Lookie What I Did!

You know what pocket letters are, right? In case not, they are trading card sleeves filled with homemade ATC-sized art and little bits of crafting goodies that you send to your friends.  The theory is that you received on in the mail and then promptly send one of your own to that person.

And by promptly, I mean within the next 3 years. Or at least those are the guidelines I'm going by.

I've received three of them myself and in return I started with the one the that had the furthest to travel (some 6000 miles and change). I sent it to this girl who kind of sort of like cats, so that made the subject matter easy to identify.
These ATCs made up the first row. I have whole selection of pre-printed cards from some Project Life Clone and since they were cat themed, this was the purrfect opportunity to use them. Of course, if you like cats, you know all about the Cat Butt and how it plays a prominent feature in cat ownership.
 You also understand the whole cats in boxes thing that shows up in the second row. And of course, we can't have dogs in our cat themed project, now can we?! Do you like my attempt at coloring a Siamese cat in the last ATC?
Here's the whole thing put together:
and the back: 
And  a close up of the wee tag:
The Fine Print: Cat butt stamp by Eat Cake Graphics, It's a Cat Thing by unknown, Just for You, Tabby Cat, Box Kitty, and Siamese Kitty by MFT, Orange Kitty (middle row) by Hero Arts, and Cool Cat Orange Kitty by Stampendous? (i forgot). Pawprint punch by EK Success. Fake Project Life cards by A Muse Studio.

Impressive PJ. Cats, especially kittens, are a lot of fun. A nice idea pocket letters. I would need three years to put something like this together, provided I remembered what it was for after three years. SMILE.

Hugs and Blessings,

Yay, Judy! I LOVE it! OMGoodness, I am loving every single ATC! You did an AWESOME job! And, yes, we know all about cat butts in this house. Honeydew and Brian have a running joke. He sticks it right in Brian's face at every opportunity and we laugh every single time! Love, love, love this! I know Fiki will love it too! Very impressive PL!
