A Little of This and That

Variety is the Spice of Life


I've been trying out some new digital images lately. This Raggedy Ann and Andy is public domain artwork that I found on a coloring book site. I'm not sure, but I think this was drawn by Johnny Gruelle, Ann's original creator. I've always loved Raggedy Ann, and when I saw this vintage image, I knew it would make a great Get Well card. The sentiment was computer-generated. The inside says, "Hope this finds you on the mend!"

DP: Basic Grey
CS: SU! Brilliant Blue & PTI White
Punches: Martha Stewart. Leaf, Cosmos, Branch, Hydrangea, and Border-SU! Circles
Accessories:Tiny Buttons, Gold Wire, Grosgrain Ribbon, Pearl Cabochons, Mounting Tape, Glue Dots
Colored with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils

The very tiny Raggedy Ann & Andy were made by Gail Wilson, a New Hampshire doll maker. (I bought them at the League of New Hampshire Craft Fair several years ago and never told my husband how much I paid for them! Sssh!) They are sitting in a miniature hand-made Adirondack chair from my collection of miniature chairs.

 This card uses an image from Sassy Cheryl's
  Several of my fellow members on Mo's Design Team are also on Chery's team, so I thought I'd try out a one of her images. I have to say that I wasn't interested in them at all until I saw them colored up! Those girl's do a great job with them! Now there are a few that I'd like to have.
