Fun Times

(** Please scroll down for the Divas By Design Blog Hop**)

I have a male card to share with you today.  I always struggle with male cards ... why are they so much harder to make?  I think I always have trouble deciding how to embellish them so that they don't turn out too girly lol!


This cute hedgehog is Striker.  He's one of three new hedgehog stamps by Sugar Nellie and I think they're all so adorable.  He's colored with copics and colored pencils and I used Glossy Accents on his nose.  There's some glitter paint on the bee's wings so that they sparkle a bit.  Some buttons and twine were the embellishments I decided to use.  You can find Striker and all his sweet friends over at Funky Kits.

Thank you for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita
