Santa Edwin...

Hey Everybody!!!  I can't get over how fast time goes by!  I've been working to get caught up on my commitments and my projects.  I was working on a project for next week and really having trouble with it.  I colored some images that I just didn't like on my project (which is a secret for now).  So, I decided to take one of the images and make a card with it.  I haven't worked with Magnolia's 'Edwin' for a while, so this was a bunch of fun.  I'm still loving the whole Christmas theme and I'm trying to ink up every one of my images from Magnolia's 'Merry Christmas 2010' collection before the big day arrives.

Here's my card...I hope you like it!

This great little guy is '#173 Santa Edwin'!  I think he is just adorable sitting there looking at the Christmas list.  I've paired him with #482 Snowy Circle and #743 Merry Christmas.  I get all of my Magnolia stamps at Magnolia-licious because they truly do have the best selection and best prices in the United States.  Shipping is very fast and they have fantastic customer service. 

The dp's I selected are from PinkPaislee's 'Father Christmas' collection.  It's one of my absolute favorite collections this year.  Cs is Bazzill, of course.  Edwin is sitting mounted to a background cut with my Spellbinder's Nestabilities.  I used Stickles all over the place in Stardust and Xmas Red.  The cute little felt ornament is by Little Yellow Bicycle.

I colored Edwin with a combo of Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger DI's.  Details are below:

Copics: E000, 00, 02, 41, 44, R20, N1, 3

DI's: walnut stain, black soot, peeled paint, weathered wood, antique linen

That's all I have for today.  To all of you in the USA, I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving.  To everyone else, have a wonderful day.  Thanks so much for visiting :-)
