Shape card challenge for polkadoodles

Polkadoodles are launching a fantastic new cd this week called Paper boutique . it has some fantastic shaped card templates and a scrumptious collection of papers . I have nt used the shape templates this time but i have used papers and decorative elements from the funky flowers collection . I made a few of the template cards as samples for the tv launch and i forgot to take pictures before i sent them off ! DURRR !
I cut the letter shapes with my cricut using SCAL2 and then cut out the card shape around them.
I had nt made one of these fold out name ones for ages , and seeing as its only 3 letters long it did nt take too long :)

I ♥ ProMarkers challenge - spring theme and sketch

I am very lucky to have access to all of the images available at lilyboo's boutique
I thought this was a really cute image so chose her for my entry in this weeks
I ♥ ProMarkers challenge which has a spring theme and a sketch to follow . This was an extremely difficult card to photograph as i just could nt get a good shot of it , it was too bumpy for the scanner so did nt scan well either, this was one of about 50 attempts then i gave up !

This weeks challenge at POLKADOODLESis to use a sketch designed by Kris , and to include at least one bird . I spent far too long deciding which birds to go for , there are so many on the polkadoodles cds !
I eventually decided on these cool dudes from the not for girls cd .
I cut the wicked logo from INDIE cart on my cricut .some of the birds were pre coloured and others were coloured by me with promarkers

I had nt done any of these little people cards for a while and then i had to do 3
One is for a friend's son for his 16 th birthday , his only desire in life is to be a celebrity so he got a celeb style card .
The next is for a different friend ,for her husband who spends every spare minute of the day on the dreaded FACEBOOK! so of course he had to have a facebook card - i was gutted - they changed the layout the day after i copied it !

Finally this one is for a very stylish lady who loves to shop in M&S .
Happy Birthday to all of you

Oh and i hope i'm not breaking any copyright laws by using these logo's- its advertising for them is nt it ???
