Magical Dragons, Birthday Bears, and Cocktails

Hi there!  It's been a while. Sometimes you need a break to recharge.  I finished with all of my design teams earlier this year and with no commitments looming I was looking forward to easing off paper crafting a bit and enjoying some books and TV in the evening.   I didn't mean to disappear completely, but a pinched nerve causing some severe neck and arm pain waylaid me for three months!  An MRI and physical therapy later and I'm starting to feel up to dabbling in the craft room again.  I've made a few CAS cards during my hiatus, but I'm looking forward to finding my mojo again and getting back in the swing of things.  

Luckily my injury didn't impede my ability to shop for crafty items!  ;-) . So I have lots of new goodies to play with!

I thought I would use this week's sketch from My Favorite Things Stamps.  I had colored up this adorable dragon from their Magical Dragons clear stamp set and thought he'd make a great birthday card!  Here is my take on sketch #439:

Isn't he darling?!?!  If you want to see all the entries for this challenge you can visit the MFT Stamps blog HERE!  If you want to shop, go HERE!

I've made a few other MFT Stamps cards as well. I'll share them here for the sake of getting caught up.  If I continue to feel good maybe I can start crafting and posting a little more regularly again.

I made a quick and cute birthday card for a co-worker with this retired Birdie Brown Birthday Bears clear stamp set.  All of the dies are from MFT Stamps as well.

The next card two cards have no coloring and feature only a stamped sentiment and die cuts.  The first was a Mother's Day order.  It was a last minute request so I threw a little something together after I was told she loved Cosmos.  Cheers!

This last card was another birthday card for a co-worker for his big 3-0!  Simple yet fun, right?

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope all of you out there have been well!  Have an awesome week!
