...I love this one even if it does look like a blatant case off Bev Rochester..lol We did stop and see Bev whilst at the show and she showed us how to make the flowers with the charms. Hence why this card may look so familiar to you. :) My dangly charm is a bit long so I know for next time to do it a fair bit shorter but hey ho...not the end of the world eh.By the way the hedgehogs have been cut out and 3D'd onto this card. Not sure it shows up that well but if I can fiddle with another pic I have, and it's not too dark I'll edit this post to show you. Before I go, I also wanted to thank you all for the get well wishes when Jake was poorly. He was up and down with a temperature for 3 days in the end and he's only now getting back to his normal self. It was nothing serious though, just a nasty bug but it's always such a worry when they go downhill so quick. It's his 5th birthday next Monday, we're having his friends round for a Scooby Doo party on Sunday including a bouncy castle. It's going to be bedlum so wish me luck! Tfl and see ya soon! Jo :)

Last weekend I visited the Newbury Stamp Show with Julie & Helen. Had a fantastic time ooo'ing and aaaah'ing over lots of wonderful samples on each stand, and there were many. One of our first stops was a shop selling Penny Black stamps. O-M-Gosh, they were fabulous! We were so amazed I reckon we stayed there for well over half an hour - it was wonderful! Anyway it was where the bulk of my spending money went that day..lol One of the sets I bought was called 'Wonderful'. Cute little hedgehogs, how could I not resist. I've made a few things with them over the last two weeks but I haven't had the time to photograph - until today. Not that the light is very good in our conservatory late afternoon, but I did at least get this one which wasn't too bad. The rest have been ditched along with some other bits plus the DT Challenge for Stamp With Us for this coming week, so I'll have to have another go tomorrow morning before work. Anyway, the card....
