Always Take The Scenic Route and XOXO

I have two cards and its just about to hit midnight so Im really going to keep it short tonight. I got carried away crafting curing out cards but there are a couple that need to be posted or it will be too late (or it may already be so lets get onto it).

I've used the MFT Dragon set here and the cloud stencils both the large and the small.

I used Distress inks in blues and pale lilac for the clouds, Copics for the dragons and puffs of steam.
The sentiment is actually one from from a set of sentiments from Stamping Bella and I love them and like everything I haven't used them yet so busy trying to make sure I use as much as I can.

I spent half the day looking for my dalmatian dog stamp with the little dog that I made the multi stamping with, I cut them apart to make it easier to use, well of course they are smaller. I found the sentiment but cant find the two dogs. Spent hours looking and relooking, they are gone, probably sucked up the vacuum cleaner or thrown out, who knows.

Okay I said I would keep it short, its bugging me thats all.

This next card is dark blue card stock, very dark blue, not black.

The heart is from The Ton, I cut the heart from pink and gold spotted patterned
paper, it all held together perfectly, I laid a piece of  press and seal across the front of it,
turned it over to the back, removed one piece, added glue (of course I should have added
doubled sided tape before cutting, I know!!!). 

Anyway, I laid the card onto the upside down heart and pressed down, the heart stuck perfectly.
I added the extra piece below and decided to go with a gold sparkle die cut XOXO to finish it off.

Oh so sweet with those dragons! I love the colours you chose for them. I do hope you find that doggy and it's not been sucked up the hoover! I'm impressed with your jigsaw card though. All the bits would have fallen out of mine for sure! xx
