Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

First off I want to start by saying Thank You to each and everyone of you that play along in our challenges. You guys are the ones who make this blog a success and I am so happy that is has continued to be successful since I took it over in June.

There will be no more challenges until January 19, 2011. The Design Team and I will be taking a break during the Holidays. And, my hubby is due home any day now from Afghanistan for some well deserved R & R, so I need to concentrate on him and not the blog. =0)

But have no fear, we will be coming back with a BANG!! We have lots of great challenges and some AMAZING sponsors lined up for you in the new year! I would like to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to our 2010 sponsors...You guys ROCK!!!

Okay, so with all that said, the Design Team and I would like to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!!

We'll see you in 2011!!

Hi my name is Janette aka Stampin Dragon Designs/Dragons Lair Designs, I live in the UK with my two children and puddy tat I started with Graphic Design in 2001, initially creating sig tags in AOL groups, after all the red tape came in on what you could and couldn’t do with the art i decided to have a look around for something else, and found digital scrapbooking, it wasn’t long before i started making my own kits under the Dragons Lair Designs name and the rest as they say is history, last year i was introduced to digital stamps and started drawing and Stampin Dragon Designs was born I am now not only addicted to scrapbooking my photo's but making cards too all i need now is more hours in a day.
