Happy New Year!

We're midway through the first month of 2014 and I've been remiss in sending out my sincere and warm greetings and wishes for a very happy and healthy New Year to you.  The Mister and I are looking forward to seeing what new experiences and adventures will unfold this year.  If all goes as we hope, it is going to be a VERY exciting year.

One thing I've been doing a lot of lately is going through my crafting supplies.  Having done a tremendous amount of sewing during December I have found myself with quite the upheaval in my craft and sewing room.  Time to clean!  I haven't inked up a stamp in months and once everything was put away and the room tidy I was inspired to play with some stamps.  Thus, today's card.  I've had this adorable dragon stamp for a couple years but hadn't used it.  Time to rectify the situation!

Card Recipe:

Stamps: The Stamp Barn (Heather's Stamping Haven CHSH 112M) and Papertrey Ink
Cardstock and papers: Cardstock is Stampin' Up! the the Design Paper is from K & Company
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento Bamboo Leaves Green
Image Colored: Coloring with a combination of Prismacolor Pencils and a few Copic Markers.
Tools and Accessories: Cuttlebug circles embossing folder, Vellum for the wings, Green and yellow Stickles glitter, Prima Flowers,

This week's MOJO Monday #328 (below) provided the layout inspiration:

This was so much fun to put together.  I haven't stamped or made cards in such a long time and I've missed it.

Until next time,
