Crafting with Dragonflies has it's moments!

Mostly caused by me! I am late again - of course. I have made my card for the challenge now though and will hope that the recipient does not see this before tomorrow!

Meantime - Happy Easter weekend!


Hope those bunnies begin hopping for you early tomorrow morning!
Remember, chocolate is NOT the reason for the season - 
but it makes our hearts happy!

Hilde want's us to make a Criss Cross card with a tag

Not sure what that was? Neither was I but Hilde sent us to a good tutorial
She has put the link on the main blog at


Now, my card was made for a birthday
That person has recently acquired a new Springer puppy
Her daughter has got one too - and like all good children is still living at home
That means there are two puppies to be house trained.......and create chaos!
Not only that, there is already a dog at the house - Sammy's nose it a bit out of joint too

Then there are the three cats.......they really didn't want this to happen!
The good news is that daughter is moving house soon - there is just a cross over period...
.....and chaos!

So - a criss-cross card is suitable!


I used SU Designer Papers and some glittery tape on the front
TH's Crazy Animals came in usefully here.....


Coloured with Copics - Maggie is a tri and has orange eyebrows!
She belongs to the house and will stay


The tag inside is the birthday message


I had fun with pixie powders to create the chaos look!
The brother is called by me Mr Fat Bottom!
Sammy is a King Charles Spaniel


I had to mask and stamp a few times here

After all that chaos - here is a tranquil scene of Autumn beauty in Tasmania


The drive through the rolling hills of the Huon Valley, in Southern Trove Tasmania, is super scenic, with orchards and wineries. In autumn, the golden heart of the apple isle is next level picturesque! Go for a stroll along the river and enjoy the colourful reflections.
