Just a note...

I lost my beloved German Shepherd, Shosha, to cancer on 1-6-12. The illness
was long, labor intensive and tough. Her death almost unbearable. My husband
and I felt so destitute and the house so dead.

Now we have two German Shepherds! An older rescue male and a female puppy.
Now I am busy, busy, busy, no sleep...if you've had human or doggie babies
you know the drill.

This is all to say that I had hoped to make a dynamite card because I am a
dragon. I had a fetching idea, but alas, have had to let it go through lack
of time and creative juice.

I WILL be doing my dragon card, however, just not so involved. I remembered
a cool sketch I made of a gargoyle at the Prague Castle. Does a gargoyle
qualify as a dragon? I don't know how well it will turn out as a print, but
with the inspiration of Harry French's work, maybe it will be okay.

Thanks for all the "on time" and really neat dragons that everyone has sent.
Here is a link to the Ljubljana dragon which is an icon of Euro dragons.

Ah, Europe v East on this one! Is there an African dragon? An American
dragon? An Aborigine dragon? Something to ponder.
