MIM #91 & MFW-Journaling Cards

It's Sunday night and here I am getting my card posted for two of my fave challenges:

Make It Monday - Faux Pockets
Dawn McVey is hosting this week ~ her card is amazing and she makes this technique look so simple

Moxie Fab World - Journaling Cards Challenge

 Cath has five challenges from this new Paper Crafts Magazine Special Issue "Tips & Tricks". I haven't had time to check out all the great cards posted yet, but plan to soon.  There is one more day for these challenges, so I am going to give them all my best shot and you should too.

My Card ~ click on images for more details
  • Base card is Stamper's Select White from PTI; green polkadot is from American Crafts
  • Stamps: Bee trail and leaves (on pull out tag) are from Spiral Bouquet by PTI 
  • "Birthday numbers" from Madison Park invites pack; Journaling card 'pocket' from KI Memories; Shipping tag is part of a gift from my sweet friend Maureen, whose Blog you should definitely check out here:  Watermarks Design
  • 3-D stickers from The Dollar Store; Ribbon & button from my stash   
I will have to try this technique again, my card seems to be all over the place and not at all what the original in my head looks like :-{
It really is a cool way to give a gift card or cash money inside the pocket. Of course, the recipient may not bother to open the card if the fun stuff is on the outside  :)

Thank you for stopping by tonight.


  1. Love your outside fun stuff and pocket Helen!

  2. Cute, cute pocket card. ;-) I love the DP's and the way you topped your tag. Very nice. ;-)
