Delightful Challenge Thursday – Cute and Cuddly!

Good morning, how’s it going? Hope everything is good with you.

So it’s Thursday again and that means we have a new challenge at the Delightful Challenge Blog and our theme this week is Cute and Cuddly!  Sort of self-explanatory really!! J

We are sponsored by
who are offering a terrific prize of a $10 store cert!

I chose to use the ‘so-cute-I-can't-stand-it’ Jubbly Dragon for my make this time.  

Now this was the simplest design to put together! The backing card is from Hunkydory’s ‘Pearl Elegance’ kit and is a complete scene of a castle sat amongst pink hills (?) under a cloudy sky! I have had this card forever and did wonder how I was ever going to use it!  Then along came Jubbly Dragon and the card had purpose!!
So here is my dragon family! I printed off Jubbly Dragon 4 times in decreasing sizes to make a mum, a dad and 2 little ‘uns! I gave dad a bow tie, mum some pearl jewellery and the little girl a flower in her hair! The little boy didn't want any adornment. Cos he’s like totally too old for that stuff alright!!!

Don't look too closely at the perspective!  The kids on the ramparts of the castle would be massively bigger than their parents but work with me here!! Artistic license and all that!!J

Dies: Spellbinders ‘Inverted Scalloped Circles’
Punches: Tonic small daisy
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – Hunkydory Pearl Elegance ‘Castle Scene’
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers and pencils
Others: Pearls

So feel all warm and fuzzy and get yourself over to the Delightful Challenges Blog to see the wonderful inspiration created by the DT and don’t forget to visit the shop to ooh and awwww over Wendy’s wonderful cute and cuddly images!

Thanks so much for looking, and have a lovely day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
