Edwin Goes Surfing on Friday Sketchers 60



A very happy Friday to each and every one!!! And today is Friday Sketchers 60 which is being hosted by the very talented Heidi from Norway. She has made a very fun and interesting challenge sketch for us this week and I hope you will drop over to check out all of the DT cards. Please join with us this week in making your card using Heidi's sketch and uploading it for everyone to see. There is a very nice prize this week so come on over!!! Be sure to link your post back to Friday Sketchers in order to be eligible for the prize!!

I used Bazzill CS for the base of my card, Prismatics for matting, and several papers from the MME Breaking Away collection. I also used a cute Surfing Edwin from the Lazy Summer Days Collection 2009 which is the newest collection and was found in the Summer Kits. This stamp along with all of the other new ones from this collection will be available very soon as individual EZ mounted stamps at Magnolia-licious. I stamped Edwin on Cryogen White and colored him with Copics and a tiny touch of Spica on the zipper and pull, added a couple of MME add-ons, a bit of kitchen twine, and several seashell buttons to give Edwin that beachy, surfin' setting. Finally I added pewter brads to the corners that look like little suns.

For the very simple inside I used coordinating DP, a few add-ons and a bit of kitchen twine.

I hope you like this little surfer boy and will let me know what you think of him. I appreciate your dropping by to see what's in store today and hope that you will come back often. Remember that this coming Monday I am Guest Designer for The Next Level and I would love for you to come by and see what's in store!! I have a surprise for you and don't want for you to miss it!!!

Thank you all so much...enjoy your weekend...and until the next time, bunches of hugs!!
