CIty Crafter Challenge Blog - Week #47

Another week over which means another challenge over at City Crafter Challenge Blog, first I would like to thank the team for having me as their Guest Designer last week, I really enjoyed it. This week's host is the lovely,talented Ros and she has choosen the theme 'In My Pocket' ,so your creation has to have some sort of pocket.



I love this week's challenge and couldn't wait to get in my craft room yesterday afternoon as I had an idea floating around in my head so I prepared dinner and got all my housework out of the way then got started on my pocket card. I love all the stamped button cards that are popular at the moment but haven't got any of the stamps so I decided to make my own version.I made two pockets to fit my two tags, I used Cosmo Cricket papers, the dress form is a new TH Alteration die and the sewing stamps are also Tim Holtz.


This is definitely a two in one card, with a greetting  and a small gift which will go to one of my crafting friends so they can use the pins and buttons.

Back Soon.
