Polkadoodles Challenge 22 – Birds with Attitude

Friday, 16 October 2009

I don’t seem to be getting much done between the Polkadoodles challenges and everything else and another week has flown by. Another fabby sketch from Nikky this week, plus we could use any CD and any stamps. Check out the new  double CD Not for Girls which has gone really well on Create & Craft. It contains so much inspiration for making cards for men, something that is always so hard to do. One of the elements are these birds with attitude, they are sooooo cool. Just perfect for the dude in your house.
