Pocket or Pants?

Hello all.  Well, there are times you know, there are times when I create something and think "yeah, that's not bad" and then there are times (more than the others) when I think "what possessed you?" and this was one of those times.

My effort for this week's LILI'S LITTLE FAIRIES challenge of Anything Goes started off as an idea for a pocket card.  I'd never made one and thought it was about time I put that right.

How difficult can a pocket be?  We've all seen them and know exactly what they look like.  So why does my pocket look more like a pair of pants?!  I guess the frilly edge doesn't really help matters ......


Still, at least the pocket filling, otherwise known as a tag, worked out much better!


I love this little bear!  

The ingredients for this disaster are:  Stamped Image Lili Of The Valley - Patchwork Bunch Of Balloons,  Medium Distress Inks (ReInkers), Papers a mixture of Basic Grey, Sentiments both Lili Of The Valley  Border Punch Martha Stewart  Finishing Touches stunt-double stitching

Not quite sure what my darlin' dad is going to make of this!!

Hugs, Sxx

I'm sure he wouldn't care what it looked like, he would love it anyway and there is no reason he shouldn't love this.

Fairy Elise is spot on my furry friend. This is perfectly fabulous! I love it, hun. It absolutely is an awesome idea and your colouring is, as flipping always, perfect! I love this image! Stop using that punch - I sold mine on ebay and every time I see someone use it it looks totally fabulous and I want to poke myself in the eye. Hugs, your friendly neighbourhood Whack Job xxx
