Hey, another Joy Fold card :-)

Hi everyone.

Wow, middle of August already!  Only another 2 1/2 weeks and the girls will be back in school for the new school year.  Can't believe that Shannon goes into grade 10 and I forgot to tell you, but she made Honour Roll again for the second semester, so she was an Honour Roll student for the year 2012/2013. So proud of her.  Emily goes into grade 7, and she also had a really good year, proud of her too :-)

So onto today's post.  We are at week 33 at Polka Doodles and this weeks theme is Have a Heart.  We are all using different download bundles this week.  Did you know that there are small download bundles for as little as £3.99 (thats around $6.50)?  I am using the bundle called Love Birds for my card today.

I made a joy fold card last month, and so I thought I would make another one.  It's such a great card to make and I don't know why I haven't made more.

All the elements in the card are from the Love Birds bundle, except of course my little bit of ribbon :-) The topper on the front panel is a pre-coloured image and is on pop dots for some depth.

I love the papers in this set, and those little birdies and I love the shade of blue.  I have inked all the edges of all the layers.  There is even a template for a bird cage.  Hmmmm - maybe I will give it a go.

For the inside I added a little sentiment circle. This is from the Love and Cherish CD, which the Love Birds bundle is an element of.

So go on over and take a look at this weeks challenge and my fellow teamies have made some wonderful creations for your inspiration.

If you enter you might even win one of the featured bundles this week.  Just don't forget, when entering a Polka Doodles challenge, you can only enter 10 challenges including Polka Doodles.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
