Happy New Year 2019

Hi Dragonfly friends. 

Just letting you know that Dragonflies will be closing.

I have enjoyed your wonderful company as have the Dragonflies. Due to health reasons, and needing to take more care of myself, family commitments, I made the decision to close.

The girls as all sad but also understand.
I am also taking more time to paint. I started learning how to paint with water colours 2 years ago. Love doing Water colours now and and a few other mediums. 
Time to relax more and try something different.
Thanks to all who took part in our wonderful card challenges, it would not have been a card challenge without you. 
Big Dragonfly hugs from us all. Blessings Hilde and the Team.

If you are interested to follow my personal Instagram account, where I post a lot of my art, you will find it under

I also have a fb page for the art and it's under

# 118 - Large Christmas Tag -last challenge for the year

Big Dragonfly hugs, hope you are all well. This will be our last challenge for 2018. We are giving our Design Team a well deserved rest to get ready for the busy season.

Please keep a look out for the top 3 of the last challenge in next Saturdays post. 

Nothing like a beautiful large tag to get the creative juices flowing. So we are asking you to make a large Tim Holtz type of tag. So they are approx. 15 cm long and around 6 cm wide. You don't need to have the die , just ball park it and you got it. Most of us have a hole punch for the top. Too easy.
I have often just used a normal card size ( C6) and cut them out from front and back of the card so you get two. No drama

Let's see your wonderful works ( I have often used these instead of cards, specially when I have forgotten to send one, lol.) and attached it to the present, or gift or anything I was handing over.

But having said all that, what ever tag you can manage is fine.
Blessings Hilde
