I Heard you were…

Hello, It is the middle of the month and time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues! Sheri has chosen a color combo that I really, really love…Aqua and Black. I just adore these dragons from MFT, don’t you? A dear friend of mine’s hubby was having some heart issues and I made this especially for him. Over at Color Hues we have the fabulous Trina Pham joining us as our guest!

Here is a close up of my cute dragon.

Card Details: Dragon, sentiment, and both types of clouds are MFT. The stars are dies also and from Your Next Stamp. I used both Copics and Prismas as my medium.

There is no shortage of inspiration over at Color Hues by the Design Team and Trina, come be inspired! Nanc’

For this Child, I Prayed

Hello, It is the 5th Sunday of the month so it is time for the fun Tic Tac Toe Challenge over at The Paper Players. Laurie has come up with a fun board for us to pick from. I don’t know about you but I really enjoy these types of challenges, as it gives you so many different options to chose from. I have chosen the top row of die-cut, animal, and scene.

Card Details: I used a negative heart stencil and an MFT cloud stencil to make my cloud background. The cute dragons are also from MFT and they are colored with Copics and Prisma Colored Pencils. The cloud dies are also MFT and I didn’t like them stark white so I took a regular number 2 pencil and my finger and gave them some smudgy shading. I pulled out an older Verve stamp set for my greeting. I am pretty pleased with how this turned out and I can’t always say that. ;). I even gave the momma dragon some eyebrows.

For more fabulous inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team!

Oh,What an Imagination!

My son Tyler has always loved to read and many years ago he read a book called Fire Within, where the character sculpts dragons that in turn come to life.  Well to make a long story short, he asked his dad to bring some clay home from school so that he may try his hand at sculpting his own dragon.  The dragon came out fantastic!!  It is a praying dragon that absolutely touched my heart!  It’s obvious that some his father’s artistic talents rubbed off on him.  It is one of Tyler’s pride posessions to this day!  It shows how important reading is to a child!!!  It sparks so many other avenues of inspiration!   Read to your child often!!!

Happy Scrappin and Reading,
