I Heard You Were Dragon – CTD434

You guys! It’s been over a month, but I finally got crafty again!!! Thanks goodness for good friends and regularly scheduled Crafty Saturdays! I can’t remember when I went this long without crafting. I moved at the beginning of January. And I had to clear out my storage unit. So my life for the last 2-1/2 months has consisted of moving boxes. So. Many. Boxes. Right now, I have a temporary craft room set up in my living room. My craft room is currently filled with boxes I need to sort through after emptying my storage unit. Anyway, Crafty Saturday gave me an excuse to take a break from boxes, pack up my crafty things, and spend the day crafting with friends. I took the opportunity to play along with the Color Throwdown. I used gold ink to color this cute little dragon’s horn, wings, claws, and belly. I used copic markers for the rest of him.

Paper: Smooth White, Cement Gray, Black Licorice, Gold Sparkle (MFT)

So here’s a pretty good clue that I’m running short on time – I make a card with no stamping involved. But, when it’s 9:30 on Sunday and tomorrow is a work-day, you do what you have to. 😉 So this is my (non-stamped) card playing along with the Color Throwdown.

Ink: None

Sending You Strength – CTD410


I’ve actually had this card for the Color Throwdown done for a couple of days now. But finding the time to sit down and post this? Friday after work was grocery shopping and then off to a high school football game to see my niece in the marching band. Last week we found a couple of fleas on one of the dogs, so Saturday was giving both dogs a bath plus washing all of our bedding as well as the bedding in their crates, followed by vacuuming the whole house. Good times. The dogs weren’t particularly thrilled by this turn of events either:
