So-oh-oh Old !

     My sweet SIL has a birthday this month and, for some reason, I get so tied up in Valentines and my granddaughter's February birthday that I forget about his.  But this year I figured out how to handle that and the humor should bring a sunny smile to his face.  :-D


     The cute dragon is "Clyde" from Bugaboo stamps and I colored him with my ProMarkers in Mardi Gras colors (gold, green & purple) to celebrate a February birthday.  I used one of my earliest Spellbinders dies to cut the image and both sentiment pieces.

     I used two shades of gold paper to make the background and added one little burlap bow.  Since it's a guy card, I left it without further embellishment.  It has great open space (even though it's not white space) and makes a wonderfully fun, CAS card.  It took less than 30 minutes to make and most of that was spend coloring the image.  :-D

     For those of you still buried under snow from the weekend storms in the middle and eastern US, bundle up and spend time crafting.  For those of you roasting down under, crank up the air conditioning and stay cool in the craft room.  I'm going to sit here and listen to raindrops on the patio cover while I make another card.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

I think you missed getting in trouble with SIL with this darling care. No one could be upset if they received this one a bit late. I remember Clyde and you did a fine job with him. Enjoy those rain drops and I'll stay in here out of the cold. No snow today thank goodness.
