Don't think I'm awake yet!

I chose the papers for this card with this week's Cowgirl's Sunday challenge and then got carried away with the idea of making a pocket card, totally forgetting that the Cowgirl's challenge also included its own sketch - d'oh!!

I thought I'd have a break from making Christmas cards.

The striped paper is from my scraps box (haven't got a clue where it came from), the other papers are BG phoebe. The tag is plain on the back to write on.

I really must still be sleepy because it took me ages to remember how to figure out putting a strut on the back so the card will stand up.

This is for:

Party time Tuesdays 8: 'pocket card'
Character cafe 26: 'pocket card'
Dutch dare 82: 'criss cross card'

Lots to do week 29: 'shapes' - the triangles of the criss cross
