Just Us Girls #32 - Technique Challenge

Happy Saturday! Busy weekend with Mother's Day and all, but Just Us Girls is making time to bring you a technique challenge. The fabulous Mona challenged us to make a pocket card. There's a tutorial on SCS for one, but there are all different ones as well. I chose to do a criss-cross pocket card because, frankly, I know how to do them without directions, and I was running late, so it was just easier. And I love these type of cards. Here's mine. I picked up this umbrella dp from my LSS last weekend. It's from the Quite Contrary line by My Mind's Eye. The polka dots are actually the reverse side. Love this! So I pulled out PTI's Scattered Showers and the Scattered Showers Additions sets. The umbrella is paper pieced using the dp. The cardstock is SU's Bermuda Bay and the ribbon is Crushed Curry. Love this combo! I added some star dust stickles to the polka dots on the umbrella and on the raindrops.

Here's the inside pulled out. How about trying a pocket card? We'd love to see what you do! Stop by the JUGs blog and use what the girls have done as inspiration. We have Teresa Kline and LeAnne Pugliese as guests this week, too!

Have you thought about becoming a JUGs girl? See this post for more information.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Mother's Day!
