Desperate measures and so on...

Remember when I was looking for kraft card everywhere to use it with my Prismas? And how long it took me. And how I was trying out all sort of alternatives out of sheer frustration?

Well, this image is stamped and coloured on MANILLA ENVELOPE, lol Beat that!

OK, now that I've sufficiently amused you I should also mention that this card is for Stamp Something DT and our theme is TAG OR POCKET SOMETHING. Please note I have used both! (feeling very proud of myself here!) Our sponsor this time is Whiff Of Joy so head over for a chance of fab prize!!

The papers are from Jillybean Soup. Sentiment is inside the pocket, on the tag and no, I didn't take a photo...duh. The wish list behind the image is a stamp from Whimsy - so cute and fitted the card perfectly!!

This is one of those cards where all sorts of bits and pieces keep finding their way out of the drawers onto my desk. I like the all-kraft effect though. Lush.

I'd like to enter these challenges:
City Crafter - Make It Krafty
Double Dutch - Christmas
Spoon Full Of Sugar - Christmas Card
Allsorts - last minute Christmas
Hanna and friends - Christmas  
A Crafty Little Place - Tag It!

Thanks for looking and big hugs!

a great card, and the envelope has coloured up beautifully, a lovely job. I love your tag in a pocket and your jewel centred cards. I sympathise with your Kraft woe's. I've finally got a tiny bit of it (wrapped round a parcel from Canada) and my printer ate it ..... first go. It didn't even print me one I've got no printer because I can't get the paper out lol. Hugs lin
