Doodle Poodle

I was inundated with happy memories when I was making this card for the Polka Doodles challenge this week. (Black and white plus one other colour).  It reminded me of an evening in Caen ( I lived there as a student studying French) This evening me and some friends went into a small Creperie in the old town for some liquid refreshment and a bite to eat.  It was a tiny place and you could just squeeze through the door when you were literally confronted by a small bar.  On this bar was seated a Pink male poodle with buck teeth.  It was the funniest and campest dog I have ever seen, but it was so lovely and clearly one of the attractions in addition to the cosy ambience.  So this is my tribute to Le Poodle.

It was made with some misc black and white paper (think it's Making Memories), the border and the sentiment label are Polka Doodles.  The frame is from Deb's crafty diecuts, and I stamped the sentiment with Martha Stewart alphabet stamps.  The dog looks like such a snob. The stamp is from the latest Do Crafts pampered pets and I just love them even though I don't usually opt for pets on my cards. My hubby thinks I'm barking, well they'll just never understand the craft!
Catcha later.
