Bugs & Kisses by Tiddly Inks

Today over at the "Through the Craft Room Door" the DT is being sponsored by "Di's Digi's" this week. These adorable digital images are found by Clicking HERE. Make sure to check them out and add a few to your digi collection.

My card today was made for one of the most special ladies in the world, my mother. She will be celebrating her 75th birthday on June 16th and I made this card to remind her of the hedgehogs we use to have in our back yard in England when we lived there when I was little. There was a family of them and we remember the mother with baby hedgie's following her across the yard. I thought this card would bring back fond memories of that for my mom.

Materials used: Tiddly Inks image, Bazzill Cardstock, DCWV Designer Paper, CC Designs Mushroom Die, Spellbinders Fence Die, and Copic Markers in E000, E00, E04, E11, E13, E15, E17, E18, E21,E41, E43, E47, E49, G07, G09, YG13, C5, C7,C9, R24, R27, Y17. Gel pen, embossing powder, and liquid pearls were also used in the mushrooms and clouds.

Thank you for stopping by today and please feel free to leave a comment :-)
