Multi-Talented Edwin

Stamps: Magnolia 'Chasing Edwin', Papertrey 'Pond Life Sentiments'. Cardstcok: Real Red, Papertrey white, Paper Studio Denim and Vintage Flags, Basic Grey Motifica Chalk, My Mind's Eye Original Dots. Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, white gel pen. Accessories: Paper Studio Denim, toothpick, brad.

This Edwin originally held a butterfly net, but he reminded me of how my daughters love to run around to make their pinwheels spin. He would also be perfect holding a flower or a birthday balloon, too -- don't you love versatile stamps?

Edwin looks like he's having fun, but he's actually working very hard -- fulfilling FIVE different challenges! The first challenge is to create a Memorial (or Mother's Day) card for KL Scrappin' N Stampin over on Papercraft Planet. There's still time to play along in this challenge and a great prize up for grabs.

The second challenge was Friday Sketchers #50. I'm a couple weeks behind in having this one submitted, but this sketch was still perfect for this card.

Third is the Limited Supplies Challenge 219 on SplitCoast Stampers to create a card for a May holiday.

Fourth is WRAK challenge to create a non-birthday card for a child. I thought any kid would love this mini pinwheel (Kerry has a fun tutorial on her blog HERE) and the message was affirming, too.

And last, but certainly not least, is the Roses on Paper 'One for the Boys' challenge to create a card without a single 'girly' element.

Pretty impressive job for one little Edwin, isn't it?

**Stop by the KL Stampin' N Scrappin' store to see all the new items available for pre-order! My all-time favorite -- Copics at bargain prices!! And if you order before the end of May, shipping is free, too.
