Edwin Takes Center Stage and Great Big Thank You to Ruby

A BIG THANK YOU to my incredibly talented friend RUBY!!!!!! She gave me this wonderful "Stylish Blogger Award" (don't know that I deserve it!)
Due to time constraints (having work done in my house this week), I am unable to fulfill the requirements for this lovely award. I am so honored and touched, dear Ruby, for naming me!!! Love you, Sweetie!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

I decided it's time to give Edwin center stage, so I entered this handsome man in the Shop Crea Duymelot contest which requires the use of a Maggie stamp and the colors brown/blue. The contest will be in effect until January 31st. The sketch was provided by TINEKE. Edwin is from the new winter kit.
The papers are all from my identifying name on the back, so I can't give credit to the designer. The corner adorner is from Megahobby and the brown glitter paper for the swirl was a gift from my dear friend, Danielle.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day. Hugs!!!
