Sending hedgehugs

Look! Aren't these darling?

When I saw these adorable stamps from Lawn Fawn, I fell ears over fluffy tail in love. I showed them to my wildlife-loving DH and he said Get Them. I said But and he interrupted Get Them. So I did, along with the Into the Woods stamp and die set.

I didn't get the dies that will cut these darling hedgehogs out - I decided that I was proficient enough with a pair of scissors to manage that one by myself, and put the money towards this feathers set instead.

But I digress, in my enthusiasm! I wanted the hedgehugs set for my brother-in-law, who is a particular fan of "hodgepogs". Here's the card he got, and it got a nice grin out of him, so I was a happy squirrel. I used this week's sketch from Sketch Saturday. Cute eh?

And for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge this week of "kraft", I am entering this simple little regrets card that I made in response to an invitation to our friends' baby's christening. It's such a shame that we couldn't go, but the sentiment was spot on for it.

World card-making day

World card-making day was last Saturday, which was the day of our monthly crop. I managed 3 completed cards and 2 more that just have to have a finishing greeting on them.

This worky stuff is getting in the way of my crafting though. For CASology's "chocolate" challenge I made a lovely chocolate cupcake card, and then didn't get round to this post until after it had finished. D'oh. I think I might be able to adapt it for this week's "splatter" challenge though, if that is allowed! 

I did manage to get these posted in time. This one is for Less Is More's "autumn" and Pixie's Crafty Workshop's "snippets" challenges, and for Papertake Weekly, whose challenge this week is a nice broad "anything":

For Simon Says Stamp's "transport", Cute Card Thursday's "spots'n'dots" and Sketch'n'Stash's sketch (new = the yellow spotty background paper, bought last week, old and beloved = Kanban's nautical stamps):
