Less is More - animal

The current challenge over at Less is More 185's theme is to have an animal on your card. I sorted through meerkats, dogs, cats, meeces - the lot - before returning to my old favourite. Spike the Hedgehog - who continues to grow at a rate of knots, is a nightly (very noisy) visitor and is eating us out of house and home:
I used:

- A6 tent fold white card blank

- Penny Black Stickeroos from the 'A Bunch of Love' sheet

- sentiment stamp is sadly discontinued, made by Elzybells and stamped using Memento 'Gray Flannel'. Then die cut using a Docrafts 'Speech Bubbles' die which was popped onto the card using a thin sticky pad

- bottom right hand corner was rounded using We Are Memory Keeps Corner Chomper

All Playground prizes were posted on Monday and at the time of publishing this I'm just about to play catch up with Playground commenting too, yay! Real life got in the way recently :)

  10. You can complain about the noise he makes all you like, I just know how much you love your little Spike! And here he is on another very cute card. Well done on the CAS look. I don't even try that right now though I really like the results, and always check out their show case every week. Maybe one day ... Kate x

  20. I have two Meerkats - Yako[h and Alexander I'll bring 'em over for Mrs A to play with. Got them for moving the car and house insurance - two more we still want lol!
    Fabulous card, you coloured him beautifully.
    You sure it's not the idiot hitting the wall or car of a night? Maybe he gets stuck in a bin when you's not looking. Just popped a snippets entry in - and before I forget as I just did no for the prize - so a thank you but no thanks!
    Have a lovely time Karen xx
