Anything Goes at Catch the Bug!

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! This week's theme is a crafter fave:

This week's theme is

I love, love, LOVE dragons, and this Clyde - Birthday image is so super sweet! I colored him with my Prismacolor Pencils and used the Gamsol Technique, which I am practicing, practicing, practicing! He is definitely better than my first attempt, I think. (I have noticed that taking pics of the pencil coloring doesn't produce as accurate results of the shading as when I color with digital measures. Sorry about that! I'm working on that, too! :0))
Something I have also decided to work on is sending out my cards more regularly. I have actually put notes in my 2013 calendar of birthdays and anniversaries, so I am hoping to do better with that than in the past; so far, so good.....of course, it is only the beginning of March! Haha!
