Its been quite a while...well I try to post at least twice a week and here one has gone by without a single card.  I was in a funk!  I hadn't even posted my Valentines.  I made 3 versions and they are all below. 

First up Penny Black's sweet dancing can one not smile looking at this silly happy lil hedgie?  This is a new stamp for me, and I am entering the card to Penny Black's Saturday Challenge for February.

Next up, Simon's Mosaic Heart, also a recent addition to my crafty stash.  The background was made from a large sheet of watercolor paper colored with reds and purple brusho pigments.

 And lastly, my sweet lil topiary heart from Stampin Up.  I made little 4bar sized cards with this one. The  Each part was colored with markers in two shades and stamped multiple times...thank goodness for the Misti.

All three cards are going to Just Us Girls Trend Week Challenge - Hearts.


Thanks so very much for stopping by!


  1. love your little hedgie dancing for joy, the colors in the brusho heart are fantastic and darling heart topiary!

  2. Love 'em all. I think the hedgehog takes the prize though. Thanks for sharing them with us this week at Just Us Girls.

  3. Love the hedgehog card; my grand son has one named Sherman. Prickly little guy (the hedgehog, not Gavin). I have that topiary stamp, but never used it. Thanks for the reminder!

  4. As you might guess, the hedgie is my favorite--gorgeous soft background & the gold glitter strip is a wonderful element, Cat! So glad you joined us at PBSC! The other 2 cards are great--sure wouldn't guess you had been in a funk!

  5. Each card a charmer, Cat ... sorry to hear about your funk, happier to hear/see you're snapping out of it!!! Happy Gal-intines day!

  6. So much sweetness Cat! You don't appear to be in a funk with these cards. I have been in a bit of a funk myself, I really need some warmth and sunshine to bring my spirits back!

  7. Hello
    Fabulous card... love the Background...
    Thanks for joining us at PBSC
    Hugs Sylvie xx

  8. I'm so sorry for my late visit, Cat! I hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day, and I want to thank you for my gorgeous card! You are such a thoughtful and talented friend...thank you!
    Beautiful coloring on your 'Hedgie', and I love the effect of your Brusho's peeking through the heart! LOVE your CAS topiary card,'s sitting right here in front of me :)
