Pocket Letter

In my filing cabinet I keep coming across a few sheets of neon card.
 Each time I see them I think I will never use them - they are just not me!!

Anyway today I came across the

So I thought I would use my Neon card in a Pocket Letter...consisting of 9 ATCs.
I wanted to use the triple stamping technique so I cut three rectangles in white and three slightly larger rectangles in neon for each ATC.

I offset the white rectangles and stamped each set of three with an image from
Mini Cracked Critters Set One with black Stazon.
I then interspersed the neon card...

This is my favourite image:

but I also like this one:

I then added a scattering of buttons to each one and  arranged them in a folder. Here's the one above with buttons:

These Cracked Critters are based on cracks in the sidewalk.
I was reminded of these stamps when I saw these images on Pinterest:

I will link this ATC to this week's Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge

Here is the total Pocket Letter:

I will link this to Lost Coast Portal Challenge #24
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #59 F is for Fugly - very ugly neon!!

It is quite difficult to photograph once in the folder...but here goes...
I decided to try and get a more random mix of the images...

I would also like to mention the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity's 1st Blogiversary
