Friday cards for fun

TGIF! I recently discovered this newish line of digis through facebook. They are just adorable. They are drawn by Emma Canning and available at the Polkadoodles store. There is a new Flat Friends Challenge blog for challenges with this images. It's just started, but should have challenges running soon. I bought a few digis right away and had fun coloring them in and making some cards.

This first one uses All Lit Up. She looks like me with the holiday lights, lol. They always are a big tangle when I take them out. I paired her up with some non traditional colored Christmas papers from Echo Park. She is colored with copics and has some stickles for sparkle. Did you see those jingle bells??!! I was super excited to find glittery white jingle bells at Michaels this year (actually they have all sorts of colors and types, yeah!). The sketch here comes from Sweet Sketch Wednesday #169. As usual, a beautiful sketch from Arlana.



My second card uses another Emma Canning image called Millie Birthday. She is a cutie, too. I went with an auburn shade for her hair. I think I do brown too often, maybe because I'm a brunette. I've colored her with copics, added some liquid pearls and rolled roses, to coordinate with the rolled rose on her hair and dress. She is paired with some MME Fine and Dandy paper. My sketch comes from Fab N Funky #136, with the additional challenge to use a birthday theme this week. A fun sketch for sure!



Thanks so much for stopping by today! We are off to the farm to pick up our CSA produce. Anyone have any good beet or okra recipes? A bit stumped by both of these, but I'll figure something out. 

Have a great weekend!

You've made two lovely cards! To comment on your first one, I think the pink ribbon is really decorative, and I love how you've added those bells to the bow. A sweet card!

Jeannie said...

WOW! I have no idea where to begin because I love them both but the card for our challenge of course I will say is the best :) The image is adorable and the colors, papers, ribbon and jingle bells are just perfect!

Thanks so much for joining us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
