Edwin has a Blast in the Snow at Friday Sketchers



Happy Friday evening! I hope that you are well prepared for a marvelous weekend and are not feeling all the stress that goes along with this time of year everywhere!!

This week at Friday Sketchers we are being hosted by the magnificently talented Carole of England who has given us a wonderful sketch to use. I hope that you will pay a visit to the Friday Sketchers blog to see all of the wonderful cards that the Design Team members have made using Carole's sketch. We would love for you to participate this week by showing us your interpretation of the sketch and perhaps you could be the winner of a wonderful prize.

For my card I used Bazzill for the base, the matting is Bazzill and blue glitter paper, and the DP is from BoBunny Tis the Season collection...thank you Suzan!! I have enjoyed these papers sooooo much!! I have stamped Edwin On Sledge from the Christmas collection at Magnolia-licious onto White Cryogen and colored him with Copics. I think this stamp may be out of stock for the moment but I'm sure if you contact Diana that she will make every attempt to get it for you. For the bit of sparkle of the snowflakes I have used Diamond Stickles. The front was finished with ball fringe and red grosgrain ribbon, a couple of twinklet snowflakes and some tiny red buttons.



For the inside of the card I repeated the square panels from the front, adding more twinklet snowflakes, red ribbon and a small silver sled (sledge) on the jotting spot.

I would like to thank each of you for coming by and for all of the support that you give me...it is so humbling to know that you visit and are so sweet and kind in your comments about my creations. I hope that you will return often! Please have a safe and fun weekend and until we meet again, great big old Maggie hugs for you!!

Jacque, this Edwin is so cute riding his sled! I hardly own Edwin stamps so I can appreciate your cards with him...I struggle to make "male" cards but you have done a wonderful job and those DPs are just perfect! Isn't Suzan just a sweetheart?!!! The inside of your card is just as wonderful, and of course, I love the sled charm you added. You're the "charm Queen!" Hugs, Cami
