A House of Cards

Happy belated Valentine's Day!

Sorry I didn't get by before today, but we went out of town for the weekend. We went to Mobile for Mardi Gras. Fun, fun, fun! I think we caught our weight in beads, moon pies, and lots of other fun stuff. (Well, not really but almost. ;) )

So since I missed posting these before Valentine's Day, I hope you don't mind me posting them now. These are a couple of pocket cards I made using the Sweet Shoppe collection from Collage Press. I used the patterned paper, die-cuts, and letter stickers. This line was just perfect to use for Valentine's Day, and I thought the pocket cards would be appropriate for all of the candy that the kids and I like to give for the holiday.

These cards could be easily changed to fit a number of different occasions though. Very quick and easy to do. For these particular cards, I used my Cricut and Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge to cut out the pockets. I did make a slight adjustment and cut (by hand) the front of the pocket a little shorter, so you could see the candy a little better.

Since I haven't really been posting on this sad little blog all that much lately, I have lots to share. I will plan on being back lots this week to put a little life back into it. See you again soon, and thanks so much for stopping by!
