Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly
We are under construction here at the Diamond Dragonfly for a while longer.
SparkPlug has required constant care this past week. Last night when I took him to see Dr. Als at the Orleans Veterinary Hospital,  I thought we wouldn’t be bringing him home however he now has a new lease of life. He required antibiotics ( an injection that will work for two weeks) ear drops, special shampoo and an oral corticosteroid. I am so thankful.
I have been working in the Studio and had planned a relaxing time to make my card for this challenge.  Company arrived and stayed.

I debossed the DP with Butterflies to give some depth. The filigree Butterflies were to be shined up with stickles which would not come out of the bottle. As I was about to re-pierce the opening about one teaspoon plopped out onto the wax paper. So I just dipped them into the gooey mess. I like the shine

Another fun, family friendly, challenge with a wholesome sentiment, and ‘”of course” it’s always “Anything Goes” as far as styles or projects.
This is our 198th challenge. Thank you so much for taking time to share your wonderfully creative art with us. We appreciate your participation and we love seeing your creations.
Word Art Wednesday………………………….AG with a family friendly sentiment and theme

Congratulations to the winners from last week.  Once again, we had many beautiful entries. All your cards and projects are extremely inspirational.
Here is some FREE digital word which you are welcome to use BUT it is not required. Thank you for stopping by.
Karen has great things planned for our 200th challenge? It seems like there are to be lots and lots of outstanding prizes.

What a pretty card Carole - love the string of sequins, and the sheen and sparkle on the butterflies.
Sorry to hear Sparkplug has had so many problems, but it is good to know that he is on the mend now.
