Anniversary hedgehogs

 Good morning, isn't this month just flying by- we're over half way through already and although we've had some lovely weather this week, much warmer and lots of sunshine, I feel a bit cheated that summer is going so very fast. I'm hoping that September will be a late summer rather than an early autumn as I'm just not ready for the season to change yet. 

Today's card is for our new challenge at Sweet Stampin', the theme being Anniversary or Wedding.
I used Lavinia stamps and a stencil along with Distress Inks to create this scene.
As always there is plenty of inspiration from my lovely teamies at  Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog so do hop over and enjoy!

Thanks for visiting
have a wonderful day!

Gorgeous card Chris, love the scene you have created and the beautiful coloured sky, cute hedgehogs. I know what you mean Chris though I am still waiting for summer to start, we have had one day of sunshine this week and plenty of rain, with it looking like more to come today.

One of your beautiful cards Chris, as always the blending is perfect, I love the soft stencilling too and what a cute image.
Our summer has been a complete washout, glad you had a good week, ours has been very on and off. xxx
