Warning... Hazardous Dragons :-)

I had a small bonus this month from work, which I wasn't expecting, seeing as it most certainly wasn't enough to see us laying on a beach in the Caribbean (LOL!) it was enough for me to get some bits and bobs for the Mini, which remains an ongoing project/black hole depending on your point of view.  Anyway, HB is happy with the new suspension, whatever floats your boat!!

I decided to treat myself to some Kraftin' Kimmie stamps as I hadn't found any I liked when I went to Ally Pally earlier in the month (there was one stall selling them and they only had 3 designs!!), and was chuffed to find them discounted at Bunny Zoe's last weekend... well it would have been rude not to have taken advantage... somehow a set of Whimsy Stamps, die and this little cutie managed to find their way into my basket.

The parcel arrived today, and I was itching to get home and colour him up

Here's the first card, based on this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch

In this card I went with traditional colours for a dragon... not that I've ever seen one, but it's what I imagine :-)  The papers are Bo Bunny and MME, the sentiment came with the main stamp.  The brown (although it looks a bit olivey in the pics!) Bazzill has been edged with a MS border punch and a Lacey Circle Nestie.  Ribbon is from Scrapbook Sisters, Buttons from my stash and Jute from Ladybug Crafts Ink

I've never seen High Hopes Stamps before, but there are hundreds of them.  This one is designed by Dustin Pike

I liked it so much I repeated the card, but taking inspiration from Florrie's Dragon, a programme watched AVIDLY by my 3 year old and based on the books by An Vrombaut, and went a bit brighter :-)

The papers for this one are Bo Bunny and MME (again!!)  More ribbon from Scrapbook Sisters, Jute from Ladybug Crafts and Buttons from my stash!!  Apologies for using the same design but my brain is fried from trying to fit 5 days work into 3 and I liked it :-)

Don't tell Dragon number one but I think I prefer this one!!

Before I go, shall I tell you what the three little words are??


My 9 year old thinks it's HILARIOUS!! 

The flame is another separate stamp, so I suppose with a bit of careful positioning you could have it coming out of the dragon, somewhere :-)

Don't forget you still have plenty of time to enter the Ladybug Crafts Ink Fashion Challenge and the Scrapbook Sister Distress Challenge!!

I'd also like to enter these cards into these challenges

Right, that's me lot for today, thanks for stopping by!!
