Blog Candy and Mother's Day Pocket Card

Happy Sunday, Everyone!! Here is a card I received from Teri of "Big Ideas From A Little Girl " Teri is a blog sistah from Hawaii!! Yay! Isn't her card AWESOME!! It's so pretty and colorful. It's very glittery in person! GORGEOUS!!

Teri recently celebrated her 1 Year Blogaversary and she was giving away blog candies to celebrate her one year of blogging and guess what!! I won a prize. Surprise, surprise!! I rarely ever win anything so when I received my package, I was SUPAH thrilled. It was a surprise because I didn't even know I won. I love surprises. . .especially when its happy mail!! LOL!!

Be sure to drop by Teri's site. She has GORGEOUS stuff to share . . .all her creations are AWESOME!! Be sure to scroll down to check out my goodies!!

Whoohoo! Check out the blog candy I received from Teri!! Awesome! I love American Craft Elements ribbon. . .one of my favorite brand of ribbons. I also received felt flowers, vellum scrap pieces, a flower chipboard, turtle wood shape, and a SU stamp! I love them all!!!!

Thank you Teri for the wonderful blog candy! I definitely will put good use to these awesome stuff!!

Here is a pocket card I made this morning. It was just sort of a random decision to make a pocket card. I had a scrap piece of designer paper and cardstock in my scrap pile. I folded it like a "gate fold" card and folded the bottom to create a pocket. I then tied a ribbon around it. That's it. There's no template or anything that I followed. It was just a random sort of thing, KWIM?!!

I stamped the sentiment and image on to a tracing paper, not Vellum. They're similar but the tracing paper is a little thinner than vellum but the end result is similar.

Nothing much else to this pocket card.

Here is the card out of the pocket. It's just a simple design. Lately, I'm drawn to simplicity. Just a change to my normal busy cards!! Sometimes simple is good. . .don't you agree? It's sure faster to make a simple card!! I love it!

Card Details:

Stamps: SU All Year Cheer II, Autumn Leaves Swirl 2
Paper: SU Blue Bayou, ATD designer paper, DCWV textured cardstock, Tracing paper
Ink: SU Blue Bayou
Accessories: Making Memories Daisy ribbon, Oragandy Ribbon, round corner punch
