    Gerry it turned out very well. I like the cote of arms. Is that also in the dragons world?
    I have to orientate me because I have to work on a RR with 2 dragon blocks in it :)

    Hi Gerry!

    You found some great buttons for this! I love the shield and sword as well as the way you attached the rick rack. The cluster of buttons adds a lot, too....very creative. Does this block go along with the Dark Tower one?

    I love him also. I'm a sucker for dragons. I think those scales need a little bit of sparkle, don't you?

    Thank you so much for your kind words and the suggestions. I think I will try some sparklies on the scales. And maybe a few beads in upper right hand corner.

    No, this block is not part of a swap/project for a group.

    Happy Easter!!!!

    Beautiful block. I love your spider with his legs crossing! Great web with the flower coming through, too.

    Good job, Mindy picking up on those eggs. LOL. And I do love a spider and web on a block. Kuddos to you Susan for noticing the crossed legs! You two are on it. LOL.

    Some of the buttons came as gifts in swaps. I really liked them when I got them but I love that they were so perfect for the project.

    The shield and sword were a fluke. I got fed up trying to make an egg. And I do like the way it turned out - Thanks!

    Such a great theme that you've done amazingly! I love the flower vine through the web with the pearl spider!
