Yip, it's Saturday, and time for a new challenge at Catch the Bug, and this week we are asking you to make a pocket card.

The De4sing Team have some wonderful inspiration cards for you, and this is mine :

I used that cute image called "Wee One Angel - side cloud" one of the Wee One Angels available in the Bugaboo Store (remember that at the end of this post I will provide you with all the useful links). She was coloured using Copics, a white gel pen and some Twinkles glitter paint.

And oh my gosh, for the card, I must admit that it was a comedy of errors when it came to making the card, cos I cut, and folded, stuck the bits down, lifted them up again, and what started out as a twisted easel card has ended up as a twisted easel pocket card! LOL - I may just have invented a new fold (wink-wink). But as they say in the classics, "it was alright on the night", and the card doesn't look too bad, don't you think?

This is a close up of the little card:

Here are those useful links that I promised:
