grey - Oh Baby! Girl! and the cardstock is Stampin Up Marigold Morning and Wild Wasabi. I used my 1/2" circle punch to punch out a couple circles from the patterned paper to embellish the sides of the image. I was going to attach ribbon and a sentiment and then decided it really wasn't needed since there is ribbon and the "for you" tag in the image. What do you think?

Well, now I'm off to WORK, but T.G.I.F.!!! I've got ideas brewing for more cards this weekend using by new Stampin' Up! Pick a Petal set. Can't wait! :)

So sorry I missed leaving a quote on my last post and I thank my dear friend "Sharon of NE" for letting me know she missed it. She was even kind enough to leave a couple of her favorites for us. Thanks so much Sharon! You're the BEST! :) . . .

Love your card Pam! I love how you coordinated the dots on the wrapping paper with the bg paper. And, to kick it up a notch, the embossed circles look awesome on the bg paper.
