My dear Edwin

Good evening, sorry I haven't been around for a few days but I have came down with this nasty, horrid flu bug that has had me in bed I have just managed to get up today and have a bite to eat.  I also wanted to share with you a card that I made at the weekend and with one thing and another haven't been able to post it.  

Another thing happened yesterday, the sink in the bathroom was blocked and wouldn't drain.  To cut a long story short.. the pipe outside was metal and had frozen the water inside.  Andrew replaced the pipe and we thought that was that until my daughter went for a shower....  it was raining inside the house pouring out of the celling rose in the kitchen.  Then Andrew was connecting the new pipe outside he had loosened the drain pipe under the shower.  We have had to cut a hole in the bathroom floor to fix it but thank goodness its fixed now.. What a handy hubby I have....
Anyway I always seem to babel.. On to my card
I haven't made many Edwin cards for a while, he was looking very lonely in the draw . He turned out quite well.  
I used Basic Grey papers for a change and got my sewing machine out for the edges.  Lilly of the Valley sentiment stamp, Magnolia stamps, MD flower die, brad and spacers.  I used shrink plastic to make the little pears and stampin up buttons.
 The sentiment stamp on the base is from Whimsy stamps and the lace is from
