I am really pleased with how this card turned out! I was just winging it, no layout in mind, and this is what happened! I like it!!! I tried the technique from My Favourite Things to work "out of the box", so I have the end of the sword sticking out of the image box. The sentiment is from the Doodle Factory fairy tale set. I added crystal effects on the sword and shield - I'm sorry you can't really see the dimension. Tim stole my lamp that I use to take photos so he could rebuild his RC truck! MEN!!!! LOL
This is BooBoo dragon - hilarious eh? I really wanted him to be the focal point so I kept the layout really simple. I popped him out too. I think he is adorable even with all the boo boos!!!!
Hope you are having a great Saturday! I am off to a family BBQ - my nephew is turning 15...OMG I feel old!!!!!! I will post his card I made tomorrow!

The dimesions are 10 1/2 x 5 for the base. Score at 1.75, 2.5, 4.25, 6, and 8.25 inches. Fold it accordion style so the small side is in the front and folded down.
The DP is just cut 1/4 inch smaller but that is just personal choice, you can cover the whole thing or not at all.
These images were all from my good friend JACQUE who felt bad for me cuz I didn't have my Magnolia Spring Kit yet (It is STILL NOT HERE by the way....hmphhhhh!!!!) I love the little bugs that came with it, they are sooo cute!!!! Edwin chasing butterflies is adorable isn't he? I thought I'd add a sentiment inside one of the folds that says "Hope your day is full of fun".
Here is a side view of it. IF Edwin wasn't so tall, it would fit in a normal A2 size envelope but alas, he is too tall. If you used a different image, you could easily get it to fit in a regular envelope, just measure it before you glue it on.
Anyways, I am really pleased with how this turned out!!! I think I am going to use this idea for my next Card Workshop!!!! :) Thanks for hangin' out here!!!!

Not crazy about this card but Tim likes it, so I decided to post it. I'm not sure what it is - just not a "wow" card like I was hoping for!!!! The card base is a pre-made one from a box I got at Michael's EONS ago! Trying to USE up what I have!!!
I used my Baby Words cuttlebug folder for the background on this card. The little chipboard tag was bought on my shopping trip - from JoAnns - a whole little bag of them for $1! Can't go wrong with that either!!! LOL I am SO sad that Canada doesn't have a JoAnns or Hobby Lobby.....we are SOOOO ripped off in the craft store department!!!

The stamps in this kit are very cute and I couldn't wait to ink them up!!!
The sketch I used is from the Just Magnolias challenge blog last week or the week before, but I liked it so I wanted to use it!
The plaid DP is from My Mind's Eye - I had been hoarding it, and thought she would look really cute in a plaid dress! Her dress & hat are paper pieced. The sentiment is an epoxy sticker from Fiskars that I got on my shopping trip! I added a shiny red mini brad to her dress and a couple primas to tie in all the colours of the DP. The rest of her is coloured with copics.
Thanks for dropping in!! I was busy yesterday creating, so I will have more to show you tomorrow!!! And then a couple things I made for the Simon Says Challenge that I can't show you right away until we reveal the NEW challenge!!!
