Cuddle a Dragon

     My second post of the day but my old computer is about to be replaced by the new one and that means I have to learn a completely new operating system!  Since I don't learn things as quickly as I once did, and since there's no "Operating System for Dummies" manual, I can only hope that it's not as difficult as I've heard from certain trusted sources.  In any case, I decided to get this one posted before the old computer goes away forever, even if I do get punted offline every few minutes.  :-D

     This image came from AuroraWings and I decided that it should be a "Bucket List" card.  That's a card which celebrates things you can now scratch from your Bucket List.

     That sweet little Snapdragon Sprite is colored with ProMarkers and die cut with a Spellbinders die.  I added glitter to his little wings for a bit of sparkle.  The mat is also cut with a larger die from the same set.  Both ribbons were n my stash and I tied a double bow.  I added the February gemstone butterfly (amethyst) and three small pearls for embellishment.

     That's it for today.  I do have a few posts scheduled this week so we'll see how things go with the new computer and, hopefully, I'll be able to get back online without any problems.  If there are problems, at least you'll have some things to see when you come over to visit my blog.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

How darling, Miss Connie! Gee, I wonder what's going on with the purple? I see it EVERYWHERE! LOL. Just adorable. It's always difficult learning new software, isn't it? We are an Apple family, and I've been trying to keep our computers, iPods and iPhones up to date with the latest, so that we do not become too comfortable in the "old, forgotten" Operating Systems LOL. But you are right, the older we get, the harder it is to UNLEARN all we know in order to RE-LEARN something new. Does "re" learn work? Or should that have just been "learn"? LOL

At any rate, your little Aurora Wings sweetheart is cute as can be - in Connie Fashion - Thanks for sharing your pretty project in the Scrapy Land Challenge! hugs and blessings, de {Creative Smiles}

Well this is certainly a fun image and I love your coloring of it. I do hope you have good luck with your new computer. I am dreading the day I have to upgrade. I like things the way they are now and I'm not so computer savvy so I don't think it will go well when I have to do it. enjoy your evening.

She's beautiful and your purple coloring and shading is super duper. If your new computer has the new Windows...Good Luck! The good news is that a more friendly version will be out in about 2 months with a free upgrade which you will definitely want. My husband has the new version and is good with the computer and hates it. You will have an awesome computer with a not so friendly Windows but the problem will be fixed soon. So much fun getting a new computer!

This is gorgeous and I love your double bow. Now what is the bucket list item - to cuddle a dragon?

Have you ever read the Dragon's Spell books by Donita K. Paul? She has "minor dragons" who are about the sizes of cats and with personalities to match.

All the best to you and your new computer. I feel for you as I don't like to learn new techy things either.

blessing hugs,
