Angel Annie


Hello everyone,

Busy day at work today and hardly had anytime to myself this afternoon,
but come teatime I did manage to sit down and make this card to show

This cutey from Charmed Delectables was shouting out to be coloured,
I just think she is adorable!

Once I had coloured her and the background [All in Copic Sketch Markers], I made a mask and stamped the Magnolia Love letter in brown chalk ink over her to add a little detail to the background.


The bright papers are from the same MME Magnolia paper pad that my previous 2 cards are from.. it really is just the most versatile pad [IMO]

The fancy heart border has been punched with the MS valentine lace border punch and I’ve added quite a few aqua bling dots.

I also found time to make a quick sketch of my card, I will add this to my sketches page.. and hope this will be of some inspiration for some of you 🙂


Close up of Annie:


Sorry about the tonnes of pictures.. but I just think she is sooo beautiful [and photogenic!! lol]

Got another 101 things to do and plan..
so best get to it, hope you all have a wonderful evening whatever you are doing..
For now I will leave you with a pic of the inside of my card, decorated to match 🙂

Hugs, Marlene x

    Hi Marlene
    as ever a gorgeous card hun, gob smacking colouring, fabby colours luv it all, sue,x

  • annie

    what a cute namesake! I love the bright colours in the dp – I must try brighter stronger colours but have too much pastel dp to use up first! The little leaf punch I used on my card doesn’t have a name on it, I got it at the Exeter craft fair from a stand selling clear stamps and punches – it’s a bit fiddly inking the edges as it’s so small and I’ve not seen the same design any bigger. Hopefully the same stall will be at this year’s craft fair in September – it’s one of the punches with a little lever to press rather than a button if that helps in identification! enjoy your weekend, hugs, annie x
