The most prominent example of perceived weakness I can pull from my own life came about 10 ye…
Here is the card I created for this weeks dare at DCM to use a pocket. I created my pocket from Acetate and filled it with BG tags from the Lily Kate line, tied them off with lots of yummy ribbon and added rubon words and images to most,The tags could be reused on craft projects or just left in the pocket to be pretty! I am also thinking of putting it into the caardvarks ribbon challenge as it sure uses a lot of ribbon compared to what I usually do !
