A hidden message and some candy

Well, I'm back home now and firstly I'd like to thank everyone for the wonderful e-mails and the kind comments and wishes sent to me and my family; all your prayers and kindness have overwhelmed us and they meant so much to us. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Now I am back it'll probably take a few days to settle in and get back into the crafting swing of things, but there are a few items coming to this blog during this week. Here is the first one.

Today at the Pixie Cottage challenge we're joined by the fabulous Bev Rochester as our guest designer. She's created a wonderful sketch for us and the theme chosen to go with it is to make a pocket or a tag. Remember that you can chose to do the sketch, the theme or, if you're feeling adventurous, you can do both.

While you're over at the challenge site - make sure you enter the blog candy draw of some wedding images drawn by ArTish; they are gorgeous.

I'm entering this into :

Passion for Promarkers 53 - Anniversary week - Anything Goes

Stamp Something - 2 of something (I have a few 2s - 2 patterned papers, 2 scallop circles, 2 woven ribbons)

One Stitch At A Time - Furry Friends

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Blogoversary, Celebrate/Birthday

My card uses one of the new stamps designed by Di Carubia called Baby Maisy; isn't she a cutie?

I made a pocket with the green patterned paper that runs across the card and slipped a sentiment on the back of the circular element that slips inside the pocket.

Items used:
Stamps: Baby Maisy
DCWV Linen Closet paper stack
Prima painterly Petals Hydrangeas
Tim Holtz Old Paper and Antique Linen distress ink pads
Thin Satin Ribbon

Thanks for looking.
