Aaaaa, Saturday!!

I love Saturday...
A slow wake up, a cup of tea and pouring over the amazing inspiration in everyone else's blogs!! Love it!!

Last night I watched the opening ceremonies for the olympics!! Weren't they awesome!! The light display was incredible and that poets poem. He was fenominal!! And I also loved when Katy Lang sang. Her voice just radiates through your bones. Both my husband and I had chills. Since the olympics are happening in my own backyard - in live in Vnacouver - it's not hard to get caught up in the buzz and excitement!! It's here - so I might aswell enjoy it!! Welcome world!! We love having you in Vancouver!!

Anyways, on to a few cards and a littlE selfish project...
the first card was created for the
MG Sketch Challenge
I used the colour challenge over at Color Dare
(love this little guy)

here are the copics I used to color him and a close up of the little guy :

Stay tuned for more from this little dragon!! I love him and I know I'm going to use him again soon!!

And here is a card I created for the Color Throwdown :
(simple and sweet)

And now onto my selfish project.
A few weeks ago I create a notebook cover for the notebooks I used to keep track of different crafting inspirations, challenges ect. I read a comment from that post saying that I lady uses one by her computer and keeps one in her purse. What a great idea!! So I had this adorable paper and here's what I created!!

I LOVE owls and I knew once I saw this paper I had to have it!! The only problem... it was in a paper pack!! So of course, I ended up buying the whole paper pack!! Oh well, I know I'll use the other paper. It is very cute paper - Berry Sweet by K and Company.

Well, have a good weekend!!
