Up 'n Away

Good Day All,

How are you all doing?? Well July 4th is this next week and so we loaded up family and headed over to one town over to view our traditional Fireworks display. Had a great time with the kids and my granddaughter celebrating her first 4th of July. : )

With that being said, for the New Challenge over at One Stitch At A Time Challenge 240 Anything Goes Red, White and Blue. So it seemed like a good time to introduce to you the latest "Craze" people are talking about, "Pocket Letters".  I am sure most of you have heard of these, it's all over facebook and blogs. People are making and swapping with one another, like you do with ATC's. I have to tell you that some of these PL's are gorgeous, amazing and just fun in any theme you choose Shabby chic, vintage, birthday, movie's, floral, butterfly, and many more. You can make these PL's using a 9 pocket baseball card sleeve and some of your crafty scraps.

Today I am sharing my second Pocket Letter using an image from the StitchyBear  Digital Stamp Outlet by RSP - Full of Hot Air. I really enjoyed making this and this image was perfect for this Pocket Letter.

Here it is:
The Image from RSP - Full of Hot Air. Colored with my copics, using BoBunny 
Anthem paper collection, and gold stickels

with the Hot Air Balloon on top 

Paper - Bo Bunny Paper Collection - Anthem
Accessories - star gems, gold stickels, red, white and blue trinkets.

I hope you are inspired. I invite you to join in One Stitch At A Time New Challenge #240 Anything Goes with Red, White and Blue. My team sisters have really created some wonderful projects to give you some great inspiration, too. :D 
Thank you for stopping by, wishing you all a great week ahead. 

Happy 4th of July

Stay Crafty

  1. Wow. Like the red/white/blue; colors that do not fade. Especially like the hot air balloon since I'm fond of watching & photographing hot air balloons. Here in Plano, TX there is an annual balloon festival in Sept. Not heard of pocket letters. The pocket letters are interesting. Yours is wonderfully arranged & embellished. Not so sure I'd be able to give it away & postage must cost a bundle to put this in a bubbleproof protective unbendable envelope/pkg.
