A Hedgehog Autumn.

Good afternoon everyone!! I was trying to get this post up this morning, but it just didn't work out. So I'm going to get it up now. I hope you all had a fabulous week! This was the LONGEST week! I thought it would never end! It just kept going on and on and on LOL!!  I'm just glad it is Friday and I'm home. I did get a lot accomplished this week.. so that is something good! It always feels good to have a productive week at work.  And tonight I don't have to go running anyone anywhere! Bailey is riding the bus home, Michael doesn't have to work and no one is going anywhere until tomorrow! Tomorrow, Bailey is going to hang out with her boyfriend all day for the cul-de-sac Halloween get together. That will last from the afternoon into the evening! And Michael works tomorrow. I really don't plan to do much of anything but craft! It should be a good, relaxing weekend :D

Here is my creation for today.. another Autumn card:

For this one I have used Hedgehog Pumpkin from Gerda Steiner. I think he is just ADORABLE!!! I colored him with my Copic Markers. I've done a bit of layering as well. I used a Spellbinders die to cut around him, which I inked with black. Then added another Spellbinders cut behind it in black. The pumpkins and Autumn were cut using the Silhouette Cameo. I've added some twine and dew drops. On the inside I used a Memory Box corner die and added some of those dew drops. The pumpkins have some orange glitter added to them as well. I've used all scraps with this. I've done pretty well using my scraps so far this season!!

Copic Markers Used:
  • Pumpkin Stem: E33, E35, E37
  • Hedgehog: E000, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29
  • Pumpkin: YR00, YR02, YR04, YR09
  • Nose: C5, C9

Hey Susan,

I was just linking a card over at two different challenge blogs and saw your GSD card for this month and had to come take a closer peek! Every aspect of your card is awesome and that little hedgehog is so adorable!

I also just read the above comment. 100 to 150 kids? Goodness gracious. We're lucky if we get 15 nowadays.

Have a great Hallowe'en!
