It's raining Hedgehogs!

Got a big one today, I squeezed in a whole bunch of challenges for these 2 cards, and I've details about the blog candy. What? Blog candy? You mean the stuff you promised us back in February? Yes indeedy, I've been planning a blog candy for awhile and my one year Blogoversary seemed like a good time. So check back tomorrow as I have to dig out the goodies I have stashed and get organized!
On to the cards!



Card number one is a new baby card for a girlfriend. I thought of the rainbow as soon as I saw the CPS sketch, and although it didn't turn out quite like I expected, it's not bad. The colours are from Frosted Designs and the Pink Elephant is looking for bright colours. Do pastels count? They're pretty cheery! The rainbow stamp is CTMH and the cute little hedgehog is Penny Black.



Next up is a card for Father's Day, everything is CTMH except the green pattered paper which is Fancy Pants. Looking at the card now, I should have made the coloured stripes smaller and had the same colour on both ends, as it's a bit unbalanced. The stamp set is a fave, I love these bears. (And PS, the accessories from the Loads of Love set from SU fit this truck perfectly!)
The sketch is a morph of one from Colour Q and Heart 2 Heart, and the colours are Colour Q. Little Red Wagon called for an altered embellishment, which went along with Everything But the Kitchen Sink, who challenge you to use nail polish! Ack! I painted the brads with silver polish - please note that if you're going to use nail polish, you need patience, which I have very little of and I ended up making a big mess cause I couldn't wait for it to dry!
Other challenges were Pile it On - veggies (veggie colours in my case), Just Us Girls - dry embossing and The Cuttlebug Spot - Dads and Grads.
See you tomorrow for the blog candy!
