Pocket Full of Hugs


My DMC dare card for this week. For my pocket I used the jeans pocket template from Crafty Templates to make a pocket shaped card then decorated it with Love Elsie fabric, Circus Rose paper and some random buttons. I filled my pocket with hugs, made using different alpha stamp sets stamped on some card scraps.


Lynne I have a funny story about the origins of that Pretenders song Brass in Pocket from my mum and dad. Back in the day a few years before I came along my dad was in a 'rock band' and the band played a few 'gigs' with the Pretenders. In Yorkshire speak 'Brass' means money and when Chrissie Hynde heard them talking she thought it was cool and wrote it into her song. So that's what it means she's got some brass in her pocket and she's off on the town! Funny eh!
