Sorry for the delay!

Hie everyone! Sorry for the delay in posting this, have had a hectic week! I have some more news... Caz from the Paperlane invited me to be a member of their design team too, and after about a second to think of course I said YES! So will be beginning to do some bits and pieces for The Paperlane too! Yey!

This week the theme at CIWC is cards for men, I've had this little Edwin for a while now and thought I'd give him a whirl, here's the result!

The DP's are Maja design (apart from the texted print which is Magnolia distressed with antique linen DI)

As always Edwin is coloured with DIs. I've used water colour paper for a change, and have to admit the colouring does turn out better on water colour paper. The swirls and corner stamps are from Stempelgledes grunge collection

The stars were donated from a friends redundant craft cupboard and were gold. I've painted them with picket fence crackle paint and left some gold peeking through!

Hope you like him, I might add a sentiment at a later date!

The challenges I have entered with this card are:
Craft Us Crazy: Masculine/Fathers day
Fab n Funky: Magnificent men
Magnolia Stamp Lovers: Anything goes

As always I will visit all bloggers who leave a comment, so if you have time as your browsing say hi and i'll get back to you!

Have a fab week, and see you soon! Happy Crafting!
