Bringing back Memories

Morning Everyone,
I hope that you are currently enjoying your Sunday morning with a cup of coffee in bed and Create and Craft on the TV. Barbara is on as we speak!!
I noticed that the challenge this week over at Sweet Stampin is 4 Legged Friends.
Now I know that a lot of people will say that hedgehogs don't fall into that category, but to me they always bring back memories of my childhood when we found a family of them living in a pile of leaves in our garden.
They would come to the backdoor every night to feed from the saucer of bread and milk that Mum put out for them.
This card has been made using one of the numerous Penny Black Hedgehog stamps that I own.
They are sooooo cute aren't they.
I cut the image out using a circular nestie and added some snowflakes around the edge.
The greeting and holly are from a Woodware clear stamp set. Because you can see through the stamp it is easy to manipulate it so that it can be stamped around the edges of a circle.
I added some glossy accents to the berries and stocking.
As you may have noticed I got a little carried away with making Christmas cards last month and added 27 to my stash.
I'm definitely not on course to repeat that this month but at least it means that I am well ahead of myself.
I'm off to make the most of my day off now.
I am going to Port Sunlight next weekend for the Happy Stampers show so I am currently playing with all the lovely new stamps that Sue and Harvey from Imagination Craft have sent me to demo with.
Have a great day. Happy Stamping.
