Midweek Magnolia's DT Card

Hello everyone I'm running a tad late today, its been hectic with decorating but thankfully its just putting things back & unpacking again lol. Also my doc has changed my meds so bit out of sorts :0(

Anyhoo's its time for Midweek Magnolia's midway reminder & our challenge this fortnight is.....
ENDEARING EDWIN
...............yep 'NO' Tilda's allowed...........poor Edwin does get left out a lot poor little soul. So that does of course mean a male card............wow I've just heard screams from so many of you out there ;0)
I have finally inked up this stamp, I've had him since he was released & finally got him out of his packet........poor Edwin he really is neglected by me :0(

The 'Grandpa' sentiment is from LOTV, its from the 'Pretty Grungy Relations' sentiment stamps, I also added bits of white pain to it.

This is the inside of the card which is the same as the front minus the 'Jute Fabric'. The gorgeous papers are Maja Design 'Vintage Autumn Basics' 6x6 pad. I inked the edges & machine sewn them as always.

The stamp is 'Edwin With Derbyhat' from Magnolia's London Collection, isn't he a handsome chappy ;0) I coloured him with Distress Markers.

On the front there is 'Jute Fabric' under the centre panel. On the right I added a Tim Holtz 'Keychain' from my stash & added the little 'Grandpa's Pocket Watch' charm, which I thought was perfect for this card & image, the charm is also from LLC. The Lampost is a Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Paris Nights' die which I also added bits of white paint to. The brads are from my stash.

As always click on the words in red to take you directly to products used.

Well thats it from me, you have a week left to join along with us in our 'Endearing Edwin' challenge.

I will be back soon with another DT card. Tatty bye & thank you soooooo much for popping in mmwah.

Take care, hugs to all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

This Edwin is so sweet and I'm glad he finally made it onto a card. The DP and clock details are perfect for him; such a gentleman!
Big hugs, Kat xx
