Two for Polkadoodles and blog candy winner.......

The challenge on Polkadoodles this week is


WINGS


now we were supposed to use stamping as well, but my polkadoodle stamps are in the USA, and as I am here in the UK, bit of a problem. So I ignored that bit.

I was asked to make a 70th birthday card for a male, so here is Mr Twitty, from the Paper Boutique CD, in A4 size. I typed the sentiment onto a tag, which the CD allows you to do quickly and easily. The specs were printed onto vellum



here's his backside!

Then I turned to the Back to Nature CD and printed out this wonderful peacock paper. I cut a few of the peacock feather tips out and pop dotted them on. Sprinkled a lot of glamour dust around, inked the edges a bit, and there you go, done in a flash


Now on to the BBTB2 blog hop, the name out of the hat (well random thingy, but I forgot to take a photo) is



DEBBY4000

Congratulations Debby, email me with your address, and I will get your goodies in the mail

We are going to Ikea tomorrow, some of you may remember our last trip there. I certainly do. I think I may park Mike in front of a plate of meatballs and collect him later. I have made a list. Did I ever tell you how much I love lists? My daughter has inherited the list gene, that's my girl. I buy her these magnetic list things you put on your fridge, she USES them. I have been known to make lists of lists I have to make. Oh yes, I frequently put something on a list that I have already done, just for the satisfaction of putting that tick by it, and when my list gets too untidy, I make a new one. A touch of the OCD appearing here I think..............worrying isn't it?

The owl is just precious and what a great idea for his glasses! OMG, we are so much alike - I am a list maker too (I take a lot of kidding about my lists too); but, the funny thing is I do just like you and put things on the list that I've already done JUST so I can check them off! ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!

Love it,
Jackie

I love both of your cards and the way you did the glasses is too cute. It looks that that CD has alot to offer. Congrats to Debby, wish it had been me. I also love lists. I use those magnetic list pads also. I even have one with the days of the week on it.

Lovely cards, Enfys!! Super cute owl and peacock... :-)

And as for your list story; I'm glad I have company in this world ;-) I am also quite a list maker. I put up magnets on my fridge too and keep attaching lists to them; I have a holiday list notebook which details out what goes into each suitcase for DH, DS and me; I have grocery and vegetable shopping lists in another handmade paper notepad and plenty more!! :-)

Hugs,
Smita
