Do you think I have a thing for Dragons - Basicgrey Challenge 38 + A huge announcement

Good morning everyone, did you all have a fantastic weekend?, I hope you had a brilliant one...well I got all set to do my blog hopping and was really getting into it when my internet connection went, so I decided to have a little mooch in my craft room...well three hours later I returned to the hopping, see how easily distracted I am lol...I did loads of hopping and managed to catch up with loads of you and even did some challenge commenting too, what a good girl I am...right my card for today is using the lush sketch from Basicgrey challenge...do you think I have a thing for Dragons, I cant resist the cuties, this one is a Digi from CC Designs from All That Scraps, hes called Cinder hes so sweet isn't he, if you want it in rubber Nikki has it here at Bunny Zoe's...the fab papers are of course Basicgrey from the Marjolaine collection, this is double sided and called Coffee Cake, I added a scrunched ribbon and some buttons, one threaded with seam binding, the sentiment is from Whiff of Joy...Im off out tonight which is rare for me but my local craft shop Crafters and Co are having a relaunch night and I couldn't resist a little nosey to see what new goodies they have, I'm bound to find something I really cant manage without...its Sara the owners fault I'm addicted to paper so you cant blame me...have a fantastic day everyone oh and the winner of my candy is below...I will be back with the new candy from Bunny Zoe's Crafts in a few days so watch out for it
