Hedgehog Love

Anyone who knows me is aware that I am not a fan (okay, so I'm absolutely petrified) of anything that scurries around anywhere other than in the woods, where they belong.  This includes squirrels, rabbits, mice, rats, ferrets, chipmunks, etc.  Once about seven years ago I was on an extended visit to Sweden and standing outside my apartment building and this rodent comes up close, I mean close enough that I could kick it if I didn't run inside scared out of my mind.  I had no idea what it was so I asked my colleague and he told me it was a hedgehog.  They run around the streets?  Yep, and you could catch it and keep it as a pet if it was legal. I think this one thought I was lunch so I don't think so.

Anyway, over at Scribbles Designs you can get this much cuter and less tyrannical hedgehog for free.  All you have to do is ask nicely and Sandy will send it out to you in order to enter it in her 100 Follower Celebration Challenge.  Simple as that!  And you get a chance to win a prize too!
