When Life Sends You Showers, Dance in the Puddles

Edwin's on a Mission

Today Edwin has put down his butterfly net in order to deliver something more important. He's celebrating the fact that Spring isn't too far away, and has found some early blooming flowers he wants to share. Maybe you can guess who they're for (Tilda?) and we can only hope he left Grandma's garden intact. Perhaps these are wildflowers, not Grandma's pride and joy. Either way, it's the thought that counts, isn't it?





I stamped Edwin without his butterfly net, cut out a digi bouquet and made a slit in his hand to hold the flowers.Some flower brads, shank-back glitter buttons, metal sentiment and a strip of RRR gingham ribbon. Colored everything with Copics. He's going into two challenges today: 7KidsCollegeFund "Calling All Squares", and Really Reasonable Ribbons "Spring."
