This is a Special Post - Surprise for you all A New Creator

We have a very new digi stamp creator in our midst and as she only came on line yesterday I thought Id give her a big boost its Lyn of Spyders Web a really lovely lady who's been doodling for quite awhile, and we never realised just how talented she is, I was lucky as I was sent a doodle of hers and this is what I came up with
a New Home card, this gorgeous little hedgehog sitting in this flowerpot decided to me that it could be a New Home card and Ive coloured him with my copic pens. I used the new No.12 Label Nestabilitie to cut him out then drew around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is one that I had in my stash, I believe its a Hobby Arts one, but carnt be totally sure.
The base card is 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue pearlescent card, and one of three papers from Kay Millers Downloads she has some really lovely downloads to and they are really funky some of them. This first paper is a pretty aqua paper with flowers and leaves on, the second paper Ive cut into a 5" square its a striped paper and used my new Flower design Martha Stewart all around punch set on, its been set in a diamond shape, and on top of this Ive used my last paper a lime green paper with a leaf pattern on and with the same punch, then stuck it across the middle. On top of this I have stuck a lace strip, over which Ive stuck my mounted image, and my sentiment underneath towards the right hand side.
Now for a change Ive created a flower from some lace and some of my beads, hope you like it, I bought some Prima ones similar to this and thought Id have a go to see if I could create one to. This has been stuck on top of some punched out fern leaves.
I do hope you will pop over and visit Lyn's new Digi Stamp shop, as its new shes still getting more images up, but what she already has to offer are fabulous, so I do hope you will support her in her new venture.

ohooo Shirley what can I say! He's Lovely!! And I never thought of making a New Home with him! But how strange you did, because I actually thought of one of our (late) guinea pigs, who loved living in a (very big!) flower pot in the garden! Thank you soo much for sharing your lovely creation. I think I'll just have to post him in my 'shop' Your colouring is a million times better than John's, (shh! don't tell him I said that!!)
(((Hugs))) (((Lyn))
Ps..the funny writing in my comment is all about Midnight Madness's party!!
