Cutie Lil Hedgie

Afternoon everyone.  I have finally made it back.  Internet issues again.  We have been stuck in a deep freeze here for the last couple weeks.  And what's unusual is the amount of snow that we are receiving with it.  Lots of snow, wind, which makes it hard to see.  Alot of white out conditions. But I have managed to make quite a few valentine cards. 
You must stop by Scribbles Designs Challenge to help them celebrate hitting 100 followers.  They will give this cute little hedge hog to use in their current challenge.  Digi stamps and me don't get along that well.  Resizing and printing is a big challenge for me.  I usually just get fed up and the image stays in the computer and I'm back to the old ink and stamp.  This time with some help from hubbie to get it downloaded. I managed without becoming too stressed to resize and print out 3 images.  So I have 2 more to use. 
 
I've been experimenting with coloring lately.  Trying out markers, but no matter how hard I try, I really don't like the outcome.  My fav is watercolor pencils. But I sometimes find like with this one, that you end up with waves from the water if you are using cardstock and not water color paper.

Good Lord Dee you and I are almost neighbours as I live up in Sudbury!

I'm so thrilled that with some help from hubby you were able to print out the image to work with. You did a fabulous job showcasing him and your colouring is excellent. I'm sure you'll be downloading and printing on your own in no time. Digis are just so much more versatile as you can resize, flip, combine, etc. It will take awhile to get used to it but I'm sure you'll get the hang of it. Hopefully you'll grow to love them.

I share the same problem when using watercolour pencils on regular cardstock. But one look at the actual colouring job you did and no one will notice a ripple or two.

Thank you so much for participating in our special 100th follower celebration. Good luck in the draw! ...and since you have two more copies of Hedgie, I hope we'll see you in one of our future regular monthly challenges.
