Midweek Magnolia - We want to see Edwin.

This week at Midweek Magnolia the theme is "Edwin" so come on crafter's show us what you  can do!!!!

Its my Dad's birthday coming up so I thought I would make his card and because he thinks he's Gordon Ramsey what could be better than Edwin with his Pasta!
I have coloured Edwin with my Pro Markers and then shaded around the edges I must admit I do think this looks good even though I say so myself.
The sentiment is made up of woodware words which is just so useful.
The papers, Wooden tag and twine are all from the Minds Eye Kraft Fun Day range and just superb for male cards.
I really need to buy myself a banner die as I love the effect this one is just hand cut.

Please pop over to Midweek Magnolia the DT girls have some fabulous creations to feast your eyes on and give you some inspiration for your entry!!!!

Then of course the prize is awesome and direct for Magnolia.

Challenges I am entering are:

Magnolia Down Under  -  One for the Boys
Top Tip Tuesday  -  One for the Men
Addicted to Stamps -  Some One Special 
Cards for men  -  Happy Birthday

Well I hope you like my little Edwin I'm really pleased with him and I know my Dad will be.

I'm off now for a nap I've just got back from the Dentist, I know again!!!!  This time it was just for a clean OMG!!!  its was never like that when I was younger I've had to have injections to numb the area and my goodness it was not nice and to add insult to injury I have to go back next week for the other side! God do I hate the dentist!!!!

Hope you are having a lovely day the weather in Sheffield was overcast and raining this morning but now we have SUN!!  

Love and Hugs Chanelle xxxx

Well I say Edwin looks rather dapper myself so so can you! LOL He's great Chanelle and I really love the added banner. it really dresses up the card. Your Dad's going to love it and maybe he'll do a little shouting like GR about how much he does love it. :-) Hugs!

He is FABULOUS! Love the dark colours and layout.
Thanx so much for joining us at MDUC this week

Lisa M said... poor thing! Certainly you and Ignacio have much in common at the moment. :D Your card is fantastic Chanelle. I think Gordon is a hoot to watch. Never quite sure what is said on the show though as everything is "bleeped" but it's entertaining to say the least. Your card for your dad is superb! I love the banner and the's all perfect. :)

Thank you so much for joining our Masculine challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday.
