Lazy days....

Lazy days is right! I have decided to take the summer off since the kids are home from school and we have been having a blast we spend all morning at the pool for swimming lessons, then come home and grab some lunch and head back to the pool for 2-3 hours, come home for a quick supper and grab hubby and go back for a family swim. The weather has been hot hot hot and we are loving it!  I have to say too the tan is helping to hide the extra rolls....lmao!   So of course that was my inspiration for today's card.
Our theme at Magnolia Down Under is Boys. I used this adorable pirate Edwin and coloured him with copics. And seeing as we've been so busy I went for a lazy kind of layout, not too much froo froo. The fab sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs available from Whimsy Stamps! My papers are all basic grey!
I am also entering It's a Magnolia Challenge to make a card with only Edwin.
Just Magnolia - B 's (Boys, buttons, black, button twine, browns)
