DCM weekly dare - Pockets

a tissue, a tissue, we all fall out....
this week at Daring Cardmakers
it's our Lynne's turn to dare us all...
It's my turn - (Lynne) - to set the dare this week.OoooOOoooOOooooOOOoo!!!!!!!!My first Dare. I’m so nervous, I can’t believe that it’s my turn already.I’ve gone for something nice and easy - had to break myself in gently.POCKETS I’d like to see lots and lots of pockets. Pockets full of posies, Brass in Pocket (love the Pretenders).Pockets on clothes, Pockets from clothes, Library Pocket, Pockets of this and Pockets of that. Get the idea? Pockets and Pockets of Pockets.
Loved this dare Lynne, thanks for the fun :O)
My Pocket holds a Chipboard decoration, that can be hung up in your home, or just kept with the card. And my pocket is a COFFEE FILTER PAPER size 4
so other bits I've used are - Basic Grey Printed Paper, Stamp-It Stamp #siset003lk available from SCRAP A WHILE, Autumn Leaves flourish stamp, paper flowers, Tapemeasure twill, Maria George crystals, Tuscan Rose Image, Tim Holtz Distress ink - Walnut stain, computer generated words printed onto more coffee filter paper, and ofcourse my sewing machine.
So have you Dared to DARE yet?... COME ON I DARE YOU!!!
