Little Boy Blue

I've made this little New Baby card quite small (so cute!) and once again have been using up my scraps of Forever Friend (double sided) Christmas papers, which I bought half price in the sales. I stamped the little hedgehog with black ink and then embossed him with clear embossing power, zapped him with the heat gun. (I like doing that! He didn't mind, he slept through it all!) Then stamped him again so that I could 3D him, but first, I coloured him with Promakers, well just two Promakers...or maybe three.
The Little rocking horse came back with me from our trip out to Seattle in 2009, (to see baby Mason) so was probably from Michaels or Ben...something! There was this huge bowl full of different little 'buttons' and you could pick out just what you wanted for funny money. Wish they did that over here! The heart I'm sure was from Thistleblue, included in one of her candy give-aways late last year. (Thank you!! I won theTemplate - Mirrors!)
The Font is a freebie (of course!) It's called ThreadFun and you can download it HERE. (Very similar to Cool Dots which you can download HERE)
Punches used were Woodware (Blink blink) for flower middle, taken from some lovely 12x12 velum I must have had for four years!! (aagh! I've used it at last! I think one of my toes has dropped off!) An XCut boarder punch and my Martha Stewart for the fern leaves, and everything else is from stash... There was a time, I thought Stash might be a shop, as everyone seemed to get most of their stuff from there...(have I just typed that out loud??)

I might be a bit late for some of the challenges I'd made this card I'd better get a move on!
