Lonely Edwin

Made this card for the OWH Card Party this weekend. Little Edwin looks so wistful I just know he's dreaming of home and family. I added him to the Hero Arts Flick'r Gallery in celebration of the OWH  Birthday Bash. I don't get to use Edwin as much as I'd like so this was a great opportunity. Also, I just received a disc with some of the prettiest digi background papers I have ever seen. They're from Bearly Mine (you must check out her website if you haven't already). I used the blue plaid design for my accent paper, the green background is Sizzix texture plate embossed. Edwin is colored with Prisma Pencils 'cuz I'm still anxiously waiting for my SKIN TONE COPICS that I have on order. Can't wait to get them and start learning the Copics way! Now I must get back to more coloring, cutting and pasting. Busy, busy.

 Forgot to add. Made the tag with one of the new JustRite stamps I just received. Now I have more new toys to play with. The tag is heat embossed with Clear Tops Black ep.
