When I saw this stamp set by Mama Elephant (Baked With Love), I just had to buy it. That little hedgie rolling out dough is the cutest thing I've ever seen! I hadn't inked it up yet, so I took the opportunity to use it for my Crazy Cousin guest designer spot on Double Trouble in February. The clouds are by Paper Smooches, the sentiment is by Raisin Boat and the Wonky Edged rectangle die is by Gina K. By the way, do you notice the little heart-shaped cookie cutter that squirrel is holding?
Double Trouble Challenge 49 consists of Thing 1: Repeat something in your design. I repeated the bakers twine and the clouds. Thing 2: Double-Dare. If you have used something old from your stash, and a critter, then you can link up to the Use Your Stuff Challenge 391.  Thing 3: Use something old from your stash and add a critter or two. I used some OLD bakers twine, old Paper Smooches cloud dies, and of course the critters. You can stop at Thing 1, but I had fun completing all three with this card.

Double Trouble Challenge 49, Again and Again. I did Thing 1, Thing 2, and Thing 3

  5. CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!! Love that sweet hedgie! What an adorable card. Fabulous coloring. The repeated baker's twine in the different colors looks great. I need to remember that idea for pulling together the colors in a card.

  10. what a sweet card - I love the little details that make this card pop -
    The stitching around the outside of the card ( border ) and the jute that is noted on side.
