Isn’t this cute! Can’t you just see the ornaments hanging from your Christmas tree?

Annie came up with this great idea. She used a punch and then colored in the ornaments using Copic markers. She drew the tree branches so she could make them whatever length she needed.

As we begin the holiday season, the one thing that seems to be in very short supply is…time.

With that in mind, Annie pulled out her Copic markers and created this great little card to remind us that pizza delivery is just a phone call away!!

annie-bunny-smAnnie’s was busy making cards again, this time flowers are sproutin’ big!

She said that the flowers are stamps from Purple Onion Designs (one of my favorite places). They were actually painted with Ranger Dabbers and then cut out and stacked. If you’ve never heard of Dabbers they are acrylic paint in squeeze bottles with a sponge at the end. You can just dab-dab-dab the paint onto whatever you’re working on.

I just love those huge flowers. I guess that makes Binkley a very wee bunny. :)

I really love this sentiment. Even if the whole world goes crazy at times, your dog doesn’t care. They just know that you’re the best person ever.

I think Annie captured a lovely moment – a happy dog and all those wonderful flowers. How can you be anything but cheery with this card.

She said that she was inspired by a class she took using Adirondack paint dabbers. I myself just got a bunch of them and am dabbing anything that holds still! :)

The background is painted using a dabber on the stamp and then it was stamped on painted cardstock. The button is also painted (no more searching for the right one – just paint it). She added some Glimmer Glaze (Tattered Angels) to the flowers and the dog was colored in using Copics.

annie-wrinkles-detail-smAnnie‘s been stamping again! She sent in this happy card using Aunt Daisy running through the grass. I think sunshine and happiness are good for the soul. And running through a field of flowers that happy has got to push the wrinkles away! Now if you’ll excuse me I think I need to run through the grass a bit. :)

Annie said she sponged the background using dye inks and colored things in using Copic markers. She added some glitter to the flowers so they’d sparkle a bit in the sunshine.

annie-goose-smThis cute card was sent in by Annie. Her colors are so fresh, from the paper she chose – polka dots and the teal-green to the bright yellow goose.

The phrase stamp she added is perfect too. Sometimes I need to remind myself not to get my undies in a twist and to just stop to smell the roses. :)

annie-summertime-sm Annie sent in this cute little summertime card! The water looks so refreshing and little Lilly is ready to jump in!

Annie said she used Copics to color everything in. She actually used Copic ink on a rough washcloth and dabbed it on the hills to give them a little texture. Pretty cool technique. Oh…and she drew the hills and the little trees herself.

annie-justanote-smToday I’m posting “Just a little note” fromĀ  Annie. I suppose like Hallmark says “when you care enough to send the very best”, say it with a cranky grandma and blah blah blah. Hee hee.

Annie said she colored everything in with Copics and used glossy accents on granny’s glasses. She also added a small rhinestone on the flower brooch on her sweater.

I also wanted to add a little note here, please forgive my tardiness! I had written a bunch of posts but saved them as drafts and never set them to publish – where was my mind! Hopefully it’s come back now.

annie-sweetbaby-smToday I’m posting two cards from Annie. It looks like with a little dash of pixie dust and a spot of sunshine she’s growing little sprouts! annie-teenybaby-smI never would have thought of putting little fairy Sprout in the flower pot, but I guess that’s where sprouts go. :) Very clever idea Annie!

annie-goodday-smAnnie made this cute little card – a nice “just because”, don’t you think.

Pitter dog’s tail wags as he eyes the little inchworm Annie drew. I think her choice of muted colors is very nice and the polka dot ribbon adds just the right finishing touch.
