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.
