Pocket Card

Good Morning, time just keeps slipping away from me, I feel like my house still isn't straightened out and I can't seem to get caught up, but I wanted to stop in and update the blog and share some pictures from our vacation.

First I made a pocket card, there were instructions in the Quick Cards, October 2013 Magazine and once again they were all in metric, why oh why didn't I learn that in school, I found a chart on line but you just can't get things perfect that way, anyway, I think it turned out ok even though it may not be exactly how theirs looks :)



The first picture is with the tag still inside the folded card base.  I had to lean it up it won't stand on it's own.   The second picture is with the tag out of the base.





Papertrey Ink -- Text Style, Hodge Podge papers
Heartfelt Creations -- Vintage Floret die
Spellbinders -- Back to basics tags die
Dew drop for center of flower
Martha Stewart -- leaves punches
Stampendous -- Birthday Assortment sentiment stamps
Marvy -- Scalloped Punch for tab on tag
Button from stash as well as crochet thread

Now here are some pictures of our trip, this was all taken on our first day there.

 
This is of Lake Gogebic, it is the largest inland lake in the U.P. of Michigan
 


You can see Lake Superior through the trees here, just look at all those great colors, greens, blues, tans and oranges.  I just love to sit and listen to the waves crashing on to the shore, it is so peaceful to me.


In the Porcupine Mountains they have a look out they call Lake of the clouds and this is the view from the look out.  It just puts you in Awe of just how wonderful God's creation is, just takes my breathe away.

Well I don't want to over due the pictures for you so maybe I will post a little with each new card I post.

I hope your week is off to a great start,
Thanks so much for taking the time out to stop by, and leaving your comments it means a lot,

Connie
