Warning! this post contains some really bad puns.

Polkadoodles friday is here again, I can't believe how quickly the weeks are flying by.
This week's challenge was set by the lovely Miria, who is a romantic Italian, and her theme is That's Amore!, she wants to see your cards and projects inspired by a  love song or film.
My card was made using the cute owl stampie, and pretty papers and flowers from the Sugar Birdies Collectors Edition CD Rom. I made a frame from one of the papers, which is raised on foam pads, and the owl is layered up to give a 3d effect, I also changed the wording in the banner he was holding, added some buttons from stash for the flower centres and a bit of glamour dust around the frame and there you have it.
Now, I can hear you all asking, but what love song is it, apologies in advance for this next part, it's (oh no - here it comes!) 'Owl always love you' by that brilliant artiste T-wit-ney T-woo-ston, sorry.... I just couldn't resist LOL!




I hope you can forgive me for the bad puns and join us for this weeks challenge over at Polkadoodles.

Also a quick reminder, Nikky will be demonstrating in Samuel Taylors at Embsay, Skipton tomorrow(Sat) between 11am and 4pm so if you are in the area call in and see what she's up to!

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Card Makin' Mamas- Valentine
Creative Stamp Friends - Valentine
Pear Tree Designs - Free for all
Card Mad Fairy's Digi Days - Romance
Creative Card Crew - for a loved one
