Some more cards and a nice surprise

Here are another 2 cards I made - with boys in mind...
The first is using a Digistamps 4 Joy image - Lil dragon. I coloured him with watercolour pencils in greens and blues, and added a little orange. I used bright colours for the card and BP's. 2 dragonfly brads and a few gems. The dragon has been raised with 3D foam.

A few close-ups of the card (if you click on the picture, you can see a bigger version):

The next card is using a Mo's Digital Pencil image. This is one of my favourites to use for little boy cards. I added a few handrawn pawprints down the side of the card and added some black stickles.

Here's a few close-ups of the buttons (with embroidery thread tied in the centres), and the paw prints.

Warning: spoiler alert if you've participated in RAK 2 on in2crafts, and have not yet received your parcel.

And then the surprise. On in2crafts, a mainly South African craft forum, we have a very active group - Papercrafters Inc. We have loads of fun swapping ATC's and other papercraft related items. Theresa started a RAK swap recently were you sign up to join and send along some little goodie bags for each person signed up. Our first one proved so successful, that we recently completed another. We're already on to our 3rd (with a twist).
Here's some of the goodies I received. There is too much to mention, but in there is paper off-cuts, ribbon, stickers, lots of little embellishments and sequins ... and ... and ... and ... far too much to mention. But now I need more containers to house all these new goodies.

That's all for now.
Have a fantastic day.
