Penny Black Hedgehogs

My absolute favorite images are Penny Black Hedgehogs. I was hooked when I saw the Shy Hedgehog for the first time. It was my first PB Hedgehog purchase. Here are a couple cards that I've made featuring hedgies.

I visited Cat's Craft Cupboard in Escondido, CA while visiting my sister in San Diego. Cat asked if I had ever tried flocking my hedgehog images and I never had. This is one of my favorite ways to embellish my hedgehogs now. I love the texture it adds. Thanks for the suggestion Cat!

The second card I sent to my friend Judi from my Card Cafe Yahoo Group. This card I made up as I went along. I love the color combination and the little pearls setting off the scalloped edge where the card opens.

First Card

Ok...these little hedgehogs are just adorable! The pink-brown combo on the second card is so's an update to a great color combo. LOVE 'EM!

Super cute hedgies! I love that you flock them, it gives them so much charcter IRL! And the scalloped edge (where the card opens) is so cute! I need to incorporate that idea into my next card! =)

So cute Mary Jane! I never thought about flocking hedgies. Now I'm gonna need some brown fun flock. Great job!

Very nice cards Mary Jane! I just recently got into the PB images, and those little hedgehogs are really starting to grow on me! I should get my first images from "Fulfill your wish" swap soon, can't wait! You did a very nice jog with this ones! Thanks for sharing! Oh, and just a question . . . is flocking the same as flower soft? Thanks!
