Christmas Card Hedgehogs

Hi Everyone a Christmas card, Yep! I've made one. LOL. I saw this digital stamp by Di's Digis and loved it, it will be perfect for my overseas cards, being it includes a Royal Mail post box, I hope it will remind them of home. I coloured it digitally and then followed a sketch. I printed it on cross hatched card and it gives it a lovely texture, somewhat like a canvas. I then added Stickles to the snow and a die cut snowflake by Die'sire. I hope it will make posting a little cheaper. It cost me an absolute fortune last year.


EDITED I won Top 3 at Di's Digis for this card.

Knew I'd love this one! Got a quick glimpse of the hedgies! Thought it was an LOTV image, but of course you've done your digi magic on a digi image. Love it presented on the textured cardstock too. So well done. Wish you could come here and give me PS lessons!!! TFS & Hugs

Oh, how precious, my friend! Marvelous coloring and that post box reminds me of my time as an exchange student at Cambridge. I have to do lots of CAS design Christmas cards because the majority of mine get mailed, and you're so right about the postage rates! OMG!!
