Valentines Card - No1

When I logged in to Blogger this morning I had a little Fan-girl scream as I have my first follower!
Thanks Roni!

I did try to see if you have a blog but couldn't figure it out (not very technical!) so if you leave me your blog address and I'll be over to visit you!!

Here's my latest card - Valentines No1 - not sure what other challenges I'll be entering over the next few weeks, but there will definitely be a Valentines No2 as my lovely husband needs a card.
I'm really impressed with my new Promarkers and all the layering of colour you can do (if that's the right term?) The prickles on both the hedgehogs are done with the same pen, just the one on the right has about a thousand layers! I also did some blending (badly) to make their little cute faces a bit lighter. I think I'll need to get myself a blender pen to make it work better. But even then I suspect it will be a case of having all the gear and still no idea!

My cute hedgehogs are a digi stamp - as I suck at stamping. I found it via Free Digital Stamps - the artist is called Angelique, she is very very talented. Click the little link to visit her blog: Sliekje Digi Stamps and you can find the hedgehogs I used in this card here. You should pop over and have a look at her work, all her stamps are free and cute cute cute. I should know as I've saved a few of them and will be using them over the next week or two.

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
Wish me luck!!
