Daring Cardmakers - Pockets of Fun

The new dare over at Daring Cardmakers is as follows:

"I’d like to see lots and lots of pockets. Pockets full of posies, Brass in Pocket (love the Pretenders).Pockets on clothes, Pockets from clothes, Library Pocket, Pockets of this and Pockets of that."

I love to make pocket cards (maybe it has something to do with the requirement that every outfit I wear has at least one pocket), so I've done two cards for this dare.

I was feeling the urge to use the hammer again, so the first card is held together with eyelets and has a "Happy Birthday" greeting tucked inside.

On the second card I used some tiny punch-out tags (just love little stuff like that!), and made a pocket for a thankful heart.
