Cute! Cute! Cute!

With New Zealand as my homeland, how could I resist this darling little hedgehog by Penny Black, especially when I won this set over a year ago in Pauline C's gorgeous Blog Candy.

After a very 'full on' week I decided to do some colouring as therapy.... using Stampin' Up Chalks/Pastels and a Blender Pen

Spellbinders Classic Circles LG and Lacey Circle Dies have been but with my Grand Calibur (love that Die Cutting Machine)

The sentiment is from a Clear Stamp set picked up at BigW and has been but using the Spellbinders  Grommet Tags Die.

The Embossing Folder is from Stampin' Up! and the flowers are some lace from my stash

Lots of dimension and summery-ness (LOL)
