When Life Sends You Showers, Dance in the Puddles

What's Going on Here?

Today I'm sharing a very bewildered Edwin. He's just come to feed a friend he keeps in his little Bug House (all little boys have to have a bug house at one time or another in their lives) and is confused. What happened? Where's his friend? What's this he's found in its place? So many questions. Maybe if he asks Tilda she can help him solve the problem. In the meantime, he doesn't know whether to be sad or glad. I, for one, am glad because he gave me a reason to use this new, adorable image from Magnolia-licious.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this cute new stamp from Magnolia-licious was how would my little guy have reacted to something like this? I'm pretty sure he'd be dazed and confused. After all, he is the one who raises silkworms in our fridge and tomato horn worms in the laundry room!!! What is it with little boys and bugs, anyhow? Only a mother would know :)
There are three Maggie images layered, and my computer-generated sentiment. The inchie stamp is from Lockhart Stamp Co and the butterfly is an MS punch. Coloring compliments of Copic.

  1. This is so cute Sue, and I love hearing about the "entomologist" who lives in your house. Perfect sentiment for Edwin...I know he seems a little girly, holding a butterfly, but your background really is so right for him...Love this card...hugs...Barb
