In My Pocket........There is a PussyCat

Morning Crafters,

Thank you to all of you who joined in with the challenge last week - I loved seeing all your snowy Pockets.

This week I have a Cat in my Pocket, well, not literally cos that would be a bit painful (claws) :O))

Here is the template for your Pocket:




I made this Pocket a while ago and I just haven't had chance to use it yet, so here it is.

I used my most beloved stamp for this Pocket. It is an image of my cat Poppy who is no longer with us. I have probably said this before so I won't bore you too much but she is the reason I am a crafter for when I lost her, Grim bought me a crafty TSV to try and help me think about something else and I haven't looked back since!

Anyways, this year Jennie from The Artistic Stamper very kindly used my favourite photo of Poppy and made it into a stamp for me.




This Pocket is my little tribute to Poppy - I printed off the words and then matted them onto red and black Bazzill cardstock. I edged the whole Pocket with Fired Brick Distress Ink and used some Grungeboard to make her a crown and some wings. The closure is actually a small piece of velcro which I have hidden behind the wing. Inside the Pocket I had just stamped, matted and placed another image of her and added some more words and some ribbon. The hearts are also made from Grungeboard - I simply coloured with Fired Brick and spritzed with a mixture of water and gold mica paint.



All the bits and bobs I used for this Pocket are available from The Artistic Stamper, including the stamp of Poppy, so if you would like to have your very own Poppy in your collection, I would be really honoured.

As usual, once you have made your Pocket, please leave a comment here and add a link to the place you are showing yours - then I can come and visit.

Have a good day everyone, happy Bonfire Night - be safe with those fireworks peeps.
