Have a Magical Day!

Hello everyone!

Hope everyone had a splendid week!  It is time for a new challenge over at Crafty Catz and this week, the lovely Janette is hosting.  She has made it very easy for everyone this week with anything goes.  So if you make any card or project this week, we would love to see it - hope you can join us!

We are being sponsored by Digital Delights and the lucky winner will receive three fabulous digital stamps.  Digital Delights has kindly provided us with images to work with this week, and for my card I chose the cute 'Augustus the Dragon.'

This week's card is very simple - I wanted to keep it masculine and I find masculine embellishments are more difficult.  I will be sending this card to the lovely folks at Card Cupids for their next card drive; having spent time in the hospital myself as a child, I think what they do is really wonderful.  Augustus was coloured with pencils, the sentiment was printed on my computer, paper is from Karen Foster and everything else is stuff from my stash.  I hope this helps brighten a little boy's day!

If you are looking for inspiration, make sure you stop by the to see the wonderful creations from the rest of the Crafty Catz DT!

I would also like to enter my card in these challenges:

A Spoonfull of Sugar - anything goes
Cards for Men - someone special
Top Tip Tuesday - one for the kids + they are having a DT call for anyone interested
My tip:  I love colouring my stamped images with Distress inks, which are extremely water reactive.  To help prevent ugly colour bleeds from one colour to another, colour your images from lightest to darkest colour - that way if you accidentally nick a finished portion with your paintbrush and it runs into the wet area you are currently working on, it won't show.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!

Hugs,

Dawn
