Little Edwin


Hello and good morning. My friend Bea hosts today our Wednesday "Old Magnolia" challenge. She picked Edwin with paddle from the Summer Sea Collection. Love him! He is so cute for boy cards. The card was made with scraps.. too bad i did not buy all the other patters that came from this fabulous My Minds Eye paper. - and of course now this paper is sold out EVERYWHERE.

Sentiment: Magnolia also from the "Chasing Butterfly Collection 2009"
Papers: My Minds Eye and Stampin up
Embellishments: Stampin up hardware and ribbon
Please take a look at my friends cards who also have created a card using this image. If you like to join in our challenge each week.. feel free to use Carole's, Jaqueline's, Bea's or my blog to link your creation.CBC+J players are:
Carole's Stardust, Gems and Ribbon,
Bea's Megastamper blog,
Jaqueline's Creja Kaarten

He's just perfect with his oar! I love the brads and how they look like snaps for jeans! And the inside is great. That saying fits perfectly above the dock. We do need more stamps for boys. They've got so many different sides to them and they're jut as cute as little girls!

Gorgeous. I love it when you use old images on your cards. I know from experience that these cuties can get neglected with all the new releases.
