Another purple card! ... but I did add other colours :)

Good evening :)  Well to start with I would just like to say I WON A CHALLENGE!  I'm so excited!  I won with my dragon looking through the window at Stamping Dragon Card Challenge!  It's the first time I have won a challenge so I'm pretty happy.

This week I feel I have been so lucky!  I got onto the Crafting For All Seasons Design Team, and today I won one of the new stamps over at Tickled Pink Stamps and of course my win at Stamping Dragon Challenge Blog!  Woo hoo!

And to top it all off my daughter slept today ... for 1 hour in her bed then 2 hours in my lap!  And she enjoyed her swimming lesson this morning (first time ever!).

I thought today was going to be a shocker because I was up most of the night with my daughter ... I think the most sleep I got in one hit was 20 minutes .... but its turned out pretty good I think.

I'm working the night shift tomorrow night ... and perhaps the next night if they need me .... so won't be back for a while .... how am I going to manage without making any cards or looking at any blogs?  I think I will have to compensate with chocolate.  :)

Anyway you have been patient ... so here is my card for tonight .......

 Terrible lighting I know .. the colours are really much nicer than they look in this picture.  I must have taken 20 photos and still couldn't get a good one.
I have coloured the images (a Dustin Pike Dragon and a Ball that I have cut from another image) with Copic Markers in the following colours:-
BG05, BG07, BG09
V12, V15, V17
Y06, Y08
and used the following Spica Pens:-
23 Pitch Black
01 Lavender
05 Lemon
08 Turqoise

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:-
Pike's Playground - Button It
Mad For Markers - Spica Pens
Send A Smile 4 Kids - Anything Goes
Creations By Gill M #13 - Believe In The Magic
