My very first Edwin Card

Good Afternoon

So the moving company's truck came yesterday to collect all our belongings.  All our stuff has been loaded and it will be offloaded on Friday - yes it will take the truck almost 3 days to drive down to Cape Town.  I will be following down in about a week and a half and then our whole family will be together again, I am so looking forward to that and I am missing my dear hubby so much, when we see each other again it will have been 2 months.

I had to take a photo of the truck as it loaded our stuff as the kids was at school and they were afraid that they might not see the truck that will be taking our stuff down.

Now onto the card that I made.  I made this card about 2 weeks ago and it is for my sisters little boy who is turning 5 today.  It is my very first ever Edwin card that I have made, I was very happy with the end result and the wording on the card explains Dwayne to the ''T''.  We will be having dinner with them tomorrow evening and that will also be the last time I will be seeing my sisters family before we move down to Cape Town.

The paper is from a freebie that I received with a British Craft Magazine.  It really came in handy as the colour's suited my image.

I just love this Magnolia Stamp.  Edwin wants a hug.

As I mentioned the wording '' prim & proper? well groomed? behaved? not in this lifetime'' suites Dwayne so well he is a real little boy who loves any ''goggas'' that is insects and he is always on some kind off ''mission''.

I have one other card that I have taken photos of that I will share next week and then hopefully by the week after that I will be in Cape Town and I will have my craft supplies unpacked or at the very least I will have my already made card stash at hand and I will be able to take a photo of a card that I have not showcased yet.

To all of you lovely people, have an awesome day and I will really appreciate your comments.
