Another Scenic Card Using Lavinia Hedgehogs "The Wallace Family" and a Penny Black Tree

Hello again,

Here is my second card for today where I used more of my new Lavinia stamps along with a new stamp from Penny Black. 

This card was made for the new Allsorts challenge theme where Lorraine (Lolo) is hosting. She picked the theme of "Anything Winter". By the way, as we are nearing the holidays, this challenge will run for 2 weeks and this is in fact my last new card share of the year. (I will be back on December 29th with my Year in Review post.) There are are 3 prizes to be won this time, a digi prize from our generous sponsor Ruth Hamilton Design, and then there is a Tonic Wreath Die and a Bee Crafty Botanical Stamp set. 


I used more of my newly purchased stamps for another scenic card. Masking was done as usual with torn copy paper and on this card I used mainly Stormy Sky Distress Oxide ink with just a little bit of Chipped Sapphire ink along the edges. 


The tree is from Penny Black's  set Woodsy. I had purchased a few Penny Black products on Cyber Monday. The hedgehogs are from Lavinia's set The Wallace Family. I just  had to have the hedgehogs!! There is another larger hedgehog in this set. The winter sentiment is also from Lavinia. Those of you in the UK will know where to get their Lavinia stamps, in the US these stamps are available from Del Bellos Designs, remember, if you are a new costumer and shop through this referral link you will save $5 off your order. 


I used the Posca pen once again which I also purchased from Del Bellos, added a few sticky rhinestones and a die cut snowflake from Penny Black's Dancing Snowflakes die set, another item I bought on Cyber Monday. I'm definitely putting myself on a spending freeze now!

Hope you will join us at Allsorts challenge for our new theme. Remember it's a two week theme so you will have extra time to enter!

Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you have a great weekend. I'm am excited to watch my daughter dance in the Nutcracker Ballet this evening. Then things will slow down a bit here and I should have some time to make some Christmas cookies next week just in time for Christmas! It's been such a busy week full of rehearsals! 


Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!
