A Pocketful of Love & more

Happy Friday!! I don't know about you, but this has been one l-o-n-g week. I'm not sure what I've been doing, but it certainly hasn't been stamping. Since I've gotten more involved in my scrapbooking lately, I'm having a hard time getting my card mojo going. So yesterday I went on a search for some challenges to help me out. I came across Color Throwdown and decided to play along there. I haven't done a color challenge in FOREVER. So off I went to my stamp room with thoughts of Black, White & Melon Mambo-ing in my head :) A little stamping joke, ok...not so funny.

This is what I came up with. A CAS Valentine. I love how you can add just about anything to the outside (or inside) of that pocket. I was daydreaming yesterday about all of the different things I'd love to have coming out of the pocket. I had come up with what I thought was an amazing idea a few months ago, but I guess the PaperCrafts peeps didn't think so because my card wasn't accepted :( Honestly, with all of the submissions they get, I don't know how they ever choose!

I may as well share it here. I'm going to hang on to this card and send it with one of the boys on their first day of school next year. OH, or, Conner has the PSSA's in March, maybe he'll get it then.

I used A Pocketful (Wplus9), Happy Trails (PTI) and Rainbows & Clouds (Lil Inker).

That's all for today. I hope you have a fabulous weekend! I'm going to head back up to my stamp room and try to get a couple more cards done for the current PaperCrafts call.
