Hello! Welcome to the Magnolia-licious DT blog hop featuring Edwin!!! Poor little Edwin seems to always be in Tilda's shadow. But not today. Today Edwin shines on his own!
We have not seen each others cards yet, but I know that the Magnolia-licious DT girls are SUPER TALENTED and they'll all have a FANTABULOUS Edwin card or project to share with you!

How did you arrive here today? Did you come by way of Sharon's Blog? If this is your first time here: WELCOME! And thanks for stopping in! If you've been here before: Thanks for coming back! Officially the Blog Hop starts at Jacque's blog. So you can start hopping there...or you can continue on to Cheryl's Blog and keep hopping until you get back to me. Don't forget to leave a little♥comment love♥ to let them know that you were there and enjoyed their Edwin cards/projects.

Blog Yummy Alert: To celebrate Edwin I am offering one randomly selected commenter on this post their choice of 1 free Edwin Stamp available at Magnolia-licious. (may choose from the pre-order collections too. Animal or Summer). The winner will also receive today's card. :)


This card was also made for this week's Blogger's Challenge: stitching/sewing. And I used the sketch for last week's Friday Sketchers. And as always, I linked to the stamps I used in my recipe above.



Don't Forget to continue on with blog hop by visiting Cheryl's blog next! Have fun!


Have a Sensational Friday!

Hi there! First time visitor courtesy of the blog hop. Have to say I am LOVING the Edwin cards - I too am guilty of using my Tilda's and not so much with Edwin. This is just the inspiration needed to get him out and inked!

Lillian said...

If the weather is anything like here, it had better clear out before Edwin takes to the surf! This poor boy does take a back seat to Tilda, but you've made him shine today. Thanks for the tropical creation, Kerry!
Smiles, Lillian

Nancy said...

This Edwin is the one I would choose (I think) if I were to win the blog candy. I would make him in his jammies though, not a surfer as my little guy (grandson) would be the recipient and he is too little to surf, but looks darling in his jammies.
