Good morning and welcome to our mid-month post for CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra!
 
I have a new card to show you:
 
 
I chose and old stamp from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps and colored it with Copics and glitter.
I found a piece of patterned paper in my stash (sorry, I don't remember the brand) and positioned it behind the gingerbread.
 
A quick and easy make for a super-sweet card!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!
 
I've kept a card to show you today to celebrate Valentine's Day:
 
 
This adorable little pig is Piggy from Gerda Steiner Designs.
I received it as I took part in their January Challenge (but it's available in the shop in case you are interested).
I decided to make a small card with pinks and reds (background paper is from Doodlebug) and a big heart behind this cute little pig.
 
Hope you have a lovely day!

Hedgehogs in Love!

I must confess that hedgehogs have never been a passion of mine, maybe becuase it's not something we see in the big city. But now, after years of crafting, they are one of my favourite subjects!
 
You can imagine how happy I was when I saw this month's image for Gerda Steiner's Monthly Challenge: Hedgehogs Smooches!
 
This is my card:
 
 
Aren't they super-sweet?
 
I chose papers from American Crafts and made a very simple card, with unusual colors for a love-themed Valentine card.
 
Hope you like it!
