Treehouse Thursday Challenge # 058

First of all, I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to all who played along with the Treehouse last week. I had fun looking through your FABULOUS work! Now it is time for another Treehouse Thursday Challenge and each week with the challenge Ashley (the creator of the Treehouse) is doing a random.org drawing from all who play along with the challenge.
The RULES:
1. use the challenge theme as described
2. provide a link to your creation on the challenge post inLinks
3.You creation must be a new one, remember the idea is to get your creative ideas flowing and get you creating.
4.You do not have to use TREEHOUSE STAMPS images to be eligible for the drawing but if you have them we would sure love to see you use them.
5.Your entry must be linked in the inLinks no later than July 21, Wednesday to be eligible for the drawing.

This weeks challenge is Pocket card and was provided by our DT Gloria. Here is the  TUTORIAL suggested by Gloria.
I love the tea pot set from TH July new release (shop here)

As you can see that I made a pocket with faux stitching (those thin double-sided tape works wonders!). Originally I WAS going to sew it up with floss, but then I kind of like the faux stitching without the work! Why not!? It's a crazy lazy summer after all! 
I think this makes such a lovely surprise in the mail for someone special, don't you think?
We hope you join in on this fun challenge and make sure to include THT in your keywords when you upload to Splitcoast. Also provide a link below to your blog post so we can see what you made.
Now check out what the Design Team created for your viewing pleasure and hop on over to their blog to read the details about their samples by clicking on their names:
