Speedy Fox & Friends 162 - Pocket

Happy Summer Saturday!  :)  I hope you had a good week.  We went on a little family adventure (photos to follow soon...after I have slept a's just 1:20 am!)  this week but we have made it home just in time to talk about Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge.  This week we are going to make pocket cards.

Once again this was a first for me but it really is quite simple to do.  I followed this video tutorial: stampingwithmichelle .    Please visit Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps blog to see the fabulous inspiration my teammates have for you!

I used two "Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps a HC" sets to create this card. All the sentiments and the butterfly on the front are from "Glad Glads".

I just bought a couple of Copics that were clearanced this week and much to my amazement they actually are the perfect color for the designer paper I used.  So good in fact that my butterflies get a little lost among the flower paper so here is a close up.

The tags pull out of the pockets.  I created a tea bag holder and a the second tag is a bookmark.  I always get a kick out of using this sentiment for a bookmark!  "Here for you"!  (giggle!)

On the inside I used the butterfly stamp from the  "Cracked Hello" set.

Thanks for looking!  Hope you have a great a weekend!
