365 Cards Sketchy Sunday!

Hello To You! It's the New Year. What an amazing thing to still be here in 2010! Today's 365 Cards sunday sketch, provided by Pam:

Here is my take on the sketch. Now please disregard the occasion this is for. My mom asked for a card that she could give some money for Christmas and I had this sketch to do, so it's a little out of date. But I did think the sketch looked like a great money card:
I folded this as a regular card and cut off half of one side and stitched it up after stamping it. 
Here is a close up of the stamping and sponging around the edges:
You can see the tag separates from the base. My mom gave me this great idea for holding money. I used an old picture holder from a wallet and cut one of the sleeves from the pack. I taped it down onto the tag and slipped the money in! When you remove the money you can see the writing from the giver:

That's it! This is a perfect way to give money to anyone. And can be adapted to any occasion.
 So people, I got a Cricut for Christmas from my mother!! Can't wait to get using it and showing you the fun things that can be made. I am collecting all the cartridges I can!

Happy New Year to each of you. Hope this year is full of wonderful times for you and those you love.
Thanks for stopping by!
