Sun N Fun Emma

Cara here today with my first inspiration post for you!

Today I am sharing the adorable Sun N Fun Emma from the May release, she is so sweet and I adore her Flamingo, there are so many ways you could use this set.

 I coloured her up with my spectrum Noir pencils and added some Wink of Stella to her beautiful Flamingo.

I kept the rest of the card simple which is a change for me, just adding some pretty Summer Themed papers and the perfect sentiment.

I hope this has inspired you and would love to see you come and join our challenge ... it anything goes so easy peasy!

See you there!

Rainy Days

Karen N here from Craftily Yours.  Happy Saturday, Y'all!

Northern California (where I'm from) had a whole lotta rain this year, so I thought I'd create a rain-inspired card for my inspiration post over at Paper Nest Dolls!

This sentiment-less card could be used for quite a few occasions.  I used the plain version of Rainy Day Emma to create this:

I super love that sweet frog and that sweet duckling!  I colored with Copics:

Hair:  E21, E23, E25
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, R20
Outfit:  Y000, Y00, Y02, R81, R83, BG53, BG57, BG10
Frog:  G14, G16
Duck:  Y15, Y18, YR14
Ground:  BG01, BG02

The rest of the card is a mixture of papers, flowers, lace and jelly dots I had in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours,
