Just one card from me today using my favourite little penny black creatures the little hedgie.  I've stamped him onto watercolour card stock and then used my Stampin Write markers to watercolour him in.  He is simply finished with some stitching and a sentiment from LOTV.

My card this week uses Penny Black's Brush Tulips stamp, coloured with marker pens and accompanied with a PB sentiment from the T for Transparent Friendship set.
