For the Birds Polkadoodles challenge week 7

Heres the card I made for this week.We had to follow the sketch above and put a bird on it somewhere.I used polkadoodle free polka dot pink paper download for the owl and the border strip,and My minds eye paper for the rest.The sentiment I tried to sound like a owl hoot tried being the word.:) I cut the owl and the branch from Gypsy Wanderings.Love making these easel cards so quick and easy to do.So pop over to polkadoodles blog and see what everyones making this week.

Heres what I made for the challenge on Cricut MB.We had to use the ladybird off Doodlecharms cartridge and ribbon.I made a card satchel which Im using to put stamped images in.I got the instructions to make it from the scor-pal website its very very easy to make.I used DCWV Butterflies and Blossom stack and polka dot ribbon to nearly match.I put foam pads on the lady birds to make them pop out a bit more for dimension and then doodled and highlighted them.

Scor Pal

So I have a new toy....a shiny new Scor Pal and wow its so easy and quick to use.Before I used the crafters companion ultimate but was finding it a bit hit and miss,but now I can do everything on my scor pal.Heres a few cards I made the first day I got it for some neighbours and friends.I used some stamped images from a stamp swap on the Cricut MB.I love the lady card she looks so sophisticated(I think thats how you spell it)The usual colouring with copics and DCWV paper from the sweet stack and pocket of poises.I made some pretty envelopes to match.
