Soccer Edwin

Welcome back! I thought I get these all up quickly so they can "live" together as a set in blogland as you scroll down the posts. LOL So this evening I have Pablo the penguin, the last character I did from The Backyardigans. :D

For this character I used Soccer Edwin from Magnolia Stamps and I must say the beak give him quiet the different appearance! I think it's been fun to see how the combinations have come together and I loved adding his propeller beanie hat.

Here's the complete set of cards that I will be giving as a gift. Having them put all together they scream Nickelodeon with all the bright colors - perfect for kids. :D And it doesn't help much that I get The Backyardigans theme song stuck in my head. LOL (And if not that song, then certainly another one from the show!)

I couldn't resit putting the whole gang together for one big group shot. He he he. These are the same images colored but temporarily placed on this background just to see them all together. I made the sun rays with vellum cardstock and tried to duplicate some stickers I found.

With the gang all together, are your ready for the theme song?!

Hi, I'm Pablo.
My name's Tyrone.
I'm Uniqua.
I'm Tasha.
And my name is Austin.
And we're ...

Your backyard friends, the Backyardigans!
Together in the backyard again,
In the place where we belong,
Where we'll prob'ly sing a song,
And we'll maybe dance along.

We've got the whole wide world in our yard to explore.
We always find things we've never seen before.
That's why every day we're back for more
With your friends, the Backyardigans.


  1. LOL! Barbara this is the best one I think. I love his beak! hehehe

  2. Awesome! I'm so happy I've only seen this show a couple of times b/c I know the song would've been stuck in my head after reading the words. Just mean, Barbara... ;D

  3. Would you be willing to sell a set of them? I would love to have them for my daughters friends.

    1. Hmmmm... I don't know but I'll give you a chance to tempt me! LOL Send me an email. :D

  4. I love, love, LOVE these! SUCH creativity and vision. This is one of the only shows I miss watching now my boys are older.

  5. My son is sitting here going nuts..."can I see the Backyardigans again? Please, can I?" Too cool. What a great idea! I never looked at Magnolias and thought to do something like that. You captured each of their personalities too...just fab!

  6. OMG just popped over from Janes blog and these are SUPERB!
