Edwin has been found!

Had a bit of time to stamp during nap time. Probably should have been doing laundry, but oh well, I needed a little "me" time. This adorable image is from Magnolia, I just got it last week and couldn't wait to use it. This one is great, too cause I'll be able to use it all winter, not just for Christmas. I used a sketch challenge from SCS for the layout (SC259).

If you read my post the other day you might remember me saying I stamped up an image of my new Edwin sledding stamp and then couldn't find it. I mentioned that Liam really liked the image, well that night look what I found taped up to the wall in the playroom! My little Picasso colored Edwin in and even hung him up. This really made me laugh. The kids are usually pretty good about not touching or taking my art supplies, but Edwin must have looked too good to resist!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I can't believe Christmas is so close, I've got so much left to do, good thing I thrive under pressure! I'll be braving the crowds this weekend. Hope you are all better prepared than I am!

The case of the missing Edwin is solved; now that's one that should definitely end up in the scrapbook!

Your version is awesome, too; the combination of Eskimo Kisses houses and snowflake punches is perfect for the theme! And your coloring is impressive, too!!
