Pocket Tags

The May technique challenge at my NZ forum is to make a Pocket Card.  I struggled a little... did some Googling and visiting You Tube and Pinterest.    And then ended up doing something very simple.

I also made one for my friend Suna for her swap as she is away for 6 weeks. 

I started with a tall tag by Prima which I scored and folded.  I then took a Pretty Pink Posh die and another tag and made a little tag.  I stamped the Kaisercraft sentiment and clear embossed it.  I trimmed a rose from one of the tag and added it to the smaller tag on my pink pocket tag and for my brown tag, I die cut a Memory Box butterfly.  I took some heavy weight black card and traced around a stand I have to make a stand for the tags to sit on.    They have been sent off to their recipients. 

On Friday 22nd I will have spend 20 years working at the Inland Revenue office in Takapuna and today my manager, Anna, provided a couple of cakes... one Carrot Cake and one Lemon Maderia, to celebrate.  She made a nice speech and gave me a lovely card.  Tomorrow my current work area and I are going out for lunch.  I can't believe where the last 20 years has gone!  Scary stuff.

Thanks for stopping by.
