Wet monday ..AGAIN !!!

Hello, I am sick and tired of this weather but I m not gonna go on and on about it cos at least we are lucky and our house is not under water as so very many are across the heart goes out to all those people that are faced with the nightmare of loosing everything to water....terrible!!!
You know when you are lucky enough to make a friend by total accident? Well that thing happened to me recently, I ve ended up buying something from this seller over on ebay(USA) and this lady(a SU demonstrator) was selling a lot of her SU stuff, so email her regarding shipping and......the rest like they say is history.We ended up swapping emails for ages and we just clicked shes such a sweetheart. Anyway through her I ve managed to get my greasy mitts on the latest SU catalog..and is juuuust delish!!! Touble is now I want most of So Cindy watch out...for my angry hubby lol.
I ve also received some of the goodies I ve ordered last week and I m in love with the Samantha collection by Crate Paper so much so that I had to play straight away and created this for the DCM latest challenge wich was set by Lynne, and here it is

It's my turn - (Lynne) - to set the dare this week.
My first Dare.
I’m so nervous, I can’t believe that it’s my turn already.
I’ve gone for something nice and easy - had to break myself in gently.

I’d like to see lots and lots of pockets.
Pockets full of posies, Brass in Pocket (love the Pretenders).Pockets on clothes, Pockets from clothes, Library Pocket, Pockets of this and Pockets of that.
Get the idea?

Pockets and Pockets of Pockets.

So I ve created this with my new yummy papers of course...I ve used the Happy Hearts from Stampin Up, to stamp and emboss the hearts onto the paper that is actually the packaging havent cut the proper papers yet!!!then I ve popped them into the faux stitched vellum pocket with foam pads for added dimension. Some pretty lace a Papertray Ink sentiment and that s it !!Oh also I ve used my sizzix embossing folder for the small dots.Ok off to cook tea and have another browse in that fabulos catalog andf put a order in. See ya
Shop Stampin' Up!
