A hedgie card for hubby

Here's the card that I (finally) made for hubby - it's his 30th today but I've not put his age on the card... I assumed he'd get lots of '30' cards and get fed up of seeing it, but actually he hasn't got a single card with his age on!  Oh well...



I bought this Penny Black stamp from Crafty Devils Papercrafts while we were on holiday in Devon, but this is the first time I've used it.  I've stamped it in memento 'rich cocoa' and then coloured it with promarkers, with a bit of koh-i-noor pencil for the shadow.  Added a heart pearl in place of the 'o'.  Papers are cosmo cricket, with brown coredinations cardstock, ribbon is from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Just had to show you the cute but very silly cake that Dex chose for Pav...

I said he could pick any cake, and he was debating between this and a pink butterfly but this one won lol.  I'm not sure it was worth the £15 it cost, but it's very yummy :o)   Pav looked a bit bemused when we brought the cake in though!

  25. Lovely card, the colours are great together and the image is so sweet (coloured fabulously as always). I'm always really late making family cards too, I wonder what that's about?

    Awesome cake, it makes me smile to think Pav was slightly bemused by it!
    I hope he had a great birthday.
