Debby's Favourite: #53 Marjut

Greta's Favourite: #22 - Sarah-J W

Greta says: I love Sarah's darling card with the perfectly colored Hedgies!  The hand drawn frame & sweet hearts ribbon are the perfect finishing touches!

Helen's Favourite: #20 - Chez Moi
Helen Says: I love this slider card....the hedgie really is head over heels...you can see how it moves in a video in her blog post!
