Even more Annies



Sweet and talented Virginia is hosting a challenge to create a card that will "beat the winter blahs" and have a "wow" factor. I'm hoping the bunch of flowers that Annie is holding is enough of a "wow".







Visit her blog and join in on the fun! She has great prizes and the deadline is February 5 at midnight, Eastern time. Thanks for a fun challenge, Virginia!
I'm glad that I could play along.





This Sugar Nellie "Blossom" image was on sale at Funky Kits so I ordered her and two others that Alice shared with me. I love coloring Annie!







And my dear friend Jo sent me this "Day Dreamer" Annie and I was thrilled because it's been sold out at Funky Kits for a loooong time. Thank you, Jo! I love her!

And congrats to Vera, Linda , and Arlene for rounding out the number of Hero Arts' hostesses to six. I know they'll wear their aprons proudly!

  12. Hi,

    Wonderful cards.
    How do you make the backround of the stamp so it does not effect the with of the margins (of the nestabilities) Also I have been meaning to ask you wich rectangle nestability, to your opinion, is the most practical.

    And the last one LOL do you have redish stazon...I would like to but some but the colors on the sample are diffrent from the color one the pad sticker

    Here: http://www.tsukineko.com/store/cart.php?m=product_list&c=25

    Blazing Red
    StazOn - Black Cherry
    StazOn - Fuchsia Pink
    StazOn - Cherry Pink

    big dilema LOL

    Thanks :-)

  17. I would say that your little shy sweet Annie is nothing but WOW!! Love the background technique...super wow. Your mastery of the copics is far and above anyone else I know. Amazing.
    I also love the little day dreamer, so sweet. Those stamps are darling and if you know me you know I am not a big fan of the little "dolly" type stamps.


    I also want to thank you for the lovely comments and fantastic support you showed me this week. Hugs, the Oz
