Pockets ~ Double D Challenge

Good morning, friends ~ Double D Challenges is starting a new challenge today and the theme is "Pockets".
I wasn't quite sure of the direction I wanted to take for this challenge and then I remembered I had this fun backpack die from Spellbinders called "Pack It Up".  Backpacks have loads of pockets!!

One of the fun factors about this die set is that the top flap flips open revealing a pocket that you can tuck all these school supplies in.

I tucked the apple into the small pocket to keep the flap closed.  When the apple is removed, the flap opens, and little hands can be kept busy by pulling out all the little school supplies.

This die was a previous Small Die of the Month from Spellbinders, but it's still available and it's on sale for 50% off!  

I made six cards (only four cards would fit in the photo), using lots of colorful papers from my stash to send to my great little nieces and nephews to encourage them in the midst of the school year.

I hope you'll visit the Double D Challenges blog to see how my talented teammates were inspired and play along.

Here is a direct link to Pack It Up die at Spellbinders.

Here is a mood board to inspire you:


And here's what you could win when you play along:

Thanks for stopping by!
