Sparkle and Shine for the men - The Hedgehog Hollow


 Hello crafty friends....I'm back with 3 cards to share using the April box from The Hedgehog Hollow.  This month's box is all about the men in our lives...it's filled with lots of masculine stamps, stencils and a co-ordinating pack of ephemera.  I wanted the stencils to be the star this time, so I decided to pair them with them ink blending, a bit of foil and a few pieces from the ephemera pack.

 Hello everyone! We all have at least one amazing teacher in our life, if not more and many people have stepped up into that role during the past year...so we all know how hard of a job it is.

And part of the new release from Maker Forte has a stamp set that is perfect for just that...to say thank you and show our appreciation.
