Crafty Emma's Spoon Full of Sugar for Cute Card Thursday and Mo's Digital Pencil

Four challenges today which all started with Crafty Emma's "bold and bright" challenge and Cute Card Thursday's great "sketch".  I purchased this little Strawberry Girl from Mo Manning the first time I saw her which was probably last summer.  She is so gloriously cute and I'm ashamed to say that this is the first time I have used her.  Mo's Digital Pencil have a colour theme of "red, yellow, orange and neutrals" and A Spoon Full of Sugar have a seriously bright "photo inspiration" using exactly those colours but with hot- and pastel pink thrown in.
K&Co bold and bright Very Berry paper was just perfect to fit the bill for these challenges so colouring my image with Copics (and a couple of Promarkers for her hair), and adding some pretty yellow gingham ribbon, a fabulous strawberry purchased just last week, Prima flowers and some card candy...(now would be a good time to put on your sunglasses!)...voila...
The sentiment is Papermania and mounted on an SU scallop punch.

Hi Lesley

Here at last ... and my have I missed some lovely creations.

I see I missed your birthday :-( sorry about that. I hope you had a happy day .. .. belated birthday wishes and many happy returns.

That must mean we have been in blog contact for a year because if I remember rightly we found each other after your friend Julie blogged that she had spent your last birthday together .. .. but that year you had to go back home to cook!! LOL!!! Something like that anyway.

Pleased you were well spoilt this year!!

Loving the card you have posted here. Such happy bright colours and a great layout.

You colour so beautifully.

Love Jules xx
