Spiky Haired Edward~




Hi All,

Can I just say a big thank you to Passion for Pro-Markers Challenge blog. The stamp I won (after entering their challenge) has arrived, how quick was that..It came from Pink Gem Designs, Thank you all.

After three and a half hours at the Retreat (my allotment), Weeding! Yes thats all I did for that length of time!
I found a nice way to relax this afternoon....card making!

I find it so therapeutic (had to look that word up in the dictionary!)
All my stress and strains go away, and I am in Paper heaven.

My husband once told friends that if a burgler broke into our house, he would leave the DVD player and Tv and just take my stash of paper, he then added,
IF he brings someone with him to help carry it! LOL
Eh...Not saying I have a lot of paper, but it does take up over half my craft room!!! It is my favorite craft thing, I love it, and the more I have the more I want...I am odd~

Anyway back to normal land now...
This is one of my New stamps, it's Edward from The Greeting Farm collection, I love him, I like the way he has a lot of spiky hair that can be coloured in lots of daft colours, I as you can see, I chose the orange...Love it.
I wanted to do a card for the Fancy Fold challenge at The Creative Cottage, I have entered a couple of other challenges aswell, details are all below:
I have used metal brads and silver mirror board, on this card aswell as black sparkle paper which is adhesive, so perfect for covering this folded card.
I have used a Zig Zag MS punch, must admit when I bought this I was dissapointed and thought I would never use it, but I am quite happy with it on this boy card..
Have used Pro-markers to colour in, and added glossy accents to shine up the hair!

Hi Debbie,

Hope you don't mind me commenting but I was stunned to find Spiky Haired Edward on your blog because I work with him, or at least I work with Spiky Haired Ed.

I'm serious!

If you check out my blog here - http://monopoly-with-the-bgc.blogspot.co.uk/ - I've been writing about our exploits during our debauched pub crawl around London.

The physical similarities between the two Eds cannot go unnoticed!

Anyway, hope you visit my blog and read more about Ed's craaaaaazy antics!

Cheers and good luck
