Hedgehog

I had a lovely day out today with my crafty friend, Ruth.  We drove to a fabulous little craft shop in Warwickshire, about a 90 minute drive away.  After my experiment with Distress Oxides inks this weekend, I bought a few more colours, as well as some other crafty bits and pieces.  On the way home we visited a newly opened craft store and had a quick visit to the craft section of The Range, before an evening meal in a local pub.  A perfect day! 

A card today for a crafty blogging friend, which I know has arrived at its destination. 
I used an Embossalicious, 'Floral Frenzy' embossing folder with cream card, layered it on brown card, before attaching to a cream card base. The hedgehog die is one I bought on eBay and the circles are from the MB 'Stitched Circles' and SB 'Petite Scalloped Circles' sets.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  20. Sounds like a wonderful day! You are lucky to have craft stores to visit. Here all the little stores have been taken over by the big Chain stores and they don't carry much in the way of stamping. Your card is so sweet - love that little hedgehog die!
