I’m happy to be back after a few week’s break whilst refurbishing my holiday home and was pleased to learn that my previous card was chosen as top three over at The Sisterhood of Crafters for their pink challenge.

I also had a week’s holiday in the UK staying with my crazy sister from Crafting with Mabel, oh what a time we had mainly crafting and shopping for crafting supplies. I was able to bring back lots of goodies that I can’t get here in Greece, my suitcase was full to the brim it was a close call as to whether or not I would leave my clothes behind but decency prevailed.

July just so happens to be my birthday month so when I saw that Addicted to Stamps and More’s challenge this month was Birthdays then I just had to take part.

I just love this dragon die it’s from the Colorize series by Tim Holtz I had so much fun even if it did take forever to make. I’m wondering if the dragon is giving the little birdie the egg as a present or is it the birdie giving the dragon the egg to keep warm, what do you think?

The background was created with distress inks splashed with water, Dina Wakely’s gloss acrylic was sprayed over the top although you wouldn’t know it was gloss from the photo. Another Tim Holtz die for the cactus and distress inks used to colour both the dragon and cactus. The sentiment is from Spellbinders hot foil range and the little birdie has fallen out of its packet so I don’t know who it’s by.

I’m also entering into The Critter Crazy Challenge who are asking for real or imaginary critters as its feature.

Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies is up and running so am entering there also.

I do hope you are all well and look forward to catching up with you all but in the meantime do pop over to the above blogs as they have some amazing cards to inspire us.

Take care

  1. Firstly,you’re the crazy sister, secondly what clothes? you’re a naturist!
    I know the amount of work that went into this and it’s absolutely stunning! You have such good skills and your colour choices and use of products is spot on. I am in awe of your work 🥰

  2. I love your work nearly as much as your Sister! This dragon is adorable, so many details and I can see how many layers, so it would have been a time making it, but the end result is just fabulous as is your background. So good to see you posting again. Perhaps a red dragon next time, not that I’m biased or anything! Have a great week and as I’m here with 2 hats on I’ll say – Thank you so much for joining us in our challenge at Critter Crazy Challenge this week. Good Luck and I’m looking forward to seeing you again in our next challenge.

  3. I love this little scene you made with the dragon and the bird Marie. I think they’re having a chinwag about all the eggs they’ve hatched over the years! Loving the sprayed background and the foiled sentiment. Glad you had a lovely time visiting your sister. I think you might have to bring a bigger suitcase next time! Vicky x

  4. Sounds like you and your sister had the loveliest time! And I can totally understand about leaving the clothes behind, that would be the obvious choice if you didn’t have the room in your case lol. ps I love your dragon too, he reminds me of Pete!

  5. What a fun card, Marie, and the dragon was certainly worth all the time you gave to it with the fabulous layers you produced. Sounds like you holiday was great fun and now you can play with all your new goodies!
    Take care,
    Hope you are keeping cool,
