The freebie image for Dragons Lair Designs Facebook Group challenge is a broken egg! Now I know it could be a broken Easter egg but we are talking Dragons Lair so I thought -hatched dragon! It just so happens that there is a lovely digi stamp of Jiggy hatching and the top of his egg is missing so I added that image to my broken bits of egg.

Dragon’s Lair Designs – Jiggy’s Hatchday
X-Press it card
A5 white card blank
Mein Lila Park – Brown Polka Dot Paper (free)
It took a while to work out the positioning of the two images so that one did not run into the other. A black fineliner pen filled in any gaps quite successfully.
The brown paper comes as brown and while so I coloured in the dots with the brightest green from the combination I used on the dragon.
The sentiment comes with the Jiggy’s Hatchday digi stamp.
I have entered this card into some challenges with Spring as the theme because spring heralds a flurry of new birth in nature; flowers, trees, animals, and birds are all busy producing the next generation.
Dragons are not the only ones concentrating on family, our garden birds are busy refreshing or rebuilding their nests and there is a growing sense that Spring has arrived to stay this time. I popped out into the garden this afternoon and there was a lot of bird song going on. The frogspawn is developing and not far off hatching and the water Iris is just poking out above the water. The trees are growing ever greener as leaf buds and young shoots develop and there are more trees in blossom on my route to work. With all that and glorious sunshine and blue sky it certainly feels more like spring, could do with being a tad warmer though!
Thanks for popping by. Take care.
