Stampin Sisters in Christ #101 & Friday Mashup #18

Looking for this week's Clearly Inspired Challenge? Click HERE to see my post.

Hello Friends! Happy Monday! Well, I hope it is a happy Monday for you. I am doing my best to enjoy my day. I did get a phone call from my DH yesterday, so that is helping today be a bit more bareable.
Well, today I have this cute little hedgehog to share with you. Isnt he just so happy? His smile is so contageous, well, as contageous as a stamped image can be.. haha..
This card is for two challenges, the first being Stampin Sisters in Christ, where the challenge is to use forgotten once 'must have' items. My forgotten item is the pink rhinestones that the hedgehog is holding. I love rhinestones, especially the self-adhesive ones, and it seems, I always forget about them.
The second challenge is The Friday MashUp. The challenge over there is "True Love Sparkles & Shines"  make a glittery card or an anniversary card, or mash them up and make a glittery anniversary card! I think the rhinestones and the sentiment on the card mash into a nice glittery anniversary card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wonderful card Christi! I love that hedgehog, he is SO adorable! The rhinestones are a great touch for the glitter portion of the challenge!

Your DH must be deployed? My husband is retired Navy so I know how hard it can be. Thank you to both you and your husband for all your sacrifices!

Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!

That hedgehog is too stink'in cute! I love how you incorporated the rhinestones. It's the most amazing thing in the world when they are gone for a long time and we get a phone call, no matter what the day has been like it always made it better for me I know. It really makes those deployments go a tiny bit faster when you can talk to them more often. Thank you for joining us this week at the Friday Mashup..
