Jumping Hedgehog


When I saw the new challenge at Time Out  (Autumn/ speed stamping) I thought there was no way I would enter - autumn is weeks away- the schools are still on summer break  - I even left a message telling Sandie I thought it was a bit previous!  And yet, here I am entering this challenge.

Why? I was looking for some stamps for a different card when I stumbled across the Lawn Fawn set with the hedgehog and realised I could use it to also enter Casology  prickly challenge. And I do love the oranges and browns of autumn. Furthermore, once I had the idea and the materials, I knew I could make the card in under 10 minutes! (ie , Time Out's speed stamping).

The hedgehog, large sentiment and leaf pile are by Lawn Fawn. The small sentiment is Avery Elle. The 'bounce' is a kite string from a Lil' Inker set.

I'd also like to enter two birthday challenges Sparkles Monthly  and Seize the Birthday .

I said the same thing, Marina! Too early!! (I think it's really just because we don't want to admit how fast Christmas is approaching!) But they are right, fall is a short season so we need to get on it. And boy did you! I'm thinking I might not even enter because this is so absolutely fun and funny and the winner in every way!! Hugs, Darnell

Oh, this is so adorable. I came over here from Time Out and was thinking your hedgie would be perfect for CASology also, so I'm glad that I continued to read on and see that is exactly what you did. What a fun card to celebrate fall. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out and CASology.

I am with you : I'm not ready for autumn yet. Your hedgehog is so stinkin' cute. And your card turned out lovely! CAS in a fab way!

What a fun challenge, speed stamping. Doubt it's something I can manage though. Since the beginning of the month the mornings feel like autumn, so I could easily be in the mood for some autumn making. Cute card!

Such a sweet, sweet card. Love that little hedgehog jumping into that awesome pile of leaves! Love the sentiment! Thanks so much for playing with us at Time Out!

Marina, I am not quite ready for fall, either, but your card kind of put me in the mood for it! My kids always loved jumping in the leaves...it brought us all joy! So, your card really warms my heart -- the colors, the cute prickly porcupine, the sentiment, the leaves...and it is perfectly CAS! Thanks for joining us at CASology!

Judy1223 said...

Ooops, sorry-- your prickly porcupine is actually a hedgehog! :0
