Monster/Alien Swap

Good morning, and happy Friday! Another weekend is upon us, and I'm VERY ready!! I think DH and I are going to spend the entire weekend at my Aunt's lake house, relaxing, soaking up some sun, and doing absolutely NOTHING!! I think I can handle that for a couple of days!!;-)
My card for today is one that I made for a swap held by my dear and sweet friend Kelly. She hosted a Monster and Alien swap on Splitcoaststampers. I didn't really have any stamps to fit that bill, but when I saw this adorable dragon, I asked her if this one would be okay, and I'm glad she was good with it, because I really wanted to add him to my collection.
When my new Stampin' Up order came, I just HAD to use that new embossing folder, and the "HI" sizzlets die, which both embosses and cuts. You will recognize that ribbon from several of my posts lately, as I have a HUGE spool of it. I love the widith and the fact that it holds it's shape so well for bows, etc..., so I'm using the heck out of it! I hope the other swappers like my take on this swap, and I can't wait to see what I get back!
Have a glorious weekend, my friends! May God bless and keep you today and always!!
Love Ya!

He is super cute! Love the coloring and embossing!

I would agree that dragons traditionally fall into the monster category, but this little guy looks pretty friendly! Hope he comes to my house to visit! ;)
