Critter Sketch Challenge Monday

Happy Monday everyone! Did you have a wonderful weekend? Mine was pretty good except that we took Jon to the airport on Saturday and he is now at his first duty station, Alaska. It is certainly hard saying goodbye but he is doing what he's always wanted so good for him!

Anyway, onto today's card. This is my first Monday of the month for the Critter Sketch Challenge. This month's sponsor is Stamp and Create. You really should go check them out. They have tons of different stamps and a great clearance area too! This week's challenge on their blog is Dragons (and so is ours so you can put your card in for both challenges!) so I just had to use a dragon on my card. Isn't he ADORABLE? I thought this little guy would be super cute on a baby card so that is what I went with. The patterned paper I had in my stash and while cute I decided I wanted the card to be a little special so I embossed the yellow then punched the star out of it. A little sponging and some glitter pen finished the star off. Then on the left side of the main image panel I used the heart border punch. Not matchy matchy but I really like it.

So there you have it! Jump on over to the Critter Sketch Challenge blog to check out our challenge for this week and then be sure to check out the rest of the design teams cards, too!

That is the cutest dragon I have ever seen. Great job on the card. I love it!!!
What base is your son at. We came to California via Alaska, Anchorage and LOVED it there. We actually plan on retiring there when my hubby does his 20 years. Just about 7 years to go. He is getting there at a rought time. Snow is already on the ground and it is getting darker by the hour. I am sure he will enjoy it though.
