Maryland City SBS

Next Saturday I am going to the Maryland City/Laurel Shoebox Swap. The 'theme' is fall/winter cards- Halloween, fall, Thanksgiving, winter or Christmas. I went round and round trying to decide on a card to take. Today, I finally decided on this card:


I bought this set- Holiday Hedgehogs- from someone on SCS years ago and had never used it. I love these little hedgies and thought this little fella would be cute to use...so, I did! I stamped him onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Instead of using an ink pad, I used my SU Basic Black marker making sure to not color in the To and From that is on the stamp. I colored the image using Prisma pencils, and sponged around the edges using Old Olive ink. The card base is Creamy Caramel. The layers are Real Red, Old Olive and one of the new SU holiday DSP. Antique copper brads are placed at the left hand corners. The sentiment is stamped onto Very Vanilla using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched using the scallop circle punch. The sentiment is adhered using pop dots. I never know whether my cards are too simple for the swap but I don't want to take anything too time consuming, either, since we'll be making 30 cards that day!! Anyway, I hope the swap ladies enjoy making this card. These little hedgies always make me smile!!


I hope that you have a wonderful Sunday!!! I'm making a big pot of split pea soup and we'll be watching the football game. Go Ravens!!
