Hey Buckaroo!

Happy Thursday!! OK - before I get into the deets on this card - I want you to know that no one in my household is walking around missing a pocket on their jeans - LOL!! This card is for today's Ways to Use It Challenge over on SCS - you can view the challenge here - today's challenge is ways to use fabric. I had grand plans to piece a fabulous pair of fabric pants onto one of my Hannas - but the thought of cutting up one of my favorite shirts for the sake of creativity -well - I reached for an old pair of my DS's jeans instead - LOL!! We recently cleaned out closets - and while we do donate most everything that my kids outgrow - there are a few things that have stains and holes in places you can't really explain - so those get thrown out - and if you have boys - you know what I mean - LMBO!! So how about salvaging the pockets from those jeans you're gonna throw out to make scrapbook or card embellies?? - you could tuck some journaling in there on a scrapbook page or a gift card on a card - the possiblities are endless. For this card - I just cut around the pocket to get it off the jeans and then adhered it to my card with glue dots. I went with a western feel to my card to match the denim - I colored and cut out Horseshoe Riley from Hanna Stamps and stamped a Cat's Pajamas senitment on my die cut stars. I did some distressing on the tan cardstock pieces with Cat's Eye Chesnut Roan ink. I added some hemp twine to some of the stars and a couple of star brads to the pocket. I did some machine stiching and edge distressing to the background cardstock as well. Thanks so much for stopping by!!

How adorable Candice! I've saved some of my Dh's old jeans just for this reason. Who knows when an extra pocket will come in handy? LOL Love this! xxD
