Fairy Lights Edwin!

I've been dying to ink up this little cutie. It's the Xmas card I made for my youngest son Ben. He is so clumsy, the idea of him getting tangled up in fairy lights is not a huge stretch of the imagination!!


Edwin/Ben is coloured with Distress Inks & the papers are Memory Box Tinsel. The sentiment is from the fab Xmas selection by LOTV.


I thought I'd enter this little cutie for a few challenges.

At Just Magnolia this week 'Anything Goes with Sparkle'. I made the fairy lights twinkle by using Art  Institute Glitter.

At Secret Crafters the theme is Christmas. Nice & simple just like me!!

Papertake Weekly provided the fab sketch upon which I based my layout.

So there you go. That's all for now. Hope everyone has had a good start to the week. One down, four days to go to the weekend!!

Thanks for looking,

Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Lovely colouring and lovely papers. Actually Edwin looks much like my hubby did yesterday when he was sorting through our lights. I had to spend half an hour untangling for him to prevent him "throwing them away and buying some new ones!" Hugs, Lesley
