Rainy Day Hedgehogs

Hello again! Another week has gone by... they go so quick! We are finally having some beautiful weather here. We're still not completely unpacked from our move yet, but I'm unpacked enough to craft! My new crafting area looks right the second story window. There's not much to see but farmland, but that's enough for me.

As you can see, I'm still playing around with handmade flowers. I used the tutorial at Craft Snob to make this flower out of felt. I also did more hand stitching. I must say, I'm getting a little quicker already.  The image is a freebie from Sliekje. I've probably mentioned her before. All of her digis are freebies and they are absolutely adorable!

I've just started using Neenah Solar White papers for my digis. What a huge difference it makes with my ProMarker blending!!!

Once again, I did not have the right color of ribbon, so I colored a white ribbon with my ProMarkers to match.

Last week, I forgot to mention the tutorial I used to create the flower (yellow flower below) on my card . I actually found it in three different places: Sisters' Stuff, Paper Loves Glue, and Mad Mim.

Thanks for stopping by!

ProMarkers: Vanilla, Tan, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Lavender, Orchid, Tulip Yellow, Meadow Green
