Thinking of You - Edwin

Hello Everyone,

I hope you have had a wonderful start to the week, yesterday was Australia Day, we had friends over to help celebrate with a BBQ and a swim. The weather has been so strange this week, storms, heat wave conditions and then the next day it is cool. Anyways, enough of my waffle.

This stamp is from the new Magnolia Raising the Ceiling Collection, Heartbreaker Edwin, such a perfect name for this adorable stamp and a new favourite for me, so many favourites. You can pre-order him from Kellie's - Magnolia Down Under Store.

I really enjoyed following this sketch, thanks Jay Jay. If you are looking for inspiration, visit Just Magnolia's talented DT's, their creations are amazing.

I have also entered this in the following challenges:
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 88 Freestyle
Everybody Art Challenge - Challenge 75 - Brown Blue & White

I stamped Heartbreaker Edwin twice for dimension. Coloured with Copic markers, the gorgeous papers are from my Christmas stash, MME The Merry Days of Christmas and the MS border is my new favourite, not new to MS collectors, but new to me. I distressed the edges, then a little sewing to give it that handmade with love look and inked the oval with Tea Dye Distress ink, the sentiment is from Hero Arts, I added some tiny heart punches and half pearls by Kaisercraft , added  the beautiful flowers and silk ribbon. (The colour of the ribbon did not photograph the true colour it is a better match in real life, oh well)

I also wanted to say a huge thank you to Janiel from ScrappyJan Designs for this fabulous blog award. I appreciate it and feel very honoured, thanks Janiel - if you have not visited Janiel's blog, you are missing out big time. 

So many wonderful blogs, I would like to pass this onto everyone who visits me, thanks you so much, your visits and comments brighten my day. Thank you to each & everyone of you. Have a wonderful week.
