May 1, 2013 Handy Bird

Doodle Pantry Handy Bird, and DP,  file folder card from my stash

May 1 and NEW RELEASE day over at Doodle Pantry and for my release I choose the Handy Birdie.  I "found" a couple of these file folder cards while looking for something else and I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.  My granddaughter/Husband are wanting to start their new home this coming fall so I thought this was the perfect card to send to them because the inside has a gift card (die from AMUSE Studio) that I am sure he can buy a couple of much needed tools. What a good time to shop as everything (except gift certificates) are 25% off from May 1 thru May 6 so if there is something special you have been eyeing or say how about Handy Bird now is the time.   

Challenges:
  Sister Act - Anything Goes
  Simon Says - Just Because
  Celebrate the Occasion - anything Goes
  Cards for Men - Animals
  Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
  Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes
