Pay it Forward! Who wants some crafty goodness?

I was over at Stephany Zerbe’s blog yesterday and she has a fun thing happening. Be among the first 5 people to leave a comment and get a craft! The catch is that you, in turn have to pay it forward and a handmade craft onto 5 people, and they agree to send a craft to 5 people etc.  You have a year to get the crafts made and out. It’s like a big chain letter of crafty goodness! So are you game? If so be one of the first 5 to sign up on this post and you will get a little goody in the mail handmade by yours truly 😉

******I have my 5 Pay it Forward Peeps signed up, you can still leave a comment if you like 😉 If you want to PIF you can sign up on their blogs, just click on their names in the comment section;) **********

For you today I have made a card using sketch challenge #32 over at Oriental stamp Art. I used my Cattails #2 digital stamp (New in the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff Shop today) and my Elegant Dragonfly digital stamps.

Digital Stamps: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Paper: MAMBI, Cardstock: DCWV, Rubber stamp (chinese charecter) PSX, Other: Hot glue drops, metallic thread, Markers: Bic Mark its

Here is a close up of the dragonfly, I printed that stamp out small and colored it with my Bic Mark-its then cut it out and attached the “body: of the dragonfly to the card and gently curled the wings. I then added stickles. Tip: to minimise your printer ink from smearing when using glitter glue first color the image with permanent marker to lock the printer ink 😉

Coffee, Tea or Three?

Happy Monday folks! Nothing softens the blow of a Monday like a freebie. There was a challenge over at Oriental Stamp Art last week to make a tea themed card and this weeks challenge is to include a dragon in your card design so I decided to combine both challenges in one and share the template with you:
