Happy Spring Emma

Today looks more like spring than yesterday.  All the snow has melted and the sun is a shinin'!  Yeah.  My card today uses a Whimsy Stamp's image called Summer Day Emma.  For today though she is Spring Day Emma.

  I used the Recipe Challenge over at Die Cuts R Us.  The recipe is 1 Stamped image, 2 Die cuts, and 3 buttons or bling plus some ribbon.  I created the frame around my image using 2  Labels One nestabilities.  My sentiment is enclosed in one of the NEW Spellbinders called Labels Eleven.  ( seriously...why do they have to name them all labels...sooo confusing)  Go check out the spellbinders... they are on sale right now.
I can tell you that Claudia ships VERY quickly.   Love that!

I colored Miss Emma in with Copics.  I keep forgetting to take a picture of my copics for you.  Sorry.

Speaking of Copics...tomorrow is my Certification class.  I can't wait.  I have some prep work to do before I go.  It's going to be a long, fun day.  I hope I can learn some better techniques on shading and shadowing.  Wish me luck!  My kids are excited to have me go since they get to spend the night at a friend's house.

Ok....off to go dance with my kids, exercise and then yard work.  Doesn't THAT sound fun~~~~

 What's In It?
Stamps: Summer Day Emma, Spring Stepping
Ink: Black memento, lemon tart
Paper: Origins BG, white, DCWV green
Other: Copics, prima flowers, bling, yellow satin ribbon, nestabilities, sewing machine
