Pocket Letter #1 ~ Texas Style!

Hello bloggie friends.  I was recently introduced to Pocket Letters.  The more I look and read about them, the more I'm liking them :-)

I decided to send my very first one to my SIL, who, as you all know by now, lives in Holland. Since we live in Texas, I thought it would be fun to make one all about our home.  Of course, I could not pass up on including some real "eye candy" in the form of these hunky cowboys :-)  If you click on the picture, you will be able to see it better.

I did not write a little letter telling her all about myself, because, let's face she knows me pretty well.  I have been married to her brother for almost 30 years, so I decided to include a little note with some cowboy quotes instead.

I also believe, that you do not have to include little gifts on the back of each pocket, but I thought it would be fun since she also enjoys making cards.  I kept all the little surprises to where it would not make a very bulky package so that I could place it inside a regular business envelope (9" x 4").  In case you're wondering about the $1 bill - it's so she can buy a lotto ticket when she next visits ;-)

I hope you had fun looking through my very first Pocket Letter.  My SIL loved it, and all the little surprises.

Thank you for visiting today.
I wish you all a very happy and crafty week.
