Have or have not?

Hi Stampers!
I have a busy schedule the next couple of days but I wanted to get a posting up for you so I went to my trusty "Stampin' Success" magazine with the hopes of copying a project.  "Stampin' Success" is the magazine the Demonstrators get monthly that is full of ideas and business tips.  If you would like your own subscription to this wonderful magazine  you just need to take advantage of the best deal in the Stampin' Up catalog, and  right now even a better value during Sale-a-bration, and order your Demonstrator Kit!

Now back to my posting!  I found a great little project that SU recommends that I can put together in a little box to take with me, and if I find someone interested in what I do I can quickly show them a project!  I love it!  Only I didn't have any of the products that they used in their little project, starting with the die cut.  Not to worry, however, because I can copy and steal "CASE" with the best of 'em and I came up with my own project loosely based on the original.  Here it is:
So Cute!  This little pocket card measures 4 1/4" by 2 1/4 inches, just like the original.  Instead of using the Sizzix "Pocket" die, I made the pocket myself cutting the naturals ivory card stock to 4 1/4" x 4 3/4" and using my Simply Scored tool to score at 2 1/4" and at 4/1/2".  I used the 1 3/4" punch in the middle panel to the the finger grip area.  Here is what it looks like with the card pulled up:
You could probably tuck a gift card in this little pocket as well, but I'll stick with a nice note to someone special!
Do you wonder what I do with all these cards I make?  Sometimes they go to someone special for an event (ie my father-in-law's bday card), some of them get sent to customers that order from me through my website, and others I would be happy to sell to you if you were interested!
