Hedge Hugs!

One of the cutest new stamp sets in the Holiday Expressions Idea Book has to be Hedge-hugs found on page 94. The artwork shown on this page using the stamp set features one of the shaker windows on a "thank you" card. It's so adorable! Here are a few more ideas using this little cutie!




I've used papers from the Grateful Heart collection and the Seasons Mix-in collection for these cards. I wasn't kidding that this hedge hog is adorable! Check out the artwork in the Idea Book too!
