Santa Hedgie

Hello, friends.  You all know I am a big fan of the designs over at Dragonsmoore, Spyder's Other Corner, and today I've used another one of her cute hedgehog digis.  This adorable little guy is called Santa Hedgie and you can find him here.   Lyn's little critters have so much personality, and they are a lot of fun to colour. 

I know I've mentioned this before, but Lyn offers a free digi on her blog Spyder's Corner each Wednesday - the freebies are there for a limited time only, so you won't want to miss out.   But I bet you didn't know that she also has an ongoing contest - if you use one of her images and enter it into a challenge, you win a digi from her store.  There are additional prizes if you win a challenge or are a top 3 pick using one of her images - see here.

Now back to my card... I coloured this little cutie with my Prismacolor pencils and then I added Stickles around his Santa hat and doodled stitching around the oval.  The embossing folder is from Couture Creations.  I added some ribbon, a star brad that says "Holiday Cheer," and a glittery present sticker, all from Dollarama.  The oval and decorative oval are from Nellie's.  The kraft cardstock is from Stampin' Up.

  10. Well it's easy to see that after our favourite cats Hedgehogs are a close second for you Kitty and wow, have you shown this little chappie off in all his splendour. He's gorgeous and so is your colouring of him. I love that you have chosen to emboss the brown background as it looks like he's in his natural habitat. With such a lovely image your ribbon is a lovely touch ....you've let Santa Hedgie speak for himself. Ummmm, would I sound like a stuck record when I tell you that I love this Christmas card? Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
