I approached Kris to ask if she could come up with a design based on a hedgehog holding a banner into which you could pop a sentiment to suit the occasion. I had a particular need and just could not find the right image so Kris stepped into the breach J

One of my friends Sally is just an inspirational woman. She suffers the most awful pain with her neck and shoulder yet remains the most smiley person with something lovely to say about everyone. Her little son is the coolest kid with the same sunny disposition. She has started to run a sanctuary for hedgehogs in her back garden and of course it costs money and she relies on donations and a wonderful hubby who helps build sheds, websites, feeding and anything else required !

Sally asked me if I would make some cards for her to say thankyou to the people that donate to this amazing cause. I have offered to make some for free for her as a way of supporting her so I need to make it a reasonably cheap to produce style based on supplies that I have. I do have some hedgehog images but none were ‘perfect’ I have sent some sample images to her but this one is a surprise as it has been designed especially for her and me.

I have used a Craftwork Cards base and added papers from the Woodland Friends collection by Papemania. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. You have the option of the little boy or the little girl hedgie with  a flower in her hair. I of course chose the cute whimsical option J

I used some Kraft card to mat the image on using a Nestabilities Lacey Squares die. In hindsight I made the image a bit smaller than I will do in future so I added a frame around it with a fine tipped Letraset pen. There is also a coloured option to the image so this would make it quicker and easier to mass produce. I do however prefer to colour so will more than likely use my pens.

I just wanted to say a mahoosive thanks to Kris for designing this set for me. I am sure Sally will be overwhelmed when she see’s it .

Please pop over to visit her at Happyhogs Hegehog Rescue on Facebook and her website. If you have some pennies to spare she would I am sure appreciate any donations that come her way. She is nursing some little babies back to health at the moment. Such hard work but what a privilege.
