What's UP Hedgehog??!!!

Ok ... first I must say ... "Sorry Mischelle! Barb MADE me do it!" :)

We had conversations at the TAC Seminar of the "monkey in the catalog" (or otherwise known as the hedgehog in the catalog) ... it is with the Oh Happy Day set on page 54 ... The best part of the story was that Paula Kay Bourland (the most prim and proper TAC Angel) actually pointed this out to Mischelle on how she had to make sure to color the flower petal green. Mischelle (the head of TAC) had no idea and turned 10 shades of red when Paula Kay told her this!

So then Barb Foster challenged me to make some hedgehog cards .... well here they are! And please note ... I only colored one of the flower petals green!

Hedgehog Love

For this card I paired the hedgehogs up with the baby hedgehogs from Hedgehog Happiness! I colored them with my copics. I added flowers, gems, and a ribbon around the nestie frame. Color of petal: brown.

Flower in Pocket

I added a flower and gems to this card with circle frames. I colored them with my copics. The patterned paper is from Uptown Girl. I pop-dotted the sentiment. Color of petal: blue.


I added some black ric rac and a pink bow along with a sentiment from Everyday English Cuties. I colored them with my copics. Color of petal: grey.

The Barb Foster Hedgehogs

So in honor of Barb Foster, I made this card "very Barb" ... ie dark, haunted, and in halloween colors.

Mischelle had told us that she had a personalized stamp made to go with some of our new deer stamps and it said "Do these antlers make me look horny?" ... so I took that idea and changed it up a bit for this sentiment.

I scraplifted the idea of the woven part from Barb's card on page 99 of the new catalog! (I truly love that card Barb). I used all of the "Barb" colors - black, orange, purple, green, and more black. I used my copics and sponged and distressed with my black ink. I added flowers and a brad and pop-dotted the sentiment. Color of petal: green.

Enjoy ... Hope you like these Barb!!

OMG! Too funny! I can definitely see Barb's influence on at least one of those cards. ;-)

Too funny! I wasn't really interested in this stamp until I saw your cards. Now I have to have it!

Oh NO! That is BAD! Shame, shame! I'll just say "I don't know her!"
