Summer Picnic - Happy Birthday Mum!!!

A recent challenge on The Penny Black blog was to make a summer card.  I realised that I hadn't used this lovely slapstick stamp 'Hedgehog Birthday' that I won from the PBSC blog.  It was ideal for this challenge!!

Supplies used - 
Penny Black Slapstick stamp - Hedgehog birthday
Patterned paper - magazine freebie
HOTP and Cuddly Buddly sentiment stamps
EK Success flower punch and MS frond punch
Pearls from Hobby House

A close up of the stamped image which was watercoloured with Derwent watercolour pencils, the hedgehog and the mouse were stamped again and raised up over the base image with pinflair glue.

I'm giving this card today to my mum for her birthday - I hope the weather is nice and sunny as it is the summer garden party where she lives - it would be nice if we could sit outside like hedgie and mouse to eat our cake and drink Pimms & Lemondade


  1. Awwww, that IS adorable Karen, what a gorgeous image. Happy Birthday to your Mum..xx

  2. It's a lovely card, and one I'm sure she'll treasure

  3. Such a sweet card, I love the raised images :)

  4. very pretty, the decoupage adds a little more to it too :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
