Soccer Edwin

My it has been a while since I played with my Maggies. I have been busy doing submissions for Stamper's Quest. Can't wait to share with you some of those projects. But not just yet. A kid that works at Target is having a birthday tomorrow. I chose this Edwin because I hadn't used him yet. 


Edwin had to be dressed in red and khaki because of course that is what we have to wear when we work at Target. Edwin is colored with copics. The dp is from the craft's meow. Notice the ribbon - it is from Target. I think it was tied around some pencils I got for opening up a red card (credit card) for someone. I saved it. I knew I would want it some time. lol The little soccer balls on the side were some I got from the see spot save section of Target quite a while ago - another thing I knew I would want some day. 


Here is what I wrote on the inside. These soccer balls were some I cut out from Edwin's that didn't quite stamp right. 
Hope you enjoy.
