Chef Edwin


Today I want to show you a card I made for the Cook at Edward's School.  It's to say "Thank You" for the Cooking Lessons she has been giving to Year 5.  Edward has really enjoyed his lessons and has made some wonderful things. 

I chose to use Pasta Edwin, he's perfect for this card.  I coloured him using my Copic Markers.

Here's a close-up:
