Poor Edwin...

This Edwin, although I love him dearly, always looks so bummed out!  Even the super bright summer colors didn't help his expression!  So I decided to give him something to cry about, so to speak, and let the fish get away.  Hang in there buddy!

For:
Sunday Sketch and Stamp
Crop Stop (banner)
7 Kids (summer!)
Divas by design (summer)
All Sorts (ice cream colors)
I Brake for Challenges (summer)

Cute Card Thursday (punch drunk!)

Happy Thursday!!!!  Don't forget to check back tomorrow for a new Tilda's Town challenge!!!

So adorable, Rene. Bummed out or bored. Fishing takes patience. I love your card it is so cheery with all those bright colors even though Edwin might be bummed the big one got away.

I agree with you - he does look bummed out and you sure did try to cheer him up with one pretty card. I will tell you this secret. Doctor Edwin looks even more bummed out and I do not think he has very good luck with keeping patients.
