I made a pocket card for dessert, the posies slide out of the pocket - (see pic 2) I'm not THRILLED with this card….but it works. :) I had fun combining the water and alcohol based markers, I don't have my coral set yet, it's on the way, so I used the water based calypso coral marker along with the lightest pumpkin one and the daffodil and olive sets. Kinda fixated and obsessed with this stamp set…..I tried to use something else, I truly did, and eventually I will, as I have my first order on it's way from new catalog…..I was so pokey because I was so busy with grand children, but alas our kids who live overseas left yesterday….to go back, and my son Mike and dil Jenna left after a visit too….it's been a blue day here in Ohio……gotta smile cuz it happened but too busy crying cuz it's over. Happy Tuesday everyone!

I *LOVE* this pocket card, Karen. Your coloring, as usual, is amazing. My first order is on its way, too, with that stamp set. I cannot wait to get my hands on it, and hope to come close to what you've done with it. Anyway, love the card!

How clever you are Karen - the design is lovely and the vibrant colours are wonderful ... I'm not playing today but wanted to stop by and give you a cyber hug, to make up for your family all now gone to their own homes. Chin up dear friend!

Gorgeous pocket card Karen!!! Love your coloring and the sentiment on the inside is awesome! I know a bit of what you're going through as much of my past month has involved DGKs here and then me there, helping them move... just got home Sun and feel lost now, even though I'm exhausted! Bitter-sweet days so I can sympathize!!! Hugs!

What a gorgeous pocket card. I love all the embossing and your beautiful colouring and that bright cheery bow. Hopefully your cheery card will help to cheer your heart a bit after the sadness of your family leaving.
