Birthday Dragon

There's another great challenge starting today over at Creative Craft Challenges. We would like to see something "for the kids". This can either be a card or any other project as long as it is something for a child. 

We have 2 great sponsors for this challenge...

I used a Dustin Pike image to create my card. I chose this "CupCakeDragon" image as it is perfect for my niece's birthday. Lilly is not a girly girl, so I could use all kinds of colours... which I did *LOL*... Well, when I asked her what she wanted to have for her birthday, she looked at me and asked if I could bake some muffins/cupcakes for her birthday... She didn't even want to talk about presents, just the muffins/cupcakes. Isn't she a cutie?!?

So here's the cupcake card for her birthday.









Stamp: „CupCakeDragonB” from Dustin Pike

Confirmation Boy

Today it is the Confirmation of my younger cousin Adrian, so I've been doing an appropriate card for this occasion last night.
It had been quite a struggle to find a matching image as I could mostly find images for the Holy Communion only, but Adrian is 14 now, so he doesn't look like a small boy anymore... In the end I got lucky and found one at Karen's Doodles.



To the inside I've been adding a nice quote:
"The one who abandons God, is turning off the sun, to walk further with a lantern."

Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castell
Sketch: Sketch Saturday
