Never Kick a Sleeping Dragon!

Hello, all!  It's the middle of the week again and I have given my blog another spiffy little facelift.  Well, I changed the wallpaper and furniture out again, at least.  I started to go ahead and decorate for the upcoming holidays but I thought that my readers might get a little sick of it by the time Christmas arrives so I decided to go with a fall theme for now.  I realize that snow has already fallen in several regions of the country so it may seem like winter has already arrived to some of you.  However, it has been beautiful here lately!  I never thought I would be able to say that again during the dreadful summer we had but fall finally did arrive on velvet wings.  It has been cool at night and sunny and warm during the day.  No sweaters needed most of the time but we have had a cool snap already and another one is due to arrive sometime today or tonight.  I guess it's time to drag out the cool weather wardrobe such as it is.

Soooo... today I have a cute little card that I made a while back but never got around to posting.  This is one of those multi-purpose cards that I love so much because it can be used for a number of occasions or no occasion at all.  Sometimes I like to give cards just to let someone know that I value their love or friendship and this could serve that purpose too.  This cute dragon was is another Phee McFaddell design and I just thought he was so adorable sleeping with his pillow and blankie!  I have a couple of other images Phee drew that have dragons in them and they are for Christmas!  Wait until you see them!  I have not yet colored them so it will still be a while before I'll have them ready to post here but I thought I would give any of you dragon lovers a heads up.  Haha!

Isn't he a cutie?  He was, of course, colored with Copics.  The DP is adhesive-backed cardstock from K & Company and the sentiment is made up of alphabet stickers by Sticko that I adhered to white cardstock sqares and edged with chalk ink and then layered onto blue cardstock squares and popped up on foam tape.

I am entering this card in the following challenges: TBD

Thanks for stopping by today.  I don't know if I'll have time to post another project before the weekend when it will be time for a new Paper a la Mode challenge at The Outlawz.  Then next week will be the launch of the new Joy's Life design team.  Joy decided to divide her team into 2 groups and I will be in Group 2 so we aren't scheduled to post our first project until the 16th but group 1 will post theirs next week on the 9th.  We are all very anxious to show you all the wonderful things we'll be creating with Joy's fabulous stamps.

So, until next time...

Happy crafting!
