January Calendar card with Edwin!!!!!!!

Hello all of my blogging friends!!!!!!!
This afternoon I have my Magnolia Down Under Card to share with you!!
The photos are not so great today..they are a tad dark or something. :o(

The girl's over at the challenge blog have made some wonderful projects!! I hope you will be able to stop by and have a look.

This weeks Challenge is to do
something with a calendar.
Now just how fun is that??
I hope that you will be able to join us this week!

oh oh oh before I forget....................This week we have a *NEW* sponsor.....
We are all very excited this week to bring you a fantastic sponsor - Creashop Duymelot.

Now let's get a close up of that cute little Edwin with is bright red cheecks from the cold!!

I don't used Edwin often enough and this on called Edwin Dressed to Ski is so perfect for this time of year! So I got him out and dusted him off and inked him up!!
I do not see him in stock over at Magnolia-Licious right now but I am sure that Diana will have him back in stock very soon.

I have used papers from: MME, Fancy Pants, 7gypies, Melissa Frances and Bazill cardstock.
I have colored my image with my copic markers and water color pencils. I have used distressed inks around the edges and used a bit of acyrlic paint to pop a few dots of white around the image.
I have used my nestables to cut around the image and used a very fun calendar fro Jenni Bowlin along with trim, velvet ribbon a button with bakers thread. I have also used some of my fvortie brown perals and white sparke domes. The snowflakes are acrylic buttons. I have sewn my card and used foam pops for the image and calendar.

I have used the very fun sketch from Friday Sketchers this week.

then over at JUST MAGNOLIA this want to see some of MY FAVORTIE THINGS and STAMP SOMETHING has a challenge for anything goes. Then a few more challenges I have made this for is STAMPIN" FOR THE WEEKEND is new and blue... I was thinking that January is a new month and a NEW YEAR!! CRAFTY CREATIONS also has a challenge for new begininings. ALLSORTS wants to see blues and brown. Then CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS has this photo inspiration with these colors.

Well that just about does it for me today......

I hope you will find time to join us in the fun this week!!!!!
