Happy Wednesday!!! Phew for a short week, this sure has been a hectic week! Maybe because I'm still trying to play catch up from last week, when my son felt it was necessary to pass on his stomach virus to me!! Boy that bug sure knocked me on my bottom! I hope and pray that none of you out there catches this thing! 

 Anyways, if it's Wednesday, that means its Inspiration Time over at The Cutting Cafe!!! This week, Regina asked us to use one of her Valentine treat boxes, bags, or pockets. I chose to work with the Heart Pockets, and since I missed last weeks inspiraiton due to illness, I chose to use the Long Sentiment Tags as well. I made this card to send to my mom for Valentine's Day. She loves reading her Bible and motivational books, so thought I wanted to give her a bookmark also. So when I seen the Heart Pockets files and the Long Sentiments Tags at The Cutting Cafe, I knew they would work perfectly together with what I wanted to do!!
I love the versatility of Regina's files. I loved the hearts pocket, but I wanted to position the hearts differently. So, I printed one of the files that was closest to what I was wanting, and then printed another copy for dissection. The first copy I used to make a blank pocket, and the second I used to cut out the hearts for placement onto the blank pocket. Just what I wanted!! And how can you beat 4 pockets for $1.50?? YA CAN"T!! So hurry over to The Cutting Cafe and check out this file along with all the other fabulous printable sets and files that Regina has. Remember that all files come in PDF format and most also come in WPC and SVG formats.
