Lucky Dragon

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth...I'm still here! My blogging has been very sparse lately due to work and family commitments. Hopefully things will quieten down a bit soon and I'll be a bit more frequent here than once every fortnight.

This fortnight our challenge at The Squirrel & The Fox is Fairytale, Whimsical, Fantasy. Quite a selection lol  I hope you'll come and play along with us, we'd love to see what you do with this challenge.

For my DT project I've made another calendar page and gone with the Whimsical part of our challenge. As much as I LOVE fairy things, I don't have a use for a fairy project at present...and I'm determined to only make things that I can use in some way, not put away in a drawer! I have too many of those already lol

Isn't this little guy cute! I've gone with a St Patty's theme for my March 2014 page. This little guy is from a set called "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" digi stamps at Digi Web Studio. I did a print & cut in MTC to get that perfect white border around him and then made a shadow layer to cut in black to mat him. The calendar panel is all digi, created in MMS and matted on black also. The DP is digi from Shery K Designs and I've cropped off the hat and clover from two of the papers to use on the calendar panel.

Mister Dragon has been printed onto X-Press It blending card and coloured with Copics. The clovers and the word Luck have been coated with SU Crystal Glaze. All CS is SU...Old Olive & Basic Black.

Here's a close-up of the little man:

Considering I come from good Irish stock, I've never celebrated St Patty's Day! I guess when my parents immigrated from Ireland, they left all the traditions behind.

Please go and check out all my teamies gorgeous creations...links on my sidebar. There are some beautiful fairies there :)

Thanks for looking..........have a wonderful day :)
