CES Challenges - Charms!

Well Saturday at last and my first post for a week!  Where time goes I just don't know - I must be getting old!
This is for our new challenge at CES Challenges where our fabulous Carrie has chosen a theme of Charms.  I've used a gorgeous new image from Mos Digital Pencil called Singin in the Rain- she is such a cutie and just looks so happy puddle jumping!! 
I've coloured her with Pro and Flexmarkers and then added some glossy accents to her rainmac, wellies and umbrella.  I love little red plastic macs on - so old fashioned! 
Absolutely loving the new MME Miss Caroline papers which I purchased from Crafty Emma's recently.  This set is Howdy Doody, so pretty. Also used from Emma's store, are the wooden buttons (love the flower patterned ones!),  umbrella charm, Bakers twine and Craftwork Card sentiment

My clouds were cut with a Memory Box die and the rainbow with a Quickutz die that I've had for about 6 years! The overall shape of the card was cut with Nesties dies.
The girls at CES have got some gorgeous cards to share with you - you can see them here.  And of course, if you do play along with us you could win a lovely £10 voucher to spend in Crafty Emma's Store!.

I've got nothing planned for today so hope to just have a crafty day - better go and get dressed first though!!  Have yourselves a great day, whatever you're up to!
