Birthday Dragon

Good morning! I hope you are had a great weekend. This post is scheduled since I'll be at the courthouse for jury duty today rolleyes. I'm really hoping I don't get picked, but if I do that's where I'll be all week, so I'm not sure how much I'll be around. I do have another post scheduled for Wednesday though. I think it's ridiculous that they make 65 people come down there, when they only need 7-12. On the bright side though, we have a second car now! We actually got it a few months ago, but we just got tags and all that, so I can get a job now! Or I guess with this economy, I should say try to find one.
So isn't this dragon just about the cutest thing you've ever seen?! This is a free digital stamp by Dustin Pike. This the first time I've tried digital stamps, and I love them! It's so nice to be able to make images any size you want, you don't have to store them and I can blend as much as I want with out the ink bleeding. I LOVE this image! There is another dragon for Easter that is really cute too. I had it all colored and ready to stick on a card when I ruined it. It was laying on the table as I was coloring the image on another card, and it was under an open pink Copic I was using. I figured I better get it out of the way before I got ink on it, so I carelessly picked it up with the marker still on top of it and managed to draw a pink line through most of the image rolleyes. Oh well. I guess I can just consider that one practice wink. I got the idea for the clouds from Michelle Redman. She used a dauber with a scallop circle, but I don't have any daubers, so I used a sponge. It was so easy!
