Dragon Card

This week has been far busier and gone far faster than I expected, so I haven't managed to add my new cards to the shop yet, nor think any more about opening an Etsy shop. (-Though I think I will do that... but anyway, watch this space....)

Here is a card I made last week but couldn't show you till the recipient had it- one of Luvbug's nephews, Eoghan (Irish spelling for "Owen"). His 12th birthday was yesterday...I used adhesive 'gems' and 'pearls' for some of the dragon's scales :) and typed out the greeting in MS Word and printed it straight onto the craft paper. These papers and card are from The PaperMill.

I really like how it turned out and have since heard that he liked it too :)

Lovely card, I like dragons! The Penny Black ones are all lovely too from below, I haven't pulled out my penny black stamps in ages. I read about your biking antics, I think you are a brave person ;) I reckon I would fall off too, I think I will stick to walking...

Hi Helena! Are you home? :) I have missed you. How is the biking going? No more falls I hope.
I adore this card. He is very cute and perfect for a boy. I love the way the Irish spell certain names. Gallic is very difficult to learn. I have tried and just cannot get a grasp of it. My Granda would be disappointed.
How are things with you? Your Mum and the kits? I think of you so often. I hope all is well.
Sending hugs and Toeshee sends kitty kisses and soft paw taps.
