Pocket Friend

Hi everyone,


How is your week going?  Can you believe that Easter is nearly here and April will be gone before we know it.


What do they say - ‘Time flies when you are having fun!’ and I have been having fun creating a card for the colour challenge from Colorlab Challenge # 36 and the sketch layout from Create with Connie and Mary # 145.


Here are the images from the challenges and if you click on the images you will be taken to the respective site:




I have used Early Espresso for the base of my card and I have also used the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.







Stamp set: Pocket Silhouettes

Card: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade, Whisper White
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade

Accessories:  3/8” (1 cm) Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, 1/8” (3.2 mm) Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive




I really love the colour combo, it goes so well together and the sketch is simple and quick.


I just love the embossing folders they make such a quick background to any creation.


Let me know what you think and leave me a message.


Keep creating….. Meg x
