Yay - there's 2 new followers showing in my followers list. A big welcome to Birgit of Crafting While I Wait! So happy to have some new followers, as it's been quiet for a long while. Thanks for becoming followers, and I hope my friends will pop over to say Hello to Birgit, and enjoy some gorgeous cards. I've not been able to determine who the other new follower is, so if it should be you, please let me know. I add the names of followers in my spreadsheed database, and then your name is included for when Blog Candy winners are chosen.
Speaking of Blog Candy: For a while now, there's been some goodies collecting in a box. Was hoping to reach the 350 followers milestone, then Blogger played games with the followers. However, all the Blogaversaries I've been seeing around Blogland reminded me, I have a 5 year Blogaversary coming on March 12. So if the milestone goal happens first, some of the candy will go for that. And then there will be another give-away for the Blogaversary! That 5 years has gone by so fast, and I've met so VERY many lovely people.
I hope you won't get too tired with Valentine cards in the next few days, but that's what I've got to work on. (and get in the mail too!). So here goes with today's, using my favorite Penny Black Hedgie. Just love this little guy, and he's so easy to color. This is an old wooden PB, bought when I first started learning how to stamp.
Copic coloring, some Winks added on some of the hearts. The background around Hedgie & his balloons is BG0000 and BG000 (pale blues).
- Cheery Lynn die sentiment
- MB Oval Master Frame 99357 - cut from a 6x6 Recollections Christmas Noel pack. The design is a wood grain motif. Happened to notice the opposite side is white, with some raised embossing, so used that side. The frame is popped up on foam strips placed along the inside edges.
- Rhinestone hearts to trim, and the white card base was edged with DI Weathered Wood and Memento Summer Sky sponging. This enhances the light blue background around Hedgie, that the photo is not showing, but looks nice IRL. The camera IS showing the adhesive dots that were on the rhinestone hearts, though, which IRL the eye does NOT see! Go figure!!!
Ya'll have a great evening, and come again when you have time! I try to visit all who leave comments, but sometimes I'm not absolutely certain that my comment was published. So if I should miss coming to enjoy your work, I'd appreciate hearing from you. Sometimes Blogger likes to tease me! Hugs
