Birthday "Pocket"

It's a "sunshiney" day here today...yah...I LOVE the sun..
it makes me happy, (well except it shows me all the dusting I need to do)

How do you pick a challenge to do??
do you make a project, then find a place to enter?
Or, do you pick a challenge, then make a project for that challenge??
Me, I find a challenge that right away grabs my attention...
then, I might find a few more places to enter it after it is done!!

So this morning I found this fun challenge at "a little red wagon" for "pockets"!
It just so happens, when I was pulling things out of my stash, that one was an
already stamped and cut pocket!

As I mentioned in a few posts back, I have these clear bags with things I cut,
stamped, colored, etc...just bits and pieces of things that I have sorted by
color in the bags....the pocket and flower came from the "blue" bag.....
I am making myself use some of these up here and there.

The pocket was stamped on watercolor paper for a white denim look...
It is a Unity stamp...the flower is an SU, stamped and punched.

I made my cute birthday tag with a bit of embossing at the top and
stamped with another SU stamp...

The background designer paper, I picked up an entire 4 12/ x 6 1/2 pad at a
garage sale last Spring.  There is this girl that has a sale every Spring and
I have not missed it for years.  She sells lots of paper, stamps, Sizzix dies for
so cheap that I buy lots...this little pad of Die Cuts With A View has 72 sheets
and it was only $1.25!!!!!

Well, that's it for me today...I have to head out while the weather is good!!!

So cute! I still have that SU! punch, too. LOVE the pretty sentiment. Heck of a deal on the paper. DCWV always has pretty paper with LOTS in a pad. Hard to resist, but especially for $1.25! I don't get around to many challenges, but when I do it's challenge first, then card.

This is precious! I recognize the flower and sentiment by SU...I have those stamps, too. The pocket looks unfamiliar, but it is darling.

Thanks so much for leaving love at my place recently, and Happy Valentine's Day!
