Robin Hood...

So last night my two favorite guys and I went and saw "Robin Hood" with Russell Crowe.  I had heard from some people that they didn't like it, but I went knowing that it was a prequel to all the other stories of Robin Hood. I must say, I LOVED it. I thought the story was great, I thought the special effects were wonderful. I LOVED Cate Blanchet (sp?) as Maid Marianne. She was fabulous.  Of course, Robin Hood was played by Russell Crowe who I absolutely adore. One of my all time favorite movies is Gladiator! (same directors too)

So I left thinking of my little Sherwood Edwin sitting on my desk colored but not assembled into a card. So I did what any sane (cough) person would do and I came home and put together this little guy........



I had some little chipboard trees from Maya Road which I colored using chalk cat eyes. Edwin is colored with Copic Markers. I did this one awhile ago, so I do not know which colors that I used.  My local Michael's just got in a rack full of new borders, so I snagged up this woodland border punch a couple of days ago. I love it, the corner has a bird. So cute.  The sentiment is from CTMH. Papers are random from my stash! (as usual)


I used the Friday Sketchers sketch.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!  Go check out Robin Hood, if your into that sort of thing!!
