Let's Hear It For The Boy!!



If you're like me, you make more girly cards than boyish ones. Sometimes it's difficult to come up with designs for dudes, but that's what I like about Edwin. He makes it easy to get the creativity flowing with a guy's design!

This is another DT card that is making it's way to Sweden, as we speak. Edwin with Glasses is from the latest release by Magnolia and I happen to know that The Town Scrapper (mpmeeder@sympatico.ca) has this one as well as a LOT of others in at the moment....I know this because I was just there and was in awe at the 'wall of Magnolias' that I drooled over while I visited!! haha!!



For this card, everything I used except the cardstock I used for accents and the brads, are from the Magnolia shop. I used watercolour paper and SU markers to colour Edwin and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

Well, I'm about to jump in the shower and get ready for work. Working all day on a Saturday is NOT my favourite thing....but then I have Sunday off.....only because we're closed though!! *insert giant eye roll here* ! Hope YOU have a wonderful Saturday!!!

Wonderful card Kimmie! You really make the boyish cards work! I'm not so good at that myself...
When I read the title of your card, my head instantly tuned into the song by the same title from the unforgettable movie "Footlose" lol!
Have a great day!
Hugs, Line

Ha ~~ I also thought of "Footloose" when reading your title ~~ did you know they are remaking that movie?? Can't imagine anyone but Kevin Bacon in that role!

ANYWAY ~~~~ love the card! Yes, I struggle with boy cards, which *should* come easier because I have 2 boys!! See?? I *need* to get some Edwins. For my boys. Of course :)
