My mom has always been a fan of Peter, Paul, and Mary, so when I saw that Peter Yarrow was coming to town in May, I knew what to get her for Mother's Day. I e-mailed the woman in charge about getting tickets and mentioned that they were going to be for Mother's Day. Imagine my surprise when she e-mailed back inviting us to meet Peter at a restaurant afterwards!
Ever since this came up, I've had the song Puff the Magic Dragon in my head and I wanted to make a card with Puff on it. Unfortunately, there are not many dragons on the Cricut carts. There is one on a Paper Dolls cart, but it has no layers. I decided to use a dinosaur from Create a Critter and attempt to make him look dragon-like. I cut out a bat from the Holiday Cakes cartridge and cut it in half to make wings. I cut out some ears and a little spike for the tip of his tail by hand. I think it worked pretty well, except I'm not completely happy with his face (which I used my Cricut markers on.) I think she'll get the idea though :) Because of the musical theme, I ran the white background through the Cuttlebug Allegro folder. The sentiment was printed from my computer.
