Baby dragon

Good Monday evening everyone!! I hope you all had a good one. I was not very productive today.....how come on days I don't work, I *plan* to get a lot done, but it just doesn't happen?? I did manage a trip to the bank & to Michael's, where I bought my first *new* EK Success punch! Used my 40% off coupon, of course, so that makes it even better!! They are so cute.....so many to choose from....with a nice little lock so it stores flat. I just love it....I got "Dotted Wave"...but I can see already that I will need many more!!

Anyway, on to my card! I wanted to play along this week with the Friday Sketchers crew. They have a really fun sketch so if you are like me & are layout-challenged....pop on over for a great sketch!!



I used Baby Dragon from High Hopes for my card. I made baby a girl....I gave her a sparkly pink pacifier & a pink bow :) I know absolutely nobody who is having a baby, so I'm not sure what I will do with it, but I do like how it turned out. I used my Copic markers to color it....I think my coloring & shading is improving a wee bit. The flower is a combo punched flower (biggest one)/Primas. The sentiment is from SU's Riveting (wow, I can't remember the last time I used a SU stamp!). I used Martha's branch punch for the foliage. Added some ribbon & a heart charm, some Dew Drops, & a Sizzlit swirl. The dark green paper is Bazzill Bling Emerald City & the patterned papers are from the DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl stack. *AND* I did some stitching....I had been getting frustrated with my crooked stitching & walked away from it for awhile. Decided it was time to try again & hey...I actually did pretty well!! Maybe because I had lines to follow....lol....Yes, I do know that's what the guide is for!!



Somebody asked me why I stopped taking pictures of my insides. Frankly, I didn't know if you were interested in my insides, lol! If you're not, skip the pic. If you are....here it is....like many others I carried the sketch through to the inside so I could use the other half of the papers. I used *another* ...very old....SU set. The baby pins are from Tag Alongs....one of the very first sets I purchased. I knew I'd use it eventually, lol!!!!



Thanks so much for visiting....I hope you all have a wonderful last week of February!!!!
