Happy Forever Blog Hop....

I cannot believe it's already July 1st!!!  Summer has just begun and it's already SUPER BUSY!

This month's SOTM Blog Hop has almost 70 participating consultants and features the July SOTM, Happy Forever...

If you've come from the very talented, Shannon Buck's Blog, then you're on the right track!  If you get lost, you can always go to Helen's Blog and she'll have a complete list of participants.

Here's what I did with the SOTM....

I used Twitterpated Paper Packet (Chocolate plaid paper), Grace Paper Packet (Bamboo B&T), Clear Craft Buttons, Magic Moments Paper Packet (Dutch Blue Balloon), Splendor Paper Packet (Topiary Balloon), Edge Anchors, Chocolate Ribbon (shredded for his fur), Embroidery Floss (balloon strings)

-----------------------------
To make his "fur", I shredded some Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon using my fingernails and attached it using Liquid Glass

-------------------------------
I made a window card using Wishes...this is a side view of the little hedgehog in the inside
-------------------
Awwww...there he is!  I paper pieced the ballons with the same paper I used for the Clear Craft Button balloons on the front and then I paper-pieced him using Grace Paper Packet. I used a Chocolate Marker to darken his fur.

Don't forget to hop on over to Shirley's Blog and see what she's come up with!!!
