Back to School with Edwin

Just got this cute little Edwin stamp, he is one of the older ones. I thought it would be timely to make a back to school card. He is sitting on a stack of books, that are from another Magnolia stamp.

I used Mercy's Tuesday sketch #90 (MTSC90) for this card. Another fun sketch this week, I love the little row of stitching, fun touch. I made mine a square instead of a rectangle, so I'd have enough room for Edwin.

Don't know if any of you are Captain Underpants fans? We are, we read some chapters almost every night and are waiting for the "9th epic novel" to be released. My oldest son thought this image was Melvin Sneedley from the stories, I thought that was pretty funny.

Thanks for stopping by today. TGIF! Hope you have a great weekend.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia Edwin and books, PTI sentiment
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Old Olive, Night of Navy, PTI ssw, school patterned paper
Embellishments: copics, gold gel pen, nesties, cuttlebug argyle folder, SU brads and word window and label punches, sewing machine, dimensionals
