Hugs from Edwin

The Edwin stamps from Magnolia remind me of my boys, and I love coloring or paper piecing their outfits. Here, Edwin's outfit is covered up with the big heart, but it was still fun to color! The stamp is Edwin Wants a Hug, and I recently got it from All That Scraps. The color combo is from this week's Color Throwdown: Early Espresso, So Saffron, Bashful Blue and Crumb Cake. The dp is from an old pack I had from Target.

The Saffron panel is stamped with the French Script backgrounder (SU!) in Crumb Cake. Edwin is colored with SU! markers and the large heart is a die from the SU! Sizzlit. It is embossed with tiny hearts and has a sweet scalloped border. The Saffron hearts are punched with the SU! Heart punch. "Hugs" is from a CHF set of sentiments. The ribbon is from my stash!

I discovered the coolest upcoming online learning experience coming up, starting Monday!! I read a lot of blogs, but there are a few that are my crafty favorites. Polka Dot Cottage is one of those, maintained by Lisa Clarke. She dabbles in lots of crafts, but her "main" craft is making jewelry, buttons, and other fun things from polymer clay. She is running a 5 week FREE online Beginner Button Class. How cute would these look on a card? AND, you can customize the color combos! How fun is that?? If you want to check it out, the details are HERE.

I hope you are all doing well. We've had a quite a weather week here in North Texas and are happy to see the sun shining and temps rising above freezing here today! Thanks for looking!

Edwin looks so sweet. Looks like a chocolate heart he's presenting! Thanks for playing the Color Throwdown!
