OK, nice this time...

I already entered the Naughty or Nice challenge with a naughty card, but I thought I'd pop in with my last Valentine share & link it up again as a nice entry :)

ETA: BRAIN FART! I totally meant to enter in the Pocket challenge at little red wagon also. My kingdom for a working memory.


Supplies: papers & die cuts from K&Co; Wilton doily; red rhinestones from Dollarama; library pocket from the fabulous Lindsey of Bashful Blogging :) 


When I bought this packet of die-cuts I knew there were a few in it that really seemed meant for scrapbooking rather than cards, but I came up with a card idea! The library pocket makes it easy for the giver of the card to write down their reasons, and  then tuck it back into the pocket. Since the pocket was deeper than the card, I put a strip of Scor-tape down near the bottom so that the card didn't fall in too deep. 

Happy Valentine's Day to those of you who celebrate it - around here we really never have, and since at the moment I'm fighting off a kidney infection (booo, hiss) I wouldn't be any fun to celebrate with anyhow. At least I'm starting to feel human again!

xoxo,
Jessi

A nice little Valentine's card. I remember when library pockets were all the rage. We need to bring them back as they are much fun.

Super cute Valentine love the use of the doily. I have never done one with a library pocket, but love the idea of the hidden message.
