A couple of Birthday Cards

Here are a couple of cards I have made this week.
The first is for a friend celebrating her birthday. The hedgehog is rather dear to this Yorkshire lass...I think I may have mentioned before that I have a bit of a soft spot for the Penny Black hedgies stamps so that made the choice of image for the card pretty easy.
I tried out my new Derwent Inktense pencils on this card. I found them very easy to use, and I love the depth of colour they produce.

This one I made for someone who needed a card for an old friend who is an avid gardener. The little wooden "plant marker" in the seed packet has a stamped birthday greeting and I embossed a little PTI watering can on the back of the card. I think I will work on this design as there are many gardeners out there...

That's it for this week, have a nice weekend and stay warm, I think there is some weather about!
