These magnolias are taking over!!!

Well so much for not liking these Magnolias ... but I am determined that I will not be beaten by them!!

This time I tried an Edwin, I coloured him in copics and he was looking good, then I chopped his head off! LOL ... whoops, so I used another and coloured him in and tried to get some shading on his trousers, ok so its not as professional looking as your professional crafters, but I am trying at least! (and secretly I think it looks good! Shhhh!)


I then decided I needed to use some funky papers, so dug out my DCWV (or spensive papers as I call them) These are from the Grade School range and I bought them to do a scrap layout ages ago then have never touched them since!


I used my new star punch from EK Success, and added some very bright red star ribbon (Ebay USA!) added a sentiment and some coloured card candy to the top corner! 

Hope you like him! 

Back tomorrow for hopefully some more cards ... 
In the meantime I am off to craft again! woohoo!

OK, I've come for a closer look!!!! I think it could be either a waistcoat or a jacket, I wouldn't have noticed until you said LOL!!
As for your colouring, Tams, it looks perfect to me!!! You're colouring seems to get better with each card, honestly look at the shading you've done!!! (You're too harsh on yourself!)
