Dragon Dreams

     I've never been much for dragons other than occasionally singing about Puff or watching H.R. Puffinstuff on Saturday mornings when I was a kid.  And yes, I just dated myself terribly, but I bet somebody else out there watched that show too.  LOL  However, I couldn't help but smile at Tammy's new releases for A Day For Daisies.  Dragons galore!  The image I used is called "Time Out Dragon".  I'm not sure if Tammy means that he's in trouble, but I haven't seen that innocent of a face, human or dragon, in a long time.  LOL  The whole collection is just wonderful and you can find them all in the ADFD store.

     Don't forget our challenge is still going on over at the ADFD blog.  Tammy has supplied a sweet little image of some pears as a freebie and the theme is to "Get Gift~y".  We'd love to have you come play.  :-)
     Have a wonderful weekend!
