Coffee Cats - Pocket Letter #2

Hello, everyone!  Welcome back to the final day of the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  The hop closes tonight at 11:55 p.m. Pacific so you still have a bit of time to link up your winter/holiday projects featuring images of coffee, tea, or cocoa.


I am back today to share a Pocket Letter! These are a hot trend in blogland now but I was surprised when I posted my first one to discover a lot of my readers have not seen them before!  You can read about the origin of Pocket Letters here. They are fun to give and fun to receive!  I won a Pocket Letter from Michele during the Cat Lovers Blog Hop so I decided to make one for her in return. We are both cat lovers so I went with a theme of coffee and cats. For the stamped images, I used a chalkboard technique - first time I've tried this!


I will share each pocket separately and below will list products used.

Your pocket letters are lovely Kitty. I'm sure you had fun doing them. The chalkboard ones look really great and the coffee napkin background is really busy and fun. I followed your link as I'd not heard about pocket letters before. I used to do lots of ATCs a few years ago but only do one monthly swap now. Barbxx

I'm very impressed by how you achieved the chalkboard effect, have tried it once of twice but without success, yours look fantastic!
Sorry I haven't been around much lately, I've been busy with birthdays, Christmas events and preparations. But I'll try and catch up as much as possible in the coming days. On my way to a hairdressers appointment and then another birthday party:)

This pocket letter is so fantastic, I love the idea in sharing some of the candy in each pocket, great gift for another scrapper sharing the many supplies you get and may only use on a couple cards. I'm coming back to read the history, but have to get on with my comments.
