Chilaxin' hedgie

Happy Saturday everyone!! I hope your weekend is going well!! It's sunny & hot here after a few storms overnight & this morning. Now it's just *muggy*! Ick!




For today's card I dug out an oldie but a goodie. I recently realized how rarely I use my Penny Black stamps these days, so I went through my bin & found this cutie!! I just love the hedgies....& this one really knows how to relax....er....CHILAX! The sentiment is from High Hopes & I use it a LOT! I colored the image with my Copic markers....yes, AGAIN! The papers are Basic Grey Lemonade....& I used my new Martha Stewart loop punches. I bought a few punches last week....all with the many 50% off coupons I had. I also got the sought after Drippy Goo & Icicle punches! I can't wait to use them!! For the flowers I stamped SU's French Script background using Colorbox Lime Pastel ink, then punched them with my Martha Stewart punch (I think it's the cornflower??). The bottom looked lonely so I added a few pink pearls.




I just love the little hedgie's face!!!




From this angle you can see my popped up flower. No, I didn't make a mistake....lol...I actually planned that!

Thanks for visiting, & enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

Rats I got the loopy border punch and did not realize that I needed the corner punch too...So now of course they are out. I got the pumpkin border punch. I love her new stuff. Great job on this PB image Michelle. Your coloring is terrific.

Wow! Absolutely gorgeous. Love how you did the corners (I never would have thought of that!). And beautiful colouring with the Copics too. I just love the PB stamps - they are timeless and never go out of style. I'm still using some I bought nearly 10 years ago!
