Pocket Money card

Sometimes it all just comes together quickly - and other times you gotta struggle to find what has to be done to finish a project - don't ya think?

Well this little card just worked out perfect and in record time. I was on the phone with my dear friend Sharon, and SU! rep - and needed to mail her a replacement check (why you say? Well because on 1/12 I mailed her a check for an order and dated it 2009 ---ooops)

I used SU! friends 24-7, pink c/s (the soft pink one I forget which) and some scraps of SU! designer paper.

I measured the length of the check and cut my c/s to be a bit bigger (in future I would make the c/s about 3/4 inch larger than the check so the pocket would work better - I couldn't tape down the sides) .

To make the pocket - I just used my scor-tape to attach the brown patterned paper to the bottom, attached some pink c/s trimmed with a heart border punch and added a thin strip of stamped coordinating c/s to cover the seam.
Easy Peasy!! And I made it real fast while on the phone laughing about my silly date!
I love this one - maybe its the soft pink with the brown - maybe its the bird and the flourish thingie --- whats it called...damask I think?
Thank goodness for craft it wed or I might never get to post -!
