SSC207 and SPCC104 Pun Fun




I'm continuing to make cards with my favorite Stampin' Up stamp sets that are retiring June 30th. I knew I had to make one more card with "Pun Fun," more specifically with the hedgehog.

I had a pet albino hedgehog named Dan D. Lion because he looked like a dandelion that had gone to seed when he curled up in a ball. You might not think a hedgehog could be a loving pet, but Dan definitely was one. He was especially fond of my Dad and my Dad was especially fond of him! Hedgehogs are very protective of their tummys because that is their most vulnerable point. It took years of learning to trust my Dad, but Dan finally would let him rub his tummy. We all miss Dan a lot. He was a good little friend.

To make this card, I used the sketch challenge this week on www.stamping411.blogspot.com. The color challenge came from www.thescrapmaster.com. Inside, I stamped "Happy Birthday Wishes" from "Fun and Fast Notes." It just wasn't the original sentiment with the hedgehog stamp.

Happy Stamping!

Black Stazon Ink
Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and Early Espresso Stampin' Write Markers
