Edwin's day at the beach

Hi Everyone

Sorry I haven't posted for a couple of days but I'm feeling really under the weather (I think I'm coming down with my first dose of flu for the autumn season) and I'm trying to get all the last minute things done before the girls go back to school on Monday.

I'm really hoping my hubbie doesn't decide to check out my blog while at work because the card I have for you today is actually his birthday card! Hopefully the first time he will see it is when he gets home and finds the envelope with it in on his pillow! That's if he's not too tired after a 12 hour night shift!

I usually find making him a birthday card really hard but thanks to Magnolia it was easier this year. As soon as I saw Surf Edwin in the Lazy Summer Collection I knew I had to buy it to use for him. Before we were married my DH was into waveskiing and although Edwin has a surfboard I thought it would be close enough to be able to make him a card in a theme appropriate to him. I coloured Edwin with my Copic markers and used some co-ordinating papers from a Diecuts with a View Stack (I couldn't believe it when I bought this stack and found surfboards in it! When I ordered it from QVC all I could see of it was the stack cover but being a DCWV lover I had to have it anyway) I finished the card with some Making Memories Twistel in Natural (Sorry I'm not sure if they still make it anymore)

Here is a closer look at Edwin all ready for a day at the beach

Well that's it for this post, off to try and get some sleep before the girls get up and it's back to finishing off new school supplies.

Thank you to everyone who has left me so many lovely comments, I promise when I feel a little better I will visit all of your blogs too, 'Speak' to you all again soon.
