ABC Christmas Challenge - C is for...

It's time for a new ABC Christmas Challenge...Wilma is the host, and the theme is:

'C is for Cute Critters'

We are sponsored for this challenge by Wild Orchid Crafts:
Prize - £10 Gift Certificate!

I picked a some Penny Black hedgehogs for my cute critters...they're from the 'Jolly Friends' set. I coloured them using watercolour pencils, then fussy cut them out. I made a little wintry scene for them to stand in using my Simon Says Stamp 'Falling Snow' background stamp heat embossed in white on kraft card, and my Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Hillside' border dies. The sentiment is from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
