Game On!

This adorable Edwin stamp was in my spring Magnolia Stamps Club Kit.  I think he looks a little like Mario from the Mario Bros video games.  I couldn't wait to ink him up and make a card.  This card is for my son who is in college.  Final exams are fast approaching so I thought this would be a good card to send to him.  I like to send him "cheesey" cards and small gifts during finals so that he knows we are thinking of him.  I found these Super Mario gummie snacks at the store and I am going to send them along with this this card.
