Red, White, & Blue Pocket Letter

Red, White, & Blue Pocket Letter!
I did this Pocket Letter for my partner, "bishsticks," in the July Pocket Letter Swap hosted by "bonprof" over at! (My partner's "real name" is on the tag, I covered it for privacy here). It also works out to go with Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge! I really do love working on Pocket Letters, they're like nine ATCs (especially since they are the same size, 2.5" x 3.5") all put together to form a bigger picture (AKA: Theme)! Then I get to decorate the card protector! In the swap hosted by "bonprof" themes are given (generally two + "choose your own") and the assigned partners come to an agreement about which theme they will do!  Most importantly, this is a "pen pal" type deal! It's what the founder/creator, Janette Lane, originally intended! And my little note (it doesn't have to be a book!) will be going in the top left corner, and I will put little "goodies" behind each card!
