Happy Birthday Daughter

Good morning all,is it Friday 13th again...........blogger decided to upgrade me overnight and I'm not in the mood to tackle this new layout this morning!!
It's rather dreich here at the moment. I hope it fairs up over the weekend as eldest and his friends are doing a 26 mile sponsored skate-a-thon on Sunday to raise money for his Mongolian trip and hopefully I'm off to a craft show at Edinburgh tomorrow too.
Today's share is the card I made Lora for her birthday in December and forgot to post.


As she isn't a girly girl she's quite difficult to make for, however she does like dragons so this pre-coloured digi from The Paper Shelter was perfect. I printed the image several times and decoupaged it up before matting onto a nestie scalloped oval. The papers are from a very old HOTP stack which I bought from QVC many moons ago. Card is finished with some Bakers Twine, gems and a button which I recycled from one of Lora's socks.

Challenges entered:
Crafty Catz - stripes or checks
Totally Papercraft - all buttoned up
Joanna Sheen - someone special
Cuties Pies - circles
Ribbon Carousel - bright colours
Top Tip Tuesday - spotty dotty
My Mum's Craft Shop - favourite song/movie (Puff the Magic Dragon)
Paper Pretties - card for girls
Tuesday Throwdown - recycling
Paper Shelter - wings and things
The Crazy Challenge - inspired by a movie (Dragonheart)
Crafter's Companion - four legged friends
