SFTW - Challenge #4 "Pocket Full of ......."

Helloooooo and a happy Friday to you all. Gosh it's week 4 already of our challenge over at Stampin for the Weekend, can't believe how quick these weeks are flying by.

We have another very generous prize from our sponsors this week, Paper Makeup Stamps have very kindly donated these lovely stamps. So why not join in, you never know you could be a!!!!

We have a new Guest Design Team member, the very lovely Nancy is joining us this week, check out her wonderful creations over at her blog. Thank you Nancy, it's lovely to have you as our GDT.

So onto this weeks challenge which is entitled "A pocket full of ....." we'd love to see your interpretation of this title, you can choose to make a pocket card, add a pocket on your card or whichever you feel happy with as long as there is a pocket of some description somewhere...

Below is what I came up with, I made a lil pocket on the actual card, then made a wallet for stamped images. The papers are all K & Co, the edges have been torn and inked, plus I've got me sewing machine out again....wooo hooo!! still don;t know how to use it properly!!! Tilda has been coloured with distress inks, the sentiments are SU, lots of lace from my local market, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, string of pearls also from my local market.
For the wallet I used the leftovers from the card, again the sentiment is SU. I have sent this card to a very special blogging friend, who always cheers me up with her lovely e-mails, thank you Zoe for being such a lovely friend....
I think we all enjoyed this weeks challenge, the rest of my lovely fellow DT members have come up with some gorgeous creations, you can check them out by visiting their blogs or visiting SFTW, all links are on my sidebar. I hope you are able to join us with your versions of "A pocket full of..." would be lovely to see what you come up with.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend,
luv 'n' hugs xx vicki xx
