Retail Therapy

Hello Sassy Fans!!! How are you today? Still in a heat wave where I live and soo wishing is was winter. My son asked my today if I prefer the hot or the cold and I have to say cold. You can put on a lot of layers to warm up, but there's only so much you can take off, right!! Ok, well, on to my little project. I knew that I wanted to use 
'Retail Therapy' for todays work and I thought something with a gift card would be perfect for her, so I began looking around and I found this...

... diagonal double pocket card(click for tutorial I followed) and thought, "perfect!" Oh' it was so easy to make too, I highly recommend giving it a try. I think the hardest part was picking out the Dp...needed something with a nice pattern front and back and I wanted to use one I hadn't already used. Once that was all done I colored her up to match, and the design being as it is I don't think it calls for too much stuff so, like I said, easy peasy! The larger tag is just big enough for a gift card and the second tag just has a cute sentiment stamped on it. I'm not completely sold on the craft, but I couldn't think of a better color to use either.

Here's  a close-up and that's it for me today. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by later to see what Maria has to show you.

 Have a great day!

    Love n hugs

  4. Love the unconventional Christmas colours you used & that trim is brilliant making this so different. The shading of that skirt & jacket plus the scarf is so velvety you can almost feel the brushed denim/velvet material.
