Appreciate a Dragon Day

Did you know that there was an "Appreciate a Dragon Day"?  I didn't until a member of the Dragons Lair Design Fan Group on Facebook mentioned it in the group earlier this week.

Well - if there's one thing that those of us in the Fan Group and the various Dragons Lair Designs Designs Team definately do it's Appreciate a Dragon, or two, or three ....!

So I just had to do a little research and find out about the day, and I also had to start a challenge in the group for group members to make any new project with any, or all, of the Dragons Lair Designs dragons on it.

It seems that "Appreciate a Dragon Day", on 16th January, was first started in 2004, so that's over ten years ago.  You can read more about it by clicking - Here!

And if you are new-ish to the word of Dragons Lair Designs you might like to have a look back at some previous posts on this blog that give you a bit of a history of two of our dragons:-
Meet the Dragons ........ Rupert (1)
Meet the Dragons .......... Rupert (2)
Meet the Dragons ........ Rupert (3)
Meet the Dragons .......... Rupert (4)
Meet the Dragons ........ Penny (1)
Meet the Dragons ........ Penny (2)
Meet the Dragons ........ Penny (3)
Meet the Dragons ........ Penny (4)

These are the creations that members of the Dragons Lair Designs Fan Group made for the quick challenge -

Just to show that dragons come in different colours Jacqui coloured in the same image, "Penny's Discovery", twice with Penny coloured in purple and in lovely golden tones.

Diane made a lovely card using the "Ruperts New Friend" digi-stamp.

And for my own creation I got out my water colour markers to colour in the "Family Photo" digi stamp, and raided my box of cut leaves and flowers for the embelishments - I really should make a point of using up more of them before the box becomes over-full of further additions.
