Hot Child in the City...

Runnin' wild and lookin' pretty...
                               Nick Gilder

That's what kept running through my head as I was making a card for the very first...

Could not get that song outta my head...
it's still there...
and you'll see why in a moment!
But Suzanne gave us a wonderful inspiration pic for this month...

and because I'm fairly new to WPlus9 with only a handful of sets...
I decided to just focus on the colors for this one...
and went with the bold yellow, vibrant orange and hot pink!
I pulled out the fabulous A Pocketful set...
I have wanted this set since the first time I saw Anya use it on her blog...
and it's finally in my possession...
and how could I resist cutting a hot pink pocket and singing "Hot Child in the City" while doing it?
And if you're too young to remember hot pink jeans and/or "Hot Child..."...
I don't want to know!

So here's what I did...

I kept it pretty simple...
heat embossed some white "stitching"...
and yes...
once upon a time (*cough...the 80's*) you could even buy them this way in the stores...
and then added some of the adorable little blooms included in the set to fill my stylin' pocket!
Added some fabby plaid ribbon that matched the color scheme perfectly and viola!
Sweet and simple!

Hope to see you along the way...

  1. Hi Friend! I love the embossed denim and all the songs you sing to yourself when making these fabulous cards. I can't believe you handcut all those flowers! The effect is well worth it, and the ribbon looks gorgeous. :) Thanks so much for playing along!!!! HUGS!

  8. Renee, Hot Child is your song girl! This one is a real winner - love the hot pick pocket full of posies - absolutely stunning! You nailed this!

  9. So cute!! I love the popped up flowers and that ribbon is such a great addition!

  10. NOW this is a pocket full of beauty. LOVE the flowers coming out of the pocket, the images that are popped up, the colors and that YUMMY plaid ribbon!!! I REALLY want this set but sometimes I get a bit nerdy and think oh this tread will change so do i want to invest in a trendy stamp or do I want to stay more classic ........ it is kind of like clothes you know I really only buy trendy items at H and M because I stress when I pay for something that will be out in one season!!! I did buy a pair of skinny crops this past spring that are navy with white polka dots and when I saw them I thought I could be Jackie O or me wearing them so I bought them ......... lets just say they were an investment piece LOL

  11. So sweet--love the pocket done in pink brimming with all those flowers! And that ribbon adds a perfect touch! Fabulous job with the inspiration photo!

  12. Ah, takes me back to a time less complicated, wearing coloured jeans. Back to reality, love this card with the flowers popping out of the pocket, could be a good idea for little girls birthdays - one for the inspiration folder.

  13. This is so pretty. I love the pink pocket with the white embossing, and think that I may have had a pair of pants just like that, back in the day (remember Dittos?) Colored jeans are back in, FYI, and of course, you are so stylish you already know that.

  14. Darling card Renee! LOVE the pocket full of sweet posies!

  15. What a sweet little pocket scene! I love the embossing on the pocket, and those flowers are just so cute!
