 Hello! Thank you for stopping by.  I appreciate your visit.

For today's card share - this honestly was a labor of love.  You see, I am not so great with a craft knife, but patience, perseverance and a sore finger, I created what my mind saw!

This is actually a stencil!  I traced the image onto some white card stock and then proceeded to take the next couple of hours to cut it out using a craft knife.  We all admire people with knife skills - kitchen or craft room.  I remember going to a crop years ago and watching a guy cut out a page for his wife's scrapbook.  I'm telling you - this guy was a human laser cutter with that knife.  I was so envious!

Anyway, after I cut out the image and put in LOTS of dimensional foam tape to section off the dragon from the book and filled it with sequins that I have had in stash for a lot of years!  As I am organizing my craft room I am discovering a ton of supplies that I need to use.

I absolutely love the sentiment I chose for this card.  It says "Growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional."  Is that not the most perfect for a storybook theme?

Well, what do you think?
