Merry Christmas Hedgie

Hope you're having a great weekend! I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch #79 for my hedgie card. I made 2 of these cards for my Christmas card stash as part of Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge to make 2 Christmas cards each week. I'm now up to 4 in my stash -- woo hoo!

Last summer I decided that I wanted to use some of the Penny Black hedgie images for my Christmas cards. I stamped off a whole pile of the images, but as I was just starting to color, it was an extremely slow and frustrating process for me. This time I only had to color 2 images and it was really fun coloring little "Booga". Booga is a stuffed hedgie that is our first "child" - it's how {and my email address} all started. Before blogging existed, we used it as a way to update friends and family with our travels, photos and everyday life. We still have the domain, but I haven't updated it in years {I just checked - it's been since 2005 - oops}. One day I will find another use for it.
