Time's a Dragon...

Happy Thursday!
We have a super fun challenge starting for you today over at Meljen's Designs.  Use your favorite book as your inspiration!

I don't know if I have one favorite book...I've read a lot that I really love!  So it was hard for me to pinpoint a single book to draw inspiration from...but I came up with something pretty cool so let's see if you can guess which book I chose :)
Any guesses?  Come on, I know you know this!

Game of Thrones!  I've only read 4 of the books so far...I can't decide if I like watching the show and then reading the books or reading the books and then watching the show.  I feel like I get much more emotion with the show and I love that, but my husband really wants me to read the books with him so we can talk about everything that's happening...it's a big situation here :)

The main part of the series that stands out to me (and probably everyone else) is the dragons, so I picked out 3 super adorable dragon images from Meljen's Designs:  Cuddle Dragon, Dragon's Little Friend, and Sleepy Little Dragon.  I colored them all in with my colored pencils and blended them out a little bit so they had a smoother finish than what straight pencils could give.

Since I had already planned out my layout before printing the images, they were already scaled to the size I needed them so placing them on the card was easy.  I also colored up the Fairy Tale Castle image from Meljen's to have in the background.  I suppose if I was being true to the books, the hills would be brown for sand and dirt instead of grassy green...but I like the green better :)

I struggled with a sentiment so browsed around for some inspiration while playing with the words in my head to try and come up with something clever.  "Time's a dragon without ya" seemed like a really cute sentiment, and I stamped Miss You on the inside.

So stop on over to Meljen's Designs and join in this awesome challenge!  You should also check out the rest of the DT's creations as they are gorgeous like always!

  6. How utterly, utterly adorable! So very cute!
    Personally, I like reading the books first. Good as the show has been so far, they don't have a patch on the books, and no show in the world could ever compete with a person's imagination. I also find they give far too much away too soon in the TV version, so people can see things coming far too soon, which I think lessens the impact considerably.
    For me the very worst part is waiting for the next book. I'm getting - to say the least - incredibly impatient here! lol.
    Thank you for joining in at Crafting with Dragonflies.
