Postcard Pocket

Happy Wednesday, my friends!

I have a little postcard pocket to share with you today. This one came together very quickly due to several sources of inspiration. 

Firstly, I watched my friend Linda's video yesterday. She never fails to inspire me with her fabulous tutorials. I've made pocket pages before but Linda's method is super fast and doesn't waste any paper. You can see her video HERE. You'll want to subscribe to her channel when you get there because she's extremely talented!

Also, yesterday began a new challenge over at Twist of Faith Card Challenge. Their sponsor this time is StampArt Design by Kathryne, so I simply must play along! When I visited my friend Tracey and saw her sweet DT card, I knew I had to put a postcard into Linda's pocket and link up! 

Then today I was visiting my friend Jennifer and found out she is having a challenge. We are to make a card that tells someone we are thinking of them, and also include pink somewhere on the card. Well, I have the pink covered! On the back of the card I stamped "Thinking of You" and left lots of room for a note. 

So thank you very much to Linda, Tracey and Jennifer for the inspiration! Thank you to all of you for stopping in to visit! :o)

Indeed, I'd agree you have the pink covered on this one :D LOL Love these papers!

This is a really cute idea for a card. Postcard I should say.

From all the things you create and post on this blog I often wonder when you sleep. Girlfriend...the only answer I can think of is you have a system that works for you and you sure do "work" the system :D

AWESOME, once again.

Love you my friend - Leslie
