Stampin for the weekend challenge - My entry

Phew it sooooooo hot here in Dorset today. I should have gone food shopping but couldn't get the enthusiam to go so I stayed at home and have made a pocket card instead he he he!!!
I have made this card to enter this weeks Stampin for the weekend challenge - to make a pocket card or a wallet card so here is my pocket card.
The card has been made with double sided 12 x 12 paper from hobbycraft and folded to make the pockets. The image is a Whiff of Joy stamp called Willow with flower basket which I have coloured in with Promarkers and then cut out with some oval nesties. The tags have been cut with my Sizzix Tag Original red die . I have threaded eskimo wool through the hole. The flowers are Primas with a brad in the middle. Thanks for looking x


  1. Hee hee I am glad you stayed and made this lovely card for me to look at I love the fresh colours. That Whiff of joy stamp has been coloured brilliantly :)
    Thnk you for joining us at stampin' for the weekend and good luck.

  11. Well I don't blame you one bit Julie, who would want to go food shopping when you can stay home and!!! I hate food shopping, trying to think of different things to buy each week, card making wins everytime. What a stunner you have created, you may have no food in your cupboards but you have a wonderful card here and those papers are beautiful, love the tags with the eskimo wool, fabulous. Thank you so much for staying home and joining in with our challenge this week at SFTW, good luck xx vicki xx
