Hedgehog 'Hello' Calendar Card

Don't you just LOVE this Penny Black hedgehog image?  I purchased the stamp awhile ago from a clearance bin in a Boston craft store.  I knew that I would use it this fall for some of my calendar cards. When I spied the Echo Park printed card stock at the Market City Ben Franklin Crafts (I'm pretty sure it was on sale), I mentally paired it with this image...perfect!  I used my old stand by Sizzix die to cut the stand up card.  A circle die from a Sizzix set cut the stamped image before I colored it with Copic pens.
For a little texture, I added brown Fun Flock (Stampendous) to the hedgehog fur and mini leaves (from a BFC garland) near the calendar. (Still haven't ordered 2016 calendars yet...LOL!)  Oh, the die/stamp set from Hero Arts was used to cut the 'hello' and stamp the words under the calendar.  This set has lots of great sayings which would be appropriate for a calendar.
I only made a few of these calendar cards because I get bored easily and I don't want to send everyone the same item.  To me it's more fun to do a variety of designs.  These are for my friends/family who experience fall and have the joy of going apple picking.  One day I WILL pick real apples off a future dream trip!
