Lighting Edwin

I love this new image from Magnolia, Lighting Edwin. I dot own very many Edwin stamps, I tend to always lean towards the Tilda, so Edwin gets a bit overlooked. But, this Edwin is just adorable!!! I definitely think he should get more use!!!!
Isnt he cute????!!!! He reminds me so much of my oldest son, Grayson. He helped me decorate the tree this year, and he was tangled up and broken ornaments, etc. But it was so much fun having him so excited about Christmas this year. Thats what the season is all about. The light in his eyes is worth all the broken bulbs!!!!

I used my Christmas Cartridge on my cricut to cut out these Christmas light bulbs. Then I used LOTS of stickles to make them sparkly!!! Arnt they just adorable??? I really should use my cricut more often!
I colored Edwin with Copics-
Skin - E000, E00
Hair - E51, E57, E59
Shirt - R24, R27, R29
Pants - B91, B95, B97
Shoes - W1, W3, W5
Christmas Lights - C3, C5, C7, V09, R27, G13, B29, Y15, YR13

I added stickles to the light bulbs in the image for some added interest and shine!
